  1. Legal??

    I can't see anything wrong with reloading ammo for someone else, but an over-officious FEO or bobby might interpret s.2(1) of the Firearms Act 1920 more loosely than us: " 2-(l) A person shall not manufacture, sell, repair, test or prove, or expose for sale, or have in his possession for sale, repair, test or proof, firearms or ammunition by way of trade or business unless he is registered as a firearms dealer. " You'll doubtless say, "It's not my trade or business". It might, however, be enough to get suspicions raised or fingers pointed... maximus otter
  2. Which ballistic app

    1. For info it’s Strelok. It’s Russian slang for “gunslinger”. 2. DOPE is what’s known as a “backronym”. The word dope, when used by gun writers back in the Thirties and Forties, was simply US slang for “information” or “data”. Only recently have the US armed forces used it as an acronym for Data On Previous Engagements. maximus otter
  3. .22 Semi-auto ammo

    Literal translation: "If you spend loads of money on Gucci aftermarket parts for your .22 SLR, it can be as accurate as an out-of-the-box bolt action." Let two equally-talented riflemen select two .22LR rifles (of comparable quality) at random from the rack; one an SLR, one a bolt action. Let said riflemen experiment to find a brand of ammo that each rifle "likes". Let the two then fire groups at a respectable distance, e.g. 100 yards. I have a crisp £5 note that says that the bolt action will win every time. maximus otter

  8. 6.5 variants

    No. You are limited to that specific calibre as listed on your certificate (not "license"). However, any variation that does not increase the number of "weapons" on your FAC is free of charge. Select the calibre you really want, then bung in a free one-for-one variation. maximus otter

  10. British Shooting Show - No Dogs

    Years ago l described the typical Shooting Show attendee as: “Morbidly obese, wearing top to toe RealTree camo and a twatty leather cowboy hat, being towed by two psychotic Springers.” Why the dogs in a rammed exhibition hall? Why the camo? Who’s he trying to impress? maximus otter
