    "robust debate" can be good indeed, however reading some posts it's hard to believe some people here actually possess any guns. surely a compliment on fine accuracy makes for a better discussion than arguing over the type of target. the choice of paper or varmint as quarry should not ideally drive a wedge between disciplines no more than choice of which hat to wear.

    I was not particularly commenting on the hares in the truck so 'those facts' aren't overly relevant to me (but I do think it an awful thing). Spout publicly? You mean express a view some are not happy hearing? Is this forum only a safe space for like-minded persons? I'm not sure one can deny that the release of tens of thousands of game birds to shoot is anything other than wholesale? It's a major money making operation for estates is it not? I'm not promoting a split - I'm denying there's ever been a collective view! If there is please point me at the evidence and I'll gladly review my belief.

    Define 'wholesale' please. And no one is asking you to ally yourself with anyone making as you phrase it, offensive and dumb comments. I note however you now say you are not promoting a split but earlier state you will not,support other types of shooting. I take it you are similar to Pete and myself in so much as you are not in receipt of the facts either? But wish to spout publically about wholesale slaughter anyway? Hmmm.

    fair point, but surely a robust debate is good? It confirms or refines our beliefs. Echo chambers are for snowflakes that need a 'safe space' to all agree in😉

    not wishing to show preference to either side here,,, but given the name of this forum it seems a strange dialog within at times.

    Sellier and bellot 6.5 creedmoor

    I have not seen the S&B on this side of the wet, but I can offer two big thumbs-up on the Norma. The Norma 130 is amazingly accurate from all of my Creedmoors.~Andrew

    Palma brass

    I switched to Palma a few years ago..............case life was around 25% better, and MV's higher. Typically 3050fps with 155grain bullets and RS52. In addition, I was able to use one type of SR primer in all the calibres that I shoot, and bulk-buy. (Murom KVB-223M) I haven't found any consistent pattern when comparing group size to ES or SD. I've had tiny groups with a huge ES, and vice versa. I sold my 308 earlier this year.....I find 6.5x47 and 6x47 better all round for my style of shooting (Plinky-plonking at 300, 600, and 1000yds) Pete

    Ranging on stickledown

    The question was asked to the NRA a day or 2 ago and the reply was we don't know 😁. I can recall other club mates ranging the target board from the firing points years ago and they were getting 999yds/1000yds which is the +/- tolerances on there rangefinder so they then knew there rangers were reading correctly.....

    Ranging on stickledown

    Would the obvious approach not be to ask the NRA? Rick Wells is i believe the range manager and if he doesn’t know would likely be able to find out.
  18. I imported 3 of these from the states, they worked out at £46 each after tax etc. This one is surplus, so for sale at £46. I will cover the postage

    could you get an estimate from Google Earth using their measuring tool? I've found it to be accurate to better than a foot

    Good question-that occurred to me some time ago specific to Stickledown, I will be interested to see what somebody comes up with as a true distance to 🎯 thanks Reecy

    MJR, I'm not. Let me just reiterate - I have nothing against hunting and vermin control if done sensibly and ethically. I'm fed up with an assumption by some, who enjoy the wholesale shooting of wildlife, that they can expect me and others of my point of view, to dumbly support their firearms rights and put out of my mind the fact I don't agree with what they do. I also don't think there's any practical relevance either, after all what does this "support" look like? Am I to ally myself to persons who make offensive and dumb comments - I don't think so. It's just a fact of life that the majority of the population are anti shooting for a variety of emotional and some rational reasons. Surly the best approach is to win hearts and minds not fling abuse around and accuse those proposing opposing legislation of being "like nazis". Take a leaf out of the 50Cal shooters group who put an excellent case together and won based on rational argument.

    Popsebengo, why are you actively promoting a split between different branches of shooting? As I have stated in other posts I am not in receipt of the facts relating to a specific image but it seems neither are you?

    Wilcox G24 NVG arm

    Hi all, It’s a long shot (no pun) but I’m looking for a genuine Wilcox G24 NVG mounting arm if anyone has one they’d part with. I have cash to buy and also a Norotos AKA2 arm to trade. Only want the 24 cause it’s more low profile. Thanks

    Pete, are you in receipt of the full facts? What acerage were the hares taken from and why? What was the density of the hare population prior to the 'industrial scale slaughter' you refer to. I do not know these facts but expect they were influential in the decision to remove the hares from the ground. If you do know them then please share. If you don't know these facts are you in a position to comment in such a manner?

    There's a big difference in my book between someone walking round with a gun taking a few rabbits and the odd muntjac or pheasant for the pot, and industrial scale slaughter by the lowlife who simply enjoy killing and are willing to pay in order to do so, "legally" or otherwise. Rabbits, unlike mountain hares, are in the same league as grey squirrels, not a native species. Introduced during the Roman occupation, afaik. As for the mountain hares: Protected in the UK under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981. Priority Species under the UK Post-2010 Biodiversity Framework. Pete
