  1. Brillo

    General purpose target rifle.

    Be mindful of the fact that if you decide to venture into F TR, as you intimated, you are limited to .223 and .308. Not many shoot the former these days, so you need a good 308 rig.
  2. Contact HPS-TR at Newent, Gloucestershire ( they are currently at Bisley for the Imperial Meeting). They make a Delrin block to fit an Anschutz rail. Also look on the Shooting Shed website. Dave B makes a beautiful stainless steel one. I have one. If I can quickly locate it I’ll post a photo for you.
  3. I’ll take the lot for £44 per tub.

    Full Length Bushing Die 6.5x47L

    I’m looking for a 6.5x47L full length bushing die preferably a Redding.

    NRA RCO Handloading Rule

    Just playing devils advocate, is the NRA LabRadar calibrated?

    Quickload update

    The RS powders are no different from the download available on the RS website.

    F Open Stock for Barnard P

    HPS-TR have very nice System Gemini stock just come in. It’s a beauty.
  8. FWIW, I am the lucky owner of both, until my 47 sells on here. A few replies have already correctly stated how accurate the 6.5x47 is and I FAC confirm that. I’ve found it almost insanely accurate. In my experience it’s best with 120/123 grain bullets and IMHO these aren’t really suitable for 1000 yards. Where the Creedmoor scores (no pun intended) is the ease with which it shoots at longer ranges. I have a Creedmoor smithed by Baldy and it just walks 900 and 1000 yards. I’ve not tried it against 7mm canons but that’s not what it was made for.
  9. Michal, I suggest giving HPS-TR a call. Matt regularly ships to mainland Europe.

    Specifying my first custom FTR rifle

    Another key point about the stock is to go for standard F TR forend. A friend reminded me about this. Many of us have found that the long forend is prone to torquing and the shorter one avoids this.
