    Pulsar nv455

    Overpriced for what it is. Get a PARD NV008 for less than half the price, and you'll have more optical magnification in much smaller and neater package, and still get all the toys in the Pulsar. Cheers Bruce

    Hornady V-MAX .243 58GR Loads

    Enough RS60 will get you those speeds (if your barrel is long enough) but don't expect the barrel to last for very long. Also, check with a ballistic program the difference in drop at a given range for a drop in MV of 100fps - it's not very much. Accuracy beats speed every time Cheers Bruce
  3. Will sell the rifle in one of the non Jagdmatch stocks for £500 and include 175 Hornady and Frontier previously fired brass. Cheers Bruce

    They are both bright, but the Sirius illuminated the field of view of the scope much more uniformly. The blacksun engine produces a beam that has a noticeably darker circle in the centre of the illuminated area (just where the reticle would likely be)

    For the N455 you will need a laser based illuminator to get the best out of it, and of the laser illuminators available the Sirius XTL is the best I have measured the brightness and power output and then done field testing on the Solaris, Sirius XTL (with and without dome) and the BlackSun engine, and IMHO the SIrius XTL domed version is definitely the one to have. Cheers Bruce

    Selling privately via RFD rules

    The buyer needs to send his FAC to you so you can check that he has authority to purchase the rifle. Then you need to complete Table 1 on his certificate where you put the date, your name, details of the rifle (make, model and serial number) your FAC number and finally your signature. Then you send his FAC back to him. Then you take the rifle to your RFD and have him send it to the buyers nominated rfd Cheers Bruce
  7.

Buyer to pay any RFD costs at their end Now includes 175 previously fired cases (Hornady and Frontier) CheersBruce

  9. Mate uses one with a PARD NV007 and it works great That's a lot of scope for the money - best of luck with the sale Cheers Bruce
  10. High end scopes hunting scopes are primarily sold on their improved ability to give a usable sight picture at dawn and dusk. Good glass is very important, but it's lens coatings that give these scopes their edge at dawn and dusk. At those times of day, blue light predominates and the coatings used are designed to optimise the passage from light at the blue end of the spectrum. Because they are optimised for blue light, these coatings have the down side of not passing infra red light very well. It's their poor performance in passing the IR light used with all digital NV kit, along with their lack of low parallax adjustment that can often make top end scopes perform less well than cheaper scopes Cheers Bruce
