    PJS by Forfar, will get it done quickly and at a very fair price. I think you'd be waiting a while to get Callum to attend to it. Or, Eric Burnett, who I think is still working outside Mintlaw for Buchan Guns ? Grant Taylor on the edge of Dundee also would do a proper job.

    Surely "commercial" covers a broad spectrum, from the estate shoots run as described by Drum, to the big money stuff run by specialist companies or the big game rearers. Commercial would generally refer to where a keeper/keepers aare mployed full time and some days are let ?

    Mcmillan/PSE or similar for T3

    Anybody have a Mcmillan/PSE or similar stock for a T3 they are thinking of moving on ? It's for a 30-06 stalking rifle, so doesn't have to be adjustable. Cheers Malc

    Behind the license revocation

    Personally, a 150 bird day about twice a year is my stretch. I beat a lot more, and at that shoot the surplus is breasted out and the meat used in pies to feed the guns and beaters. But if other folk can afford to pay to shoot 500 or 1000 birds in a day, I have no problem, as long as the meat goes into the food chain. I really cannot see the pleasure in such a day myself, as I cannot imagine the birds would be presented as fair or challenging ? Lets not get into the politics of envy, if it were not for the great capitalist world we live in, we would all mostly be getting hung as poachers for the taking of any of the Kings game. Always seems to be the middle classes who come away with the left wing holier than thou attitudes regarding the rich and what they get up to with their millions, when in fact they're not doing too bad out of the system.

    Behind the license revocation

    We all need to stick together on all aspects of shooting. Those who are blinkered enough to think that a ban on game shooting will not in any way lead to a ban on them playing with their black rifles or their ten different guns at the range are in need of a reality check. Yes, there are issues within driven pheasant and partridge shooting, but they lie in getting the game to the table, the actual numbers shot on a day are irrelevant. The releasing of reared birds is no more harmful to environment in the greater scheme of things than a poultry farm, where the birds live in much worse conditions, even free range.

    Sierra 130TMK 6.5 accuracy

    That last photo is what I believe the 47 is capable of, or should be. I'll trial some RS52 versus the RS62 ( I have found RS60 too temp sensitive in the past). I just haven't had the time/weather to really test this rifle, just needed to get a load working for deer. Great to see someone getting the accuracy I would be looking for out of the 130 TMK. Cheers folks !

    Interests...most things shooting...but not in a positive way by the sounds of it. More raptors are killed by wind turbines and silly birder tags than by rogue keepers.

    You cannot artificially raise grouse. All you can do is manage the habitat to encourage their breeding success, which in turn benefits many other species. And the article is in a Nationalist left wing rag, SNP propaganda rubbish.

    Sierra 130TMK 6.5 accuracy

    I found I could get the 123 Amax and the 123 Scenar both to do single hole groups without too much effort. I've changed rifle now, the freebore in this one is rather generous (I didn't commission this build), and so I have moved up to a heavier bullet. I would also add I use this for stalking as well as informal target/gong. Its also very much a stalking rifle as opposed to my previous 47, and as such not so easy to shoot having a lot less weight about it. My angle stems from this; is the TMK as "tuneable"as to achieve those same one hole groups ? At the moment, with the very little time I've had to work with it, about 42.0gr RS62 has produced results perfectly adequate for accurate deer work (and the bullet has been very good) albeit with slightly disappointing velocities (2700 out of a 24" 8 twist) But as our local comps and the SGA shoot approach, my thoughts turn to getting the groups that wee bit tighter.

    Sierra 130TMK 6.5 accuracy

    Sounds like you're running a 47 from the charge weights ? Currently running the 130TMK over RS62, and velocities are a touch on the low side. But mainly concerned with how you'd compare the TMK with other common 6.5 bullets for outright accuracy ?

    Sierra 130TMK 6.5 accuracy

    Is anybody running the Sierra 130TMK in a 6.5, and if so, how are you finding them for accuracy and ease of fine tuning a load ?

    Lapua 6.5mm 139gr Scenars

    Aye, I am aware they are available to buy, just hoped someone might have some spare.

    Lapua 6.5mm 139gr Scenars

    Looking to buy circa fifty Lapua 139gr Scenars to try a load development. Happy to buy a full box or more. Cheers Malc
