Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

I reckon these range energy limits are complete BS.. Everyone knows these regulations exist but not once have i seen them enforced or anybody tested.. I know in Connaught there were random checks and anyone who got medals was tested as well. No one failed out of 400 shooters. I think the vast major...

Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Ifhow Many rounds through the barrel? If it is getting on a bit then rechambering back to 28” or so will knock some speed off, while still keeping enough pressure to keep your ES/SD down for the longs. I would be sticking with 2209 and picking bullets which shoot well jammed to keep pressure u if yo...

Re: Bisley style shooting

At various times over the last few years, I've raised the idea of having a Bisley style shoot at one of our local ranges. It hasn't yet happened, mainly because some of the older shooters give less than glowing reports of their experiences with it. I think we need to accept that its not everyone's ...

Re: Bisley style shooting

10 plus two would run 18 minutes plus prep time for 2 shooters. On paper this would make it faster than normal string fire in erratic conditions. How about scoring time - when one shooter calls the value & the one just fires accepts it. At a scant minimum of 5 seconds, that adds another 2 minut...

Yes I would pay the deposit for a 2-3 day shoot. If it was all longer ranges with blow off shots each day it would be simple to fly over with one gun and some mates sharing car hire for 2-3 days.

Re: Mastering velocity ES 284W

Some of the earlier 183 Sierras were undersized and might have gone well in the tight freebore you have, but the later lots are closer to normal size, while the Bergers are very slightly oversized. It is likely that a gunsmith can run a standard spec reamer in your chamber without having to touch th...

Re: Bisley style shooting

The first time I shot Bisley in Competition was at the Canadian F Class champs in Canada before we shot the Worlds. I am from a Benchrest back ground and generally shoot normally at a medium to fast pace string shooting. I found the transition to Bisley very easy and was by no means as SCARY as peo...

My vertical 4s were still in the black, so probably grouping about 1 metre vertically :roll: .


Just wondering, what was your ES/SD in testing?

WTB 6SLR dies

Just checking if anyone had any 6 SLR FLS dies or a 6 SLR Wilson seater which are surplus to their needs and they want to sell?

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

The organising group recognise that some people may have some difficulty in getting enough elevation on their telescopic sights, so we have made what we call sighting boards. These boards are 300 mm in height, 2400mm in width and painted black and white in the same dimensions as the long range targ...

Re: 7mm rsaum questions

I found the same thing when I used a Redding FLS bushing die, the bushing only reach down about .040" short of the neck shoulder junction. I found the Whidden FLS die sized down closer to the neck, maybe around .010" short of the neck/shoulder junction. I now initially size the neck down a...

Just made it home. Well done Lou Shallis in F-Class - he had his SAUM humming. And also congrats to Geoff Willis in F/TR and Phil Bain in MR. Thanks to all who organised this event - very well run - as usual at MR events, relaxed and easy going. Conditions were very good apart from the rain on Sund...

Re: Bisley style shooting

I am also a new fan of Bisley style shooting and hope to get to do some more of it. As mentioned, it helps improve wind reading and tactics in general. It certainly makes for a change of pace and adds some variety to F Class in Australia. Another side benefit is barrels not heating up and burning ou...
