F class matches are a cross between bench rest competition and Palma style matches. You shoot prone like Palma, but generally shoot to 1000 yards and with the accuracy of a bench rest shooter. There is a 10 kilo weight limit to the rifle, but you can use a scope. Unlike Palma matches which are iron sights only.


I really got into reloading about 5 years ago. I've always liked messing around with things to see what happens. I also enjoy a bit of physics and chemistry, so playing with small explosives to find out how physics affects it is right up my alley.

I may do a bit of suppressed shooting but I just can't bring myself to draw up a subsonic load. It's too much fun to hear the crack as the bullet breaks the sound barrier. And that's all you hear. cool

LOL, silencers are banned here, and have been for quite a while, I agree the crack of the sound barrier is sweet. So is the whomp when the bullet hits a big fat pig. grin

Good morning all. I would love to get in on a F class match sometime. I am trying to get a spot on the line at Camp Perry.

I think everybody is getting in a last adventure or two before summer ends Ian. But you are right, it has been quiet.
