  1. Past hour
  2. I think the chaps in the States advocated a larger grade HbN (larger platelets - 0.5micron size) because it's easier to swab the bore with it - essentially you get a better coating. The finer 5-6 micron being fine enough to embed itself into the pores of the copper jacket. But if they've the one grade, worth a shot...see how it goes.
  3. I have had two Howas. One in 308 and one in 6.5 CM. I think they’re great rifles and can’t fault them. You need a decent stock though, the Hogue ones the package deals come with are rubbish in my opinion. They would be top of my list for good value and accurate rifles, not bottom, but then each to their own. My 6.5 CM Howa can give my mates Tikka T3 tactical a run for its money to 600 yards, not in the same league but definitely nothing to be embarrassed by. Never shot a Mossberg but not been impressed with what I’ve seen in shops although, I understand with a bit of fiddling they can be good rifles.
  4. It doesn't say amount of powder on invoice but I remember being told it was the minimum amount they sell so prob 100grms?? Funny how things change, my invoice.... Hbn powder £45 BN Aerosol spray can. £25 Postage £5 £75 + vat. £90 total
  5. Just spoke to Precision Ceramics.......very helpful guy.......said 5 - 6 micron suitable for barrel and bullets. In stock at £35/100gms, which is cheaper than I'd imagined, but the downside is £25 postage, however much you order.. Re-Pete
  6. Oh yes, it's definitely not for snorting 😂

    Kinetic hammer

    Just posted it now so it should be on its way. I just wish it were a Bipod I were sending to make it extra special for Bradders!
  11. I have a mint Discovery HD 4-24x50, FFP illuminated reticle, MIL/MIL, 34mm tube with low Recknagel rings that I would like to trade for a SFP scope. I need to have 4x power, MIL adjustment and adjustable parallax; the rest of the zoom range and other specs is not that important.
  12. Might be a good idea to avoid inhalation when using hex BN powder, despite it's alleged use in cosmetics............... https://www.cir-safety.org/sites/default/files/Boron Nitride_faa-final.pdf Pete
  13. We have a .223 MVP Varmint for Debs to shoot and it's fine, never going to be a match rifle but for plinking it's great, shoots 69gn SMKs to MOA and I'm working to improve that. They take AR mags and trigger is nice and crisp. There are a couple on Guntrader for around £500. Alan
  14. Given the choice you mentioned I`d go Remington then Mossberg with Howa being my last choice.
  15. I am looking for a cheap .223 to mainly play with at places like Sennybridge G range, where the .308 and .300 win mag rifles are too easy, yet the .22 and .357Marlin struggle with range. I really like laminated stocks and/or the tactical look. The Massberg MVP seem to be pretty cheap, being offered for around £500 notes second hand with a varmint barrel. I defo don't want a sporting rifle. Howa 1500 with laminated stock look nice as well and seem to be plentiful and the same sort of money. There are lots of Rugers and Remingtons available, but I understand, particularly Rugers, are not especially well made and need a fair bit of work to make them accurate. Any thoughts?

    Drone pro

    I've got two Drones the mark one with the 10x doubler and the mark two both are very good and to my mind where the market leaders. However as we all know Drones appear to be no more. I bought a Digcepter A couple of weeks ago from Clive Ward at Night vision store I have fitted it to my Dolphin 223 for ease of set up and testing . I can say that without a shadow of doubt that it is superior to the drone in build quality and battery life Mine comes with the optional range finder and having used it in daylight and extensively at night I found performance to actually exceed the drone. I shoot with some good friends some of whom have other various nightvision scopes the drone always was easier to set up and out performed the various combinations. In my view the Digcepter now set standards!

    Recomendations for reloading manual

    I use Lapua bullets, Lapua brass and Vhit' powder and I've found the Vhit' data book (free on their website) to be an excellent starting point. For pistol calibers and cast-lead bullets Lyman is great. I find the Lee manual to be useful but too oriented to their products. It's worth noting that many US powders are now banned under REACH so there's little point in manuals that major on those. The various powder manufacturers also provide good data online
