    223 lapua brass

    Or a Lee collet die.......... Pete
  4. I had the same initial problem, until I bought one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/imuto-27000mAh-Portable-Qualcomm-External-Quick-Charge-Power-bank/dp/B07FL1T718/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?hvadid=80882856020416&hvbmt=bp&hvdev=c&hvqmt=p&keywords=imuto&qid=1558280182&s=gateway&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1 Fully charged, I can leave mine on for at least 5 x 4-hour sessions and still have plenty left. But beware, the stupidly frail micro USB socket on the Labrad body will get smashed if you're not VERY careful when plugging the lead in and out. Stupid design on an otherwise good product......a standard USB port would be far stronger and better. I'm looking into modding mine. Pete

    tikka 595/590/695 spring

    Well I just popped mine out and had a look..............I have softer springs that will fit, but then it won't eject consistently, and hard springs that are just too tight to slide in......so sorry, not much help, I'm afraid. Pete

    tikka 595/590/695 spring

    I have a selection of springs of this type................I'll have a look at my 595 bolt and see if I have anything suitable. Pete

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    My trial run with molten salt definitely softened the neck/shoulder area. The difference was easily felt simply by squashing the neck before and after with a pair of long nosed pliers. (a dud case........) As for annealing too much of the case body, jury is still out............. Pete
  8. An unopened box of 100 Lapua 308 Palma cases. (small primer). £70 posted Pete

    Scope Rail Bedding Material Options

    If you want intimate surface contact, ie a gap filler, I'd go for the steel powdered version. But beware, it'll still stick like s++t to a blanket, so a liberal application of boot polish on the receiver is advised if you ever want to get it off again. Pete

    Try RS 52 with the SMK 80 grainers...............a cracking combo. Pete

    .22LR Dilemma

    The 64 is not as good as the 54...............hence the price difference. https://www.nsrashop.co.uk/products/anschutz-match-54 https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/rifles/anschutz/bolt-action/22-lr/match-54-180925233107008 Re-Pete
  14. Huh? That's a new one......I'll look into it. Meanwhile, you have first shout (if you want 'em, that is...) I'll try pm'ing you. Pete
  15. But whatever you do, don't mention that you want it for shooting...................😉 Pete

  17. I'd suggest reading this from cover to cover to see why this has happened...............it's not just the aspiration of one guy, the proposals are based on good science. http://www.chrispackham.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/Peoples-Manifesto-Download.pdf Pages 13 to 15 are particularly relevant to shooters.

    Sourcing projectiles

    Depends what you mean by "local" RFD................the nearest two don't keep the stuff I use, and frankly, I'm not prepared to wait while a "special order" grinds through the system, let alone paying more than I have to for it. Pete

    Good for you..........I feel better knowing that I've just saved £80...............😁 Pete

    Sourcing projectiles

    I stand corrected..............a pity, they're reliable, and their prices are good, shipping etc. notwithstanding. Pete

    Behind the license revocation

    We feed 'em every night in our garden................ have been for the 39 years we've lived here, and I can verify that they will eat practically anything. Peanuts are very popular with the badgers and the odd urban fox that turns up, plus having food readily available means they don't dig up the neighbours lawn so much. Pete

    Plecotus, get yourself a Jack Russell.........they're quieter than a .410 and much more fun. 😁 Pete
