  1. Indeed, Farage and Co should be incarcerated in the Tower for their part in this, a no deal brexit will cause havoc for years to come

    Right hand shooters with left hand actions

    In the unlikely event that I can afford to get a rifle built, I’d be very tempted to start with a LH action. My shooting is exclusively off a bipod/tripod and after cycling the bolt, it’s almost like starting again after every shot. Point taken about resale value, though, if only we didn’t have the ‘need’ to chop and change so often.

    Gerber Strongarm, you could batten firewood til the cows come home and afterwards, bash zombies with the other end.
  4. Do any right handed shooters use a left handed action in an ambidextrous stock? Theoretically, you could maintain all critical contact with the rifle and keep your sight picture, whilst cycling the bolt, even better if using a Kahles 624/525, with LH windage, everything could be done with your free hand. Possibly common practice in some disciplines, just never heard of it.
  5. If you’re sure you’re going to stick to 200 yds, then .223/.222 is perfect, but if you might get a taste for longer range in the future, it may be a good idea to look at a larger calibre, a 6mm or 6.5mm, still not .308. As for a scope, if you can stretch to £500, you might pick up a Sightron S3. Always worth spending as much as you can afford on the scope. good luck
  6. If you don’t mind me asking, why do you want a .308 for targets at 100m - 200m? There are many calibres much better suited to short range targets, in fact most. Unless you plan on shooting deer as well, it might be worth having a re think.
  7. They are the HD 5000, I’ll try them out on a more stable platform, but as with you, 1000yds is ample. Thank you for the clarification
  8. No problem, just if anyone only wants the tripod and ball head.
  9. If you were to sell separately, how much would you want for the arca clamp? Thanks
  10. I think I accidentally set it on HCD mode, I didn’t know what it meant, but I’ll leave it on that, if it gives the features You mention. Still haven’t got it reading beyond 1050 m, which is beyond my range, but can’t help wondering how they can claim it ranges from 5-500 yds? Again, many thanks
  11. Thanks, One on top of two, when depressing the menu button, It takes around 8 or 9 seconds for the display to light up. I was giving up after 4 or 5, thinking it was faulty. Cheers
  12. Maybe I’m not depressing the button for long enough, I’ll try again, thanks for that.
  13. I bought a 2nd hand Vortex Fury and the mode button does nothing when pressed. I’m not too concerned as the Vortex warranty is exceptional, but not sure if I’m missing anything. What should it show when pressed? Thanks
