If you conform to the same limits as Belmont like you would for the QRA and National Queens you will be fine.

Just be mindful of the wind at Pinjar - it's a killer!

Thanks Brad , I'll work on my 2930 fps load .
It's a shame as I have worked up a 3015 fps load for 180 hybrids. I think I'll struggle to put into competition somewhere to put it to the test.
Our energy limits could hobble us especially Qld in upcoming overseas comp that is coming up in 2021.
Rules are rules. [-X

Well come down to the NSW Queens. Much more generous energy limits, as well as mainly long range. The best Queens program in the country.

Probably best to just avoid competitions with restrictive energy limits or outdated ETs, there are plenty of other options so why not spend your money elsewhere ??

There may well be a higher limit it’s probably best to contact WARA direct.

May just do that Mr Davies and come and say ga day to the NSW people! Will be next year though, having a break , but gearing up for state teams .

In regards to Et’s , as long as they are maintained not a worry . One can easily get screwed over by a poor marker . Looking forward to going to WA , but definitely have to make the team yet . I’ll live within the limits , all good . I have a bit of faith in the 280 ai . Was amazing to push a 180 ( cats out of the bag !) at 3015 FPS with 10 FPS spread over 7 shots . I loaded one case 10 times and no issues with pockets. I have backed it off from 3045 FPS . Initial test seems promising. No I can’t tell u how I did it lol! But less signs of pressure than my 2930 FPS load . Anyway accuracy will always trump speed . So see how we go ! Getting off topic , sorry .
But I might shoot it at a mates farm who has 2 km line of sight , but just at 1000 yds and see how it goes ! Thanks everyone for the replies! :D
