    Cheap alternatives

    Les, I'm guessing that you then use the Bold 3 in 1 pods to wash the patches so you can reuse them...... How many "firings" do you get from each patch?
  5. UKBRA are holding a 100 yard Benchrest weekend on the 30th and 31st March.... - Venue is Diggle Ranges Saturday will be a taster day, we will have some Benchrest Rifles for people to have a go with, but feel free to bring your own also. Sunday will be a competition, with classes for Benchrest Rifles and also Unlimited, where anything goes as such. - 50 rounds of ammo will give you enough for the comp and sighters Would anyone be interested in either day?
  6. Bradders, that is possibly because people "incorrectly" portray shooting disciplines of which they know very little about as being X, Y & Z, quite often these portrayals are less than favourable. That in itself makes it very hard to attract new blood to any discipline, before you even go to the expense of organising matches, training sessions, taster days etc ect.... We are all shooters after all and maybe, just maybe we should be trying to help the sport of shooting "Wholesale", rather than just trying to score cheap points against sections of our own community........ Yes, I'm a benchrest shooter, I make no bones about that, but the amount of complete and utter twoddle I hear talked about the discipline is just ridiculous and yes it sure is harder to convince someone to give it a go, when they have had their head filled full of rubbish in advance of ever trying it. So I speak from some experience.
  7. I'll take this please @ £1750, just left you a voicemail on your mobile

    Amazing group!

    The gun isnt "strapped" to the bench, it sits on a rest, but it still recoils, can be nudged etc and be pulled due to poor gun handling. The shooter has to read the wind and decide when to shoot, how fast etc, so there are a number of factors that make a group good or bad. It certainly isnt as easy as just bang bang bang, the wind will probably NOT stay constant in terms of direction or speed throughout the string and possibly at longer ranges 600 and 1000 yards, it wont even be constant in terms of direction down the whole distance of the range. So you have to look at many flags/indicators to make sure you get the true picture and replicate it for the required number of shots/groups....... Ohh and have a rifle that tracks in the bags and has an appropriate load developed. Hope this helps

    Amazing group!

    UKBRA will be at the Northern Shooting Show, with some of our kit for anyone that wants to come and have a look at it in the flesh

    Amazing group!

    Ok then Bradders, if its all so "easy, simple, boring etc" then June 17th at Diggle 1000 yard benchrest, why dont you come and show us all how to do it...... I'm sure someone will lend you a gun, rest etc and even load you the ammo if you want....... I dont criticise other disiplines, especially when I've never even tried them, so here is a chance for you to give it a go..... Hell, I'll even pay the comp entry fee for you.
