  1. Looks like one I saw on the rack at Sporting Targets a while back. 308 right enough.
  2. Building the 'Long Dog'

    Oh I don't know, it does it for me. I guess its an engineers thing. Walnut stocks are sooo 1950's....

  6. 6.5mm varmint bullet choice

    got a mate dropping things with 120 ELD Match. very effective
  7. Scope Calibration

    Of course it isn't. Calibration is the act of empirically assessing the ACTUAL click value. It includes any effects of deficiencies in the theory arising from currently 'unknown unknowns'. That is one reason why theory and practice diverge.
  8. Gun Crime on the UP

    Conspiracy theories are always fun but this is just a performance indicator to save them doing unnecessary analysis if there isn't a problem. Easy to see someone a long time ago deciding that it would be good to measure gun crime statistics. Once they start to measure something then they are very reluctant to change the definition as you lose the validity of the trend. So they stick with it even if it doesn't quite measure the precise issue, but it will attract attention if there is a big shift and then get some more analysis. It is pretty obvious from there pronouncements that the Home Office understands the issue is with illegally imported guns. So looks to me like the crude metric told them something was happening and they went away did some analysis and got to the root cause. What's the problem with that.
  9. Aimpoint 30mm pic rail ring

    Anyone got one sitting around in the cupboard ??
  10. Wanted 243 dies

    Looking for some secondhand decent quality dies pls...
  11. Scope Calibration

    and if you are going to great lengths to test our scopes to ensure there isn't a disastrous 2% error what are you doing to test your ballistic app to ensure its output is equally valid ???? i get the point and i do it too but this game is a chain. if the scope is accurate to 0.001%, your rifle shoots 0.001moa your runout is 0.25 thou but your app data is pish your results will be, well, equally pish and really the only way you are going to be sure your 9.5 mil is reliable at 1500m is if you have dope to there or beyond. So to get a complete solution we end up shooting groups at range. At least in the UKD world. Can't avoid the shooter... like reloading, there are diminishing returns. gbal's point really, worth it if the result requires it. still, I enjoy reading the results so please keep us informed. I think Lowlight uses a scope testing rig like the one described above to test students scopes on his classes. On the basis of those tests Kahles are a bargain, if they float yer boat
  12. Lyman Gen 6 - views from a loading bench!

    Well that'll be me then. Like you I have come and gone on the idea. Was warming up to it again as my TargetMaster went south, never convinced about the build quality of that either really. Then I read an incidental comment from Laurie about shooting in the order you load to limit any effects of the scales drift. Hmmm.
  13. Bullet pointing

    some sierra's come pointed...
  14. BBC Country file certificate renewal

    All that may be true, but you may have to resort to the law to enforce your 'rights'. Plod from Lincolnshire (?) was on t'box contradicting what you are saying. Currently there no note from the doc and they will not grant/renew. Feel free to sue...
  15. BBC Country file certificate renewal

    Yes, i was a bit surprised at that, I thought this was about mental health. Unintented consequences and/or doctors building their part (GOD ++) ? Have there been any incidents that have arisen because someone had too many puffs on their inhaler ?? I was not impressed by the Countryside Alliance guy (yet again, but I am biased ever since the CA tried to throw us shooters under the bus to save Fox Hunting - pretty clear in my twisted head that it is just a front for the 'unspeakable'), refuse to provide a medical cert and the Police will just decline to grant/renew and it's your own fault. Who does that benefit ?? Should have had BASC on....
  16. Powder for 243 107gr SMK

    Some advice pls. I am about to put a 28" 243 barrel on my AX for fun 'target'. Never reloaded for this calibre before so I am not sure what are the 'best' powders. The usual US sites may not be too helpful as they seem to suggest H1000 H4350 for the 107gr bullet, but given import restrictions etc they may not be a wise choice. What are the go to powders for this combination ?
  17. Powder for 243 107gr SMK

    Thanks Laurie. Appreciated
  18. That's no help. "IF the user wishes..."
  19. NSX or Schidt & Bender

    Jonathan I have a NXS 5.5-22x56 MOAR which I had been thinking about moving on if that is of any interest. No zero stop. I got the MOAR to use both on the range and hunting. Personal thing really, but it seemed to be a bit more flexible in terms of dialing and/or holding Drop me a PM if you like Andy
  20. this has raged on and on (ad nauseam frankly) for years on other sites. Apocryphal stories of manufacturers posting break in processes on their websites 'cos people wanted one and kept phoning up interrupting fee paying work. Just sayin' Like other religion's, do what you want just don't try to covert me
  21. Upgrade Accuracy International AT

    AX and AX AICS not the same thing
  22. which calibre do you most enjoy shooting?

    470 Nitro Express The 12" flame ....
  23. can anyone help

    the benefit of the RL17 powder is high mv on heavy bullets so you get the benefit of their high bc (if chosen carefully) without the historic norms of lower mv. albeit at the cost of some temp sensitivity. imo 168 is not heavy enough. find some modern high bc bullets 175gr - 185gr ish. Berger hybrids or Juggernaughts are one (rather expensive, but very good) option. Avoid Sierra 168gr Matchking at all costs if you are planning on running them out towards 1000.
  24. can anyone help

    Ah. Ok. I have used RL17 a lot in 308. It works best with the heavy bullets i.e. 180gr and up. For 165gr and down its not really ideal, better with the Varget, Rl15, N140 type powders. Sounds like RS50 is more in line with that group ? So I would suggest you either go to heavier bullets and get the benefits of high mv's. Or change to a slower burning powder.
