Here is one way of drying out your Chamber Mop and Nylon Bore Brush after it has been cleaned from fouling that it has picked up during your Firearms Cleaning and Maintenance Regime.
Products For The Precision Shooter – A Shooters Paradise
I know the credit card can’t really take the hit right now but I have been eyeing up a few new tools on Sinclair International for my reloading bench and range bag.
As an early Christmas present this is what I have in my online shopping cart, ‘wow did I just mention the C word?’, I believe I did. Well Santa aint too far away and the early order will beat the last minute rush.
Irish National Silhouette Championships
It’s Monday morning and time to reflect on how our National Championships unfolded.
Gales, Fractures & No Breaks
The forecast was not looking good. We had been warned all week of winds ranging from between Gale Force 5 to 8 becoming widespread throughout the country as the Tail End of Hurricane Katia began to make land fall and cause trouble on the Emmerald Isle. Strangely enough we were experiencing summer temperatures topping 17 to 18 degrees celcius at the same time.
As per the 2011 NSAI shoot calendar, the Irish National Championship Smallbore Rifle Silhouette Competition will be held this coming weekend on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th of September 2011 at BRC Shooting Club.
There are two events scheduled -
- Smallbore Silhouette Rifle
- Smallbore Hunting Rifle.
Range Opening Time
BRC Shooting Club will be open from 9am on both Days of the Event.
Event Program & Format
The National Championships are a 2 day event and must be attended and shot on both days if you wish to compete for an award.
- Day 1 will consist of 40 Shots in Smallbore Silhouette Rifle and 40 Shots in Smallbore Hunting Rifle.
I grabbed some range time last weekend before our upcoming National Championships and decided to create a short video of myself shooting a bank of 5 chickens before I got into a more detailed and focused shooting session. Apologies in advance for the lighting conditions.
When I began reloading I used CCI large rifle primers, not because of any particular reason other than they were the primers I was introduced too. Now three years later I am still using CCI as I have found them to be very reliable with ignition in my 6.5×55.
Now as my latest batch of CCI have come to an end, I went to my local firearms dealer for a fresh batch but he had no CCI left in stock. With limited choice I decided to buy Federal Primers.
