  1. Even if some exemptions are made it still feels like an enforced and incremental retreat from current ammo will follow. The UK market already has poor ammo availability and if the market shrinks yet further how long will it be before suppliers and importers see it as non-viable? This is in addition to likely problems arising from rifling twist rates being inadequate to stabilise longer bullets. Is this lead 'problem' just another way to suffocate the sport by stealth? Nobody wants to knowingly pollute but stats and science are often 'adjusted' to suit a specific agenda.
  2. Primers like hens teeth here.....gold hens teeth!
  3. I also mandrel the I/D as my final sizing operation.
  4. Who... me? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
  5. Points taken......and money saved!๐Ÿคฃ Thanks for the inputs gents.
  6. I have always measured 'neck tension' by comparing a resized case before and after seating a bullet....ie 'neck expansion'. I note that Forster are introducing a multiple pin gauge tool to measure inside neck diameter and being a detail-freak it piqued my interest. However....I wonder about its engineering accuracy. Has anyone used certified accuracy pin gauges to measure neck I/D ? Your views on its utility? Where could I buy individual imperial pins vs sets? Your giews much appreciated.
  7. Pops....agreed that you would expect the rail to be fully compensated for the action dimensions. It was supposed to be Remmy specific......it clearly wasn't even though the fit looked ok. Thanks for the diagrams. At least I know that I uncovered the issue correctly!๐Ÿ˜€
  8. Just trying to make sure I have not misled myself! I believe from having measured my sons Rem 700 action that the front of the action is higher than the rear. So....if I install a 20 moa base am I really getting 20 moa lift at the rear because the rail should be sized at the rear to account for the front to back action height difference PLUS 20MOA or am I simply compensating in part for the action height range. I ask this because I bought the rifle for my son some years back but didn't seem to have the scope elevation range that I would have expected and had to buy an incline 1
  9. Very nice John but twice the price! ๐Ÿ˜€
  10. Vortex and Shield both do very small red dots. If you can mount them on top of scope and still see over your elevation turret then I think its better than off at 45 degrees.
  11. I bought the fishing coasters ...breakaway tackle. About ยฃ4 each and work perfectly. The cost of branded items is criminal!
