    Savage, IMHO something like 4-16 would be a more sensible option for these types of shoots. Not all the shots are prone from stable position, you don't want to go too high for lowest magnification. Think I had a 4-12 on for last year's event.

    @ebf, stop spoiling my fun! I had visions of @Savage1 trying to hit a 2" dot standing at 15m three times in a minute or so, with his scope on 8x...

    And no I do not consider myself vindictive... much

    Gillie, if someone checked your passport, I'm pretty sure they would see "sadist" as your middle name.

    Just a few of the "fun" items I have encountered on your shoots:

    The plywood "slit"
    The #%^*+= cargo net (again, and again, coz you know how much we love that thing...)
    The "lets see how far down the hill a lefty shooter can roll" stage
    The "only thing holding me up is my toes" downhill shot
    The dancing diamond on a single strap stage...

    Pretty sure there have been others that I've tried to forget

    Yeah, I don't think you were at the Tarata event that had the "contortionist sheep ledge" or the Rotorua event we had the "stuck in a rock" stage...

    It's for my FTR rifle, I had a 6-24x Sightron on it which I probably shouldn't have sold. It's not a hunting rifle.

    8-32x would be higher than I want, I did a season of FTR with a 14x and found it to be lacking. However if a nice NF NXS in that kind of power range came up then I'd be interested.

    If I can't find a scope then I'll just use my hunting rifle, 2-7x.

    The bushnell elites in LRHS in up to 3- 12x or 6-18x might fill the bill, but about 2g's. Unconditional warranty and good reticles and mls adjustments. I have a couple. FFp.

    Leupold Mark AR 6-18x40 AO T1 Matte Mil Dot 67405

    I have been pleasantly surprised with the clarity and quality of the 3-9 version of this. The dial have both 223 and mls scribed on each turret. Price is about $1250 at gun City.

    Where does the Norma Magnum sit compared to a 300Win Mag Woody? I ask as the competition is limited to nothing bigger than a 300WinMag.


    Just an update on entries. I currently have over 30 entries for the Saturday centre fire match and therefore any further registrations will go on a wait list. As people already registered pull out their spots will be offered to those on the wait list.

    Members on here who have registered for the Saturday: @scoped, @lost, @Breyt +2, @The Bloke +3, @kimjon, @Flincher, @Savage1, @Nibblet, @Bagheera, @Woody, @Maca49, @Nakiboy
    Members on here I have as keen or interested for the Saturday: @25/08IMP, @Philipo, @PERRISCICABA, @shift14, @kirabilli


    I have about 20 entries for the Sunday 22LR event and so entries for the Sunday are still available.

    I really don't know which rifle I will use Gillie. but to answer your question comparing .308 Norma mag to 300 Win mag;-- the 308 Norma mag is almost but not quite as powerful as the Win mag. My loads are sending a 180 grain SGK at MV 2900fps. Could load it higher but my load shoots under 3/4moa at 300m so I am well content with that mv. I will most likely just shoot the 20 ? target Hunter class and will probably use 308Win or 30-06 as on reflection, 60 targets for the other cf shoot may be a bit more than I can justify at present.

    Hey @Gillie, i am "still" keen but i will need to "confirm" a bit closer to the dates, maybe in the first few days of november, life has been "difficult" with work.
    Please keep me in mind and if someone with a "SURE" interest is available put it on and i will go to the "waiting" list.

    Thank you a lot for the mention and invitation.

    All the best.

    Mac

    No worries Mac, I am looking at redesigning the course and target layout at the moment to try and accommodate more people.

    I started with 5 stages, each shot twice (shot slightly differently but with generally the same targets). Now I am looking at 10 stages each shot once using targets specific to that stage. With 4 person squads and 10 stages I could reasonably comfortably increase the entry limit to 40 or so. With 4 person squads and 10 stages - lets say 20 minutes per squad per stage (which never seems to work!) - that means about 3.5 hours to run. In reality once you add the safety briefing and get people underway on the course that means we will likely finish shooting for the BBQ about 3pm. With more people that will only get longer... makes for a long day for particularly for competitors that are planning on travelling home the same day.

    Sweetas though, I will be in touch as soon as spots open up.
