    If only

    my 3 UK hunting calibres are and continue to be: 22 BR 6mm Vais 7 Shehane

    is a 243 AI more accurate than a Standard 243

    I've owned both and there is nothing to suggest one is more 'accurate' than the other. I continue to shoot the Ackley a lot in the field and regard it very highly as a calibre. That having been said I think there is little difference in practical usage unless shooting out to quite significant range with heavy for calibre bullets. For me the increased MV with the 105 A Max over the standard 243 makes a big difference in practical terms. I think the cases last longer in the Ackley but have nothing to prove it and I am able to use N165 (which I think would be too slow burning for the standard calibre) which is very cool burning and soft on barrels. My current barrel has around 700 shots through it and still going very well. cheers Rich

    Show us your tikka?

    Here's my 3 main hunting rifles, from front to back: 22BR on a 595 243 Ackley on a 595 7 Shehane on a 695 all with KKC stocks and swaro 6-24x50 1/6 moa turrets. Made by Neil Mckillop and they shoot extremely well. Cheers Rich

    Sightron v Nightforce

    The Swarovski 6-24 with the 1/6th MOA clicks is the best all round scope out there in my view, they do come up from time to time and I use them exclusively on my hunting rifles Macleods of Tain often have them as do I (although I don't at the moment). A service on a second hand one by Swarovski is usually free so you can have one as good as new within 3 weeks. I have sent 7 of these back to Swarovski for service having been bought second hand in the last year for clients and myself they really take a lot of beating and at around £850 which seems the going rate they are incredibly good value. If using it for hunting then look for the duplex reticle as the crosshair is too fine in poor light. All the best Rich (I am a Swarovski dealer so will declare my bias)

    Sightron v Nightforce

    The elephant in the room being that there have been a lot of people that have had problems with sightron in terms of their dialling being inconsistent. If you get a good one they're fine if not it will be extremely frustrating. I have also shot a rifle with a sightron scope alternately with my Nightforce NF scope on my own range where at some times of the day the target is in the shade. In these circumstances the light transmission and clarity of the night force is far superior to the sightron and indeed the person that owned the sightron immediately replaced it with a Nightforce. However the bottom line, as always in my view, is you get what you pay for and as has been pointed out the sightrons are a lot cheaper. The after sales service is excellent if you do have a problem and if you are on a budget then they are a good option. For what it's worth I shoot Nightforce on my F class guns as the dialling is excellent. For hunting I use Swarovski as the glass is second to none in my view and there are bargains to be had second hand for sure. In summary it largely depends on the application as to what would be suitable. Cheers Rich

    New guy and 7x64

    First stop for a long range load is to determine the twist in your barrel. This will define what weight of bullet that you can stabilise. If your barrel will stabilise the VLD then happy days give them a go likewise the 162 amax. you may be able to stabilise the 180 grain bullets I f you have a 1in9 twist although you may struggle to get the MV required to make it worth it. you'll have to try and see but the rate of twist will be the primary defining factor.
