  1. Those look like a Lane 1 into 2 tissue forceps/clamp with box joint. Not to be confused with Lane’s dissecting forceps nor Lane’s bone-holding forceps.
  2. Thanks for the pics. I’m already itching for next season.
  3. It has been a fantastic season! I'm looking forward to next year and the new .22LR version!
  4. Is there a tool to adjust elevation of the foresight?
  5. I had this problem with a new rifle. I carefully ran a die over the threads, which removed a tiny amount of metal, and my 1/2UNF Ase Utra fitted fine thereafter. I'm certainly no engineer/gunsmith (the tap and die set were from Aldi, bought on a whim years ago!) so I suspect someone more experienced would have no problem. If things went wrong, you're looking at shorten and recutting anyway.

    .243 bullets

    According to a PM from Jimmy, he's after TMK or ELD only. Anyone help him out?

    Sad news: Bradders.

    His final Facebook post (presumably by prior arrangement) was very much in character: He didn't see eye to eye with everyone; for myself, I considered him a friend and he'll be missed.

    77gn SMK, 80gn SMK, 77gn TMK or 75 ELD-M

    I only have a lowly “AR” straight-pull in .223Rem, Wylde chamber, so loaded to “AR mag” length. It has 1:8 twist barrel and I’ve been impressed with 77gr SMK, TMK, Scenar and Nosler Custom Comp. 73gr ELD-M not so good. 75gr A-max etc off the cards as can’t be loaded deep enough to mag-feed in an AR. 23.8-24.2gr N140, Varget, RS52 all worked well, with velocity and accuracy increasing in that order. 77SMK and Nosler CC virtually identical drop/drift. 77TMK marginally better on both counts and accuracy. Best groups of 5 are 0.2-0.3MOA (NB straight-pull!), typically/normally sub 0.5MOA. In my rifle, all three bullets shoot to same POI at 100m, so long as N140/Varget/RS52 are used in the charge range above. So easy! The only downside is the diminutive “splash” of missed shots when shooting steels. Since you are unconstrained by mag length (to an extent, so wider bullet choice) and have an AI version and longer barrel, you should have greater flexibility to tune a better long-range load; 900m is possible, ask Laurie!
