    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
  2. 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!
  3. No problems there with mine but having major connection issues with the new app which I had high hopes for.
  4. Have shot there many times.....Tiff is brill......the venue is brill....the shooting is challenging but great fun....totally recommended.
  5. 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.

    338LM - 250gr velocity loads

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

    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.

    FCSA Update

    Or constructively try to do something to oppose a likely ban as Chris and the FCSA are doing rather than criticise or undermine pro-active efforts to protect our legal / legitimate sport. You are right ....everyone is entitled to their opinion.......in my naeivity I was hoping that shooting would find supporters in its own ranks....silly me!

    Chanonry...your response is a disgrace.

    FCSA Update

    This is definitely for all of us to pursue. I am an FCSA member but only shoot 223, 260, 6mm and 338 LM.......they will come after us a bite at a time!
  13. Nearest I have is 46g H4831sc in 260 Rem with that bullet....but of course that powder is on its way out!
  14. Laurie Hollands review of Murom primers found that standard (non magnum) 223 Murom primers are no good over about 50,000psi of pressure....see Target Shooter website.
  15. Can only agree completely with VarmLR.....the media are banging on about acid and knives but never mentioning the firearms which are roped into the same ridiculous review and would, no doubt, be swept up in any parliamentary voting driven by the acid / knife issues. Acid can be tapped from car batteries, knives can be made from screwdrivers and chisels.......how can you ban these things in the real world? I despair of ever hearing sense from our political classes. I shall be writing to my MP to ask how they will be addressing these seperate issues.
  16. Used these for the first time last Sunday and very impressed. Can't seem to get through to Bisley range office at present so does anyone know the size of the v bulls on electronic targets at 1000 yards on Stickledown and 300 on Century? Also are the v bull sizes scaled in any way at various ranges?
  17. Thanks Mark.......if I read it right the v bull is .5 moa at all distances.......I assume the range office sets this up at the selected distance.
  18. We figured out the on / off and target clearance easily enough......did not see means of selecting specific target type.

    McM A5 for stalking

    TOTALLY agree with HTG Adjustable stock for stalking / tactical shoots.......A5 a bit clunky for the field. I have both but if I had to choose only one it would be the HTG ADJ with no regrets.

    Grub screws for Hornady Lock ‘n Load kit

  21. DaveT

    Learning to adjust a scope.

    You can zero at 300 yards BUT its unreliable due to wind effects , shooter aim errof etc, etc and 100yds is a much more sound baseline. Chronographs such as Magnetospeed and Labradar are best but costly....suggest you see if someone will help you out here unless cost is not a concern.
  22. Triple2 I hope nothing untoward has happened but you have not responded to my PMs or open-forum messages regarding your sale item. If I do not hear from you by Midday today I will need to look elsewhere.
