You didnt look in the right book!!!! You have to look in the Australian NRA rule book for Fullbore not the USA rule book under F class.
Hope to see you soon in November for our Mid Range match.
It would be nice if you guys could get that bumped up to the 90's.

Where did you get the idea that the 223 is limited to 80 grains or that the 308 is limited to 155 grains?
Or are you posting from Canada or Australia?
I'm from Oz (Australia) the name Thunder DownUnder should have given you a hint. I wish we had availability to other projectiles like you guys have!

At the Canadian Fullbore Champs last August, there was no bullet weight restriction for F(R) in .308 or .223. I believe this is consistent with the other Palma countries.
But Canada also has F(F) which literally means Farquharson Farquharson (note the correct Scottish spelling) in honour of the originator of F Class, a DCRA shooter in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. He wanted to keep shooting with his buddies when his eyes and arms could no longer tolerate TR. And the rest is history.
In Canadian F(F), there is no bullet weight restriction is .223 but there is a 156 restriction in .308.

There is no bullet weight restriction for 223 or 308 in the US Palma rules. There is a bullet weight restriction for 223 - 81 grains and for 308 - 156 grains in the US Fullbore rules.
Last weekend the High Powder Committee voted to change the US Fullbore rule on the 223 to 91 grains and left the 308 - 156 grain unchanged.
