    Drone pro

    I've got two Drones the mark one with the 10x doubler and the mark two both are very good and to my mind where the market leaders. However as we all know Drones appear to be no more. I bought a Digcepter A couple of weeks ago from Clive Ward at Night vision store I have fitted it to my Dolphin 223 for ease of set up and testing . I can say that without a shadow of doubt that it is superior to the drone in build quality and battery life Mine comes with the optional range finder and having used it in daylight and extensively at night I found performance to actually exceed the drone. I shoot with some good friends some of whom have other various nightvision scopes the drone always was easier to set up and out performed the various combinations. In my view the Digcepter now set standards!
  2. I've got a one les Charly on mine but I don't think he's still making them which is a real shame as it's the best mod I have
  3. I've got a reply from my MP whoe is supporting the amendments to the 50 cal part of the bill.
  4. I've just finished emailing my local MP who is a Conservative and ex-military and I have had the pleasure of meeting in the past. This is regarding the 50 calibre ban and the amendment put forward by Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown I do urge everyone in the shooting community to take five minutes to do exactly the same if this is what it's like under a conservative government I dread to think what it would be like if Corbin with all his supporters get in. Conservative government
  5. Just signed it Given I've just had an email from NRA asking me to lobby my MP again regarding 50 cal and I was under the impression that that had been sorted out I see no harm in signing this petition it took me very little time very easy to do and if we don't start standing together this will be the thin end of the wedge
  6. Thanks for the invite I will take you up on that offer but I doubt I can before the next league shoot hope to see you there.
  7. In replying to Onehole the 243win is a wildcat cartridge and there for ideal for fox I used 95g noslers with night vision out to 300yards to good effect in my 243 RPA I originally had the calibre of the target round with a long-term strategy of adding it to dear but as I progressed to an open ticket I then started to use it alongside my 22-250 and 223 it became the go to Fox round as I've never had a runner even out 300 yards. Might be worth your friend joining BASC and getting them to argue the case as it should be a restriction due to safety grounds not overkill. I didn't have a large a acreage then hence target then dear
  8. I wasn't aware of the exact proposal thanks for clarification It would be hard to argue against I gues given that no one can lawfully reload a round they aren't legally able to have. The other piece of legislation seemed to require an FAC to buy and hold shot gun shells at least that's the way it was reported which would be ludicrous
  9. I've just watched Field sports Britain this weeks edition on YouTube on the news there was a piece on three female MPs who wanted to bring in a ban on air rifles for under 18 year olds this I knew had happened what I didn't know was as part of this out rage and attack on the shooting community There were also proposals to restrict home loading. Seems some people in parliament are trying to bring restrictions on a law-abiding shooting community without consulting stakeholders or looking for evidence lead proposals.
  10. I'm going to be testing booth powders side by side so I've got the same conditions I said Ide post my results with the RS 70 but i cant recommend it. Good to meet up with you at Bisly look forward to shooting with you again.
  11. Hi what for it's worth I've just spent the week at Bisley shooting my 300wsm 215 Bergers with 65g of RS70 I found in testing that ambient temperature or barrel temperature was making a big difference this was born out over the week with in different elevation.My best score of 74 out of 75 was a steady rhythm of shooting keeping the barrel at a constant temperature,The colder The barrel the higher the elevation the hotter the barrel the lower the elevation. I will now be trying vit165 and RS 62 this after some great help and advice from people much cleverer than me. Montey

    Very interesting following this with interest but I can't see how you can better a 4-5 diffrance! im finding barrel temperature a major factor in my 300wsm using RS70 I'm getting one large hole at 100 yards from my load but difrent test results due to hot,worm or cold barrel temperature effecting speed but not group size at that range. Any thing that may help lower ES would be of great interest. just loaded 350 rounds ready for the week at Bisley in the hope I've got a good load I'll find out Monday!
  13. I've just watched a very sensible documentary on the iplayer on stalking in the high lands!

    looking for help

    Hi have you tried using a chrono to measure any change in speed between groups?you might find the barely are retaining heat especially with the hot weather we've had of late. what loads are you using?
