    Hi, what are the pro and cons of using a Primer Pocket uniformer? This is for 6 br rifle using Lapua brass. Nick

    Which electronic powder thrower/dispenser

    For me Hornady Lock and Load like any powder scales spend your money wisely, always check the charge on my Hornady Balance beam scales. Choose a suitable location for using your scales, and don’t rush the reloading.

    Hi all, I had the great pleasure to shoot the first 600 Benchrest at diggle last Sunday even better my very first time using electronic targets! Now on one of my 5 shots fired a couple of my shots were showing SD 5.4 someone made a comment wow they are good? To be honest I’ve no idea what they were referring to and since I was shooting had no time to follow on with the conversation. i can’t for the life of me remember what’s so interesting about SD ?

    Good read, will read again and have a dabble. cheers for the input. Nick
  7. Yes the gun handling is good, the loading of my ammo is good, still learning I think you never stop learning . My scope is 8-32 and very happy with the rifle and scope set up. My discipline is Fclass and I like the Benchrest I only wish I could shoot more Benchrest.its like vince says practice and practice gives great dividends and reflects on your scoring and wind reading which at diggle is one hell of a windy place. If you can combine everything and still hit the target and score then there is definitely an improvement. Work and family commitments reduce my attendance at times.
  8. Hi vince, want to shoot the 600 next week, as it’s my mums anniversary of her passing on 23rd .hence No shooting.
  9. Thanks, I will use my sightron for both disciplines.

    Couldn't resist.

    I’d pick up Seiko 5 sports 200 metre Kinetic watch some months ago , with broken stainless steel strap for £30.00 . RRP £350.00 put new strap on and changed seiko deploy catch over onto new strap. Looks great. have you thoughts of having a new movement in the watch that given up?

    Why don’t you get in touch with Simon or Brian fox from fox firearms, they can recommend and give you some prices

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    In Basc the deer department recommended no more than 6x or fixed power as shooting in forestry you didn’t need high power scopes . if you was shooting long range and had the land and a good safe back stop then a variable scope would be fine.

    Yes plotting ,wind calls is my downside, and understanding what in front of me on the plotting sheets and understanding how to correct. Nick
