    Northern Shooting Show at Harrogate.

    My son and myself had two half days at the show . We had also been to the Brit Shooting show. I liked the Northern show much better. Plenty stands with venison to eat or try. All more country orientated. Much more space in the halls. Optics could be field tested, at least some of them. We met Vince for the first time, the Form guys and old friends like John from DCR with a fine display, John Dean from Aim, Bently from Vortex, Jason Doyle, finally met Andy Mass (Ronin) face to face + a few more. Overall I thought it was a bit "classier" and people seemed more relaxed or happier than at the NEC show. Weather was fantastic which helps of course. Lucky to get a fantastic room in Harrogate at very reasonable rates. edi

    6.5 Creedmoor v 6.5 Swede

    They mentioned world wide shipping. I have never ordered there before, just thought a great price. Recon as an RFD easier to import. edi

    Amazing group!

    Mole, hope to make it over to the show this weekend, would like to see the gear. No such a thing as an easy competition. Can't be easy for everyone. edi

    Amazing group!

    I also think fantastic result. I don't think it is hard to understand that one is shooting a group and not a specific spot on a target. The way to go if one wants to see the potential of a rifle/load/scope/man on that day. Some on forums want statistic sample sizes so large the barrel is shot out before one has proven accuracy or group size. One has to be realistic. edi

    Tikka 260 T3x odd groupings

    Try a different scope. Could be a loose lens. Happens to the best of them. edi

    Tikka T3 actions screws Wanted

    Only M6, you should find the right shape in an engineering shop. Need to adjust to correct length anyway. Always leave the bolt out when trying out/ screwing in new/ too long action screws. edi
  12. Recon it's the customers own fault.... the quality of a rifle is measured by the gap in the barrel channel. The smaller the gap and the more equal sided to side the better the rifle is. The easy way to achieve this is to pressure bed a barrel. The steel barrel will bend a crooked stock straight. Just have to invent some voodoo about how magically this pressure bedding improves accuracy. Injection moulded plastic rifle stocks are just about impossible to get 100% straight. The process is not stable, not all the time. Keeping this in mind... if one removes the pressure point one would also need to open the barrel channel. A pressure bed, transfers pressure put on a forend 1:1 onto the barrel... simple physics. If you have a 5kg rifle laying up on the forend and on the rear bag rider you might have 2-3kg pressure on the barrel. not nothing. There is really no disadvantage to a much too large barrel channel. edi

    New Tikka rimfire

    A young design/cnc engineer that makes parts for us was already looking at the idea of converting an AICS type mag housing that could take up the 17hmr/22lr mag. This could then be used in chassis. Pretty sure someone will come up with a solution. At the moment it would only work with a stock that can take a T3 floor plate. Even the CTR inlet would do apart from a little gap on the sides of the 22lr floor plate. Chassis is so yesterday... edi
  14. I had a look at their gear this year at the IWA. I had also fitted two flush fitting gun smith mounts on our foxing rifle. One just in front of the bottom metal mainly for tripod use and the other up front. The good thing is that the underside of the stock has nothing sticking out and one can shoot off bags or high seat windows without a swivel stud catching. The lightweight bipod can be carried in a pocket until needed. I have the Javelin which is the pocket version as well as the a Spartan 300 which can fold up and stay on the rifle. All very good, well made and light. The only thing I am not mad about is the twist turn fix of the carbon tubes. Once adjusted they are not too bad but I think there might be a better solution on the way. Spartan are a very innovative crowd and will keep improving the product. edi

    Separated case head remover

    In the field, strong fence wire cut with leatherman, bend a hook with the sharp end showing outwards. Adjust so that the hook is slightly larger than the inside of case. Push in and sharp end will dig into brass. Just pull out the case. Got me out of trouble once. edi
