    17H - 18, 20 or 22 inch barrel . . .

    I have an Anschutz 1771 in 17 Hornet, I went for this primarily over the Weihrauch because I loved my old 1517 HMR. it was such a quality product and it had 5 shot mags not 4. I had to wait about 4 months from ordering to get it and it didn't even come screw cut, although I understand you can now get them with factory cut barrels. I sent mine straight to Neil McKillop who shortened it to 18" and fitted it into a GRS stock for me, something he swore he wouldn't do again as it was a right PITA to do. Fortunately Anschutz now do a lovely picatinny rail for this action as originally I thought I might have to get one made. The rifle shoots great, about 1/2 MOA or better with the Hornady 20gr factory ammo, I have no intention of reloading for this rifle as I will use too much much and high volume reloading holds no interest for me whatsoever. It is pretty much point and shoot out to 200 yards as long as it is not windy, it is more affected by the wind than I thought it would be but it is only a 20 gr bullet after all. Unfortunately the rifle has had to go back to RUAG as I have been having feed problems, when the mags are full and you draw the bolt back over it, it was pulling the top round over the back rim of the round below which jams up the mag and means you ruin the tip of the 2nd round down when you push the bolt forward. A real pain in the arse in what has otherwise been a very positive experience. Hopefully they will get it sorted ASAP

    Thermal Imaging - Whats any good please

    Never ever buy a Guide IR517, they are just not reliable, I should know I have had 4 and all have gone back with faults.

  5. I might be interested in some of the reloading stuff if and when it becomes available

    I am going to have mine cut to 20" when I eventually get it.

    Drone/Rifle dilemma

    223 for me, 308 seems a bit unnecessary for fox work. Rail here: https://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/product/reed-resolution-cz-527-aluminium-low-profile-picatinny-rail/
  8. I have 8 x 50 boxes of Remington 17gr 17 HMR Ammo. Bought last year. £10 per box collected from SE Essex with your FAC. Way cheaper than any gun shop. Buy the lot and I will throw in a part box of Winchester 17gr and a few more odd Remington as well. Also advertised elswhere
  9. Thanks for the very comprehensive reply, much appreciated. My normal powder supplier told me this morning that IMR 4451 was not available in the UK yet!!! I will look out for some at other suppliers. Thanks for the tip about RS62, I will look into that if I can't get any 4451. Good news that 4451 meters better than H4350 as that is the worst powder I have ever used in my Chargemaster, about 1/3 over-throws at least is the norm.
  10. I am getting low on H4350, got enough to last a while but I am starting to look at alternatives as it appears I have missed the boat on getting any more. I can get some IMR 4350 but from reading up online although this is very similar to H4350 I would still need to work up a new load for it and I don't really want to start on this when I would imagine that this will be going in the near future as well. So I am looking at alternatives and IMR4451 looks like a good bet for me, rifle is a 22.250 firing 77gr TMK so not much data online to go on, but IMR 4451 is apparently a temperature stabilised REACH compliant version of H4350 so should be a good bet for me, anybody know when some might be available? Other alternatives might be N150 or even RL17 which I already use in my WSM.

    Where is the link to the video, not trying to knock you at all, just interested?
  12. Great condition, few tiny marks on action and barrel but otherwise mint. Adjustable power: 12, 18 and 28 ft lbs Regulated, running at 28 ft lbs, very accurate with 16gr FX pellets. Air tube recently recently reconditioned, all work done (inc original FAC conversion) by Ben Taylor Currently has a home made picatinny rail fitted this can easily be removed if required. Includes 6 x 8 shot magazines, shot count is about 40 full power from a 220 bar fill, so shot count roughly matches no of shots in mags. You must have a spare FAC Air .22 slot on your FAC to purchase this rifle. Includes the Weihrauch moderator as long as you have a slot for that as well. Price is £500 or near offer collected from SE Essex, may send via RFD at your cost but only after full payment.
