  1. An interesting review here: http://www.laserrangefinderreview.com/hunting/vortex/
  2. If they're as good as he's saying Chris they are definitely worth more than a passing glance thanks
  3. I've not done much research but dont some binos work on a grid system as opposed a laser?

    Agreed the medallion is a nice touch
  5. Went out for a mooch yesterday and my trusted Leica RF had stopped working. Thankfully it was just a dead battery and all is well with the world again. I have however, started to wonder (As I've had my RF a number of years now) when I will need to replace it and what is out there? I would like a vectronix but budgets wont stretch that far. Are Leica still the best buy? Do they now compensate for angled shots?

    Do you have a range where you can test fire loads or is it all theory?
  8. Reloading course

    Where has all the reloading kit gone? Last time I was in there it was replaced with clothing and they didn't have a range where you could test your loads.

    Think you'll find Dauntsey no longer run the course.

    You're right, I don't need to explain myself but in the spirit of a harmonious existence between fellow forumites, I'd tried my hardest to buy a Lyman, Spud was by far the cheapest at £225 but he, like everyone else, was/is out of stock and the likelyhood of getting one this side of Christmas was slim at best. I need to reload and my case cleaning kit was bust. I took the opportunity to look again at S/Steel. I've had a bad experience of dealing with China in the past on Ebay such that; I refuse point blank to deal with them or their products (via Ebay) so this route was out. I'd looked at the jewellery/rock polishers and yes they're cheaper but the ones I thought suitable, by the time you'd added on the media etc it worked out they were more than half the cost Spud quoted me and Spud had one designed for the job at a price that was above the Lyman but was in stock and I now have it on the kitchen table. Is it more than I wanted to pay? Yes! but I find most things are. Spud bent over backwards to help, for which I am extremely thankful for he's a top bloke.

    Its black, he tells me

    I've bit the bullet [pun intended] and/or succumbed to Spud's charms and bought me a rotary steel tumbler that's arriving tomorrow, thanks Spud.

    Ideally I needed it tomorrow to meet my deadline of Friday . A big ask I know. Snr mngt got wind of it and has suggested I have it for my Xmas pressy and so the Lyman came back into the mix. Having phoned round for the Lyman, assuming someone would have one in stock somewhere, it seems everyone is out of stock in the UK unless someone knows where there is one?

    Thanks will take a look. Anyone else use these rock polishing set ups as these seem a cheaper option?

    The product you have is for sale in the states for $124, here in the UK it's on sale for £290 and none in stock. For those interested in starting a UK Vs USA pricing debate I have stated this purely for illustrative purposes so lets not get embroiled in the USA Vs UK pricing issues that have been done to death previously. For what I want it for, ie use once a year for a couple of hours having £300+ sat on the shelf collecting dust is too much. Having said that, £150 ish is reasonable to my thinking and something I can live with.
