  5. FOR SALE:- MARCH 10x-60 x 52MM Model No - D60V52TM Serial No - X623 Second Focal Plane Elevation Zero Stop 60 MOA Elevation & 40 MOA Windage 1/8 MOA Adjustments MTR-1 Retricle also includes a set of "THIRD EYE" Mounts £1650 ONO Dear Members, I purchased this scope new from Stuart Anselm at Osprey Rifles and Its been on my competition .308 F-Class F/TR rifle ever since. Its in good working order, been very well looked after and has served me well at the Club, GBFCA League and Team GB F/TR International level. Comes in its original box with sun shade, mirage disc, lens covers and the stated "Third Eye Tactical" mounts so you have a complete package that's good to go. I must make you aware that it has a very small and faint scratch on the front underside of the scope body but it's very hard to see and there are slight usage marks on both turret screws from using a screw driver and not a coin which was a quick lesson learnt. Reason for sale:- I want to upgrade to the newest March and in the mean time was lucky enough to win a new competition Nightforce at this years F-Class World Championships in Canada so I'm crossing over to the dark side for a bit and giving that a go till I have the funds for my new March. I've taken several close up pictures of my scope but can't upload the pictures as there all to big a file for this forum so if your seriously interested and want pictures, please email me at richsjones@hotmail.co.uk and I'll send them to you. I'm hard to catch for a conversation as I drive for a living but if you have any questions and want a fast response, please text me on my mobile:- 07970 060037 and I'll get back to you with the answers at first chance. This scope is also advertised for sale elsewhere and my preferred method of payment would be via bank transfer. Kind Regards, Richie
  6. Hi All, My March scope is now sold and I'm just waiting on some final details to complete the sale. Thanks for all the enquiries and I hope to see some of you on the firing point soon. Regards, Richie

Can I please urge everyone to fill in there Individual/Team entry forms with all the details requested so we can provide Altcar Ranges with all the information they require and also make it easier for me to keep records of who's shooting what and with what team. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any answers, Kind Regards - Richie.

  9. I have my old trusty rusty SBS "Spanish Astra" 32" barrel Full and 3/4 chokes..Had it 18yrs and cost my Dad £80 back in the day. It's been run over, dropped in several ditches including one river,seen daily use in the worst of conditions and spent most of its life caked in mud and wheat. Never and I mean Never has it jammed, not ejected or had to be looked at by a gunsmith. Its accounted for more game and vermin than I care to remember and still to this day from a choice of several others higher value (AYA No2,W&S and BSA) shotguns in my cabinet wins hands down every time. Couldn't speak more highly of this true bargin basement work horse. I have looked after it with regular cleans but if you seen it, it's obvious it's had a hard life ha ha. A true keepers gun.. See them pop up in my local gun shop every now and again and there still under a ton and I'd imagine dismissed.

    THE 2015 - ALL DISTANCE CHALLENGE

    Cheers John - We're all glad you enjoyed yourself. I was going to say I'll probably see you at Diggle for the last 1000 on the 29th Nov but then remembered it's my wedding anniversary so I best swerve it in order to keep the peace. I will be there on the 12th Dec though so will hopefully catch everyone then.

    THE 2015 - ALL DISTANCE CHALLENGE

    I want to thank everyone who took the time out to come and compete at Altcar over the weekend. You really have done me proud. Credit to everyone for persevering in some seriously crapy weather conditions. Like with all these shooting events, they take lot of planning and all the 101 came together and put in there all and that's all you can ask so I hope you can all take something away from it and enjoyed yourselves. It's a learning curve and we already want to come back bigger and better next year and have plans in motion. I want to apologise to the few that were effected in the first match by the stoppage. It wasn't ideal but our start times and stoppage times were governed by Range Control (For good reasons) and maybe on a dryer day we would of got through everyone quicker as our markers did struggle spotting the smaller Open calibers on wet targets. Which now brings me onto our markers. They done a fantastic job considering the conditions and inexperience most of them have so thankyou for being patient with them. I want to congratulate all those who come away with the awards (Laurie I'll make sure your Trophie finds it new home) and I really hope we can get you all back to Altcar and the home of the 101RC next year. The season isn't over yet and no doubt I'll see some of you at Diggle, but for those who I don't, I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year. Richie

    Hi All, Competition D-Day is fast approaching and fine weather has been booked for the full weekend so alls good on that front. I'll route out a few of you at Bisley over the weekend as I still need a couple of competitors full names, addresses and vehicle Reg in order for you to gain access onto Altcar Ranges.

Competitor stats so far:- 63 Entries - Saturday. 14 Teams - Sundays. I like even numbers so I'm looking for an F/TR shooter to join the mix but mainly for one of the teams on Sunday.

    THE 2015 - ALL DISTANCE CHALLENGE

    Hi Ian, I will go out of my way to accommodate any individuals or teams who want to shoot at our weekend event. The Celtic Challenge arrived at my door slightly fragmented so we have changed it to a Rutland Teams comp to bring more shooters on board. Everyone will be competing for the same awards in F-Open/F/TR and F-Sporter and will be able to gain "Rutland Teams Celtic Challenge Champion" status. What I have done is got a couple of extra awards which will be awarded to the highest scoring F/TR Team between (2 of the original 3 teams) the official Welsh and NIRA team. If you interested in either of our events can you let me know asap as I'm starting to plan all the logistics for both days now. Take Care - Richie

    THE 2015 - ALL DISTANCE CHALLENGE

    Hi Jim, It would make life easier if all teams had a registered keeper and there will be 5 awards for each class on offer but it's not a biggy. when I've shot in teams of 4..4th shooter can score first and swap duty with the 1st shooter off the point After his string.
