    .224 Valkyrie

    Andrew, a Boyd's At-One for a CZ527 is $199.99 on their website. To order one through Edgar Bros, the UK Distributor, the cost is £320. (Which is ~$420). I can appreciate things cost more in the UK but I think that is ridiculous... Scrummy

    Baldie, would this go into a CZ527? Scrummy

    1897 Winchester Trench Gun

    The issue is that 24" barrel rule. Quite a lot of those 1897 clones go to Canada where no issues with short barrels. UK a small market for that kind of thing. The 1897s do look fun. I've got a Winchester M12 (Not trench) that is very very slick

    Bighorn in Creedmoor

    Hiya Baldie, just out of interest what does a .224 Valkyrie give you that a say a fast twist .22-250 doesn't in a bolt action? I get it could be useful if you wanted a micro action like a howa or a CZ527 and don't want the issues of getting .223 AI to accurately feed but otherwise I'm stumped. Or is it you just want something new to play with? (And, let's be honest, who doesn't!?! ;) )
  8. Hello folks, Anyone use a shotgun when hunting foxes or get out with a shotty? Interested in how people set theirs up and we don't seem to have had a picture thread for a while. What will probably be my go to is a Benelli Supernova 12b, 24" smooth bore barrel with rifle sights and a Burris Speedbead and Fastfire III (3MOA Dot). Also has a Nordic Extension Tube which is mainly from shooting Practical Shotgun as well. If I can find the pictures I shall put up pictures of my Winchester M12 and Browning BPS... Scrummy

    That's interesting Davy, glad to hear the red dot works on moving targets. Only tried it with slugs on turning targets so far. I feel a variation coming on for trying with a fox drive and using the red dot there

    Those are some wonderful sounding pieces misery guts! And I bet a black powder 10 is great to shoot!

    You might be right Bob though I think it’s been fairly well looked after

    223 rifle choice - what ????

    Another recommendation for the CZ527 in .223 Rem. 1:9 twist barrel seems to like pretty much anything I've bought and put through it. I've got the "American" version which is a lovely light package. Scrummy
  22. CZ527 would be my choice. Use the "American" as my range rifle for Bisley plinking.

    Rifle scope for 22LR

    There is something to be said for decent, simple scopes. I have a Zeiss Dialyt 4x36 on my .22 sub 12 ftlb air rifle.... (Yes I'm an optics tart...)
  24. I enjoy shooting my .223 but if only going for one rifle I'd go for .243 or 6.5x55 for use with deer if you choose at a later date
