Air Splitter & Barrel Tuners for Air Rie
Benchrest by Carl Boswell.
Benchrest rimre
shooters will know a thing or two aboutmuzzle devices (barrel tuners) and tuningthe barrel. This process has gone from theringing of the barrel, using such processesas the Hopewell method, to somethinga lot more 21st century using electronicmonitoring equipment to achieve tuning.
The Long View by Les Holgate.
Well here wego ago again - time to blow the winter cobwebs
o your F Class rie and equipment and try to put
into action your New Year’s resolution of “Mustdo better at League shoots.” (or was that justmine!)...
Choosing Sights for competition shooting. By GwynRoberts.
Moving on from making your stocks and grips
t you properly, the next thing to consider is which type
of sight (or sights) are going to be the most suitable for
the type of Gallery Rie competitions that you intend to
compete in.
This Smallbore Business – by Don Brook.
Accessories -overkill or what? Gees, I have long seen the attempts from
manufacturers to ensure that everything on a free rie isso adjustable that it ts all. Even from my good mate in
the UK, Barry Dagger - who is four foot zip - to the lengthof Harald Stenvaag from Norway, who is so tall that whenhe lays down for his prone, he is half way there! Now that,my readers, is indeed a challenge...
I compared MVs andvelocity spreads obtained from
Lapua’s new ‘Palma’ small rieprimer (SRP) / small ash-hole
cases against identical loadcombinations in normal largeprimer (LRP) examples last month,with particular reference to the
eects produced by low (< °C)
ambient temperatures. It appearsthat SRP cases are not well suitedto chilly conditions with some
powders - Viht N and N
both struggling for instance.
Practical Shotgun: This month, weak-hand reloading from a caddy - By MikeSiva-Jothy.

The Grunig & Elmiger ‘Return’ Butt-plate byConor McFlynn.
If you read our February edition,you may recall the account of Irishman ConorFlynn’s spectacular win in the World Field TargetChampionships in Italy. Now Conor describes one
piece of equipment that contributed to his success.
Laurie isin the process of a ‘silk purse from a sow’s ear’

Well, no sooner had we got back from the Shot Show that it was ‘all systems go’ forNewark. It was great to meet so many of you and, for me it was a great Show. Our
little stand was representing not only the magazine but also Diggle Ranges, rimre andcentrere benchrest, the 50 Cal. Association and the Long Barrel Pistol & Gallery Rie
crew.When I get to meet shooters face to face for a chat, I’m always amazed how manyof you don’t actually compete in any sort of shooting discipline and have little
understanding of F Class, benchrest or what have you. My own Club at Diggle is totally
competition orientated and we cater for just about everything.
I love to see a new shooter come along – perhaps not even having an FAC - then gothrough probation, basic training, buy a rie, start reloading and enter their rstcompetition. Then maybe a year or two later they will be picking up their rst award ina Club competition or even winning one of our Championships.The great thing about our sport is that you do not need to be super-t or even that
active to be competitive – just keen and enthusiastic. We’ve taken shooters frombeginner to shooting for their country in two or three years – what an achievement foranyone!Yes, plinking and just messing about with guns is immensely enjoyable but you are
really missing something by not taking your sport to the next level. And please don’t
think that taking part in competition shooting is all serious – just the opposite – there
is plenty of fun and banter in the GBF Class Association even though we take our sport
seriously.If your own club is a little ‘inactive’ and you feel like getting goingin competitive shooting, then we are here to help. We try andcover most target shooting disciplines so, if you need help orinformation, please don’t hesitate to ask.
