  3. Calcium Carbide?

    Try looking in to caving supplies, old style acetylene generators used it as a long term light source for big trips. Still around but as a back up to batteries these days.
  4. Switch Barrel Rifles

    Not an AI user, so can't comment on the ease of swapping barrels. I've got a DTA and I run three barrels in it (260,308 & 338). The system, if used with a mind to consistency in the procedure, can give excellent results. I regularly take all three calibres to a range day. Once you've sorted the difference in poi for the different calibres using the same zero, it's just a matter of applying it. It gives me a choice of calibres, depending on what,why and where I'm shooting, all in one drag bag. Benefits Don't have to invest in 3 rifles. Don't have to learn 3 sets of triggers/optics etc Don't have 3 rifles to drag to the range Downside I now shoot 3 times as much ammo It's opened up all sorts of calibre options, with minimal investment, now I want them all!

  10. On sale elsewhere as well. Going as since buying the DTA, this just sulks in the cabinet. Round count 2-300 thru this barrel. Rebarreled about 5 years ago when I first bought it.

Questions and requests all welcome, but I do work random hours so it may take a few days to get back to you. Cheers.
  12. Update on New Mile Long Range

    It looks like a nice set up, given the weather, and I understand that it's all got to paid for BUT, and it's a big one. The costs, from my limited understanding, are prohibitively high. My understanding is, that if I shot once a month for a year on the longer range it would cost me £700 in range fees etc. Am I missing something? I don't know what is usually paid at the various ranges round the country, so I don't know if Gardeners is above average, but I pay £120 for a years access to a range with similar and longer distances once a month. If it's for you, fill your boots, the accommodation looks nice and as a business it has lots of potential. I hope it works for those that have put the time/money/graft into it.
