    Hi, I don't know about cost, but at night I have to use my Helion monocular just with my left eye, so I can use the right for the rifle. I think it’s the difference between the bright vision in the helion suddenly contrasting to the night. During the day it’s fine. i turn the brightness really low which helps but I still get shadowy vision. I think the same as OSOK.
  5. Hi, let me know if anyone has one for sale, or can recommend a good one to buy. its for 243 and possibly but no smaller than 222, thanks Cooperman
  6. I’ve tried the SST to 3300 FPS, where the bolt was stiff, but no real pressure signs at 3200, so it’s not lack of speed. The 58s go well at 3600.
  7. Another horrible result this weekend was trying different SST loads at 200 yards and it managed a 6 inch group first was through the middle? Worst group I’ve ever seen. A bedded BAT! the 100 yards were normal😜 at fair to crap near MOA. rebarrell seems the most likely option long term. Tremo sold me 200 58s which work well enough until the frustration reaches that point. ive reloaded for 5 years now, and the other 243 and 270 I shoot are great.
  8. Hi snakeman, yes 243. It’s a thick barrel, probably remmy varmint. I’ve two 243’s, a sako 75, which likes 90g, but fancied trying the heavy bullets in 6mm. The sako shoots in the .4’s when I do my bit with my very carefully made loads. Thanks Bradders - I wondered if funny barrel. If it helps, The magneto says the first shot is always c50-60 FPS slower than the others. If it fire four, the third three aren’t any more accurate but the SD is close. weejohn - it’s definately a 1:8, which I agree is bizarre given the build spec. Thanks all
  9. Hi Terryh, I rodded it with tape, used a marker pen on the red, and finally asked a gunsmith to check - it is definitely a 1:8. Bizarre indeed.
  10. Dear wise experts of UKV, Hoping you can help. I bought a second hand rifle that looked the business from a shop in Shropshire - BAT action, Krieger match barrel, Sheehane thumbhole laminate stock, Jewell trigger, all looked great with a little used barrel. It’s been made with a reputable gun smith 8 years ago. It is definitely a 1:8 twist. I was hoping to use 103 eldx in it. Bore scope shows little use and a good throat. It’s 7 tho’ shorter than a new sako factory barrel rifle when comparing OAL with SST. It will shoot 58g vmax to within 1/2 MOA with careful handloads, slightly worse with 75g Nosler, just about MOA with 95g SST, and about the same with 103 eldx. I then had it bedded at the front, as the BAT didn’t fit the aluminium bedding block. Accuracy similar as was before, but now doesn’t put 2 of the the three shots together, just neat triangles. Reduced the barrel from 25 to 24 and recrowned. Is it possible to deliberately make a rifle to shoot light bullets at the expense of shooting heavy bullets, even with a fast twist? The build spec was for light factory loads. I tried to contact the original owner to no avail.... Thanks for all suggestions or knowledge, Cooperman.
