  1. Hi guys,Here for sale is my Photon RT scope. It's in great condition and works beautifully, reason for sale is I want to upgrade so need the pennies.This comes with the a vortex cantilever 3inch mount so this is easy to mount on any picatinny rail, was mounted on my Blaser .243.The batteries were bought specifically for this so have not had a great deal of use, but they are fantastic, USB recharging and a great run time, they don't suffer in the cold like normal batteries. I use the same batteries in my thermal spotter and are the best you can get.I'm after a quick sale so am offering this for £450 posted. Comes boxed, bagged, with spare battery cradle (never used) and the other bits you see in the photos. Pickup available in Gloucestershire
  2. Hi all, Am selling a surplus to requirements Leupold VX-l 4.5-14x56 scope. This is parallax adjustable and has capped turrets. It's second focal plane and comes with the varmint reticle. Comes boxed with the neoprene scope cover. Has a 30mm tube with no marks as shown in photos. Apologies for the photo of the ret, I struggled to get it in focus. It's in near mint condition other than one minor scratch to the eye piece lens, doesn't affect use of scope and I'm unable to get it to show up in a photo but wanted to say for completeness sakes. Postage offered but collection from Gloucestershire preferred. £350 posted.
  3. What ret and is it FFP or SFP? Thanks
  4. I use one and am happy with it. :-)
  5. Hi guys, I'm looking specifically for proven loads in a Blaser R93. I'm well aware that all rifles are different but I'm struggling to get to 1700 foot pounds without getting flattened primers in my rifle. Where i've loaded hot and got 1700 foot pound I'm having a hard time opening the bolt. Many thanks guys

    FFP scope & turrets help please ?

    All my scopes are either fixed focal plane or fixed mag. I hate the fact that mil dot rets only work on a specific mag on SFP scopes. FFP is easier, or better yet just go for a fixed 6x or 8x and forget about the rest. Anyways, if you're shooting under 200 yards most calibers are an inch high at 100 and then just point and squeeze, job done.

    .22-250 load data for 75gr Amax

    Likewise, sent a PM with photos. Remember that reloads are for specific rifles and what works in one might not work in the other.

    Sako factory 100 grain fired just fine (and grouped) Powder was sealed from HPS in Gloucestershire, they're very reliable. Dated 2014 i believe. I will try a friends N160 to see if it makes a difference. Scales are weighing correctly. I checked with a 50grain vmax and a 100grain pro hunter. I also cross referenced with my beam scales before i sold them. Bolt was a little stiff to close with some resized brass. The dies i'm using are these (hornady american series). I'm thinking this is where something could be going wrong??? I'm tempted to buy some more factory ammo and pull the bullets and then reseat with my N160? Cases trimmed to length (or just under), then deburred inside and out. Bullets sat less than SAMMI. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to try a friends resized brass and load them.

    .243, Vit N160 & 100gr Sierra Pro Hunter - Where to start?

    Ok well that wasn't a good start! I started at 34grains and blew the primer out the back of the case! So i dropped down to 30grains to try again and got this: I then dropped to 29grains and got flattened primers: This was with once fired cases (i bought factory ammo and shot). I'm really at loss as to what to do here? I'm getting some different brass this week to try and i'll start at 29 and work my way up slowly again, but i can't believe this is so far below what Vit quote?

    P.s. all i can find on the net is this from roestalker.co.uk who's using an R8 (I'm on a R93 platform) and goes from 39-->43grains
  12. Hi guys, New rifle so looking to figure out powder measures as a starting point and a max so i can work my way up. However The Vit website doesn't have load data for this bullet but for another 100grain it's stating 34.4-->39.8. Does anyone have any load data for pro hunter 100grain in 243 using N160? Just so i know where i can work from and to? Many thanks
