    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    I once had a Sightron but found that eye positioning was unforgivingly critical compared to my S & Bs. I could not get on with it.
  2. Just tested one of these in 260 Rem. Makes homing in on setback a breeze. You still have the coarse setup ....thread it down and then back off a tad...but after that SO much easier than the standard screw it in a bit and see if it gives the right sizing...repeat until you overshoot and push it back too much! Easy detent clicks after initial coarse setup give precise half thou incremental shoulder pushback on newly annealed Lapua brass...I think their website says .001" per click but I get half that. Brill quality dies...I will be getting other calibres to replace my current FLS set.

    Whidden Gunworks click adjustable FLS dies

    They do mail them at minimal cost.
  4. I have done several of these and you would not believe how much fun and good shooting is involved unless you try. Tiff puts incredible energy and ingenuity into these shoots... expect to be enjoyably exhausted by days end!
  5. I tried the monopod bug quickly went back to a TAB Gear bag..... much quicker to adjust with a squeeze.
  6. I will take 500 if you can pm me payment details please.
  7. I have one...takes seconds to adjust... is repeatable.
  8. Ouch..... as expensive as it is embarrasing! I can picture him furtively looking around and hoping nobody noticed!
  9. Shooting the bayonet is a WTF error!
  10. Nowt wrong with the Magnetospeed either... but watch out for the strap loosening and it will be a faff to get the spacers right and the bayonet properly just under the bore. They all have foibles but having both Magnetospeed & Labradar its Labradar for me. Shots being missed are usually due to incorrect trigger settings in the unit user setup or having the muzzle too far away.
  11. Nowt wrong with the Labradar... it will measure MV just as well as the US version... it simply won't track bullets downrange much past 50 yards whereas the US version goes further.
  12. It defo is 900 metres. I used to shoot my 338 there untilI figured I was wasting expensive 338lm ammo at such short range!

    6.5mm 123gr Matchkings

    I run them in 260 rem and find that load and POI are exactly the same as 123g Scenars. FWIW I use 41.5g of N550
  14. Wanted for AR15 if there is one out there gathering dust. Cheers

    Did seem a good response from BASC......really don't know how they refrained from 'rolling eyes' at the ineptitude and ignorance of the subject matter exhibited by many of the questioners! To be fair the panel had obviously been fed a shed-load of lies and false info by the police etc
  18. Android I have got it working now on a Samsung S7 and recent Galaxy tablet but only after removing and reinstalling the App......no idea what that changed!
  19. No problems there with mine but having major connection issues with the new app which I had high hopes for.
  20. Have shot there many times.....Tiff is brill......the venue is brill....the shooting is challenging but great fun....totally recommended.

    338LM - 250gr velocity loads

    Not tried RS80.......N570 works just fine.
  22. DaveT

    338LM - 250gr velocity loads

    95g of N570 gives me 2950 with 250g Scenars....30 inch barrel......no pressure issues....normal caveats of course.

    FCSA Update

    Watching out for the overhead pigs! Nice thought though!

    FCSA Update

    And your excellent summation is the whole point of the OPs post and follow up commentary. Supporting each other regardless of our calibre / gun-style preferences is surely a good thing.
