  1. I'd say what ever you do, try to match the core features your LR scope has to any new scope to aid you switching back and forth between rifles/scopes. Core features I'm referring to are; + MOA or MIL reticle & turrets + SFP or FFP + Reticle type Personally I find there's nothing worse than getting used to a reticle or turret operation, then having to remember how the other settings work again when switching rifle. Keep things consistent and you can switch back and forth without the cognitive load.

    Imr 4350/varget

    Personally I wouldn't bother...you'll have to make the switch to a REACH compliant powder very soon anyway. If I were you just try comparative RS or Vhit powders and work up some new loads. It'll also be cheaper too...both those powders are now mindnumbingly insane in price. Based on your interest in IMR4350/H4350 & Varget, take a look at the following; RS62 or Viht N150 = similar to IMR4350 & H4350 RS50 or RS52 or N140 = similar to Varget Good luck!

    .284 / 6x47 Switch Barrel Build

    Baldie is right with needing seperate SA and LA lower units if wanting to run something long like a .300NM and shorter, like a 6x47. Take a look at the Eliseo RTM chassis systems. I built mine on one for this very reason. I literally unscrew the front action screw and I can swap the lower unit from SA to LA. At the same time I loosen 4 bolts holding the foreend hand guard to expose the freeloating barrel, stick it in a barrel vice, place an action wrench up the backend and hey presto...barrel off. Then same in reverse. Granted it's not as quick as the AI quick change system but I have zero need to do a barrel swap in the field. Overall it takes me about 5 mins in total to swap barrels, bolts and lowers.
  4. Very tidy that...well done her for 2nd time outing. The little '47 is just so pleasant to shoot.

  7. Bump. FYI - this is an AICS pattern mag that will work with rifles accepting double stack, single feed (e.g. AX rifles I think)

    New Powder Trickler Works Well

    Auto throw & auto trickler combo shipped came to £325. Can't remember what VAT/Duty came to. Probably around £360 all in. A&D scales are around £560.
  9. This was a route I too once explored...and also got the same response as you. As I understand it, it's not really a commercial outfit, more a guy in his shed doing it now and then for friends / close customers.

    Defiance / Eliseo Tube Gun

    Ha - don't worry about it. Nills replied saying that it is indeed walnut. I agree with you that it doesn't entirely look like walnut, but that is what they state it to be. Likely to be a different type/grade from the main grip itself.

    Defiance / Eliseo Tube Gun

    Yeah I'm not sure tbh Bob, they don't state anything on their website/brochure. I've emailed them to find out for curiosity sake. I agree that it does give off a sapele vibe about it.

    Defiance / Eliseo Tube Gun

    Thanks Bob. Yeah the Nill grips are very nice. The camera doesn't do the colour justice though, it's lovely in person. Not sure what you mean about matching adjustable shelf...are you referring to the cheapo folding pine kitchen table it's all sitting on? Yeah...I wish that was walnut too 😀

    7mm LRM

    I'd looked into the LRM a while back. In practical terms it doesn't offer any performance or real life accuracy gain over the 7 Rem Mag. The big downside I saw with the 7LRM is the propriety brass. Can't be bought from anyone but Gunwerks in the US. And you can't form it from other parent brass. I'd already emailed them about this a while back so decided it wasn't for me. But we all love shiny new toys 😁 That specialist die looks interesting though!
