    Remington 700 floor plate.

    contact Baldie on here he has mine from when I converted to AI mag :-)
  2. That brings a smile to a true yorkshire man :-)
  3. Out of interest Dave, how many times do you reckon your brass has been reloaded by annealing after every firing? I have just started down the same route of annealing after each fire, with new Nosler brass for both rifles. Only on 2nd reloads now... I was getting neck cracking after 5-6 reloads before on Remington brass without annealing...

    Photo bucket

    Wow, I didn't know that... I just replied to a post yesterday & embedded links to Photobucket & didn't realise the pics didn't show 'til now. So who is everyone using now instead of PB? Can we embed thumbnail jpeg images direct? thanks ;-) edited to add, going to delete all my PB images :-)

    R.E.M. 700 mag conversion

    Drop Dave at Valkyrie Rifles a line or pm him on here - Baldie He converted my .204 Rem700 to take 10 round mags while it was in for a re-barrel. He did a cracking job too :-) Edited due to Photobucket website's misconceived business ideas...

    Never assume

    Sadly NO, I will still use my thrower for a 95% charge & then use the more accurate TM :-)

    Never assume

    I while back I posted seeking advice on a replacement powder thrower. My RCBS thrower was playing up, giving inconsistant throws & being a right PIA..... Thanks to all that made suggestions :-) I bought a Target Master from 1066 to ease my pain & a great bit of kit that is, with the intention that using my innaccurate thrower to give something near 95% of what I needed. But my powder thrower still wasn't working right, sometimes 95% the next throw 50%... Nothing added up... Everything looked OK so I persevered... I almost bought another thrower at the Northern shooting show... Today, again it played up trying to load a batch so having time to spare I stripped it down to component parts & found a tiny bit of a seal from a powder bottle lodged in the dispenser tube... It's now working as it should ;-) Just goes to show, just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there...

    Variation turn around

    WY weren't doing variations at the show. I asked why NY were & WY wasn't.... No answer but she said she would take it in for me if I completed it there & then :-) btw the stall was advertised as "NY & Durham" no mention of WY... I had to ask if they were there... It was dissappointing that NY can do variations on the day but other forces won't...

    Variation for FAC Air Rifle

    PC & GT3 The Impact was at the top of my list until I found out about the new Crown. The new smooth twist X barrel plus the magnitude of air adjustments & the Impact lead times swung it for me ;-) I was also considering the Evanix sniper / X2 but I was unable to find a UK dealer who could get me the FAC varient in .25.... :-(

    Variation for FAC Air Rifle

    I rang Livens & I now have a FX Crown in .25 cal FAC on pre order. It will probably be the first one in the UK ... :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9FltK2aiWY

    Variation turn around

    Well done West Yorkshire FLD Variation form submitted Sunday at the Northern Shooting show stand, 7th May. Got a phone call on Monday saying post my FAC in & it would be granted 8th May, I still dunno why they didn't take it Sunday... Licence received back in todays post :-) 15th May, but processed & signed off 9th May. So Royal Mail took 6 days to deliver it...
