Re: fx 120 i

I bought one, I was looking for a nice high performance scale and the Fx-120i fits the bill. The good two things about it, which are worlds apart and completely different from all the cheapie electronic scales that I have used, are: ⋅ It actually holds a stable zero and doesn't drift &sdot...

Re: New V8 scope from Zeiss

... mrad adjustments..... Scopes with mrad adjustments usually have clicks that are 0.1 mrad (often labelled "1cm at 100m"), or half of that .05 mrad (which is what this V8 scope uses). For field-expedient purposes (including coaching!), one can treat a 0.1 mrad click as being 1/3 MOA (it...

Re: Some Comparitive Score Statistics

Alan - would love to see the spreadsheet. Not for the formulas (your explanation is complete and tells me everything I was looking for), but I am curious about the raw MOA group sizes being shot by TR etc, even with your cautionary explanations about interpreting it.

Re: Some Comparitive Score Statistics

What a great graph! I would also be very interested in seeing what it looked like without normalizing the group sizes; it would be neat to see the actual group size SD for TR/FTR/FS/FO shooters, across the different distances. Not necessarily of general interest, but I am intensely curious about the...

Can somebody explain to me either or both of the following: - what a Juenke machine measures - how it makes this measurement. I've seen one, and have seen it used. It has to do with sorting/selecting/assessing bullet quality. By measuring (by means unknown) of an important (but unknown) bullet param...

Non-members at Geelong shoot under instruction of accredited Range Officers. After about 3 or 4 visits we insist that they become members. Same situation as any non-member wanting to have a go on a range. I think that satisfies the insurance problem. W do pick up quite a few club members this way b...

Re: F/Open ammo restrictions at the 2017 FCWC. These restrictions are a part of an agreement under which DCRA uses the range (which belongs to the military). AlanF - you are correct, getting an answer from Scott Bissett (Chairman of the 2017 organizing committee) is about as reliable a source as is ...

Alan - not nearly as bad as you make it sound possible. Plus we are finally getting our range staff to be active and diligent on this sort of stuff.

Daniel, I'm not suggesting anything particularly nefarious, but let me ask you. Do you time the shooter you're scoring for or challenge him if you perceive that he's dragging his tail somewhat? In principle you are supposed to, though in practice it is very much the exception - for whatever reason ...

Daniel, it's great that you have managed to see the post and provide some concise feedback in the process. One thing I've always wondered is, how do you keep track of the 45 seconds? Is there a time clock like in chess, where you take it in turns bashing the button? Or do you have another method? I...

It will be great to see an Australian team in Ottawa in 2017. Hopefully you'll send one at least as strong as the one you sent to Raton this year, that should keep everyone on their toes! "Bisley Style" means firing with either two or three shooters on a target. FCWC-2017 will be done with pairs-fir...
