  • Welcome to our 2015-B Reloading and Shooting Catalog! In our last catalog, we broke with tradition and used this space to put the spotlight on Team Sinclair, the champion F-T/R team weve sponsored for many years. This time we have bios of each team member, so you can get to know a little about these remarkable folks - see page 176. Here, we'd like to share more tips for F-Class success from the guys who know. We interviewed these gentlemen and received a wealth of knowledge. Here some highlights; look for more spread throughout this catalog and in future catalogs. Load development - After studying reloading manuals first, I start low and work my way up through the range of powder charges until I hit the most accurate load. I only use Lapua Match Brass, Hogdon Powder and Match Primers. I usually shoot 5-shot groups at 500 yards in calm conditions to test for accuracy. I want to be sure everything is consistently shooting well before I travel to a big match. I leave my barrel fouled and do not clean it before a big match. I usually have no problem shooting 200 rounds before I clean my barrel. -Paul Phillips Practice routine - Accurately reading wind conditions is always a big challenge for me - keeping the shot centered after a significant wind pickup or change in direction. I try several different new loads or re-test old ones to see if they're still consistently good. I like to practice wind reading at local matches rather than shooting alone. Small matches are great for testing and because there's less pressure, but they're still good preparation for big events like the U.S. Nationals. - Brad Sauve Favorite reloading tool - The Sinclair Premium Neck Turning

    Tool (page 17). I use Sinclair expander mandrels Sinclair for siz-ing the brass in preparation for turning. Correct and repeatable neck tension begins with turning necks to a uniform thickness. Sinclair also has mandrels to size the necks after neck turning that accurately size the necks for a specific neck tension. - Dan Pohlabel How often do you practice? - At least once a week. If I'm close to finding a load, I may try to go out more until I exhaust that load as an option, maybe up to 3 times in a week. Fortunately, winters are mild in New Mexico, where I live, and it allows me to shoot year round. I shoot more when it's colder. Summer sun here cre-ates mirage that makes it too hard to see the target! - Derek Rodgers Nugget of advice for the beginner - You are the biggest variable in your performance. Don't reinvent the wheel. It really isnt hard to find a load that is good enough to win. You can tweak it to reduce your groups by ", sure, but the shooter who spends that same time developing wind reading skills and perfecting position is going to beat you every time. Your rifle, your scope, and your ammo have to be consistent and reliable. But most importantly, you have to be consistent. - Ray Gross How to get started in F-T/R - Find a someone currently shoot-ing F-T/R and ask him/her to be your mentor. That person can help you know what to expect before you shoot and set realistic expectations. Show up at your first match with equipment that will allow you to make hits. If a shooter shows up with a 24" barrel fac-tory rifle and a 1" scope for a 1,000-yard match, they will not make hits, get discouraged, and probably will not return. We don't want that - F-Class competition is too much fun! - Jeff Rorer

    Tips from champions

    What is F-class? F-class is a form of long-range rifle competition devised by Canadian shooter George Farquharson. In Open F-Class, the competitor may shoot any caliber and use any type of rest. F-Class Target Rifle (F-T/R) is limited to .223 and .308, and the shooter must use a bipod for a rest.

    Flash Hole Deburring

    About Flash Hole DeburringFlash hole deburring is one of the most important case preparation steps a handloader performs. When most cases are manufactured, a burr is left inside the flash hole, sometimes incredibly large burrs. These burrs can cause erratic powder ignition and create velocity
