  1. The PSR version is what Steve is referring to.

    Best UK Varminting Calibre?

    22-250, 243 and other hot cartridges are great for vermin in that they are flat shooting but if you have lots of vermin to get through those cartridges are not suitable choices. They’ll be in for re-barreling too often. Unless you have no financial constraints and a spare rifle to switch to whilst it’s being re-barrelled this could be an issue. My .223 accounted for triple figure vermin and a bit of plinking over a 2 year period and it was one of 3 rifles so it’s a personal choice as to what’s most suitable. Comsider the quantity of shooting you will be doing and then; cost of reloads, barrel life, time away with a rifle builder for re-barrelling and frequency before making your choice.
  3. All yours. I’ll PM you payment details and total.

  5. I have for sale an unused BAT model M action. .308 size bolt face so will be ideal for many different cartridges: .22-250, 22BR, 6BR, .243, 6.5x47, .308 etc. It was bought for a project I didn’t end up running with. It is an absolutely stunning, super-slick action that anyone would be proud to own. £1295

    hornady eld match

    I cross-sectioned a 140 Amax and a 140 ELD M and 130 TMK respectively. You can see the ELD M has a narrower gap between the copper jacket at the tip insertion point. I imagined that this caused the jacket to sometimes fold in rather than outwards creating a through and through impact/exit scenario on small quarry. Note the HUGE tip insertion diameter in the TMK. They expand very violently.

    hornady eld match

    My findings are the 140 gr ELD M does not expand reliably on vermin yet the 147 ELD M does. It makes little sense but that is exactly what I have found. I also share this experience with a couple of my friends who have experuenced the same.

    Did you round to trying them? I’ve got some arriving tomorrow so will report my findings after load development and use on vermin.
  10. Try now - I’ve cleared some space. ?
  11. Sorry I forgot to add that it’s a .308 bolt face
