  1. Unusually I watched country file last night It had a piece on Lincolnshire police refusing to renew FAC or shotgun certificates if there is no GP medical report . There was an interview with a medical person who stated that prescription drugs prescribed for asthma may be a reason for refusal or diabetes once diagnosed could also be a reason for refusal . To get the full picture of the piece it would be worth watching on iPlayer An interview with the countryside alliance representative didn't seem to give any advice on what to do if there was a refusal or if one was dealing with an anti-shooting GP ! Their advice was not to pay for the GP report at least that's my tacke on the piece. I for one did not realise that treatments for quite common conditions especially in the older age group may be grounds for refusal !!
  2. BBC Country file certificate renewal

    As stated this is a guid line not red line legislation but I imagine it would be difficult for an individual without the backing of the NRA or BASC to confront and win against their local police force .
  3. BBC Country file certificate renewal

    I did mention I hardly ever watch country file for the same reasons they are very biased against shooting and country sports. What caused the concern to me that the police statements and the senior medical practitioner statements on the program . It would've been good to have had a representative of the NRA or BASC on the programme but that wouldn't suit the BBC left-wing agenda. Has anyone on here actually had experience of being a refused license because of the GP not returning the form as this is a guidance document published by the Home Office not redline legislation.
  4. Drone pro 10x vs Pulsar N355

    I've have two Drones the first with the 10x ad on and the proper 10x mark 2 as it were with the extra day light filter. They are superb at night and in day light out to a proper 300 yards. Having a good day time image is really inportant as it makes zeroing the scopes really easy. My mates have photons NS 850 and thermal none of them are easy to set up like the Drones. I have one on my RPA 243 and the older one gets swapped around this is made easy as they are so easy to zero. ive had two issues on the older one Carl sorted it over the phone and the second one on the new one it went back it was turned round in a week.Ive added the NM800 the only down side is Charly does pick up on the ir some times but 200 to 300yards with a 95g Nosler does the job.The other thing is at last light or first light they out permform the very best scopes.In moon light you also don't need the ir. if you can buy one you won't regret it.
  5. To neck turn or not to neck turn

    Many thanks for all the excellent advice given on the subject and the extra that I taged on as it were. im booking a reloading cours in the new year despite reloading for several years I don't know enough to get the best by F class rifles so it will be time well spent . Happy new year to one and all Montey
  6. To neck turn or not to neck turn

    Yes I've gone all comp spec so will follow on the same I imagine
  7. To neck turn or not to neck turn

    Ok thanks its a phone call to Spud in the new year then with an order for the full length die as well.
  8. To neck turn or not to neck turn

    Not wishing to hi jack the ops thread but am I given to understand neck sizing only is a waste of time and money? If you don't neck turn? ive all ways ful resized but having just bought my first 300wsm for F class comps I've bought a neck sizing die. should I have gone for the full resizing die?
  9. Reloading course

    Rusel Simon's runs a course and really knows his stuff he taught the reloading on the F class course run by the league. i figure if your good enough to win a world championship and be as consistent as he is you know your stuff! just google his name and his sight comes up I'm hoping to do one my self next year. ive used spuds youtube posts and they are easy to follow and well done.
  10. I hear time and time again shooters saying my clay shooting/game shooting is off because I've been rifle shooting a lot.Persanaly I don't find a problem to me it's like saying I can't ride my track bike because I've been driving my track car! The way you use either is so difrent for me but I wonder how others feel?
  11. I use wipe out in all my rifles built by dolphins and it's great but in my 243 rpa and 204 with a ruger barel it caused a big opening of my groups so I use kg in those two.Re 308 I read a lot of top shooters in the USA not cleanig until a 100 rounds I've left it to 80 in my FTR rifle with no drop off group size.How ever that's after the barel was run in.
  12. I keep a cleaning page by the cabin ie 223 wipe out 12-11-2017 no shots fired 243 24 shots not cleaned spot on 12-11-2017 then I keep a note book of elevation for factory and home loads for some Calibers on my stalking /varminting rifles I keep a note on the scope cover of elevations I will now start a more detailed book for target shooting this has inspired me.
  13. FCSA Update

    I've had this email and found the link posted in it won't work any body else had the same problem? i will donate this week and as put forward I've joined my local Conservative party with a view to visit my local MP to put our case. i know one doesn't have to join a party to visit your MP but Experience has shown that this is the way forward.

  19. Varminting in Australia

    Good to see some varminting on here again thanks for posting
  20. How Clean is clean??

    It's truly a case of what works for which barel my two 308s 223 2-250 ( Dolphin) and my .17 Hmr work well with wipe out or KG products.My 243 and 204 go all over the place with Wipe out but shoot well with KG cleaners.
  21. Just read my emails and spoted this from the NRA re possible ban What next no straight pulls ? I'm going to take time to wright to my MP and ask his view perhaps I can in lighten him. Also going to join the local Consetive association what better way to speak directly re our sport.
  22. Drone Pro 15x Questions

    I run one on my 243 win had a problem but was all reworked by Carl now works perfectly that ones a later 10x I've also got the earlier one. As people have said ask Carl he realy is good to deal with.
  23. I've shot more gongs than I can count having my own 200yard range and loads of permissions means I shoot a lot of steel !! I buy my targets from B H targets ( Tey are on this site ) they come with a blue paint which I spray with lining paint that comes in difrent Colours I use red it drys realy quick and never flakes. Off out today to make the most of a permission that's just been cut so I can test the drop on my 243 using a Drone pro out to 300yards.
