  1. The SK flat nose match works well in my rifle, unfortunately I think theyโ€™ve stopped making it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  2. ๐Ÿ˜Ž retirement present (well 'planning on retiring present') - but don't tell the wife ๐Ÿค
  3. 200 yards is quite 'do-able', this is 20 round group shot at Orion on a bit of a wet/mildly windy day: Vudoo, Centre-X
  4. Lapua, Yes 10-60 March High master. Idea was to create a 22rf clone of my 6 Dasher, Dasher top image, 22rf Vudoo lower the 22rf uses a EraTac adjustable base for the LR comps.
  5. My club ran a 100 yard target comp yesterday on a local range. Unlimited sighters and 5 x 10 round targets. Front rest allowed but no rear support ( butt in shoulder clear of ground/ bench. Not too much wind around but time limit put pressure on. Rifles was in all down to operator interference Iโ€™m afraid ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  6. Could always use a concentricity gauge and sort your rounds as well ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. A simple gauge is a fired 223 case, pop the rf bullet into the case nose first and measure the loa. Tuners work and normally create a more round group, removes fliers in my experience. you can easy go down a rabbit hole with rfโ€™s ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Would need to have confirmed by someone in writing but I believe it is 15 kg in total of loose & loaded powder and also includes allowances for primers. There is some form or ratio if you keep BP as well as smokeless hope this link works ( but using my iPhone so possible not ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ) https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/1638/regulation/7/made
  9. Thought Iโ€™d give the sub calibre conversion a try in my 45-70. Basically a 22rf tube with an offset chamber which aligns the CF firing pin with the rim of the 22rf. SK flat nose match what I had with me seemed to go well in the 22โ€ insert barrel, better than I expected actually unfortunately Iโ€™d not put in any alternate foresight elements so the shoot-n-see target pretty much filled the foresight aperture which made things more fussy that youโ€™d want. Fun all the same ๐Ÿ˜€
  10. BBM, There are a few LR 22rf comps around, I attended a couple and was good fun and a bit of a challenge. furthest distance was 500 yards. Having your 22rf and CF configured the same makes sense especially if you are going to do any positional shooting e.g. the 'PR' shoots. 22rf top , 6mm Dasher below, 22rf has adjustable mount to go to the longer ranges I would not put 22rf as a 'trainer' as such, takes just as much effort to shoot them as well as the CF's - only advantage is its cheaper and there are more venues.
  11. Gents you cannot compare a club with a commercial range. Clubs are normally run by officers who are volunteers ie no associated costs. Also costs, such as say buying a steel target for ยฃ109 are โ€˜at costโ€™ to the club where as a business would use a value of more than double this for the same item if they have a real business model. There is always a pool of folks with sufficient spare beer tokens to pay for things and commercial operations cater for this - just look at coffee shops and iPhones Good luck with any enterprise
  12. Cheers Vince, so long as it's flat I'm Ok then? t
  13. Just beautiful Sir, Love the No.1 ( Farquhason -sp?) action and a very nice tasteful finish you have had done. Have you looked at the Hicks tuner, has worked on a couple for friends No.1's (also a simple preloaded shim fix works.) Concur with a 45-70 version being a neat idea? T
