    Thank you for the clarification. I have a mate that has a fortis smock he loves it

    Yes they were county covers so are we talking about the same kit ?

    I was looking at Fortis for my next smock. I have never owned any of there clothing but it looks and feels like no nonsense robust gear. there story looks very similar to Arktis. Any opinions on which are the best?

  7. .22 Semi-auto ammo

  8. Newbie advice & Hi!

    Just checked Rimfire Magics site and they seem very thin on second hand gear? They always used to have a fair bit of stuff ? If you can find a few extra quid for a scope sounds like the browning ticks all the boxes
  9. Newbie advice & Hi!

    what sort of scope and moderator can you get for £25?
  10. Newbie advice & Hi!

    Welcome. Google rimfire magic they should have all options and will give you very good advice. I get on ok with subs through a custom 10/22 they supplied me if its really a semi auto you want. I like it but in hind site a bolt action would have done me fine and as above the CZ is a good one. With that budget (£400) i would certainly go 2nd hand, bolt option, European, moderator, you may be lucky and get a European scope but a leoupold/ Nikon would be fine. forget the variable power. fixed power scope would be fine as the variable power adds value to the scope and you should use that value on the glass. So a better make with fixed power would be my choice over an inferior make with variable power. presume you will often be shooting first / last light with a gun that is suited to 50 to 60 yards Sam
  11. Yes welcome.Great choice! enjoy it and see where it takes you. George out of interest why did you say Tikka 1:8 an excellent choice for non re loaders? do you imply that the next step up in accuracy would be a custom job with hand loads and they are one of the best factory options?
  12. Brand new Open to offers. Never been on a rifle needs a tad of finishing, not exactly a “drop in” but a project for a person with some bey basic inletting skills. External looks good. I can pm my number if any one wants to speak to me about it. Made by Parmoor gun stocks
  13. scope elevation issues

    I would like some advice please, I have mounted a few scopes in my time never had any issues but having one that dials is new to me ......... Zeiss Victory 3-12x56 ASV +. I have zeroed at 100M and set on the zero stop but only have 22 clicks up left before it runs out (it has 65 clicks for one complete turret revolution). This does not take full advantage of the ASV function but i think sticking with a reduced dialing range would be better than shimming my first decent scope ! may be shimming is ok as it is what a "Zeiss approved independent company" told me to do but i have seen some negative comments about doing this. The scope is mounted on a standard Howa 1500 with a picatinny rail and low mounts as the rail gives height it looks a perfect height on the rifle and to my eye. What should i do? any advice would be most welcome. With thanks Sam
  14. I have had my new book delivered today. Its in great condition and was very well packaged. Thank you
  15. scope elevation issues

    Thanks chaps. Yes am using my bore sighter. I can dial out to 360M which for now will probably do. Just wanted to check I was not missing a point. Mounts are should be the same as new out of the packet but I will measure and double check
  16. scope elevation issues

    With the ASV turret you zero at 100 m and set the zero stop the idea being you dial up only and the 65 clicks for one full turn is plenty taking you out to 500/600 M. The rail would be the answer setting the scope higher letting me dial back down to zero then back up to the full range. One full ill turn is 65clicks but the scope has more like 90 available by re setting turret.
  17. scope elevation issues

    Ok sorry my mistake this must be a standard rail then. Need to gain 40 clicks (1cm at 100 m= 1 click)
  18. scope elevation issues

    What about a small amount of shimming with tape of camera film? Recommended or not?
  19. scope elevation issues

    Thanks for your help. a set of low adjustable rings would keep my scope / eye level the same but offer increased elevation
  20. scope elevation issues

    Its on a rail. dont know what sort but it sits 6mm above the action and looks like a 20MOA rail?
