  1. NLRC F-Class Training Weekend: 27 and 28 January 2018

    Hi All It is now confirmed the STICKLEDOWN RANGE WALK is happening
  2. NLRC F-Class Training Weekend: 27 and 28 January 2018 The NLRC F-Class Section is presenting a 2 day refresher course for F-class shooters on 27 and 28 January 2018. Following last year’s successful training weekend, the course is geared to introduce shooters of all levels into F-class by combining practical and theoretical knowledge. Experienced international shooters will be presenting lectures, advising and coaching in both the FTR and OPEN sections F-class. This is presented by the F-class section of the NLRC with the support of the NLRC committee. The NLRC has invested in comprehensive reloading room to support the endeavours of the F-Class shooter, and we are presenting the core skills and knowledge to shooters, that the bridge the skills from novice to club shooter. Participants of 14 years or older are welcome to attend. The NLRC has an active Youth shooting programme. This is NOT the GB F-Class Association course that Mik and co, have presented so successfully for many years, The GB F-class association course will be running at the end of Feb 2018. The GB association League is one of the best in the world in terms of organisation and quality and the gap can be very intimating for most shooters looking at joining our sport.

  3. NRA Council Ballot

    For a start I am standing for General Council.. .not a specific discipline. Secondly every discipline needs support and encouragement. For example CSR and FCLASS have enjoyed growth.. but EACH has appeal and members we need to nurture. We have a world class facility at Bisley that most do not realise how unique and valuable it is. That said - regional support and development - is key because simply we cannot ignore that a massive swathe of members are in the regions.
  4. NRA Council Ballot

    Tis I the Tim Stewart as per the mugshot. i was travelling abroad for work and the passport photo was all had with me to complete the form. So feel free to insult or make derogatory comments under the label of "humour"..that says more about you than me. I am simply trying to add value to the NRA .... as our shooting sports are being attacked from all sides...and we can do better if we have our own house in order and our total membership across all discplines actively engaged
  5. hi all BUMP.. Opportunity for some structured training and interaction with experienced F-Class shooters. The Lectures cover topics applicable to all full bore shooting disciplines Regards TIM
  6. "All caliber subject to the the Bisley range rules.s and performance " Its a training course... not a competition .. so if someone arrived with some exotic calibre as long as its Bisley safe he is welcome to participate and learn. 0.338 Lapua Magnum is in fact the limit on Bisley .. i.e you CANNOT shoot it. The F-Open rules are "An ‘F’ Class Open (F/O) rifle may be of any calibre up to and including 8mm and the overall weight must not exceed 10kg including all attachments (such as, but not limited to, its sights and bipod, if any). NB: An ‘attachment’ is defined as including any external object (other than the competitor, his sling (if any) and his apparel) which recoils (or partially recoils) with the rifle, or which is clamped, magnetically or viscously held, or in any other way joined to the rifle for each shot, or which even slightly rises with the rifle when vertically lifting the latter from its rest(s)." So does that include the 8.99 mm?
  7. In the FTR class its a 308 WIN (or 223 if you brave) with a scope, bipod and a rear bag. The OPEN class allows ANY calibre up to 0.338 and allows the use of a rifle rest (is not a bipod that is mounted onto rifle). You can actually also use a bipod on your open rifle All caliber subject to the the Bisley range rules.s and performance SO arriving with a ".17 Whizzybang" or old iron sighted 303 SMLE and sling etc ic not optimal or appropriate
  8. Morning ... the Harris bipod would of course suffice. There is so much to learn and be aware of that you would benefit. You may find on or two participants have have equipment you can try or loan and experiment with. Its NOT a competition.. its a learning opportunity.
  9. Morning all .. sorry late reply been travelling and lousy internet. This is NOT the GB F-Class Association course that Mik and co, have presented so successfully for many years, The GB F-class association course is only in Q4 of 2017 This is presented by the F-class section of the NLRC with the support of the NLRC committee. The NLRC has invested in comprehensive reloading room to support the endeavours of F-Class shooter, and we are presenting the core skills and knowledge to shooters, that the bridge the skills from novice to club. The GB association League is in my opinion one of the best in the world in terms of organisation and quality and the gap can be very intimating for most shooters looking at joining our sport. As for content ,, it is based on the content and presentation method I have used on several lectures presented at the NLRC. And yes the content is similar since the foundations of success in F-class are similar.

  12. Bullet pointing for FTR

    If you get the shooting shed pointer you won't regret it.. some trim the meplat first some don't.. I am in latter Trimming reduces the BC and creates bigger weight variation and is very time consuming
  13. Bullet pointing for FTR

    If you serious you point... It does improve group size / verticals by reducing the spread range of BC by uniform tips Plus worth about 0.75 moa reduction in elevation It's in effect the equivalent of launching bullets about 120 fps faster for a 155
