ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

#1 Postby Cliff Austen » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:21 pm

The Ultra-Long Range Challenge is on. After being washed out last year we have programmed it for Saturday October 7 to Monday October 9, 2017, at the Coonabarabran Rifle Range, competing from 1000 to 1500 yards.
Details are on the NSW F Class Web Site.
See you there. Cheers. Cliff

Are there any limits at coona for shooting F open?
Apart from calibre?
We don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training. Archilochos 680-645 BC

Tim. I am not sure what you have in mind. But the limits are in accordance with the SSR's for F Open.
Coona is a 7.62 Classification range. Any calibre up to 8mm. Energy is not to exceed 4182 ft-lbs or 5675 joules.
Cheers. Cliff.

This will mean those with 300WSMs can compete, no problem.
Should be a great shoot, cant wait.
How many are coming from interstate for this one of a kind shoot? It should be well worth the travel.

You can use your 230s. You wont want to shoot that one quickly.

Sounds good. Do people camp at the range or travel from Coona?

Quite a few camp on the range and gather around the camp fire or put swags under the big shed. Others get together in Coona.
