Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

#1 Postby AlanF » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:25 am

We have an F-Open team for windy Wellington in January - looks like all NSW and Vic shooters. http://www.nraa.com.au/announcement-nraa-f-open-team-f-class-trans-tasman-teams-matches/ . Congrats to two members of my club, Albert and Antony. Good to see coach Greg Warrian back into the action so soon after Canada.

Thank you Alan,

After the amazing example set by our real national treasures, I can only hope that we continue with the good form.

Ahem :-k ...

The story was on the home page of the NRAA website at the top of the NRAA News - its no longer there :shock: . You'd better hold your horses - they might have decided not to sanction it :roll: .

Given the debacle with Barnaby and Co, a background check might have revealed that I lived in Auckland for a number of years :shock: :shock: :shock: Maybe they are confirming citizenship...

No the limit is 4500 Joules which leave you 2882 for a 180 gn and 2,966 for a 170gn pill.

Yeah, crazy army restriction. Plus us lowly 284W owners have to put the brakes on the SAUM boys somehow :-)

Have a look here https://www.nranz.com/rules-and-policy/shooting-rules/ at the energy testing procedure pdf. There is an energy chart further in.

In a way that's good , I only have to worry about .284 and 7:08 Ai and can leave the 280 Ai at home .
A little bit less work ! And less gear .
