  1. 17H - 18, 20 or 22 inch barrel . . .

    Hi Spanner. The HW66 Jadg-Match is top of my list and I have the choice of 18, 20, or 22. How do you like yours ?
  2. . . .. advice on optimum length. It's going to a varmint gun not a stumpy truck gun
  3. Batch Testing Rimfire Ammunition at Eley, UK

    I believe you need to purchase 5,000 rounds though !
  4. British Shooting Show. Who's going?

    "Car parking is free at the NEC for the British Shooting Show" - straight off their website
  5. Has the .17 HMR had its day?

    I had a terrific HW 66 in .17HMR then suffered a fizz and a bullet stuck 4 inches up the barrel. I replaced all the numbered batch of ammunition with new and suffered the same twice. No split necks. I had it bore scoped and sold it as I lost trust in the calibre. Hornady ammunition. As Alekd, QC needs to be addressed BUT, this was FOUR years ago and (some people are finding) the situation persists. A shame as it was a great 175 yard vermin / 100 yard fox rifle and accuracy was always around 0.7 MOA. What is going to replace it ? 17WSM - try getting the ammunition, 17 Fireball - try getting the ammunition, 17 Rem - only 40gn factory ammunition I believe, 17 Hornet - just received my ticket for one.
  6. What's happened to these subs?

    Thank you 1066. Appreciated
  7. What's happened to these subs?

    I used (again) the new Eley 38gn subs, and the DO NOT group as well as the previous 40;s no matter what Eley claim. Eley Match are very accurate but more noisy. I have been advised Fiocchi - if I can get them, CCI's I find are inconsistent
  8. British Shooting Show. Who's going?

    Me. Saturday. Looks to be an interesting line up. At least their cash machines may work at this show !!!
  9. Sako 22 Hornet action and wood stock

    GBal. You are a veritable font of knowledge my friend. I fancy a classic Sako action for a .17 Hornet build. OR, buy a .22 Hornet HW66 Jagd-Match, and have it rebarrelled with a Sassen fluted barrel (indulgent) but faster than the 5 - 8 months Weihrauch are quoting for a factory .17H. Best Regards. David
  10. Sako 22 Hornet action and wood stock

    Thank you 17 Rem, my mistake. Sako action then . . .
  11. Sako 22 Hornet action and wood stock

  12. Delta Titanium

    David. Let us know what you think of it. Richard Utting rates them and I've been looking at the 4.5 - 30 x 56 for my Bergara too
  13. How do I amend a (my) sales post to read "Sold" in the original headline. Looks much neater and saves people time. Thank you
