    Wet pin cleaning solution

    Squirt of cheapest washing up liquid and dishwasher rinse aid I can find, pinch of citric acid, 20 minutes in the LEM and they're as new.

    An Afternoon on the crows.

    I have a couple of frozen RTAs in a spare chest freezer for a rainy day! You could eat well off the roads round here, pretty steady supply of badger, fox, game birds and a monthly Munjac/Roe I'd estimate.

    Fair play to him, I've seen that video a few times, great watch!

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    Drag bag

    They fit a rifle with Drone or thermal on them at a push, any normal scope will fit fine. You can fit two rifles in one at a push. I'd guess you'll need may be a 55 for a 26" barrel.
  6. If you've got a lot of stuff to shoot and/or it needs shooting ASAP, NV/thermal is a no brainer. You see such a huge amount more life going on with a thermal spotter, its a revelation.

    I played with the app briefly on iphone, gave up on it pretty quickly as it kept dropping out and needing reconnecting every 20 seconds. I usually use mine off a bench so leaning forward to press a couple of buttons between strings etc isnt really much of an inconvenience.

    QuickLoad advice - 30-06 with 185gn+

    That's the powder suggestions (no Hogdons powders etc) for each of the 4 bullets, based on max 60K psi and a 105% fill. Bare in mind the COAL and H2O capacity can affect the results quite a bit. And obviously QL numbers are indicative at best sometimes!

    Any idea what H2O capacity your brass is?

    6XC powder choice

    Cheers both, good info. Anyone running the lighter bullets in 6XC?

    6XC powder choice

    What are people using for 6XC? Mostly for 100-105 grain bullets, probably some 87 vmax/bergers too. Of that on my shelf, RS52/60/62 seem the best candidates. RL17/RS60 seems to have been the non-H4350 go to with 105+ Anyone using any of the above with 87s and/or 100/105s? I've got a fair stack of 52 and am hoping the lighter bullets might favour that over 60/62... Any input greatly appreciated. Ta, R.
  13. Both types have worked perfectly fine for me on Photons, Drones and various addons. Shimming rings is fine and deffo the most robust answer especially good if its a permanent install, for add-on use or torches which are moved on/off or between rifles however personally I find them a ball ache, each to their own I guess!
  14. Hog is a 100 quid cheaper and is getting good reviews, hard to justify giving SC an extra oner. Alignment will be the same issue whatever torch you get. The best mounts I've tried are the 3D printed ones from Andy @ Ludircous Lumens, or these type https://bestfoxcall.co.uk/product/sniper-hog-adjustable-torch-mount/ but I'm sure you can find these cheaper such as (if it loads)
  15. BFC I expect: https://bestfoxcall.co.uk/product/sniper-hog-66lrx-torch-with-1-x-led/
