    This varies somewhat because of distances available, what country you're in, and then the local 'flavor'.

    Essentially, yes. The gun still needs to be fairly accurate, but after a certain point, having a gun that shoots 0.2 instead of 0.3 becomes a moot point. Taking that 0.3 gun and going out and...

    Depends how much it blows where you shoot at. In theory, the 52 FB should still be able to chew up the X-ring @ 300yds. In practice... if you miss a wind call by even a little, its not gonna be...

    Probably better off to just go to another forum that has actual active discussion on F-class related subjects... like accurateshooter.com.... if you want reasonably up-to-date scores and reports.

    The X-ring on the sling target becomes the 10 ring on the F-class target, and the new X-ring is 1/2 the diameter (only 1/4 the area!).

    Shooting sling is definitely more physically demanding -...

    Since the CenterShot bipod is no longer available, I'd say take a look at the Duplin bipod from Sinclair Int'l. Same basic design, with some improvements. If money wasn't an issue, I'd say get the...

    Typically for F-class most of the top shooters that I know of are using Berger bullets. Currently the 185 gn Juggernaut and the 200 gn Hybrid are what you see in the top 10 at...

    Tater,

    The new targets didn't show up until the '06 Nationals at the earliest, or the beginning of '07. The 10 ring on the new ones is the size of the X ring on the old ones, or about 1/4 the...
