    35mm lots of MOA mount

    I have a set of 35mm steel IOR two piece picatinny mounts with 20moa. Please do PM if interested.

    Doughnuts??

    From my own experience I'm inclined to believe that neck doughnuts are a feature caused by neck bushing dies. I have returned to collet neck dies and honed FLS dies and the doughnuts have gone.

    243 / 6mm Berger 80 grain Varmint

    Looking for this particular bullet, cash waiting or can swap for other 6mm bullets.
  5. Thinking about it further, I would be happy with two piece bases as long as I can use the receiver threads. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? UPDATE: Found them here on the Weihrauch website: https://www.weihrauch-sport.de/small-bore-repeaters/accessories-small-bore-repeaters?lang=en
  6. Thanks Bruce, but I'm really looking for an all in one rail that uses the receiver threads. I've had those adapters before and never really trusted that they stayed put.
  7. I’ve just ordered an HW66 rimfire and looking online for a pic rail to install. I have seen brands such as Apex (John Carr), Britannia and Reed Resolution (Opticswarehouse), where the rails look identical apart from the logos and the all largely cost the same. Are they all from the same manufacturer? I am looking for the best made and lowest fitting rail I can find that uses the action drilled and tapped receiver threads, and not one that simply slips over the dovetail rail and uses grub screws for a friction fit against the receiver top. Thanks in advance.

    6br specific mags

    I ordered direct from the Patriot Valley website, and had no issues getting it shipped to the UK. The only problem was the price, the Accurate AICS mag was IIRC about £90 and the Patriot kit another £60+ after shipping etc.

    17 HMR - has it a niche ?

    I’ve had a few HMRs, and really rated them for rabbiting but I gave up on them when ammo quality became an issue. Accuracy and consistency was variable and though I had never suffered a safety problem, Ihad witnessed barrel blockages and hang fires and decided it was no longer for me. I switched to 17 Hornet and have had a couple of CZs so far and delighted that I made the change. They are seemingly no louder than HMR, but the extra 1000+fps is certainly noticeable in the field. I have had no luck with Hornady factory ammo nor bullets, but home loaded Bergers make tiny little groups. Or if money saving, cheap Kranks Value bullets over N110 make ammo that is sub MOA and cheaper than HMR.

    6br specific mags

    I use a 308 family AICS Accurate Mag with Patriot Valley 6BR insert in my Tikka T3 and it has been utterly reliable so far with all bullets tried (60 to 115 grain) at any bolt cranking speed.

    Tract Scopes

    I don't know how they do it, but I had no problems ordering. Their shipping prices are quite eye watering though.

    Tract Scopes

    My Tract 3-12x42 arrived eventually yesterday after a lot of fretting about where it gone. It was being held in UK customs and then there was the usual extortionate duty and fee to have it released. It seems an amazing scope for the money, as the build quality is excellent and the glass very clear indeed. Tract must be pretty confident of the quality as there is a lifetime no questions warranty too. That said, I already have more scopes than rifles, so I will get around to selling it soon. I should plan my purchases more carefully!

    115 gn DTAC

    Sorry, they sold a couple of days ago.

    Tract Scopes

    I too bought a Delta Stryker, but was underwhelmed with it. It was OK, but nothing special for £1400, just another full featured Japanese scope. Obviously I wasn't expecting it to rival my Swarovski Z6, but the optics weren't actually equal to my old Zeiss Conquests which were quite a bit cheaper. I guess prices have increased quite a bit in the last few years. I'm hoping the Schott glass in the Tract will give that 'Euro' clarity, but at a greatly reduced price.

    Tract Scopes

    No Experience yet, but I have just ordered a Tekoa which on paper at least looks about half the price of other equivalent brands.
