  1. Can this be right?

    Oh, and I too hardly ever use my PM2 below 8 power.
  2. Can this be right?

    I have a PM2 3-16x50 FFP P4F MRAD single turn. Had it new about 12 or 13 years ago. I also have an IOR Recon, had it about 12 months. I love the PM2, would buy another in a heart beat. Thought I'd give the IoR a go as everyone was raving over them. I like it, it's a good scope, but I don't like it as much as the PM2.
  3. rebarrel expectations

    Was this gunsmith in the Netherlands or one of your neighbouring countries? Curious.
  4. Don't forget location too!
  5. Carbon wrapped barrels

    I have a 26" Hardy on my 284Win 1:8 done by Mik at Dolphin. It's on a Sako 75 which Proof don't make blanks of the corrects tenon size for. Only had it a short while and haven't done enough load development yet to say if it's a good one or not. Pros, looks nice and is lovely and lightweight, cons, because it's light, which is what I wanted, noticeably more recoil than my 20" .308. I suppose you can't have your cake and eat it! Mik bought a number of barrels of Hardys when he got mine. He also stocks Proof. Best of luck in whatever you decide on.
  6. Bix\n Andy trigger sako 75

    What are they like Dan and how much do they cost? How do they compare with a Jewell on a R700 for instance? My 75 has the standard trigger.
  7. shehane or 284W

    1:8 for me.
  8. shehane or 284W

    Thanks Laurie, as always very informative and useful ATB Mike
  9. shehane or 284W

    Is the n165 still ok with a 26inch barrel? I would have thought as it's slower burning it'd be better suited to 30 inch barrels. Not that I've tried it. If it is ok then great as I have a tub I haven't opened. It'll be worth giving it a go. I feel I've still got a bit of load development to do with my new 284 as it hasn't been as tight as I was expecting yet.
  10. shehane or 284W

    No one else has said what bullets they are using for given velocities. Bullets and weighs please.
  11. shehane or 284W

    284W COAL 3.100 inches, 51.0 Grn RS60, 26 inch 1:8 twist Hardy barrel 2815 fps. That's with about 50 rounds through it. Using 162grn hornady eld-x .
  12. Rem700 SA PSS stock

    I have one. Genuine HS Precision PSS. I'll PM you
  13. Hornady ELD X no thump

    I've just got a 284 win with 26" barrel on a Sako 75 long action. It's chambered with a .318" neck rather than .312" standard so I don't have to neck turn. Mik Mak can take the credit for that, not me. I also had it throated for the 162 grain 7mm ELD-X. I'm running COAL of 3.1" & 2816 fps. I took my first two deer on Saturday morning a muntjac buck and a roe buck. The munty was only 50 metres away, the Roe buck over 100 but under 200. Both had good exit wounds, plenty of evidence of bullet expansion and a noticable thud on impact. I know I've only taken two animals so far but I thoughtdI'd share my experiences with you.
  14. IOR Crusader problem

    If your spending that much on a good scope surely you can stretch a little more for a 20 MOA picatinny rail or 20 MOA rings. Why would you want to compromise?
  15. Try phoning, Meeks F & Co, 197 Warstone Lane, Birmingham Jewellery Quarters. Google him. I'd be surprised if he couldn't help you. Regards Mike
