Re: CCI Primers

I have always used CCI Primers. BR2, BR4 and 450 small rifle mag primers. never had a problem over 25 years. Suggest that you check your firing pin. also check and make sure that there is not too much heavy lubricant on it. You might benefit by stripping the bolt down, washing it in degreaser and re...

Horse racing is a sport and the only thing getting exercise is the horse.

Re: Ultra Long Range Challenge (NSW) 7-10 October 2016

Unfortunately the NSW Match Rifle Association advises that due to the large amount of rain which has fallen in the Coonabarabran area, the Ultra Long Range Challenge from 7-10 October has had to be cancelled. The range has had a huge amount of rain and is not suitable for traffic. With a forecast fo...

Re: F-class is an advanced discipline. $ stops new shooters

The sporting/hunting F Class outlined above is exactly where F Class started about 20 years ago. (Fun Class) At Nowra we used to shoot the above and then we introduced Precision Long Range Rifle - now known as F Open. We were the Club that had all the original F Open 10 ring targets printed and woul...

Re: ULTRA LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

John. The targets for 1000, 1100 and 1200 will be the Match Rifle targets. The 1500 yard target will be the 700 metre target. They will all have an "X" ring. Alan. My understanding is that the Coonabarabran range is a classification 7.62 range and as such 300 win mag are not approved. Shou...

Mike H is on the money. I too have been using Moly coated projectiles for 15years without any problems. Moly does not start to metl until 1185degC.

Re: F CLASS 'X' RING

I am referring to the 'X' ring or super 'V' only. On the 300m target this is 35mm. Just slightly larger than a 50 cent coin. At Nowra, we run a white X on our electronic targets. The afternoon sun shines on our targets. Target Rifle shooters have never complained. We are only talking about a very sm...
