    Tubb ATR

    Looks like a fantastic piece of kit. Im a fan of David Tubb. His records speak for themselves. Best of luck with your purchase.
  2. Has it got bluetooth capabilities?

    Know your quarry, squirrels (request).

    The male squirrels make a chatting noise very similar to the noise of a magpie foraging. In breeding season this call works extremely well as the males are much more territorial. The seem to see it as a threat call from another male.
  4. I have one of the built onto a telescopic pole with a weather vane. I couldnt get mine to calibrate to strelok initially. Theres an app specifically for the meter you can download. I calibrate the compass on it then switch to strelok. The bluetooth range on it is about 10 meters. It seems to work well enough after initial compass set up. Mine is the blue one by the way.

    Youre coming into the best time of the year for them. February to march time is the best for them. A magpie call works really well if you can keep the call as short as possible. In march the males will come running along the branches towards you chattering angrily!. They will use their dray during the day if they feel threatened. I have personally seen squirrels taking songbird chicks out of nests. Probably the most rewarding air rifle shooting of all. I personally use an fx impact running at 33ft/Lb. This gun sends them flying!
  6. Did you try hornady 75 gr tap ammunition. Same bullets used as the 75 gr bthp. Shot very well in my 1-9 twist.

    Tears in Case necks

    I use these also. Although i have my trimmer motorized with a motor off a sewing machine . This has a foot control so i have 2 free hands. Very fast to operate with very consistent results.

    new .223 time

    The 69gr tmk stabilizes no problem in my 1 in 9 twist blaser lrs 2. Another very good choice is the hornady 75 gr bthp. These 2 shoot very well in my rifle.

    223 Load Tests and an unwanted surprise!

    I found my best accuracy running the 69 tmks at 3100 fps using h4895 . I used 25.7 grains of it. In my lee reloading it showed its speed at 3000 fps!. Cci 400s are a very good primer for the 223 with a very hard cup design. My blaser lrs 2 has a 24 inch barrel.

    .22 Semi-auto ammo

    plus 1 on this. i have a walther gsp carbine rifle semi auto. accuracy is up there with any bolt action 22 i have ever shot. The action in tgis rifle is very tight. about 150 rounds before i have to clean it.

    Has the .17 HMR had its day?

    always thought it was a pointless caliber. Too loud for rabbits. And marginal performance on fox.

    New Tikka rimfire

    Looks like a very good rimfire. But i think ill stick with my walther gsp carbine rifle.
