Hi, I am a new member in this forums. I am from Campbelltown area in NSW and just hoped there was a proper range in the area. All the proper ranges are around 1 hours drive for me. Anyways, here are my babies :D

Welcome to the sport mate . Ur rifles will be competitive . Just have to learn how to wind read , which u never really master . Only get close ! Never give up and read as much as u can on the net and books . Also a good ballistic program helps . As u r already doing . If can shoot tiny groups at 100 m . This will keep u in good stead at a 1000 yds . GS 😃😃😃
Ps u'll enjoy the fellowship more than the shooting !

Thanks, I intend to, on Friday, for the Anzac day shoot. Watch out for me shooting with Bankstown Chatswood.

The only thing is, my new load is not properly tested yet, as I ran out of 2208 powder and it is nowhere to be found. I did manage to get some 2206H and and pushing for equivalent muzzle velocity, but it is a long shot.

2206H will be fine, I use it and 45.5gr gives me same performance as an extra grain of 2208

I have never shot them with 2206H. I will be testing them out after work tomorrow at 50m in St Marys range. I will use the tightest group and keep my fingers crossed (except while pulling the trigger).
