    Foxes. What do you do with them?

    How does it differ from one dying of natural causes under a hedge?
  2. Sporting services had them in stock.
  3. Thanks Baldie Please let me know when you get them in, I'll take 5 if I can so I have them spare for the future if I need them.
  4. Thanks, I'l try AI direct. Do you know when you might get some in Baldie? Are they just normal O rings or some heat resistant material ones?
  5. I have a .338 Accuracy International moderator and the o ring type seal juts on the inside has gone. Can these be simply pulled out and a new one pushed in, or does it need to be taken apart to fit a new one? Where can I get a new one from ?
  6. Dyfed Powys firearms office have now confirm to me that they will now confirm whether land has been cleared over the phone to certificate holders with a closed certificate.
  7. I'm not asking for them to clear it. I want to know if it has already been cleared I would have through a phone call would have sorted that. I was told today by Dyfed Powys that I have to send in a letter showing I have permission and a land clearance form. I explained that I was not asking for it to be cleared only enquiring if it already was and for what calibre . The lady said I need to send in the documents. I have followed it up with an email asking it that is their policy as I would have though a simple phone call would save both them and myself time and resources.
  8. How do you check with your local firearms department if land is cleared? Can one simply phone and they check on their database or does one have to do it in writing? I have my FAC now cleared for deer and AOLQ on land I have cleared and also on land cleared by the local chief police officer. If i am invited to shoot on other land how do I check it out, at short noitice.

    AI muzzle break (mod compatible)

    Thanks First time I did it I was concerned that I'd messed something up seeing how precise the barrel fits into the action.

    AI muzzle break (mod compatible)

    With my AXMC if I screw the break on until it stops turning the openings on the side are not horizontal. I have to back it up a little and then tighten the screw. Is that how it should be? Edit Just looking at the manuals after I posted this. The AXMC manual does not mention this but the AT308 does, say to back it off and tighten the screw.

    I just remove the mod, before coming off the range.

    AI sound mod.

    My AI mod on my AXMC has done well over 500 rounds in 338 and over a thousand in 308 and is still going strong.

    Scope Calibration

    If you do it with live fire it is not the scope you are checking, it is the scope, rifle, user, bullet, load combination. If you want to check if the scope is tracking properly then check just the scope. If that tracks properly then then add other variables

    Scope Calibration

    To check accurate vertical tracking get a tall target printed accurately with increment of known value, say 1cm. Place it at exactly 100m, measure with steel tape not range finder, and set the scope up on one point. Then dial scope and see if it moves to the correct position on the target. As with any experiment if you change more than on variable you are looking at more than one thing. If you use bullet placement you are looking at: Scope alignment on rifle Cant of scope on rifle Rife itself Shoot error load variation neck tension bullet variance etc You can do the same with left and right. Also for vertical tracking if you ensure that the line of the target is exactly vertical you can check that as well To test the scope, juts test the scope
