  1. Few years ago at open nationals saw ro call a miss while I was taping that was an obvious hit. Dident tape target and told shooter to challenge it .took some convincing but when he called to over she said" I was wondering if anyone would challenge that one"??????. Was a hit. Last years nationals had ro. go out of his way to call me over to look at a miss he called on a 2 stage on 1 pit stage when I was on other stage during scoring. Was far out. Some ros great some not so much.
  2. Gun must run 100%. All small adjustments to load or gun after that feel different for the first few shots then your still the same flawed shooter you were with the old gun setup or load. Practice practice practice.
  3. Open. Top end before a major or 5000 rds. Lower 2 weeks before nationals. 10000-15000 Rds. No problems for past 30 years.
  4. By comparing your hit factor to the highest hit factor on record.
  5. Make you shoot the gun at least 25 yards. 50 is better. Before you settle on plated bullets. Often start to shed plating and become wildly inaccurate at distance.
  6. A look at the case head of the round that was in chamber at the time would tell alot. If primer pocket is grossly oversize excess pressure. If normal looking except for missing front part of caseing barrel steel failure.
  7. Right handed ,racker on right. Some people make a big deal out of what side racker is on but it makes on difference once you are used to it. If sideways mounted more gun is already propped.
  8. Last time I ordered on line no response. Called and he got order right out to me. He said to call because he doesn't look at web orders often. He's kind of a crotchety old guy but is fine when you talk to him.
  9. Only times you can have to much ammo on belt is when you are trying to swim or are on fire.
  10. The casing you want to look at is the one that split the barrel. If overloaded case head will be ironed flat with primer pocket being grossly oversize. If barrel was flawed case head will be relatively undamaged as pressure was normal. On a squib there is always a bulge where bullet was lodged caused by air being compressed between stuck bullet and rapidly advancing bullet just fired. If barrel splits it will be at bulge not chamber as a squib dosent raise chamber pressure unless stuck bullet is touching fired bullet.
  11. Thanks Mike Cost not the issue .tried pasters from shooters connection last year on a recommendation and they were slightly better. Shot at a club last weekend and pasters they were useing were falling off after first shooter at 30 degrees. Very frustrating. Looking for the best brand of tape or paster for cold weather Barry
  12. Been match director 30 years Last few years noticed tape is near useless in cold weather. Something has changed with the tape I've always used. Any suggestions ?? We always shoot thru winter in temps down to zerro.
  13. Shooter in question engaged target while standing still but from my vantage point leaned just enough to shoot aprox 2 inches into wall. Was clearly intentional. I dont fault ro for not catching it as on a feild course he has alot to watch. I think rule should that it is scored a miss.
  14. Non mesh wall clearly bullet went thru wall. Rule says reshoot. Sadly cheaters will cheat. Gotta get that brand ambassador Jersey somehow.
