Re: lower light has been conquered

Well done Mark! Mirage is tough down here at the moment and winds can be average to unreadable so an even bigger achievement.

Don't underestimate Mark at any level because the man can shoot!

Re: BEST SCOPE FOR F OPEN

I personally like the Nightforce comp. There may be other scopes that have INDIVIDUAL features that are better than the NF but I think the NF is a good package. I like the size and weight, easy to read windage and elevation (not just number size but that the increments are in a incremental order), C...

Throat angle

With the newer VLD and hybrid type bullets what is the ideal throat. Throat angle as defined by PTG reamer print as I'd call it the lead angle but they'd know better. Also two other measurements which seem obsolete to me are the length from boltface to "throat" and the diameter given at th...

Re: RECOIL and THE BLOEMING CASE

I think you will see the top 4 calibers will be 284, 284 "improved" (AI, KMR, shehane), 7saum and 300wsm with the last two making up the majority.

Recoil comes down to a lot of things but stock design and bag setup can make all the difference if done correctly.

Re: Newby question about barrels

gyro. If you had two pieces of 20mm thick flat bar and you wanted them to be 15mm thick. you take one and put it on the mill and gradually deck it down to 15mm in .5mm passes with cutting fluid running over it. You now have a piece of flat bar 15mm thick you take your second piece of 20mm flat bar a...

Re: .308 Headspace

if you want a basic idea get a piece or pieces of sticky tape and stick to the back of the case. use a razor blade to cut the tape to the exact size of the case head. keep layering until it becomes firm and then be a sure base to shoulder. Best way is to do moderate load with a hard jam so the case ...

Re: F-Class World Championships 2017

I Would have to echo Scott's sentiment here, it was a fantastic range, the facilities were great and the military personal were quite welcoming/forgiving all things considered. If you take into account probably over 500 civies "invaded' their base with all manner of firearms and vehicle, and t...

Well back home and the dust has settled, caught up on some sleep and domestic duties and let it all sink in! An amazing trip with some fantastic people.

Re: Canadian F-Class Nationals 2017

Great to see a few of the boys and girls near the pointy end! bloody good work Rod and Laz! I'm taking my time with accurate plots to evaluate loads etc but it does hurt the wind reading. I think a fair few other Aus shooters are doing the same so we are probably shooting better than our positions w...
