    22-250 1x12 twist

    I have tried nearly all the bullets in the 50-60gr area for a 12 twist 22-250 and the stand out one for me was the Sierra 55gr Blitzking, I use H380 but N140 should work as well

    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.

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

    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/
  10. 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
