  2. Atlas bi pod

    I have just purchased a Fortmeier from Breacher on here and it’s fantastic well built and very stable not a bit of flexing anywhere, good purchase I’m well pleased I waited I normally buy the first thing I see, went to the shooting with buying a bipod in mind after looking at quite a few including the Atlas I just couldn’t part with the money for it. When I see the Fortmeier I knew that was my bipod so shelled out some beer tokens and was not disappointed. Kevgun

  4. Atlas bi pod

    I guess it depends on what shooting you're doing. If mostly stalking, I'd favour the Harris. Harris is quick to deploy and personally I felt more robust and stable than the Atlas. Personally, I was disappointed by the amount of flex in the Atlas when legs extended - especially at the price point. if you're target shooting, especially at distance and so require the stability - do yourself a favour and spend the extra on a Fortmeier. The legs are wider and so more stable than either the Atlas or Harris. It has a beefier construction and has a better attachment point than the others. You also don't need to preload, rather you let the rifle push back with recoil and so you don't run into issues of over torquing or 'forcing' the shot IMO.

    They work completely different to a Harris. It’s not just smoke and mirrors. The Atlas needs to preloaded in order to obtain optimal consistency. This takes a lot of practice especially when on a hunting rifle. It isn’t often you are presented with a nicely mown position to go down prown and get yourself ready. The Harris is far quicker to deploy yet has the springs to twang. If you can get behind one before buying. There are an unlimited number of go faster bits on the internet. At the end of the day they both do the same thing provide an elevated stable shooting platform.
  6. .223 barrel cleaning

    You should always clean your barrel when switching from one brand of ammo to another.
  7. .223 barrel cleaning

    Anyways, bitching aside. I picked up the howa today, cleaned the barrel before putting a round through it. Wasn't actually necessary as it was clean as a whistle. With hornandy 40 grn vmax clover leaf groups easily achieved at 100 yds, however I decided to try some Norma 50,s again vmax heads, these did not group half as well so I went back to the hornandy, now it would only produce touching groups but nearer to an inch. Gave the barrel a good run through with the brush and solvent and plenty of patches, I will see if things are back to clover leaf tomorrow with the hornandy.
  8. Atlas bi pod

    It might sound poncey, but they just look better and work better. No springs sticking out, more easily adjustable and just pleasingly machined. If you can afford one, buy one, Regards, Jon

    They are better than the Harris but you could buy four Harris bipods for the same price .I have one and like it but it was £280
  10. Hi guys currently using Harris bi pods on both my rifles, thinking about changing to a atlas pod to use on both. My question is are they really worth the money and what will they do that a Harris pod want thanks in advance

    Indeed, Deker....many compromises to consider. It'll boil down to your needs. FYI I have fired 75g Hornady ELD's out of a CZ varmint laminate at 525yds without any problem whatsoever. I will say however that its sweetest bullet is the 69g smk (at least in mine) which excels at 300yds - I have not tried the 69g smk out any further Also the stock of the CZ trounces the Tikka T3X...I have a special order Super-Varmint T3X in 24" with the set-trigger (although be it in .308) ..and it goes without saying the adjustable stock of the Super-Varmint is a great benefit and is indeed a superbly accurate rifle but, 'in the hands' the feel of the CZ I find is way superior. And I'm saying this as a Tikka 'fan'. Incidentally, all the CZ's I've seen easily hold their own against the Tikka accuracy speaking - I have found no discernible difference between the two Good luck with your choice/dilemma

    Hi, the price of the CZ is very good and I did look at them at the shooting show but wasn't sure about the 1:9 twist

    You don't need anything faster than a 1:8 to shoot 77SMK's or TMK's
  26. new .223 time

    Thanks, I'll look at both options, I did read a thread about going the custom route with a T3 but in all honesty I'm a little lost as to where to start with donor actions etc and will probably end up buying the wrong things again :/ But I'll take a look again and see what I can find, I do like the idea of going that route as I was planning on doing similar with an xbolt due to the 1:12 twist being wrong (form rifle stock and custom barrel). I'll also check the Sabatti out. Regards Derek
  27. new .223 time

    I would go for custom 1:7 or 1:7:5 Bartlein barrel on a T3 donor and if you want put it in a new T3X Adj Varmint stock, all of which I just happen to have. You could have any barrel length and profile for very little more than a new Super Varmint and my accuracy guarantee is far better than Tikka
