    17 cal bullets

    If they work, they work, if they don't I'll try something different

    17 cal bullets

    Henry Krank sell .17 17gn ballistic tips (even though they say soft point) just working a load with them in my 17rem now
  3. S4 is good but offers little protection and is difficult to souce Harkila to me have the superior harness and gives very good comfort, the bino caddy is good but the magnet will struggle with larger/RF style bino's I currently have an athalon pouch, comfy, but I added a bungee closure as again the magnet struggled Ridgeline have just brought out their version which looks good but I have no experience of it. For reference my bino's are Leica 10x42 Geovid

    Tumbler media

    I think the stuff used in reptile (whatever you call their tanks) is walnut media, so a pet shop should be a source

  10. My experience with my Kestrel 2000 when the screen stopped working. UK supplier, nothing we can do although there is a black friday sale on this weekend Kestrel themselves, nothing we can do, although you can send it back to us, we will recondition it and give it to a US sniper #freedom (I added the freedom bit) Both said sorry this doesn't normal happen
  11. Didn't Dave Theobald (Theoben) do this with an FX air rifle, the last few inches was externally pressed and not cut. There was talk of using it on RF as well but don't think anything came of it
  12. Odd question, but what size are the legs that slot into the target frame in the range butts please, 2"x2" pehaps
