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.

    Bullet pointing

    You have a world class producer of specialist reloading equipment in the Shooting Shed They can make pointer systems that are better and cheaper then the Whidden or Hoover products http://shootingshed.co.uk/oscom/index.php?cPath=40&osCsid=02202d7b575c09ee8d68483cc33a32c7 If you want to run a test before committing... Bullet Pointing Service [BP001] The SHED bullet pointing service. How many times have you seen something, read the reviews, it sounds good on paper however is it going to work for you? Bullet pointing is one of those unknowns, there is no doubting the potential benefits of pointing bullets for long distance stuff (As an example my 7mm shoots over 1MOA flatter at 1000 yards) The thing is will it work with your bullet and rifle? Now you can find out without having to buy a bullet pointing system, simply send us 30 of your bullets, we will point and return them. We will need a couple of bullets for set-up however you will receive back a minimum of 25 bullets pointed and ready to test and if you do choose to purchase one of our bullet pointing systems we will knock GBP7.95 off the price.

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

    Hi All It is now confirmed the STICKLEDOWN RANGE WALK is happening
  6. Eagernoskill

    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.

    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

  9. 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
  10. "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?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

    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
  16. Eagernoskill

    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
  17. Hi all TARGET RIFLE and F-Class Shooters The NLRC is organising the Reload Swiss Easter Meeting 2016, and it will fall on the weekend 26-28 March 2016 at Bisley. We hope that you will feel able to support the event to make it a success under the North’s leadership. Our principal sponsor is Reload Swiss this year, hence the name change. Because of the sponsorship, the number of competitions and the value and number of prizes have increased. As well as individual competitions there are team competitions, and there are Under 25 competitions. There are planned to be over 100 prizes across TR and F Classes. We are hoping the Meeting will attract a good number of entries from the UK and abroad. There are special reduced entry fees for shooters under 25 in full time education, including those at university. We intend largely to use private markers and provide supervision in the butts. We hope that will ensure an appropriately high standard of marking. We have attach the F-Class Programmes and Entry Forms. The TARGET RIFLE (TR) Programme and Entry Form is in the first reply. The closing date for entries is 5'th March so that we can adjust target requirements with the NRA. Hope to see you at Easter!

    Full Length Resizing vs Neck Resizing

    I concur 100% with Vince FL versus NS The benefits and consistency derived from FL resizing far outweigh the potential advantages of NS.....IN MY DISCIPLINE Unless you have a Tight neck the NS only wont have a meaningful opportunity to effect the cartridge / chamber relationship

    Full Length Resizing vs Neck Resizing

    The Thesis / paper on Annealling was a project I did with the people listed below that resulted in the papers RYAN STEVENSON (MENG MECHANICAL ENGINEERING WITH FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT) PROJECT SUPERVISOR: Dr ALEXANDER GALLOWAY : DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING Dr. Steven CANTOR : TWI : Metallurgist Involved 500 Lapua cases shot in stages and destroyed and scientifically analysed See bold bits below Abstract Reloading of brass 0.308 Winchester cartridges is common in high end target shooting. The work aimed to investigate the effects that successive firing and reloading, procedures have on Lapua manufactured 0.308 cartridge cases. During firing cartridges are exposed to extremely high temperatures and pressures and during reloading, a number of cold work processes are performed on the cartridges. The project was based on the reloading procedure used by Tim Stewart, a member of the British F class rifle team, who proposed and supported the work. The sample sets were designed to study the effects of reloading techniques such as neck turning and cartridge neck annealing. The production of the sample sets required 396 cartridges and 1260 rounds to be fired. Optical microscopy was used to examine cartridge defects and material microstructure. Material hardness was measured using a Vickers Microhardness tester. Residual stress was measured using X-ray diffraction and a scanning electron microscope was used to perform energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry to investigate the chemical analysis of the samples. The neck turning procedure was found to cause cracks to form at the base of the neck. It was suggested that this could be avoided by not neck turning so far down the neck of the cartridge. The research quantified the hardening of the cartridges over 5 firings and 6 reloading preparation procedures. The firing process was found to have a more significant work hardening effect than that of the reloading procedure. The neck turning procedure did not seem to significantly increase the work hardening of the material at the neck of the cartridges. The cartridge neck annealing process was shown to produce variable results. Possible methods of combating the inconsistent annealing results were suggested.
