    6.5 PRC

    When and if Hornady factory ammo turns up here. You get a 6.5 short action mag that will shoot factory ammo. Not going to change the industry by any means but if it became available over here it would be cool. I think anything that gives us shooters more choice is a good thing. Unfortunately it's Hornady that are giving it to us🤔 I think a 6mm PRC would be interesting. http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2018/08/its-official-saami-approves-hornady-6-5-prc-and-300-prc/

    Borden Mountaineer 7mm-08

    Beautiful build. A nice touch on the ejection port modification. Not too sure about your photo booth though😁

    New sizing dies from Exact

    Could tell they wouldn't be cheap and I assume you don't even get a seating die with that. Did you order it in SAAMI spec or send 10 cases 5x fired and only neck sized😵

    I think you need to clarify what type of camping. If I can drive my truck to the location It could be a very long check list. However if you're talking about wild camping, on foot only the list is quite different. However which ever way you look at it both will require beer😁

    New sizing dies from Exact

    Just came across these. I'm not sure if they've been around for a while or not. They look very nice and an innervate way to size. http://www.exactshooting.com/exactSizingDie.html
  6. Thanks guys. I hadn't heard of the PSR. Looks as though it's kinda the gen2 version. Here's a comparison chart I found quite useful. https://www.accu-shot.com/Atlas-Bipods-Compare.php
  7. Thanks, I hadn't realized there was.so much flex in an Atlas. I wouldn't mind seeing the Fortmeirer in the flesh but they do look a bit bulky for my needs. The Accu Tac is one I'm definitely looking at as it seam to fit the brief. Just so many models to choose, https://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/product/accu-tac-lr-10-qd-bipod-7-11-5-inch/
  8. In the market for upgrading my Harris this year. I know things have moved on a bit in bipods and wondering whats new that people are using? I want something light, compact with a wide stance and plenty of movent. Mostly hunting and mid range target use. Atlas seam to tick all the boxes still and I know are highly recommend. Teir-One have a new tactical bipod that looks good. Though the spread looks quite narrow which is what puts me off the likes of Sparten. Anyone using Teir-One, how do you get on with them? What else are people using?
  9. 7saum. Great all rounder. I will have mine for sale in the Autumn for half your budget. 👍

    Starting out

    Do you know anyone local that reloads? If so, by far the best way to learn basics. There are also some good YouTube tutorials. Be aware there are also some crap/dangerous ones! Once you start you'l definitely see your round cound go up. So don't expect to save money. When you shoot you first one hole group or drop the first fox with your own ammo. Well worth for that feeling alone in my opinion

    Bushcraft Hunting Knife

    I prefer a 3 - 4mm blade stock and scandi grind for my Bushcraft knife. My stalking knifes have a 2.5 - 3mm blade stock with a hollow grind or micro bevel. Bushcraft blades need to take more abuse and a stalking knife doesn't. Also I find a longer thinner blade with sharp drop point better for bleeding.

    Satterlee load development PtII

    Very nice. How many rounds have you fired to achieve this load? I think this will be my method when I'm working up the next new load.

    Harris or quality copy 9x13 bipods

    Thanks Deker. I did see your ad but unfortunately not quite what I'm looking for. ATB.

    Harris or quality copy 9x13 bipods

    After a set of bipods must be swivel and notched legs. 9 - 13 If you have a spare pair that aren't being used I'm interested.
