    Legally classed as game,but how their numbers are controlled depends on the area,in wensleydale theyre not very common so arnt shot like the rabbit;which are in plague like numbers again.In other areas ive worked where the hare was numerous their numbers were controlled to keep visits from the 'caravan club' to a minimum so they were treated as 'vermin' .All depends on the ammount of hares in the area and the impact they have as to how theyre classified by the individual.

    Case Lube

    +1 for the lanolin and alcohol.Used lee and rcbs in the past but the above works much better for me.
  4. Is this the one i swapped you for the broken nightforce nxs? If it is its 35mm tube and it went back to ior to get a fault repaired,not just a full service.something you should have tried doing with the scope you swapped for it. Hope this helps.

    Nightforce nxs

    I rang the SGC yesterday and explained the problem,they were very helpful and told me to post it to them and theyd sort it.So hopefully things will work out ok. Thanks for all your advice.

    Nightforce nxs

    I think something internally has given up so hopefully it will be covered by the warranty.Time will tell though.

    Nightforce nxs

    Thats encouraging.I will be sending it to nightforce for certain.

    Nightforce nxs

    Its encouraging that you got a good conclusion eventually.Could i ask whether you sent it back via a distributer or on your own? If you sent it back yourself,did you contact nightforce first? Paul

    Nightforce nxs

    It wont track reliably.If you put on 4 clicks at 100 yards it may move 6 inch up and 2 inch right.It will hold a group though.However if i then move 4 clicks down it will move randomly.Almost like each click has a random value.

    I believe they have an unlimited warranty.I will give SGC a bell on monday.

    Nightforce nxs

    I swapped scopes with a chap and it soon became obvious why he wanted to swap.Anyhow the scope ive been lumbered with,an nxs,needs to go back for warranty work.Anyone had any experience doing this bearing in mind i have no receipt.Thanks in advance. Paul

    Sounds like theyre doing a good job of conserveing grouse numbers which is their job i.e. what theyre being paid to do.You are now fortunate enough to have obtained a new peice of ground to shoot over on the strength of this.well done.

    If youre returning 70% on released birds you need to carry on doing whatever it is your doing .70% return is pretty special.

    Look,there are commercial pheasant shoots that make a good profit,usually the bigger shoots,shooting big bags.Theres a lot of smaller commercial shoots which do run on tight margins.Without farm payments/subsidies etc they would not exist.Im lucky in that for the last 22 years my employer had no financial worries,as long as the estate didnt run in the red he was happy.I know plenty of owners who run their estate on the same basis.In effect they shoot their personal/family days at no cost,paid for by the let days.
