  1. Hello Tiff. Is this scope still available & if so whats its condition?

    Cheers

  2. 6.5 Creedmoor Loads

    Thanks for the Creed loading info, having just bought one, but what's the story about the "Powder Ban"? This is the first I've heard of it. Can anyone give me any info please Cheers for that Phaedra. I know it sounds stupid, but that really was the first I'd heard of this latest thing to be banned. Christ almighty, everyone's at it. I wonder how long it'll be before the wonderful mayor for London will will get onto this bandwagon and get his daggers out for us lot?

  4. Essex variation turnround

    Snap! I sent in for an added rifle + caliber on the same day as you and received it back, all tickety boo, on the 5th Jan as well they didn't even request a 1 for 1 swap. Happy days indeed. Well done the Met!
  5. Ah, the penny finally dropped! We were talking at cross purposes. Having had a look at one of my old targets, the 1 inch diameter circle, with a broken line, to which you refer is the "Super V" used to try to sort out the winner of a tied score in a final. i.e. 50.10.4 beating a 50.10.3 for instance, or 10 V's with 4 in the "Super V" beating 10 V's with 3 in the "Super V" So, going back, the blue lined Bull is 6'' dia, the V is 4'' & the S/V 1'' The thought of anyone putting 10 shots into a 0.3 moa circle under the McQueens COF would be beyond exceptional.
  6. 284 Versus RS62 or Vhita 165

    Hi . I use N165 in my .284 F class rifle (not Shehane). 55.5 grains gets me 2800+ fps. Using 180 / 183 grain Sierra M-K's sitting about 10 thou off the lands. Its a very useful combination. The barrel I use is a 34 inch Bartlein with 1:8 twist
  7. Hello Mike. I'm not going to trap on endlesly here, it sounds as though you have settled on a .223 in a Tikka t3x so I will validate your decision. Its a good rifle no doubt. I have the earlier Varmint model (T3) with the longer barrel also in 1:8 with the s/steel option. The only changes I made was to put a better stock on it, opting for a GRS in a shade of grey, which makes it look really nice. A heavier tactical style bolt handle and a 10 round mag which allows for seating longer bullets when handloading. Don't worry, go ahead and get one, you'll be fine with it.
  8. Wow, ok then, but do you only have the standard 3 second exposure to shoot the target, at any of several varying positions, using various types of rifles inc. Iron sighted rifles? If so you should get down to the Imperial meeting in July and wipe the floor with all the lads who usually clean up there. Or is it a fixed, benchrest type setup you run down there, with all the time in the world to take the shot? If its the regular NRA McQueens setup you run then you boys are absolutely pie hot and should certainly be able to teach the rest of us a thing or two eh! In fact, I don't know why we even bother.
  9. Thanks a lot for the input. It kinda confirmed what I thought, but there's never any harm in asking wiser heads! As for the size of the V bull, I can't remember the exact size off the top of my head, but its the one the NRA use at Bisley during the Imperial and its shot at 300 yards, not 200. Cheers all.
  10. Just wanted to pick a few brains here. I'm toying with the idea of getting a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel made made for my .308 Remmy / A.I. clone and just wanted to ask what may be an obvious question. Will the Remington boltface and A.I. magazine accept the 6.5 Creed cartridge? I know the COAL of the 6.5 is a teeny bit longer, but is it close enough to get concerned about? I was considering buying a new 6.5 creed rifle, but thought "whats the point", when my Remmy is a peach of a rifle, especially on the McQueens castle where I regularly get scores in the high 50's with it (best is a 50.9) but I wouldn't mind giving a new cartridge a go. I welcome any input you want to pass on, and a happy Christmas to all!!
  11. quality mincer

    Julian Clarey!
  12. Listen, and I'm not trying to be funny here, but 1.5 to 1.75 inches at 1K ! Was that the measurement on the target or on the screen?
  13. Yes it does, its the standard length legs. Unfortunately I was after one with the longer legs as I can't get flat enough to shoot with the standard length. All the best
  14. "Wipe Out" is a pretty good cleaner. It shows when there is copper in the bore as it shows up a Blue tinge on the patches. If you combine it with the "Accelerator" it'll cut down on your cleaning time.
  15. Your HPS 155 grain Sierra MatchKings are a descent rounds indeed. My club uses them for Target Rifle comps, both long & short range, at Bisley and are capable of "Possibles" at all distances, providing the shooter is up to scratch!. Keep hold of what you have and see how you get on with them at the longer ranges.
