    Thermal Imaging - Whats any good please

    I'm pleased to say I met up with Clive Ward today and I've ordered one of his thermal rifle scopes. The scope I looked through today was very impressive compact and lightweight. Many thanks to Clive for his time and for tea!

    The first reason I haven't dropped in it clearly says on his website not to the second reason is that I'm very busy running seven companies successfully time is more important to me than money should I have a wasted trip to find no one there I would be me losing half a day.

    Reply to Clive ward i persanly have found it difficult to do business with you when I phone you I get an answer service and on the one account you have spoken to me I was convinced to purchase from you how ever my repeated attempts at inquiries as to when your thermal scopes will be available have never been answered! If I'm going to spend upwards of £4000 I want too discuss the deal not just ad to basket on a web site.

    New .243 load help

    Re your last post Kevgun if your using cases fire formed in another rifle be aware they are now formed to that chamber. just use new Lapue brass and be done with it It never pays to cut corners or cost on brass.

    I have not tried any other IR but the NM800 or though I will now look at this as an option.Scot country are showing a lazer that's £500 it's meant to be invisible!

    The ward site is still showing 10 days its been showing this for some time now perhaps he needs a new calendar !! I would still like to purchase a thermoscope although the lambs are grown up now and we have not lost one all season 😊 I've read the reviews and the scopes keep coming out top however I wonder what the customer service is like from nightvision store ?

    Tikka 260 T3x odd groupings

    Why not try several difrent factory loads as a way of first running in the barel and second to give you a constant as it were? It's what I do with every new rifle. some take a wile to run in.

    Plot-o-matic scoring strategy

    My experience of markers has been the private markers at Bisley that were available and payed a small amount more were very good. How ever they are no more I believe for as I understand for what ever reason. No one will convince me that a well trained conscientious well-paid human can be replaced by a electric system. i would be shooting Diggle this week end but circumstances wouldn't have allowed it,I hopefully will be at the next one. I wait to hear how well the scoring system performs and I'm always happy to be proven wrong if there's a positive out come.
  12. Hi if your shooting at Bisley take he 308 to the zero range using a zeroing card and that will get you on paper. From there you can adjust accordingly.

    George Balfour (gbal on this site)

    I've only just seen this its so sad that a man of this stature as such an even handed commentator and obvious gentleman should be struck down with such an awful condition. My profound hope that a miracle can happen and he can recover he has always been so eloquent in his posts.i have never had the pleasure of meeting him but my best wishes go out to his family and friends.

    Plot-o-matic scoring strategy

    Why do away with a marker and and a paper target? I just hate this we must use technology thing. One what happens when it's really raining I mean enough to still shoot but still really wet? Do they still work? Every time I've had experience of using electronic targets they have failed. Ok that's only four times but there's been an issue. why ow why can't we keep a skilled marker? Pay that person well for a job well done? will some please explain the so called advantage of this system Montey the Luddite

    I'm 57 didn't do my first one until I was 54 but I'm really aware this coming season of my mortality and brake ability as it were.its the only thing that I've got that generates loads of adrenaline so on balance I know I'm going to enjoy it but wind my neck in a bit this year! It has maid me much more sensible on the roads as ican push it in relative safety on the track.i run the front of inters or middle of fast group at Brands on both circuits but way off the pace of the race boys. Im hopefully doing another trip to Italy this summer that's a different type of riding but very rewarding after a long stint.

    My other passion is bikes I have my old 1200 bandit (Bob Farnem tuned ) winter bike My triumph Speed triple also tuned by Bob but that might be going as Ive never felt completely happy with it despite improvements. My 750 Gixer track bike still ridden on the road and my totally mad ZX10 2016 track bike tuned by MSS which is road legal still but only works on the road. May be we should have a UKV track day this summer?

    Has any one tried the latest offering from Pulsar the XP50 ? I have spoken to night vision uk but they are awaiting delivery of thier new model the web site seems to have a delivery date of 10 days permanently posted! I have foxs that I can't get on for as soon as I turn on the NM800 on top of my Drone they are gone very quickly.i want to try and then use a good thermal as we have lambs going out now and there's some big Wiley dog foxs around.

    Rabbits and .22

    It's been full on with the foxs and corvids this time of year and a big part of this is gathering fresh bait I'm shooting between 5 and 10 rabbits a night which until tonight has proven to be easy using my .22 Sako Finfire with Drone Pro.How ever tonight I found I was missing a lot then I relized Ide started a new box of Winchester 42g and some rounds were really loud! I.e. Fast Now many of us expect this from a box of CCI but not Winchester has any one else had the same problem? I changed to a box of 40g and was back on aim.

    Atlas bi pod

    I use the atlas a lot I love them just get used to pushing in to it or loading the pod and it's great. I also find it works well with my bog pod sticks . Having said that my mate hates them and only uses Harris one with the extra long legs this is all for Varminting use I will add. There are some cheap copies around Ide say stay clear of those unles it's for an air rifle.
