    Firearms Interview on Tuesday

    It's quite simple a piece of ground has to be cleared for each calibar (in Kent any way) to give you an idea I have a piece of ground that I own away from the main farm it is just over 4 acres however it has a footpath at the top road at the bottom and both sides neighbours ground and houses. When I first put in for my 22 many many years ago I asked for a FAC spec air rifle specifically for this piece of ground and was given it straight away and congratulated on my awareness of the risk and unsuitability of this piece of ground for a 22. I hope this helps
  2. Well that throws a even worse light on it talk about putting the fox in charge of the hen house. we need a petition to get him sacked he is a public servant

    Jewell Trigger Cleaning

    Plus one for lighter fluid used it on all my rifles never a problem it was recommended to me by Mick
  4. I just watched Fild sports Britain they have some enlightened statements from The countryside alliance as well as Charly the main presenter. Starlings were put on the red list some years ago which meant that as fruit farmers we had to apply for a license it became tighter and more difficult as time went by it was a bit of a lottery on who you are dealing with from NE.
  5. I've just tried to sign the petition but I'm outside of the UK at the moment I don't expect the BBC to listen after all he is Mr OBE now!! I will sign it's when I'm back in the UK next week. I've just looked on the countryside alliance website and it does give more information than BASC I will be contacting my MP who was very good over the 50 cal ban and look for his support. I will also be contacting my local NFU rep and express my hope that they will actually get off their backsides and get behind farming community this is not just the shooting matter.
  6. Just read the BASC response it seems very weak I have not bothered with the country side Alliance since they lost the hunting ban. There needs to be a proper coordinated response to this including the NFU if they're not too busy selling insurance They raised £36,000 from crowdfunding the farming industry combined with supporters of the countryside and our way of life should be able to take this to court and have our own judicial review. The gap between the Walt Disney watching citydwellers and some in the country to those of us who can honestly say we lived for generations in the country is growing wider by the year.

    Foxes everywhere today!!!

    We are leaving them alone this time of year un less we know it's a dog fox for certain or a vixen taking lambs and we then want to know we're the earth is if possible. we also have two shoots one is fully keepered and on that shoot we haven't stopped but we recon to know every earth on the shoot or we're to look for the earths. two points the keepers been told no one can dig an earth now with dogs ? the other point this estate was arginally set up by a rich hunting family and the keeper wasn't allowed to control foxs part of the year as the hunting was more important. Some times things should be left alone!

    Velocity plateaus in load testing: Why?

    No conclusion then just gone silly

    Velocity plateaus in load testing: Why?

    As a foot note this is a fascinating thread

    Velocity plateaus in load testing: Why?

    I bought this method up on another thread I've tried it on my 243 only to find it matched the same load I already developed using OCW be interesting to see if any one else try's reverse engineering analready accurate load using this method. Now I'm going to try it with my 308 stalking rifle the challenges I need the perfect cold ball load. I will also be using it with the new 300wsm open rifle were im looking for many more shots obviously,I will then use OCW to check the results.
  11. As your loading for varminting the cold bore shot is nearly always the most important one so my advice is to focus on that after you've sorted the rest as previously described.

    Statistical Ghosts and Seeing Patterns

    Ok here's my take on it if you have a load that really works i.e. 308 out to 1000yards and you reached that load by ocw why not cross check a new technique by trying that technique and seeing if you arrive at the same load that's what I did. I looked for the flat spot in the velocity curve and found I was on the same load powder wise as my established load already had.
  13. I have six rifles built by Mick all on or before time and I'm really happy with all of them fantastic cominication and a consistently high standard of service ive had less than happy experiences with two other custom rifle builders.
  14. Your find any competitive FTR 308 should produce a single ragged hole at 100yards with a well produced home load 5 shot group after two sighters what maters is what velocity to wait of bullet to be competing at a thousand yards plus constant velocity I only use the 100 yards as a starting point. see Six Point Five Guys ten shot ladder testing on you tube for load development I've been running proven loads in different callibers and found I've arrived at the same powder wait. Also I've used this method on a new rifle and I'm very pleased with the results. Also a new powder bullet in my stalking 308 again looking promising.

    Lamping scope

    S&B pm11 56 is the best I've ever had but a sightron comes close and much cheaper
