    Mag Length Gap

    The TMK 155 gr has replaced the 155gr SMK (2155) I have used for some years. Ironically I had to single load on Tuesday when I realised that the 50 rounds I had made up didn't fit the magazine! I think the next step is to measure the internals of my 6 mags and do another shoot to make sure there is no lack of grouping by seating the bullet deeper.

    Mag Length Gap

    I've just switched over to Sierra TMK 155 gr (308) and realise my normal OAL for the old SMK is too long for the magazine. Rifle is an AI AE MkIII using AICS Mags. Your thoughts on a suitable gap between bullet tip and magazine would be gratefully received! 🙂

    NRA Armistice Match 10th November 2018

    I appreciate that there are very few of you on here with an interest in this. However...only 24 places left as of 12 September! ?
  5. This is not your usual fare on here I grant you! If you own a smellie or a Long Lee, the NRA with some help from LERA are putting on a match to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ending of the Great War. The match is based on the old classic smellie shoot that the Army Target Shooting Club staged between 1995~2003. The targetry consists of pre 1910 School of Musketry targets and is very much in, The Spirit of the Original. Lunch will consist of Range Stew, (for the old & bold!) with a further choice of curry for the civvies. ? In the afternoon there will be a fire power demonstration of a Vickers MMG and rapid fire from the competitors. This is a unique opportunity not only to remember the fallen, but also to celebrate the best battle rifle of the 20th century!
  6. We had a hedgehog killed by a badger on the lawn in exactly that way.

    Dodgy peepers.

    I was going to post something similar to this, my eyes go to pot unless I'm well hydrated.

    I don't understand how your scoring this, 5a's 8a's?? Can you expand on how, (I assume it's a DP14) this is being scored please?

    Schmidt & Bender 12~50 x56

    Thanks one and all; I believe he is going ahead and getting one. I had a similar dilemma between a 3~20x and a 5~25, luckily I knew people with both and the majority who had the 5~25 told me they rarely used it above 18x so I bought the 3~20 and haven't looked back. I also have an older 3~12 PM1 S&B and quite frankly that does almost everything I require of it.

    Schmidt & Bender 12~50 x56

    A friend who has shot TR with iron sights for many years is thinking of doing a bit of F TR and wondered if the above scope, (8 MoA) would be his ideal. I have no knowledge of the 12~50 but my initial thought would be that the higher end of the magnification would be unusable due to the extreme power. Can anybody throw any light on this with their own experience please?

    Which PM11 to buy?

    I also went for a 3-20 (FFP P4LF) I know a lot of people who have 5-25's but they all say they rarely use them over 16~18x power hence my choice. I also use a 3-12 on another rifle and it sometimes makes me wonder why I bothered with a 3-20!

    ear defenders

    Job done! It's taken the best part of 8 weeks to get my ear defenders back, Talking headsets apologised for the delay and have been waiting on parts from MSA Sordin. (good comms the whole time from Talking Headsets) The cost was £46 and I am now in possession of Trigger's broom! There's very little I recognise of the originals having had the ear pads, circuitry and head band replaced as part of their fixed price repair. I would go as far to say the squelch has been reduced and the sound if far clearer than when I bought them.

    Competition at Bisley

    I shot with Maurice last week and he's still using that No.5, which incidentally is actually a No.4 with No.5 furniture on. The rifle is now on it's 3rd barrel! It took me a few moments to recognise Peter Sorony with that hair.
