    .20 cal moderators

    I use a Swift Nightingale moderator for my .204 and my .223. It works just the job for both! Jamie
  2. How very dare you T! My .204 is not "Scruffy"!

    Tikka T3 Action screws Thread?

    There are quite a few very talented Gunsmiths on this forum, I'd ask them first. People like Bradders and Ronin, and many more... Better to support the UK shooting industry to. Granted it's not a "Custom Rifle", but every bit helps. Jamie
  5. I'm surprised the accupell's don't distort under such energy! With regards to being ridiculed, If you know your stuff like you say, then there should be no worries. As I've found out myself, there are some very strange people on forums! Not so much with UKV, a great bunch on here! Get it Chronographed! Jamie
  6. Aren't you intrigued to know what ft/lbs it is now? I am! Is there a chronograph you could lay your hands on? Go on, you know you want to!
  7. Safety is obviously the order of the day whenever reloading, but George's comment now highlighted in blue sums it up for me. What does spring to mind though, would be whether breaking the seal on several tubs of powder, would mean when I got to my last tub, would it have degraded at a quicker rate due to the break in the original "foil type" seal? Although I appreciate it depends on how much you use, and mixing quantities accordingly. Jamie

    Upside down Primer

    I've had 2 do that when getting used to a hand primer. I just gently removed them with a de-capping die wearing eye protection. Jamie

    204 Ruger - 12 twist.

    Not sure of the twist on my 2 year old CZ 527 in .204 Ruger. But it shoots both 32 and 40 V-Max at .3" at 100 yards, doing 3700 fps as long as I do my bit. There's a member on here who lives close to me, who was kind enough to invite me round to his home, he gave me good advice, along with some 50 and 55 grain .204 bullets to try. And with 3 different viles of powders to try. When I bought the .204 rifle, I don't recall the "sales-man's" actual wording, however, it was implied the rifle would shoot the 50's and 55's. Which was just not true! I never used any of the 55's, as it was obvious from the first 10 or so rounds of the 50's that they wouldn't group. I was happy to return the bullets and powder, but for unknown reason's to me, none of my emails or pm's were replied to....... Back to the point, I'm not sure if all the " modern" (2 year old-ish) CZ 527's will handle a 40 V-Max. Perhaps, the more "qualified folks on here could enlighten me"... Just my few pence worth.. Jamie
  10. Really!? I feel enlightened....
  11. Thanks Al, I had 35-40 yards in my mind, but I didn't want to put it to chance. Jamie
  12. Apologies, I worded it incorrectly. I can headshot a rabbit or body shot a pigeon at 50 yards easy enough. But, will a pellet retain enough kinetic energy or velocity to kill the rabbit or pigeon outright, or within a few seconds at that distance? I'll edit my post. Cheers. I agree with your post totally. As I said to Shuggy, I worded my post badly. I've edited it to clarify my point. Jamie

  14. Hi folks. I'm after some constructive advice/reminder. A brief explanation to put you in the picture. I've recently acquired a new permission. Not huge at around 38 acres, but lots of "relaxed" quarry around. The main reason I gained the permission, was on recommendation. Which is always nice.... The main problem the land owner has is fox and rats. (Fox mainly at lambing time) But he also wants the rabbit population thinned out a bit, and any passing pigeons sorted when I'm there. I'll need the land looked at by my local FEO as my FAC is closed. Personally, I'll be surprised if it gets cleared for rimfire, let alone centrefire... So for now I'll be doing a little decoying, and dusting off my Air Arms S410. Which brings me to my point. I'm not a bad shot, but to be honest, it's been a while since I've used a "standard power" air rifle to carry out pest control. Rats won't be an issue as were only talking 15-20 yards maximum, and that's what I've mainly used it for, for some time. But I'm reluctant to shoot anything over 25-30 yards for fear of the pellet not retaining enough energy/velocity to achieve a clean kill, or at least within a few seconds. So; with all things being as equal as they could ever be, and safety taken as a given, what sort of distance would be the maximum I should shoot a pigeon or rabbit at? Thanks in advance. Jamie. Edited for clarification.
  15. Now that is one beauty! Good luck with the sale, (Doubt you'll need it!) and Lucky F***** who ever gets to buy it!! Jamie
