  1. I had a burris four x with the same fault some form of contamination. Every time I fired it kept moving around. I sent it back and got a replacement which I then sold as it was brand new and upgraded. As others have said I'd send it back and either want a replacement or full refund! Read up on your rights.
  2. Give John a call he'll be your best option. When he makes them actions he machines the port with the rail on so that it all matches. So he would have to do the same with a new rail or depending how easy it is machine the rail. He is very helpful and I'm sure will sort something for you.
  3. Hi. I'd be interested in the 123g amax if they get sold separately. Thanks

    John Carr/ apex ZENITH action

    I have got an apex action. I had my name engraved on the side instead of apex. Its a single shot shot right bolt right port. I can't remember the model. It had the recoil lug machined as part of the action. Its a very good build quality and I would recommend them. Mine is in a 6.5x47 and has the small firing pin. John carr was a pleasure to deal with and is very accommodating. I can't comment on exact pricing but they are similar to all the other custom actions. The only downside is possible the resale value will be less than the other 'big brands' as they are not very well known.

    nightmaster 800 pill removal

    You have to unscrew the lense from then end. Then there is 2 holes opposite in the pill The kit should have come with a removal tool ( like a pair of tweezers) Just unscrew it and stick a new one in. As previously stated you can buy an additional neck section so you just change that rather than changing the pill every time. I wouldn' fancy doing it in a truck at night!

    Hawke Frontier

    I have a Hawke endurance 30 6-24 x 50 that I'm thinking of selling. It' a great scope it's on my 22lr I just want to downsize a bit. I don't know what it's like with a NV add on. Thanks Rhhudson

    Powder trickler

    I have got the hornady one. Yes it' plastic and light weight but it does the job ok. The only trouble is it seems to drop 2/3 granules of extruded powder at once.... So I thought I would try a Redding no 5 trickler as they have very good reviews... Well it' made from some sort of cast metal so nice and weighty. It' got a screw thread that in theory the powder should run in when you turn the trickler. So I thought it must be worth the extra money. Well on using it I was disappointed it was exactly the same as the cheap plastic hornady except heavy and expensive. So needless to say I sold that and I still use my hornady one.

    Newbie - needing a reloading kit

    I went with the rcbs rockchucker supreme kit. Depending on what levels of accuracy/consistency your looking at I can' see the need for upgrading anything. The only things I have done are the chamfer/ deburr tool and the primer pocket cleaner. Not because they were cap purely because they are a bit small and fiddly.

    Zeiss V8 4.6-35X60

    3cm at 100m is equlivent to 1moa (I think) so for you to move 1moa you need to adjust 6 clicks. As far as the adjustments go 0.5cm @100m so that' 1cm @200 1.5 cm@300 2cm@400 and so on..... 5cm@1000m If you only have 101 clicks then it will move 50.5cm @100m / 16.833 moa I have the smaller version 2.8-20x56 and my clicks are 1cm. So 100 clicks on my turret is 100cm @ 100m/ 33.33 moa Do you only have the one turn of your turret or will it go any more? (I think I'm right in what I'm saying but it' made my head spin too now)

    IMR 4166

    I use imr 4166 in my 6.5x47 and found I am getting good accuracy with it. But as Laurie said I am getting very low speeds. I was pushing 123g bullets to 3100fps with a hot n150 load. I switched over to 4166 because it was too hot with the n150 and couldn' get the accuracy any lower. And I'm only getting 2664fps and I'm at the top of my powder load. I think the reloaded Swiss powders are very good from what I hear but I am yet to try them because know one stocked it around me. Such a shame varget and the other good powders have been banned it's messed a lot of shooters up!
