  1. I would choose a Lurcher for character, loyalty, friendship and sheer fun. We have a Wheaton Collie Lurcher and I have become quite a fan of him since he arrived from a kennel at 15 months old. he did take some work and is still far too clever for his own good however he makes a good companion for us and our working Labrador plus a Lurcher in full flight is a sight to behold. Just one thing, a good friend once old me 'Lurcher's steal things and cause fights' Not sure about fights however he will even pinch tools off the bench in the workshop given the chance...
  2. BAT 6XC

    Another good looking rifle there Dave and I can relate to the lack of shooting, despite spending virtually every waking hour with rifles, shotguns or revolvers I doubt I have taken more than 500 rifle shots this year outside of testing and probably only the same with a shotgun. I am hoping 2018 will allow me to spend more time out although I somehow doubt it
  3. Fab CZ 455

    I would agree, I have a 452 heavy barrel here that is best described as boring as it just hits what it is pointed at. A simply superb little rifle.
  4. Micro carbide boring bar inserts

    I use Horn Supermini type the majority of the time, the Cutwel are certainly OK and I have had solid carbide made to my design in the past for specific applications.
  5. Best Wellies?

    I use Le Chameau Vierzonord for shooting, beating, walking, driving and everything else. Comfortable and long lasting (for me) They are the only wellies I can wear for 12 hour stints and still be able to walk in at the end.
  6. New BAR 22's

    Now there is a thought
  7. New BAR 22's

    I do like the look of that Mark, it looks very handy.
  8. Schmidt pmii issue.

    My guess is it is lubricant and I have seen it before with another European manufacturer of a new 'scope. I know it is obvious however have you checked with both eyes? S&B are probably going to take anything up to 16 weeks right now so it is well worth contacting Sabine or whoever is there these days and explaining the situation and seeing if you can get it into the system yet hang onto it until they are ready for it.
  9. I have a 500A stock and forend in wood in very good condition that I took off the wifes gun earlier this week if that helps any. PM me a mail address and I can send some pictures.
  10. For those guys with switch barrels.....

    I shoot a 7,62x51 Accuracy International with a second barrel. Lincolnshire list the second as 'Barrel - 6,5x47' for my AI, plus an ammunition allocation. The rifle is kept in the 6,5x47 configuration however my FEO is happy with the way things are.
  11. I suspect you will struggle with this. You can push EAW Apel rings into service with the Sako Optlock bases with some fiddling however I am not sure they do anything near a 40,0mm ring set.Alternatively if you want an IOR and would settle for a 35,0mm tube the 34,0mm rings can be bored to suit although it is a PITA. Finally you can fit a Picatinny type rail and use the IOR 40,0mm rings which is not the prettiest solution however it would work.
  12. NRA Council Ballot

    Good point
  13. NRA Council Ballot

    I second Paddy's comments regarding Tim Stewart. He is exactly the sort of person that is needed on the committee.
  14. WANTED - 9.3x64 Reloading Dies

    Mark I will PM you
  15. WANTED - 9.3x64 Reloading Dies
