    Pulsar xq38f

    That sounds pretty low to me and would snap them up at that price. I would generally expect to pay at least 2/3rds of RRP, but as demand is currently exceeding supply the second hand value might be even higher.

    Don't get me wrong, having thermal is a total game changer. But for me the image on the XQ38F Helion wasn't good enough. It wasn't a patch on my buddy's two year old XQ50 Quantum, which I found better in every aspect except field of view. Only when I switched to the Accolade binoculars was I satisfied, but they do cost considerably more.

    Pulsar xq38f

    I had the XQ38F Helion and was underwhelmed so switched to the XQ38 Accolade binoculars which I find much better to use. My eyes take a couple of seconds to acclimatise to the darkness after looking through them, but it takes longer than that to put them down and pick up a rifle so I find it makes no difference. I have been bitten by the thermal bug, and thinking about upgrading to the top end binoculars.
  4. I bought one a year ago, along with a weather vane, only to find out my phone doesn’t have an internal magnetic compass. It has sat in a drawer ever since.
  5. 420 left of a box of 500. Selling as they don't suit my rifle. Was £160, now £140 posted.

    Bradders and Lapua, that's great info and exactly what I was after. Thanks very much.

    Reprofile a barrel?

    It's on the rifle. I'm based near Banbury (M40 J11) and am happy to travel, say 100 miles, to deliver.

    Reprofile a barrel?

    Well I'm certainly happy to risk it, and state publically here that of accuracy does degrade then that's just my tough luck. Now, who will do it? And how much will it cost?

    Thanks for the info. If anyone is happy to reprofile my barrel please do get in touch.

    That is most promising! Thanks for the info.

    Reprofile a barrel?

    I'm simply checking out options between buying a new barrel and reprofiling the one I already have. I would be looking for a smith to do all the work. Do you have a rough estimation on price?

    Reprofile a barrel?

    I have a Sassen light benchrest profile barrel that I would like reprofiled to Tikka Varmint profile. Can anyone recommend someone to do the job, and also a rough idea of cost? I understand that there may be some risk to the accuracy so I'm keen to hear anyone's experience of that after reprofiling.

    6mm / 0.243" barrel blank

    Looking for a 6mm barrel blank, stainless preferred. A 1:10" or 1:12" twist light varmint profile 1.150" shank (Tikka) would be ideal, but please do PM with WHY.
