    Alternatives to QuickLoad

    I use my Mac professionally, so there’s no way I’m installing Windows on it. But thanks for the replies guys - I think you’ve answered my question - QuickLoad is still the way to go...

    Alternatives to QuickLoad

    Sure, I’ve started off with the reloading manuals, but they don’t take into account the effects of Lapua brass with small primer pockets etc.

    Alternatives to QuickLoad

    Hi Guys, Do any of you know of an alternative to QuickLoad? I have a Mac laptop, iPad, iPhone and Android phone. Unfortunately QuickLoad seems to be PC only, and I have a load that I’d like to check. Many thanks, Cam.

    T3x Trigger Question

    Does anybody know if the Bix N Andy trigger is single stage?
  5. Scope now sold. Thanks for all the interest.
  6. No problem, give me a shout via PM and we’ll sort it out?
  7. Hi Guys, I have a Falcon Menace M25 5.5-25x50 scope for sale. It's the newer 50mm objective version, it's in FFP and has the excellent B20 reticle. I bought this scope as a cheap introduction to FFP, and was so impressed that I ended up buying two of them. It has 0.1MRAD clicks which match the subtensions throughout the magnification range, so you literally dial what you see. It's in used condition – 8/10. £195 posted to mainland UK, and yes, that's my best price.
  8. Hi Guys, I have a KRG Whiskey 3 Gen 5 chassis for sale. It's the fixed version for REM700SA footprint rifles, and it's black in colour. https://shop.marchscopes.co.uk/collections/krg-rifle-stocks/products/krg-whiskey-3-stocks?variant=4373628223518 There's one small mark on the aluminium fore end, which was there from new. You've got to look for it to see it, but I'm including it in the description for the sake of transparency. It's a fantastic chassis which completely transformed by REM700. I've really enjoyed owning it – but ultimately I can't justify having something so Gucci on a rifle that I rarely shoot. It's boxed as new. £645 posted to mainland UK, and yes, that's my best price.
  9. Hi Guys, I have a Nikko Stirling Diamond LR 10-40x56 scope for sale. It has a 30mm dia tube, and 1/8MOA clicks with the RTZ system. I purchased it with the intention of doing a review on it, and never got the time. It's never even been mounted. I found the parallax adjuster to be quite stiff, but I am assured that this is normal as it's weighted to be used with an optional wheel (not included). Don't be fooled by its modest RRP – these scopes offer surprisingly good optics and you'll be hard pushed to find similar value for money. It's boxed, as new, with all the original paperwork. I'm looking for £295 posted to mainland UK, and yes, that's my best price.
  10. Hi Guys, I have a Nikko Stirling Diamond LR 4-16x50 scope for sale. It has a 30mm dia tube, and 1/4MOA clicks with the RTZ system. I purchased it with the intention of doing a review on it, and never got the time. It's been mounted for some photographs, but it's never been shot. Don't be fooled by its modest RRP – these scopes offer surprisingly good optics and you'll be hard pushed to find similar value for money. It's boxed, with all the original paperwork. I'm looking for £195 posted to mainland UK, and yes, that's my best price.

    T3x Trigger Question

    Great, thanks. Now I just need to figure out where I can buy a complete trigger unit...

    T3x Trigger Question

    Hi Guys, I have a question about the single stage trigger that’s installed on the standard T3x. Is it the type of single stage trigger that remains stationary until it breaks cleanly, or is it the type that moves under increasing pressure until it breaks without warning (like a revolver trigger). Thanks, Cam.

    Recommend a: Digital Powder Dispenser

    Thanks for the replies, guys.

    Recommend a: Digital Powder Dispenser

    Hi Guys, Which digital powder dispenser would you recommend? I’m currently using a Lyman Gen 6 which is constantly short measuring, and drifting (which requires constant recalibration). Are there any which are known for their reliability? Cam.

    IOR

    Looks like a solid move forward. My main criticisms with the original Recon that I owned were: the mid-tube focus, which was a major pain to use; the coarse reticle which obscured way to much of the target; the very weak reticle illumination; the soft painted finish which made a 6 week old scope look like a 6 year old scope; the very heavy-handed multi coatings which resulted in a very obtrusive colour casting. An unbelievable design flaw with the original scope, was the raised nub on the magnification collar which was in precisely the wrong spot for use with a non-chassis two-lug action like the Remy 700. I had to keep dialing back from 27x before cycling the bolt each time. I'll be interested to test the new zero-stop/rotation counter feature. I still maintain that the original Recon didn't have a zero stop at all, but a (very effective) rotation counter that could be screwed all the way down until it galled with the saddle of the scope. It looks like the secondary zero option has been dropped, and I'll miss that. It was a handy feature when switching back and forth between say a muzzle break and a moderator. Hopefully with the Gen 2 they've backed off on the colour casting – Schott glass may (arguably) be the best on the market, but it's hard to really appreciate the talents of a concert pianist when there's a death metal band performing a few feet away!
