  1. You know when!!

    The seller has 100% +ve feedback
  2. ear defenders

    You'll never get a perforation from that sort of small arms fire. Artillery close up is a different matter..
  3. ATACR vs Razor AMG

    You'd go a long way to find a more rugged scope than an ATAC-R. Built like the proverbial..
  4. Tika T3 drawing

    You about Edi?
  5. Look at this off AccurateShooter Daily Forum: Nikon have just released two new models and at face value, they seem definitely worth considering.
  6. Barnes 165 and Varget Help

    The ADI website shows Varget (AR2208) loads for 165s: http://www.adi-powders.com.au/handloaders/rifle.asp?Calibre=30-06+Springfield Looks like you can get high 2800s with 165s
  7. AMP Annealer - Aztec Upgrade

    Had a read through of the current SF thread on AMP and here's what the makers have said: "...Our recent reveal of the AZTEC mode has caused quite a stir and now that we have a moment we would like to clear up some of the misconceptions and assumptions we have noticed. 1. AZTEC mode is NOT a firmware upgrade nor a patch to the existing software. (We are aware that we called it such when we made our original Facebook post and that we referred to it as an "update" in the video but this is simply not the case. We have amended the original Facebook post to reflect this. "
  8. 6mmbr which primer

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the 450 primer. It's known to work well in 6BR. I prefer to use the same primer in my BR and the 6- and 6.5x47s. Keeps it simple and it works.
  9. 'Low mag' scopes...

    If the brief is ".222, slim profile, close and up to 200yds", I'd be thinking something like a 2.5-8x36 VX-3. I have one on a bush deer rifle and they're very flexible yet compact
  10. I've spent a lot of time amongst shooters in the US and have never heard the term "heads" used once. I've only ever seen it used (erroneously in my opinion) on this forum
  11. Varminting in Australia

    I'd suggest this claim is mere wishful thinking. Short of straight chemical poisoning or mechanical destruction (ie, bullets), organisms have a remarkable ability to develop resistance and often full immunity given enough time. As they say, time will tell
  12. Varminting in Australia

    Rabbits here in NZ have made a (temporary) comeback. They were decimated about a decade ago when some farmers illegally introduced RCD (Calici virus) but did it in a half-@ssed fashion which delivered a weakened strain. Rabbits have subsequently developed a high degree of resistance to it and it's now pretty useless. Our cat has dismembered two small rabbits (inside the house) in the last week. Gov't plans are afoot to release a more potent strain in the near future. Both the cat and myself will be pretty unhappy when this happens.
  13. Power outage - a tidy solution...

    Deceptive- there's 5kW of PV panels on the roof
  14. Power outage - a tidy solution...

    (followup on old thread) Moved into the new house a few weeks back. Ran a test of the gen connected and it seems sweet. Simply plug it in, turn it on then turn a rotary switch on the exterior switch board from "Mains" to Off then "Gen". Pretty damn simple it seems.
  15. .222 reduced varminting load

    The 35 V-Max will certainly expand well as they manage that at Hornet vels. Just curious- why reduced loads in a Trebly?? It's hardly a Swift, even at full throttle
