    RPA rifles

    I had an interceptor in 243 it had one of the last boreder barel I sold it on on here and can honestly say I wish I hadn't as it was just so accurate. I sold it as I had a lighter custom dolphin rifle built but despite the dolphin rifle being really good and just as accurate and shooting exactly the same load using the 95g nosler tip with Vit550 and lap brass i some how mis that RPA !!

    If there's a lamp there's got to be a shadow basic Physics I gues light cant travel through a fox 🙃

    No I deer Please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you don't shoot using nightvision ? Casting my mind back to the days of lamping I do understand what you mean you do then get a shadow and that shadow appears different. On stubble I've now come to the conclusion it's two different factors factor one factory ammo factor two the new lightweight walk and stalk 223 rifle sits on top of the yolk of my bog pod sticks i've just ordered a pig saddle set up from Scott country as the stock of the new rifle will sit well Using this set up I'm hoping .

    I've got a custom 204 Howa action Roger barel and stock fitted by RPA I simply won't recommend it over my pair of 223 the 233 has more off the shelf Ammo available is dead easy to reload for and in my personal experience kills foxes a lot better than the 204 I know there's going to be people on here that's going to argue with this but I'm just putting forward my personal experience. I really like the 204 as a go to for the long-range rabbit rifle 32 g bullets easy for 300 yards Bunnys.

    A brief update after using another box of bullets I can confirm that rifle and scope hadn't lost zero and at 200 yards off sticks I was very happy with the performance of My set up been out tonight two shots two dead Charlie's both were just over 100 yards. Definitely put this one down to factory ammo when I've got time I'll have to come up with a load.

    First thanks for all the advice i got out at the end of the day the new light rifle in 223 I'm using is shooting high off sticks. I set it up using my bench then tweaked it using a heavy bag on the bonet of my Land Rover The first fox i used it on was just over 200 yards and it dropped on the spot I then missed one on another piece of ground later that night because I overestimated the range and shot over the top of it. All a bit of a beginners mistake really should know better should've shot off the sticks first on the target before missing two and educating them. Yes Bob I'm using the thermal scope on the new rifle I can honestly say I didn't miss a fox when I had it on the heavy 223 and shot from a vehicle. I'm used to shooting off sticks with my 22 rim fire through to my 308 stalker but I've not seen a change in zero like this before! Although i used the same box of bullets all 53g Hornaday I'm going to run the next box over the Mag Neto it's from the same batch. Also considering using a small bag in the V of the sticks to absorb recoil obviously going to be a learning experience this. I will let you know how I get on as it might help others in the future. Just need the rain to stop.

    Well we all like to post when it goes well tonight it certainly didn't I missed two easy shots and two foxes both of which I had been asked to account for by a neighbour who keeps free range chickens and then on my return home after texting the neighbour my poor performance I realise that I've lost my mobile phone ! Just thought I'd share I'm determined to learn by my mistakes.

    Ultrasonic cleaners - recommendations

    I bought my ultrasonic cleaner from barber DTS of Sheffield if you look at the models the really big strong industrial ones are the same as one of the badged RCBS I believe but for less money . I'm always intrigued when people say that the cases are to clean on the inside of the necks given that I find very often the most accurate load in a calibre can be with new brass this seems counterintuitive please do comment .

    Sad news: Bradders.

    I only met Mark once but he was shooting and it was impressive. i didn't always agree with him but I liked the way he cut through the BS and stuck to his own view on here. RIP Mark

    Fuchs fox lure

    I'm hoping for no rain tonight I've got two one on our farm the other on a neighbouring farm both are very sharp so no closer than I have to and I hope the wind stays as it is and I need cloud cover the moon is so bright at the moment. I'll be using some nice juicy chicken they should smell that a mile away👍

    Fuchs fox lure

    Well just settling in after one more tonight came out on the bait site by the Farm house within ten minutes of me baiting it! it was a vixen but one of two as Ide seen another one in the thermal from the house .that was much bigger. Waited but no luck so took a drive on to next doors Farm but I saw two with out getting on them, it's tricky because of the lay out with the banks and fences. intrested that you don't like windy nights Bob I love them get down wind and I can stalk up and close. Just suits our bit of country I suppose.

    Fuchs fox lure

    Just got in after dropping three tonight good advice from Bob I would add go to the super market and get some cheap frozen chicken I pay £6 for a bag let it sit until it stinks and use that as a lure works every time for me no calling just that or a fresh rabbit or pigen but ad dog biskets scattered to keep them in the rite place. i was out with the 223 and thermal scope that scope is a game changer!
