  1. 6mm calibre choice

    All these 'exotic' chamberings are fine and dandy but do nothing a .243 won't for your intended purpose. Why make life difficult? Brass, loaded rounds readily available and with a 87gn Vmax is ideal for your purpose. Loaded to sensible pressure/velocity a .243 will easily see 2000 rounds with fox shooting accuracy.
  2. Does anybody use this ballistic solver? Try as I might I cannot get it to match other apps I use namely shooter, strelok and Lapua. I use Shooter mainly and find it very good but liked the look and input for the 4DOF having watched their tutorial but simply cannot get it to match the elevation and windage corrections at longer ranges, the shooter solutions having been shot and verified out to 850 meters. How does any one else find the 4DOF app?
  3. 'Works in everything' N140 load for 6.5x47?

    Good result, might have to try that when the Varget runs out.
  4. Aluminium trigger guard

    Suppose the condition will reflect how/where the gun is used. If its a range/bench queen then i'd expect it to remain in very good condition as opposed to a field gun gathering 'patina' quickly.
  5. XLR evolution chassis ?!

    So you'd rather have a strong pound as we head slowly towards brexit?
  6. I'll take it and can arrange courier collection
  7. What distance will the Target master parallax down to?
  8. Silverstone Shooting Centre

    Skull hooker, whilst your description of the 'Gold' membership cost is accurate it is not the whole picture is it? There does appear to be alternative membership available for anyone not wanting unlimited access to the range all the time: http://www.silverstoneshootingcentre.co.uk/membership.html I have no knowledge of the shooting ground, other than it is a new facility. I would however imagine the cost implications of building/providing such a facility has been substantial and shooters need to recognise that and realise that both those and ongoing costs need to be recouped. There really does seem to be a core in some parts of the shooting community that seem to think shooting and provision for shooting should be cheap and those that provide such facility and provision should do so cheaply and without profit. Can someone explain that mentality for me?
  9. Amax Expansion.

    Lifted from Hornadys website: Perfection every time! The Hornady® A-MAX® bullet design grew from a relentless application of everything we know about ballistics and flight characteristics. After all, match shooters demand perfection from their bullets every time they step on the range. The aerodynamic secant ogive profile, the sharp pointed tip and the unequaled concentricity of the A-MAX® design give it an extremely high ballistic coefficient for near perfection in flight. NOTE. Match shooters and range use. Who cares if they expand or not. Use a bullet designed to expand if shooting quarry. It's not difficult and there are plenty available.
  10. Pulsar F155

    Ok thanks, just wondered if they were an improvement over previous front mount nv.
  11. Pulsar F155

    Does anyone have any experience on these? They attach directly to the front of the scope and are in line with the centre line of the scope so no faffing about with zeroing. I have not seen one in darkness to tell what the sight picture is like - has anyone else? Also interested in the useable range where positive ID of a fox would be.
  12. New Schmidt?

    Terry, I completely agree, merely pointing out the probably reason for the slow supply. My biggest gripe with suppliers is the lack of communication and transparency - if they are struggling to meet delivery times then communicate that to the customer. Chances are the customer will appreciate the update and choose to stay with the product. Schmidt obviously haven't got this concept.
  13. New Schmidt?

    Schmidt scopes are high quality, certainly one of, if not the best available and they are probably fulfilling military procurements ahead of civvy orders. Highly frustrating for the recreational shooter and suppliers I know but with the relative volumes I know what i'd be doing were I S&B.
