  1. Bought for me earlier this week from Amazon for £220, but I'll never use it. I don' t need to see stuff 300 yards away and am quite happy with my wee Exelon. Turned on to ensure it is working, other wise unused. £180 inc signed for postage. This monocular is exactly the same as the Bushnell Equinox Z.
  2. Docter Classic 6x42. Purchased new from Edinburgh Rifles 6 months ago. Can email pictures to those interested. £210 inc signed for postage. Ultra clear and superb dusk/dawn scope. Inserts to reduce 30mm rings to 26mm (£19 from Brownells U SA) included. No 4 reticle.
  3. I have the Ledray F900 and it is very good. The dimmer control is a great feature. I also use Evo Mk2 T38, T50 and am awaiting delivery of a T75. They also have interchangeable pills and are, imo, the best value torches available. The F900 kit is on offer from Opticswarehouse at £99.00.

    223 55gr load data

    My CZ527 is 1:9. I find 24g of Benchmark with 55g Sierra Blitzkings works very well for me.

    Rabbits and .22

    RWS for me also. Extremely accurate and consistent.

    Moderator Cleaning

    I just wash my Wildcat Evo in soapy water and rinse off. Let it dry and give it a spray of oil which I let drip dry and then reassemble.

    Has the .17 HMR had its day?

    Have owned HMR for many years. Never had a problem with ammo. Very very accurate with 17 Hornady.

    Kahles Helia 8x50

    Members 241 posts Report post Just took a punt on the above scope. Seems it was a spare scope and is in mint, practically unused condition [actually described as new for this reason] . Paid £325. I realise I could have bought a S&B 8x56 for another £125, but don't want to go beyond 50mm. Anyone familiar with this scope? Reviews seem pretty positive, but nothing beats hearing from those who have had 'hands on' experience.

    CZ527 Single Set Trigger

    Many thaks for the replies chaps. Interesting to hear your views on the SST....good and bad!

    CZ527 Single Set Trigger

    I've continued to use the SST and still find I get better accuracy than with the standard trigger. Really enjoy using it now.
  11. Up to recently, I've rarely used the SST on my CZ527 223. Always considered the trigger too far forward when set. Whilst shooting across a valley the other day [off Quad Sticks with back against stone pillar] I decided to give the SST a try. All I can say is, I've never shot better! Trigger breaks like glass and was nowhere near as uncomfortable as I recalled. For safety reasons, I set the trigger just before each shot, and had 3 x 200m and 1 x300 rabbit/s and a 120m pigeon in 5 shots. Conditions were ideal....bright with little wind. Took my rifle to work this morning and tested it at 200m, again using the SST. For the first time ever, I had 3 touching holes at this range. Have had them within just over an inch at 200m, but never touching. I'm using 24g of Benchmark with 55g Blitzkings and needless to sat, they're superb. For whatever reason, 55g V-max do not group as tightly. I'm aware that some folk don't seem to get on with the SST and prefer to lighten the standard trigger. I have the latter down to just over 3lb, but reckon I'd do better using the SST for those longer ranger shots. Happy to keep the standard trigger at 3lb for general field use. I'm interested to hear from other folks who use the SST and from folk who, for whatever reason, don't.
