  1. Each to their own eh! Will you be painting the barrel ronin to match the stock or leaving it shiny?
  2. Will be a very practical build nice. What’s wrong with spiral fluting I rather like the look of it! Ben

    Plucking machine

    Hi All, Does anyone have sat gathering dust a stand alone dry plucking machine for doing pheasants/partridge. Ideally for collection in the South Devon area? Many thanks Ben

    On a more serious note, cash waiting for a half decent plucker if there’s one out there not being used. Ben

    👍🏻 Iv got the image in my head now of a bird straddling a plucking machine, that would leave a nasty rash!

    Summer 2018

    Good for pheasant poults, not for cover crops! Picking up a lot more vermin day and night also everything must be getting hungry and thirsty. Ben

    Rifle scope for 22LR

    I picked up a 6x42 S&B for 200 quid and it’s made me fall back in love with my .22. Just about focuses down close enough, glass is fantastic for lamping bunnies and you know it’s going to be bomb proof. Ben

    Ask any gamekeeper this time of year their thoughts on foxes, personally I’d wipe the f**kers of the face of the planet. I might get some sleep then. Ben
  13. Hi All. This is not beign used at the moment and I have another build in the making. I’m selling it as an action and bits but the barrel still shoots great with home loads if someone wanted to drop it in a stock. Tikka T3 short action with bolt and trigger. Border .243 chambered 24 inch light varmint contour threaded 14x1 1-9 twist. Barrel done 1500+ rounds regularly cleaned with wipeout. All ceracoted in graphite black but a bit worn. High optilocks and JetZ compact. Shoots 58-87gn bullets superbly still by no means shot out. Selling as a package £300 inc rfd or collection from South Devon.
  14. Have Forster dies, Lapua & Norma brass and a selection of Berger 6mm bullets if barrel and action sell. Ben

    Lightforce 170 reflector

    Hi All, I’m after just the reflector for a Lightforce Striker 170. The gardener kindly drove my buggy into a low shed and smashed the roof mounted lamp. Has anyone got an old Lightforce 170 kicking around that’s broke I can use for spares? Many thanks Ben

    hornady eld match

    hornady eld match

    Yes mate understood but should you be shooting live stuff a silly ranges if your not certain it’s going to hit? Regardless of what flavour bullet is used and weather it’s a rat or a deer. 😀 Ben

    hornady eld match

    Am I missing something but what’s wrong with the intended hornady bullet range for shooting vermin, Vmax? Not sure about everyone else but I can get just as good accuracy from Vmax throughout the spectrum as from target bullets for shooting vermin at normal-medium ranges. I have shot a few foxes with the 47 using the new eld-x 100gn bullets over the last month as couldn’t get any 95gn Vmax, can’t tell any difference they all dropped to the shot. Ben
