    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

    Thermal scope

    I totally agree Ide take a Drone over the Archer but some still won't use any thing else it's what you get use too using I suppose.

    Thermal scope

    Bob your all ways welcome to come and have a look through mine Gen3 I don't have any experience of only the top grade Archer that fits on the back of the scope and still needs a lazer or RI. Dose Gen 3 require either a lazer or RI? i have the Digcepter and that gives a perfect picture out to well past 300yards weather permitting. The thermal spotter makes quarry spotting and identification easy.

    Thermal scope

    I've been using the a thermal scope from Night Vision .co.uk in Kent. It's proved to be a total game changer I've used the Drone mk1 and mk2 since they've been available but the thermal scope means I'm not shooting at the range every shot taken within 200 yards and 90% are just over 100 I've had the scope fitted to my 223 as I don't feel the need for a bigger calibre because of the short ranges I'm shooting at. I am using a thermal spotter from the same company which means im able to identify my quarry I simply can't fault the two thermal systems.Is there any down sides.if so I haven't found them yet! Once the scope is set up correctly for your personal use it's the best night vision I've seen and totally covert.

    New to firearms, have a question.

    If your new to fox control or not I strongly recommend reading A Foxers Year by Patrick Hook it has become the foxers bible as it were for any one. Other good reads are Foxing with lamp and rifle by Robert Bucknell and A Foxing Life by Mike Powell Ide been Foxing for years and found these books both insightful and interesting reads.

    bolt action .224 Valkyrie

    I'm following this with great interest as it's ala well and good reading about a new calibre that's meant to be a big improvement but I feel like I can trust what Dave has too say regarding real world performance walts and all. Thats a stunning rifle

    Fox saw my ir

    Yep that's what we recon got one permission we're the farmer lets one of his tenants keep chickens so it's a fox magnet the problem is the guy is out with his torch and his dogs or gun he gets a few but misses a few they get really jumpy on that bit it's were I shot the dog fox last night. Pleanty get missed with night vision as well I'm not knocking lamping truth too tell I miss it.

    Fox saw my ir

    It's becoming a lot more apparent these last couple of years that they pick up on the ir my answer is the thermal scope from Night vision store uk it's a game changer! i was out last night showing a friend whose bought a cheap bit of kit and was disappointed in what it could do pulled up and scand the first field of sheep only to see a fox 90yards away laying down we were lucky as I pulled up making lots of noise he just lay ther I put the 223 with the thermal scope on the bonnet he was looking at us but just not bothered and that was it one shot a very dead Charly. i had the Digcepter scope out on the 22-250 and at that range the ir might just have spooked him.Thats the third fox this week with the thermal scope not one of them took any notice of me all under 140 yards.

    That Spud 1967 bloke .......

    Spud and his staff are very helpful and professional wish every one I deal with worked to the same standard. Having retail out lets of my own I'm super critical some would say harsh even but Ive been really impressed by Spud and his team.
  13. I use Bog Pod sticks they are a trypod design I'm on my second set as my old ones the clips slowly broke one by one so I fixed it into one position and use it standing or seated as the legs splayed right out .My family bought me a new sett for Christmas and these ar all black heavy duty version absolutely brilliant the down side is the price! ive tried both the mk1and mk2 trigger sticks and thier rubbish in my Opinion the first ones flex to muchand I only any use for my .22 The second ones are stiffer still don't work for me I can't get on with them ithink I will be eBaying both.

    Worth a read...........

    Vote Corbin and sell your fire arms quick as private gun ownership will be targeted based on his supporters views. At least the Greens (the leftist of the lefts) have said as much. if cominisom or Karl Marks doctrine works so well why have China Russia and every other country that went that way given up on it? Corbin and McDonald claim to be socialist as that's more acceptable. Corbin is a firm leaver just look at what he's done or hasn't done.
