    John Carr/ apex ZENITH action

    Well, you are in the right area - why not go and see John - I'm sure he'll help.

    Diggle Egg Shoot

    Thanks for the offer Mike - this year, I've actually handed over the reins to Jim and Mary but hopefully we will all muck-in to help as usual.

    John Carr/ apex ZENITH action

    As I understand it, John has not stopped making his actions but, he is concentrating on the stuff that sells all the time - like his new line of rings and rails etc. which he had on display at the Shooting Show. If you seriously wanted an Apex action, I'm sure he'd make you one. The one in the pic is a right-bolt, left port with micro-port.

    John Carr/ apex ZENITH action

    I've built a rifle using an Apex action but it's a solid bottom/micro port version. I think John (Carr) got everything right with this action - tenon, built-in lug, pic rail, trigger fixing etc. Functionality is everything you would expect from a custom action.

    Diggle Egg Shoot

    The Diggle Egg shoot is only 10 days away - Bank Holiday Monday 28th May. All welcome - just turn up on the day for about 9.30am Rules? Few - any rifle/rest/calibre/rests - as long as you can carry it single-handed to the firing point. £5 entry fee plus Diggle's £15 range fee if you aren't a member. Awards for small group at each distance - 100, 300 and 500 yds plus £100 for egg breakers.

    65x47 cases

    Rule number one - never use brass that's been fired in another rifle. Get some new brass and your troubles will go away...........
  7. Obviously, back bags come in many different sizes but on average think around 15lbs when filled with Zircon or Chromite.

    Borden BRM - 6BRA

    Glad it's finished. It'd look nice with just a Hydrographics high gloss finish Al.

    US ITAR Regulations to be Relaxed

    Yep - I just read this Laurie. Let's hope it doesn't take too long.

    22 Middlestead

    I have been given a quantiy of new unfired brass in 22 Middlested. I also have a quantity of fired brass and about 50 loaded rounds. There is also a pair of Neil Jones hand dies. If anyone is contemplating a Middlested build and might be interested please email me on Vinceb@targetshooteronline.com The price will be very reasonable.

    Amazing group!

    Badger - thank God - I passed a dead badger driving up to the range today - thought it might be you. Laugh at your groups? Never - I'm just happy when someone turns up and shoots in a comp. The egg shoot is just around the corner...........

    Amazing group!

    Badger - I love a good p*ss take - you have to if you shoot at Diggle - it's a way of life! But, maybe it's a fine line between taking the p*ss and sarcasm. To be honest, I don't mind sarcasm but, I hate it when shooters knock other shooters' disciplines. We do it for fun, it's not life and death. Unfortunately, there are one or two forum members who contribute little else.

    Amazing group!

    Well, I'm pretty sure the guy put his crosshair centre of the X ring when he shot that group. Looks like he missed by about one and a half inches - which is not bad at 600 yards....... I think you should come and try our Egg Shoot badger - it's a bit nearer - 500 yds - and show us some real skill.
