Re: costs on approved matches

Per Mr. Farmer they are working on the match reporting software to be ready for 2020. Apparently the web interaction is a little different for Silhouette than other competitions. He also indicated they were looking to set a one-time per year competitor fee of $15, similar to the book cost. I got the...

Re: Would anyone else like to see the weight limit change?

If I recall, originally the weight restriction for hunter was 7.5 lbs and later increased to allow for the heavier Anschutz actions. Instead of increasing the weight for hunter rifle I say we have three classes: Production: Any 22 LR as offered by a manufacturer, no mods allowed, 7.5 lb max weight, ...

Re: NRA casification cards

I still have three that were down classified from the get go. Made three attempts to get them corrected. I no longer care. I don't shoot national matches so what difference does it make. At local matches I just signup in my correct class.

Re: Card apply one match shot

When the match director sends in the scores for the match they need to include your NRA number if you are a NRA member OR supply your contact information so they can put you in the system, set your classification and some day send you a card.

Morr Edge vs D3 Precision Rings

Just posting for information sake. Morr Edge Silhouette: $85 shipped. Mine took two weeks to get with no confirmation on shipping. Each ring with screws weights 25.4 grams (0.9 oz). They came unfinished with minimal to no deburring so tool marks are visible and the use of a fine jewelers file was ne...

Re: NRA Score Reporting Form

Interestingly we had our first high power club match March 24. We shoot two 40's . I used the new form. I opened up the tournament site, put in the tournament ID number, hit the score here at the bottom and the new portal requires the tournament ID again and an Access Code. But Willis I ain't gots ...

It was my belief that our club's competitors, for the most part, were not going to take the time and trouble to make copies of their 2018 score book covers and all related pages and send them to the NRA.
No offence but I assume these are all adults?

Re: Leupold 6.5-20 EFR questions

Don't know what their current backlog is but the 6.5-20 scope I sent in 9 weeks ago is scheduled to be done late this week or early next so it would appear they are busy. Still, I would rather wait then pay the extra $100+ to Leupold.

Re: New NRA Competitions Portal

Seems to be working today. Still has two classifications wrong and one missing but oh well.

Anyone know what the "Your Activity" page is for? Maybe it is a placeholder as things get populated but currently it shows 2018 matches for another club.

Re: Squib

My .357 load across all animals is 13.5gr of 4227 with a gas checked 158gr lead semi-wadcutter. This is a medium load for a .357.

I would suggest trying a different primer with the same lot of powder.

Re: Squib

I would not shoot any of that ammo any more, and I would take the remaining stuff and run it across a scale to see how consistent the cartridges are. This is slightly reminiscent of what happened yesterday with a friend. We were shooting .38-40s. His was loaded with a fairly full case of 4227 and a...
