    Leupold QR ring heights

    l can’ t be of immediate help, but there are a couple of calculators out there that might assist: http://www.mil-rad.com/scope_ring_calculator https://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/scope-ring-height-clearance-calculator/ https://xlrindustries.com/pages/scope-ring-height-calculator https://www.midwayusa.com/how-to-guides/ring-height maximus otter
  4. I use Southwick quad sticks: https://youtu.be/Cobad2VfWJs My attitude is: if you’re going to the trouble of carrying all that palaver, why limit yourself to supporting just the front of the rifle? Quad sticks needn’t weigh any more than a trigger stick, yet you get the extra stability of the buttstock being cradled. I don’t go shooting without them. maximus otter

    Ammo from 1960s compared to today.

    I recall standing over some gooey remains on the tarmac, and a colleague saying to me, "Another **** who thought that traction control, ABS and four-wheel drive enabled him to contravene the laws of physics". maximus otter

    Ammo from 1960s compared to today.

    1. lt’s difficult to understand your question. l think you’re asking whether a pass at DSC.1 is a legal requirement in order to shoot deer. The answer is “No”. 2. How were .22 centrefires “commoners’ calibres” in 1963, when the Deer Act became law? .303 from a sporterised SMLE I can see as a poor man’s tool, but not a .22 CF in a recently-introduced (1950s) calibre. maximus otter

    License change for range practice and comps

    From memory any variation which does not increase the number of “weapons” on your FAC, is free. maximus otter

    New to varminting

    “Three shooters, four opinions.” For just rabbit and hare-sized animals, your best bet would be either .22LR or .17 HMR. Advantages/disadvantages: .22LR: Adv: Cheap, quiet (especially using subsonic ammo and a sound moderator). Disadv: Shorter accurate range (very dependent on your skill, rifle, ammo & conditions, but about 75 yards is sensible), prone to ricocheting, bullets cause less tissue damage at any given range. .17HMR: Adv: Longer range (see above qualifiers, but - if you and your kit are up to it - maybe 150 yards or more), less prone to ricochet as bullets are lighter & faster. Not too light for chest shots on foxes. Disadv: Expensive (2 or 3 times the price of .22), noisy. Rifles? You won’t go far wrong with one of the CZ range in either calibre.

    What waterproof jacket / smock

    The Ridgeline smock is bombproof and of excellent quality. Its downsides are that - although breathable - it’s not highly breathable. Also, it has no pit zips. For stationary shooting or gentle exercise, excellent; for Highlands stalking you’d “boil in the bag”. maximus otter

    If I got p***ed off about every mistake in spelling and grammar on UKV, I wouldn't have much time left to accomplish anything... maximus otter

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    “...our advice to members remains the same. Refuse to pay any fee demanded by the GP for responding to the initial patient record request. Should the doctor refuse to participate without money, point out to the GP that the police letter states that if no response is received within 21 days it will be assumed that there are no medical issues.” https://basc.org.uk/blog/press-releases/latest-news/basc-urges-members-not-to-pay-gp-fees/ l ignored my GP’s blackmail request. Result? FAC renewed with two new slots. **** him. maximus otter

    223 rifle choice - what ????

    l have a Sako 75 Varmint in .223, still on its original 1:12 barrel but shortened to about 20”. Wood stock, obviously. With my 50 grain V-Max loads it shoots 0.25 MOA off the bench. I’m very happy with it. maximus otter
