    17 HMR Finfire II, Tikka T1 or Anschutz ?

    Depends on requirements. If carrying and lamping i would choose tikka from above? I always have a mod for 17hmr so like a 16" barrel and like the atec wave for 17 hmr as equal to sak but lighter. Plus no light shine off back of mod. Panther good but to heavy. Annie only 4 rd mag as weihrauch and heavy rifle. Finfire 2 i don't know but i have the quad hunter in synthetic stock shortened barrel atec mod and 10rd mag it does the job and nice to carry. Plus change barrel if no likey. CZ455 stainless 16" is also nice and discounted to £350 to make way for 457 worth a look.
  2. I have an unused MDT LSS chassis for a Rem 700 short action total as new in the box. This chassis uses AICS type mags and includes action screws. No point in me keeping it as I sold my .223 before it turned up and the silly lump of a barrel on my 20 practical wont fit without modification which I just don't fancy doing. £300 including the postage to a UK address. Thank you.

    Scope choices for .22 BR

    I shoot 50m 22br no rear support. I have used weaver t36 and i found it too much mag. Fine in practice but in comp i get the shakes when the pressure is on and get worse the more i try not to. I need to reduce magnification but cannot with a t36 so my scores suffer. I have done better with tasco 6-24*42 on cz452. I found t36 better at 100 yds but i think it's too much for 25yds, 8-32 would be better as somewhere in that range will work assuming fine crosshair.
  4. I have some left over components from my .410 home loading days. 160 short cup 1/2oz plastic wads 170 plastic wads size? 400+ cork fillers 500+ box of 36 cal cards All for £20 including post within UK Thank you.
  5. Thank you Dave i Will send text.
  6. I will take above if still available please

    17 HMR - has it a niche ?

    I have had both and still have 17hmr. Niche? Don't know really but a question on hmr always gets negative feedback. Hornet was useful when lack of hmr ammo. Reloading can replicate hmr/wsm or better it and at same cost. Good factory ammo but cost has increased and low stock levels in rfds. Performance compared to factory 55gr 223. So why not have a 223 as factory ammo can be bought for less? Plus more suitable for range. Hmr works with 16" barrel on a lighter frame so nice package to carry, more choice of rifles, higher magazine capacity , easier to moderate with smaller mod and deemed suitable for more land. Bulk deals on ammo available and stocked by most rfds. Although sometimes not a choice of brand, i think originally they were made by one manufacturer and all give adequate accuracy in a bog standard cz. Probably missed something but i think hmr is OK just not for every body.
  8. I have a Tikka 6 round magazine for .223 or similar for sale. Just over 3 months old as seen on receipt. £65 posted. Sold Thank you.
  9. I have a CZ455 stainless .22lr with 16" barrel I am thinking of selling. I have owned it for approx. 1 year from new and has not seen much use being one of a few .22lrs I have. Reason for selling is to save a little of the storage charges for a house move. It has the 5 round factory magazine and is in the original packaging. £300 collected from Devon or can be rfd transferred for £35. Thank you

    .20 practical

    Great round baldie built mine on rem with border barrel 22". I would do the same Again but lighter barrel. Ai mags. I prefer sierra 39gr or 32gr. Redding fl Bushing die and Forster 223 seater. Lapua 223 brass. Accurate full blown or reduced loads. Easy to live with and works

    New to firearms, have a question.

    I use 17hmr for foxes up to 100yds usually whilst lamping head or neck shot and not a problem but always ready for a follow up shot. Not all my land is suitable for 223. 17hmr ammo available locally where as 22wmr is not. 22wmr will exit head and will ricochet. 30gr hornady vmax best performance just finding it become an issue. Tried 17 hornet and similar but have returned to 223/20 practical options but 17 hmr sako quad gets more use.
  13. I have Weaver T36 rifle scope for sale. The scope has a fine cross hair with dot reticle, capped resettable 1/8 moa target turrets and adjustable focus on the objective lens. The body is 25mm diameter and stamped as made in Japan. The length is 390mm and weight 1lb 1oz. It is supplied with the screw in lens caps. All in good order and no damage. £330 with postage and packing to UK address. Thank you. Sold. Thank you everyone.
