    Yeah Naa , New shooters 1st rifle use , other than a 22LR bolt gun , at 50-75yds , so I thought not bad just getting ONE shoot on the tgt , maybe the recoil was TOO much , too many things could have happened ( I was really coaching safety on new gun for him , than spotting for him ) , it was just more an experience of something bigger than his 22lr , I certainly would not over think it . And to think once I had looked at tgt , all I could think of doing as patch/mark my holes so he could have a clean tgt , I should have pulled the tgt , and replaced it with another , doesn matter the new shooter has a phone pic of the new tgt with the 1st 3 shots on it anyaway , sh%t happens .
  2. Opps , Forgot , THANKS Vectronix , you just saved me some money .
  3. I thought to start , GREAT , after looking at it , not so good , less range than my OLD Terrapin by 1k , and more disappointing is the thing is made out of Plastic , not interested , my OLD unit works fine , is alloy , ranges further & has a thread for tripods , and is the same price point , I would rather they start making the old PLRF-10/15 series again ,so for me its a big FAIL .

    Yeap , Should have a bigger front lens , and mrad finer than std 1cm , 0.5cm like the old Zeiss 72mm , actually a zeiss 72mm on a Ivey mount would maybe better .

    AI sound mod.

    From info I have heard is the AI 338 mod , does not last more than a few hundred rds if lucky , for the same money I would get a ODL TI can , its what I use on my AI AX 338LM , its 3d printed high grade TI , one piece , it fits good and snug ( unlikely to un-screw by its self which is a problem with virtually all single poiint mount cans ) , it has 2 o-rings , spaced part and once hand tight , I have not seen it unscrew/move by its self . I Have a AI 338LM can , and it looks like its a high grade aluminium , not likely to last on a 338LM , burning 100grs of powder , OK maybe on a 308 , at 45grs powder . Later Chris

    Varminting in Australia

    To gut the rabbit , used a Gerber vital , folding knife uses detachable blades like a Havalon , but cheaper & betterer , for the heavy work a Finnish puukoo , the one with the molded handle . Both awesome bits of kit .
  9. They are a good bit of kit , just be aware that they have a sensitivity setting , in normal operation it defaults to # 2 ( jacketed rifle bullets ) , they can be set for 1-11 , with 1 being the least sensitive , & 11 being very sensitive . I use # 9 for rimfire lead bullets .

    Varminting in Australia

    Looks like a FLAT version of New Zealand , awesome vid , and we have a similar prblem with rabbits being out of control in numbers . Had rabbit Adobo ( stew ) last week , very tasty , like most wild game , its a very lean meat . Later Chris
  11. I have a AI 338LM supressor , and it was 400-500 pounds , and once I got it , thought Opps , my mistake , it appears to be 100% aluminium , and have heard they last roughly 200-300 rds and get the guts blown straight out the front & then they are biffed ( the only good news in that is it pops at the front & not the side of the can ). If the 308 version is the same , I feel its not worth the money , and would look at other options , I use the Oceania , as in NZ its the same price as a AI can , But I also use quite a few MAE all SS cans , and for the money they are good value . If you are prepared to use a different brake , then maybe a AU can on a borelock brake maybe an option ie the SL7 .

    22LR speeds

    This was only 10 rds of each , but will do more to bring it to 50 - 100 total , and see if their is any real difference . But on the above data , even with out grouping it , the winner for me is the STD , as its SD is the best , and its 1/3 to 1/2 the price of the Suppressor/Subsonic here in NZ . Remember that this thru a bolt action rifle , if you run this thru a semi-auto the speeds will be approx 70 fps less , mainly due to larger chamber spec , which would mean it the STD ammo would be subsonic .

    22LR speeds

    Barrel is 11 inches long , STD Velocity specs are 40gr lead round nose @ 1070 fps Subsonic specs are 40gr lead hollow point @ 1050 fps Suppressor specs are 45gr lead hollow point @ 970 fps
