  1. Scotch Egg I just noticed that you asked for photos. Excuse the poor lighting, no flash. Hope you can see what you need to. Any other questions, just ask. Markymark. Interesting link, I've always been surprised there isn't much available in the uk to modify AIs. Perhaps most UK shooters like to keep them to factory specs?
  2. Baldie did the conversion for me. Yes, the hinge now folds the other way and "captures" the bolt knob. Makes more sense than folding the other way. The only issue that I've had is that the cheek piece, even on its lowest setting, is higher than the AT original. I've had to change from medium mounts to either high or very high to be able to see through the scope. With the benefit of hindsight, I might have been better buying an AX instead, but I like the look of the AT. Hope this helps

    Big problem with new rifle

    Good question. Makes me wonder if it's a problem with the brass and/ or the sizing process rather than the rifle. Could the neck and shoulder have stuck in the die and been pulled forward making the case too long? I can't see mention of factory ammunition being tried. Edit I see there is mention of Winchester ammo.

    The Shooting Show

    Any photos of the new bipod? I think I've seen it in a photo of a Bergara rifle from the show, but you couldn't see the pivot/attachment point. I'd also like to see if it would fit an AT spigot.
  6. I have the Opticron folding bipod featured on their website (without ball head). I haven't used it very much since it doesn't work with my current spotting scope. I always found it very stable on a bench and easy to transport. The simple design allows you to set it up in a couple of seconds. If you have any more questions I'll try to answer them.

    260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    Mick Miller Thanks for starting this thread. It might help me too, since I'm also trying new powders in 260 Rem. I'm on my second 260, having used H4350 in my first, but with the new regulations, I'm moving away from Hodgdon powders. I'm currently using 123 Scenars with N160, which give fantastic 3 shot, 100 yard, load delelopment groups, but I haven't had chance to work out how they shoot at longer ranges. They seem ok out to 300 yards, but not amazing. I stopped at a slight crunch when seating the bullet as I'm not keen on compressed loads, and have reached around 2900 fps, but with an ES of 50 or more. From what Laurie has said about N160 in 260 Rem, I suspect it's too slow for 123s, but it sounds like N150 may be too fast to get the 3000 fps I would like to be competitive against 139 gr bullets. I hoped that you might have good results with N150, because my other options seem to be either switch to 139s to possibly suit N160 better, or go to other powders, Reloader Swiss, Ramshot? I've had sudden pressure signs with Viht 500 series powders before, so I avoid them. Keep us posted how you get on.

    Quiz

    Thanks BD, I was lucky that there were a few watches on there that I really like, so spotted them straight away. Number 8 is one of those, TC!

    10 out of 10. Although number 7 was a 50/50 guess. I must spend too much time on Watchfinder!
