  1. First let me say I'm NOT thinking of going shooting anywhere at the moment! However I saw a post somewhere yesterday saying that FEO's were telling people if they were caught out shooting for no good reason they will lose the Firearms/Shotgun cert. Shooting on your own land and pest controllers were exempt? Anybody else hear this? Mark

    6.5 Creedmoor - real world velocities

    As far as I know you don't have to shoot both days. You pay for both as the the main day the SRP (Short Range Precision) runs on the best weather day, the Saturday preferably. The LRP (Long Range Precision) day last year was given results and trophies on the day but did not count towards the years end result. So you can build your rifle for the main day and have a play on the other. This may change next year?

    6.5 Creedmoor - real world velocities

    As stated many times, the reason most US PRS/NRL league shooters went back to 6mm from 6.5mm, was when Flashers started been used on long range targets. They got fed up with no impact calls when the little 6mm's showed no movement or sound on the plates. I know a couple of US guys shooting PRS and they said the advantage of the lower recoil of the 6mm's was nice but not really that much of a factor, when they are running rifles weighing between 20-28 lbs! This year a lot of guys using 6.5 in PRL were using break's so that helped with recoil so spotting shots or misses was easier at distance. I ran a warm load on a 6x47, but good spotters had trouble seeing shots at distance let alone me balanced of a obstacle! Still deciding what to run next year? Mark

    PRL 2019 - What Calibre, Action/Chassis and Optic

    I shot a 6x47 Lapua with 105 hybrids doing 2940fps for 3 of the PRL's. I was okay until it got over 750m then sometimes splashes and hits on steel were hard to see. I'm going to try a heavier Bullet, if that does not help I'll go 6.5 for next year. If we used Flashers like in the states it would not be a problem. The yanks found that out, that's why a lot of the top shooters moved over to 6 Dasher and 6 Creedmoor when the flashers started being used at distance. Virtually everybody used a bag or two of some sort, it just made sense.

    Viking Rifle Series

    Nice stage, those flashers really work well. Makes a big difference when using smaller calibres.
