I would just order a #3 die from Harrell’s. Most chambers will work with that die. The type S small base Redding will also work with most chambers.   Give one of those a try.

Visiting Competitors and Delegates,

The Organizing Committee wants to send a reminder that competitor documents can be found here if you haven’t seen them already. We will add to the downloadable documents as the event approaches.
Note we specifically had booked the WBC in close proximity to the Calgary Stampede. You may wish to come a few days early to take in what is billed as the Greatest Outdoor Show on earth. It is a very large event comprising a Rodeo, Chuckwagon racing, evening grandstand live entertainment show, and an enormous Midway and Exhibition. Details are here and tickets are on sale for 2019.

In regard to the non-airline friendly components required to compete we have a dedicated Vendor Plenty O Patches handling the supply of powder, primers, sand, cleaning supplies, hand tools etc. They will also have a selection of BR specific barrels, triggers, rests etc if you are so inclined. An order form will be developed in the coming months.

Official Invitation letters are available for the asking. Once you have selected your teams send me the names and we can send an official invitation.

Lastly a reminder to let me know the preliminary numbers of competitors your country will be sending, if you have not already.

Looking forward to seeing you and your team in July, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

With Kind Regards,
Rick Pollock

The government wants to hear a diversity of views on how to reduce violent crime in Canada and whether a BAN ON HANDGUNS AND ASSAULT WEAPONS would be the best way to address the problem. Public consultation is open until November 10.
Police forces are implying that illegal 'illicit' firearms are coming from legal owners through theft or sales, hence the need to ban legal ownership of firearms in Canada.

BRSC Shooters are re-writing the record book in 2018. Numerous records have been broken and even more are at the record committee. Let me be the first to congratulate the shooters below for their new records! Certificates will be issued, and in the case of records broken by multiple shooters on the same day, only the lowest record will be entered in the record book. Thanks to our record committee for their tireless work: Paul Ross, Joe Mendham, Dan Opel!

Vic Swindlehurst passed away a few years ago. He made somewhere around 100+ actions. They are a solid action to build BR rifles on, although you don't see as many around anymore. There was a steel version, and an aluminum and steel version same idea as a Panda. Action alone will be +/- $1000 CDN.

Couple more photos.

George Carter, Bill MItchell and Hugh Williamson with their winnings.

Then a photo of a very foggy range that caused a significant delay and we had the finish the afternoon aggregate the following morning.

Back home! A long drive but well worth it. Canadians had a tremendous showing. Hugh Williamson won the HV Grand and won 2 Hall of Fame points for those efforts and was second in the 3-Gun. Bill Mitchel had a great shoot winning the HV 200 and claiming a Hall of Fame point as well.

Full results here:

Many personal bests were set, and two possible BRSC International records will be sent to the record committee.

Sorry I didn't get a lot of pictures. Below is Dean Weger at the bench, and then Wayne Campbell and Hugh Williamson who finished 1,2 in the 3-Gun.

Now for some sleep....



Here are the results post the NBRSA Nationals in Holton, Michigan. 20 Canadians were at this match working very hard to accumulate enough points to qualify for the Canadian World Team in 2019. It was a hard fought contest and I am very proud of the efforts of all our shooters. Canadians will have 3 very formidable teams in Calgary.  I expect this will be the final standings, and letters of invitation to join the World Team will be sent out to the top 12 shooters.


Equipment list attached

Attached is the latest results post the match at Rosebud this past weekend.

Last shoot of 2018 at Rosebud is in the bag. Bit of a cool weekend with the morning temperature on the first day at -1C! It did eventually struggle all the way to 13C. None the less a good weekend. Thanks to all our helpers this season, and of course thanks tot he Rosebud Club for the terrific facilities. Look forward to seeing everyone next year.

Results attached.
