  1. We too would suggest trying the bullets on offer from MME - http://mmeriflebullets.co.uk The Wimbledon Match are awesome value for a 308, and the Mistral-T our preference in .338
  2. We're banned from the supermarket after that ikkle incident that caused their computerised tills to crash when we waved our head back and forwards vigorously in front of the bar code scanner...
  3. We're not sure about that, ooman. They try and shoot us if we go to get a pint of milk...
  4. A few days later, whilst on a crusade to Britain... Greta planted her hands firmly on the tarmac and waited for the pine resin to set . It wasn’t quite as good as the isocyanate adhesives that she’d previously used but it was natural, from a sustainable resource, and would work well enough. She could already feel the terpene oils within it reacting with the tarmac and making it difficult to raise her hands. A job done well enough. “Oh dear,” said her fairy godmother, appearing in a puff of smoke. Greta scowled, she wasn’t wholly sure that the smoke didn’t contain lots
  5. Exactly, oomans, who needs petrol? One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth. She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks. “What’s this?” she asked. “Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother. “What happened to the carpet?” she asked. “The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,”
  6. Big Al, We're a subterranean creature, so we compete at the lower levels...
  7. We accept a whole system accuracy of 0.5 MoA at 600 mards, and 1 MoA at 1,000 yards. At 2,000 + we find hitting the target satisfactory. Our skill at reading wind is far more of a problem than variations due to temperature. For coping with the latter, if it ever becomes a problem, we'll walk shots onto target. We're a recreational shooter, not a one shot / one kill intergalactic range sniper...
  8. We don't look too closely: we're satisfied that our loads do go off, reliably, and that they are repeatable. We're the link in this percussive train, not our components nor guns...
  9. We've converted almost wholly to RS powders and rather like them. The ones we use most are 50, 52 , 62 and 76, and we can't say that we have noticed a difference between batches though we tend not to be running any of our loads at the upper limits of the recipe books where such things might matter more...
