    Ronin, You have become a dab hand with that carbon. I agree with Edi the ejection cutout is a lovely touch.

    I played with Tin Star and 175gr Sierra Matchkings through a 18” barrel. Remember to check the bullets stabilise without the mod on. Work high to low.

    What do you need the sling for? I am going to hazard a guess that it will be for carrying the rifle and not a control aid for shooting off hand. As such I can recommend the ProHunter sling from practical precision. It creates a very stable carrying position. https://www.practicalprecisionuk.com/product-page/pro-hunter-sling
  4. It was £60. Not cheap I admit. But when loaded in my eberlestock it is far nicer to carry than a hard box that bounces the rounds about.

    What length barrel are you using? a friend has 20” AT he has asked me to help load for. I have N150 and 175gr Sierra match kings but think a 155gr might be better from the shorter barrel.
  6. Following on from the topic I posted a couple of weeks ago I have picked up a 50 case. Its made in the U.K. local to me in Derbyshire and available at Livens in Burton as the chap who makes them is often out of the country. I picked up some Sellior and Bellot 140gr 6.5 Creedmoor to try. At £20 for 20 rounds it’s pretty cheap and will hopefully be handy to have to fall back on if it shoots. I will report back later in the week after I get to the range. I will put it over the chrono as well.

    Ouch that is a lot of money for a reticle. Even as you say that’s for the license fee to fin Accuracy. if you went for a Schmidt reticle like the P4 fine I’m sure it would be cheaper.

    Does this scope exist???

    Top man Terry I will explore this option along with the Mark 5. I didn’t realise they were so light weight.

    Not Secure - ukvarminting

    The warning is popping up on apple devices after recent updates. As already explained it is safe.

    Nice scope but it’s just as heavy as the ultra short and longer.

    Does this scope exist???

    I have seen the March scopes and was edging towards them. I think the SFP will suit me best with one of the centre dot reticles. I would really like to get hands on one of the 2.5-25X42 to see just how dark they are at full mag. As it would only be used during daylight on targets at full power I might just get away with it. Thanks for the offer Gary but the 4-16X50 isn’t quite what I’m looking for. I am currently using a Horus Tremor 2 reticle. Below 15 mag the floating centre dot isn’t large enough to see for me to use as a precise point of aim and the reticle looks more like a duplex. The illumination is very low. I have recently discovered that a brighter illumination module is available that may assist with the point of aim.

    6.5 Creedmore

    I haven’t seen Russ in here for ages. Is he still shooting?

    6.5 Creedmore

    Is the .260 shot out? If not, get the idea out of your head. The issue with .260 is the restricted OAL when running 140gr bullets. Run 123gr bullets and chop the existing barrel. The .260 runs more powder than the 6.5 Creedmoor. As such will give good velocity.

    Does this scope exist???

    I am currently running a Schmidt and Bender PM11 ultra short 5-20X50. The official weight is 830g. It feels far heavier when mounted. It’s like rotational on bike wheels. I am running it on a lightweight rifle and it feels out of place. The rifle is used for deer stalking, fox control and range shooting. As such I am looking for a replacement. I am open to first focal plane or second focal plane. However It is an old argument that will be played out until the end of time; FFP v SFP. I can only see the reticle hash marks on full mag with FFP so don’t see the advantage of known reticle holdovers at lower mag. Therefore FFP isn’t a necessity for me My must have features are 700g or there abouts, dialable turrets and a mag range with a minimum of 15. The real issue is that I want a floating centre dot in the reticle.
