    What an awesome husband... 😁 😅 😅

    Yet another T3

    Indeed. Baldie's Cerakoting is perfection indeed and the T3s are superb rifles, and when coupled with a British Sassen barrel, I can't imagine anything better.

    Online shopping moan 🤔

    Yes, that (or similar) retailer is no longer on my list of suppliers, despite offering free delivery....
  4. Yep. I did the same thing a few months ago. No hassle with Jacksons. IIRC, posted on a Tues and back to me Thurs of the same week!

    Sad news: Bradders.

    Indeed. During the CSR Imperial, on what was probably one of the hottest days of the competition and when he was clearly feeling and looking awful, Mark was seen in the middle of the Century 300 yd car park adjusting triggers on rifles which hadn't passed the strictly enforced trigger weight test. The 3 or 4 that I saw him do needed the whole trigger blocks to be taken out, dismantled and the springs manually adjusted/bent and then reassembled, not a job for an amateur in the middle of a car park and immediately before a competition. And it wasn't only Bradley built rifles that he was working on, in fact most I saw weren't Bradley Arms rifles. But it didn't matter who the punters had bought their rifles from, Mark made sure that the shooters could legitimately shoot in the CSR competitions. What a man. A legend and as others have said, one of the most honest, straight speaking and decent people that I've ever known. And the Bradley Arms company will live on. Mark (and others) has trained up a bright young engineer, who is also one of the top CSR shots, to keep the quality and reliability of BAR continuing.

    Waterproof Trousers

    I'm after a pair too and the main requirement is that I can adopt the sitting position on a pissing wet day and not get my backside soaked. The old Regatta cheapies have done OK for a few seasons but I will need something for the new shooting season. Will the above recommendations remain waterproof under 'pressure' ? 😉

    cut and crown

    My last rifle to go through the London proof house has the proof marks at the muzzle end of the barrel. Any shortening of my barrel would be removing the existing proof marks! Sneaky....
  8. Hi John, I'll take the 6.5 one please. Reverting to PM...
  9. Update. I was using the Minox at the weekend with a good sturdy tripod and it was fine at 300 yds for viewing .308 holes. The absence of vibration was a huge help.... Thanks again for all the comments.

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    Ha-ha. I see APC Pure sell sodium nitrite freely on eBay.... 132715337108 Albeit somewhat more expensive than on their website.

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    Thanks for that, very useful to know. Dude did say to me that they tend to deal only with companies or words to that effect. They've taken the sodium nitrite off my order and are sending me the rest. eBay, here I come!

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    45% of course, sodium nitrate is 5%. Wonder if anyone else was 'refused'. They did send me a form to complete but that asks me my company details..

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    Anyone else had any issues with buying these salts from APC Pure? I've just put an order in for these and I've had an email back saying they won't supply sodium nitrite unless I'm a limited company and a follow up phone call to them didn't help - PS - I see it's apparently easily available from eBay and since it's only a minor 'ingredient' to the mix, I don't need much but still curious as to if anyone else had an issue with being supplied by APC Pure.
  14. I believe that Josh's rifle/barrel did an outstanding job up at the Precision Long Range Rifle League in Gardner's at the weekend. Very impressive scores with Josh and his barrel scoring 91 points, that is 21 points more than his nearest competitor. These barrels can clearly shoot well under the toughest of conditions. And it is clear that they can more than hold their own with loads of AI rifles in this match as well. I know where I'm going for my next barrel...
  15. Mik is running in the NRA council elections so if you're a member of the NRA....... I'm certainly voting for him. https://nra.org.uk/?s=election
