    NI Big Bore : any interest ?

    Guys, looking at putting together a NI version of the Big Bore Shoot.

    Rough guidelines to give you an idea:

    Probably 20 rounds max, bring a box of ammo and you can do the course of fire

    Would prefer .375 and up, not sure how many takers that would have ?

    Mostly off-hand and sitting/kneeling type shooting. Majority of shots under 75m, max 150m ?

    Please tag guys who you know are into big boomers, so we can gauge interest and get some feedback.

    Ta, ebf

    Great idea.

    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.

    Haha, bloody medium caliber crowd

    Yeah ok, I guess 9.3 is beefy enough.

    7 x 57 !!! would you like us to serve lattes on the day ?

    So after speaking to stug, it looks like we should make it closer distances.

    Max 100, most shots under 50.

    1 stage with shooting sticks
    max 4 shots per string

    A thick swinging plate would be a good idea

    Well if you let the 9.3 in then you would have to let me turn up with my little 358 lever..
    There's a few of us around with 358win (3000 ftlb), 358whelen (3600 ftld), 358 norma (>4500 ftlb)
