    Precision Rifle League Officially Launched

    Looks interesting but we're are the venues please? I'm very interested as long as it doesn't clash with any F class league shoots.

    Morlander it's my only comment I've got better things to do with my time like killing tree rats in the day time and fluffy cuddly foxs at night and not being brain washed by Walt Disney. no more comment to make

    Can the moderators not put a stop to this thread it's painfully obvious it's been started by a non shooter. ive seen threads stoped on here before so come on chaps do your job. or have things got to get too such a point of of outrageously out of control as and when some one has had enough of the bunny huger. This is ukvarminting PC after all.

    I've got two thermals ones a 38s and the other is the new one from night vision uk I'm finding a big difference as technology has moved on. its od how some nights water vapour in the air effects thermals or night vision using an IR. which thermal were you using?

    Just been out tonight I took the thermal and a night master torch it's foggy I've only walked round and re baited two bait sites on our farm, loads of bounce back as it were with a torch and I know the same if used an ir torch with night vision.. With the thermal I could still spot rabbits and the od brock it's good just to go out with a thermal and spot the wild life on a clear night.
  7. I totally agree it's more of a challenge using a lamp but we're not always out just because we want to it started with my mates farmer he works for losing 25 plus lambs and having to move sheep off a large acreage of marsh a few years back.Now we keep on top of a large acreage for farmers and a couple of shoots.it now looks like we are going down the being paid for it root which will mean operating in town and country.
  8. That's what thermals are for, there's been times when I've seen people out on land were they weren't meant to be only because I had a thermal spotter. Travellers are using night vision round here so if we're out with a light they know we're there but we won't see them which could again prove interesting! .which scope did you have a look through bud? There's a world of difference in scopes and spotters. Some NV I've seen Ide rather use a lamp. Me and my three mates were saying that next year on the stubble we will have a night out old school with lamp and rifle. Bet we still take a thermal spotter or two with us though!
  9. A few have said that to me until they came out for a look round your always welcome if your coming to Kent bud.
  10. When you going to come over to the night vision side bud ?

    Once. you start using quality night vision it's hard to go back to the lamp that's for sure

    Apologies it's been a long night and a blank one at that so again in English No manual focus the same as the mk 2 Drone with a ficus nob on the top of the scope

    Day time on the drone as you know it's best to fit the coloured filter for the best picture there's none of that with the Digcepter and in my opinion the picture at night and day is less grainy and of a better quality. The standard mount on the Drone has never proved to be able to hold the same zero when I've removed the scope and put it back on the same rifle it's always taken a slight adjustment to realign zero. The mounting construction on the Digcepter is very well engineered and having removed it from the rifle and remouted it it's held zero. The mounting system allows you to adjust elevation and windage by tweaking the Allen bolts under the main mount when bore sighting also ( and I'm not totally sure of this ) but the reticle seems adjustable to finer degree. I still won't part with my two Drones as they have proved very good in the past and I've still got the 10x one on my 22-250. There's no way I'm knocking any model of Drone i've got a queue of people to buy mine and that in its self shows how good they still are to my mind.

    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!
  16. 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
  17. I've got a reply from my MP whoe is supporting the amendments to the 50 cal part of the bill.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
