    Matchking - Can you give me your opinion on this video and what matey's saying? Thanks.

    Thanks Matchking. Great tip about the back hairs too.
  5. Ladies and gents…your knowledge is required! I have shot countless deer and foxes, but in December, I am going hog shooting! I’ve never shot a hog before and am using one of my .308’s, loaded hot with 180-grain soft-points. My dilemma is, although I know that you don’t shoot hogs like you do a deer (with regards to point of aim), but where the hell do you aim? The reason for my question that may make me sound like a novice that’s never killed an animal before, is due to me having read countless reports and watched loads of online videos from “expert” hog hunters, and they all seem to contradict each other. Some say shoot hogs in the head, whilst others say that hogs don’t tend to keep their head still for long enough to ensure a clean shot. …Others will say aim low (lower than you would on a deer) in order to hit the hogs’ low-lying heart…others say go for a shot in front of the shoulder in order to smash the -, where as other again, say that you should shoot them behind the shoulder…your thoughts please. Thank you.

    Hahaha!...it's not often you can blame a "hot barrel" even before you've fired a round!

    cleaning

    I know it's highly rated by some, but I can't stand that bore foam. For a really deep-clean, I use KG12 followed by a bit of a buff with KG2. I've used it in my Sako TRG for years and for me, it's the dog's. The rifle still shoots one hole groups. I have a mate who swears by the foam. Each to their own I guess? I occasionally use a borescope and have never gotten and weird patches / marks, just a clean barrel. Have you considered looking at a different copper remover, just to put your mind at rest? But then, like Wildrover77 and rhhudson said, if it shoot just fine, and it's not actually damaged the surface of the bore, than why worry...shoot away!

    Remy 700 Hinged Floor Plate

    Thanks Exmarksman. Think black would be fine. I know they're not stainless, but I reckon I can change the colour of it without too much hassle. How much are you looking for? Thanks, Lee.
  9. Thanks Pork chop...Much appreciated.

    Remy 700 Hinged Floor Plate

    Ladies and gents, odd as it sounds, I'd like to go against the popular flow and fashion of things, and like to convert my Remy 700 SA (.308 win) back to the traditional / standard hinged floor-plate configuration. Does anyone know of anywhere, other than the Brownells (you'll have to remortgage your house) website that I can get hold of such an item? My rifle is stainless, so I'd ideally like to buy a new or near mint hinged floor-plate in silver. Happy to buy a used / no longer required one. Cheers, Lee.

  12. I'll take the 120 & 123-Grain A-Max's if that's OK?
  13. It's the multi choke version and "standard" size...i.e not a youth model.
  14. I bought this sweet little 20-bore a couple of years ago in the hope of introducing my daughter into shooting. We took it to the local clay grounds and she put five cartridges through it and didn't want any more! Trying to convince her, I then put a dozen or so cartridges through it myself, but to no avail! This gun has had less than one box of cartridges put through it. It has sat in my gun cabinet, gathering dust and is “surplus to requirements”. Obviously it’s in near mint condition. It’s a perfect (nearly new) gun that would be great for a person of a slight build, a youngster or just a lightweight game gun for anyone. If you are considering buying one of these new, I would advise you to take a look at this one before buying as you’re going to get a virtually new gun for a lot less money! £550 is the selling price and not the asking price. http://www.lincolnshotguns.com/products/lincoln-premier Transfer to local RFD £20 or collect in person (Portsmouth). Thanks, Lee.
  15. Not trying to sound awkward matey, but H4350 is available all over at less than £45. None of my business, but reckon you'll move it more easily if you drop the price a bit? I couldn't really be much further away from you, or I'd take it off you.
