  1. If it's during office hours and you have the full address, and owner details of the land you are invited to shoot on (or O/S grid references etc ) , then a 'phone call to your local licensing office should provide you with details of what calibre the land is cleared to. If it's really short notice and over a weekend then you're out of luck ! Licensing 'round here are very approachable and are happy to take 'phone calls such as this.....can't speak for your's of course but give them a call. Regards, Rob.

    Load for 6mmBR

    Thanks for the replies guys. I've had look at Accurate Shooter and 6mmBR's posted loads......was hoping someone had a pet load with Vit 135/140 as i've got loads of that as the 22BR loves N135 ! Regards, Rob.

    Load for 6mmBR

    Hi All, I'm having a 6mmBR built with the intention of shooting 95-105grn bullets (foxing,small deer and plinking/gongs). Rifle is a single shot Stiller Diamondback action, with 22", 1in8 twist Walther Lowthar barrel. I have a stock of 95grn Sierra TMK's and was thinking of these as a starting point. Anyone using a similar combination and can give me a rough starting point ? Or its out with the manuals and I'll start load development from scratch..... Thanks in anticipation, Rob.

    Ward 800 NV add on...as a spotter ??

    Thanks for the replies and pm's guys. Looks like i'll have to have a bit of a re-think and maybe raid the piggy bank a bit further ! Regards, Rob.

    Ward 800 NV add on...as a spotter ??

    Hi....i'd thought about the IR issue and thought about 2 Ir's....one fixed to the rifle and one to use "hand held".....cheaper than a spotter and an Nv scope. Just wondered what kind of distance you'd pick up eye shine........don't have too much trouble picking up eye shine with the lamp and MK1 eyeball at 500+yds but someone is educating the local foxes and think it's time for NV. Regards, Rob.
  7. Hi all, I'm considering the purchase of the above, and as the question in the title, does anyone use it as a spotter and then fit to the rifle before taking a shot or does everyone leave them on their rifle? I like the idea of using one as a spotter and then fitting to the rifle, but was curious as to the capabilities as a spotter ? Regards, Rob.

    Foxing with 300wsm ?

    Thanks for the replies so far guys. I currently run 155grn Berger vld's and these are both extremely accurate and effective as a deer round, although a bit overkill on Roe. I was wondering if anyone knew whether the standard Blaser twist would stabilise these lighter bullets ? If no one has tried that combination, I guess there's only one way to find out !! Regards,Rob.

    Foxing with 300wsm ?

    Hi all, as per title, is anyone foxing with a lightish bullet in their WSM ? I was thinking of loading my Blaser R93 300wsm with either a 100 or 110 grn bullet with the intention of achieving 3000+fps....anyone out there currently shooting such a thing ? Regards, Rob.

    20 vartarg turbo

    Speak to Steve Kershaw, he's built himself a 20 Vartarg (not turbo) and absolutely loves it. He's shot all sorts with it at some decent distances....really accurate calibre and cheap to feed ! Regards, Rob.
  12. Hi, I'll have the once fired cases please. PM me for payment details. Regards, Rob.
  13. Hi Bob, Just in the process of having a 22BR built by Steve Kershaw on a Stiller Predator action, with modifications to the AI mags its anticipated they will cycle really well. Can't wait to get it out for a play, having seen the incredible groups this reamer has shot for Steve, I can't help feeling that I'll be the largest limiting factor in the whole set-up. If you get one i'm sure you won't regret it. Regards, Rob.
