    Semi Custom 22lr

    Hi Colin......definitely give Steve a call. He's your man 👍 Regards, Rob.
  2. If Baldie isn't doing his any more then contact Steve Kershaw....last time i spoke to him he had a drawer full of the springs and spacers needed for the conversion. Regards, Rob.
  3. Contact Baldie on here (Valkyrie Rifles) he did mine, also Steve Kershaw has some conversion kits as well. Regards, Rob.

    Dies & Brass For A 6mm BR

    Hi..... I've got a set of almost brand new (less than 50 rounds) Redding 6mm BR Rem if they're any good to you ? Pm me if interested. Regards, Rob.

    Stainless pins for tumbling

    Pretty sure Spud has them........I got mine off him 12 months ago. Regards, Rob.

    .243 87gr Vmax. Which powder

    I've also shot this bullet with great effect from a 24" barrel (not a Tikka though) 243. Also used N160 with around 43grns of powder (I think !) which helped to preserve barrel life (N150 may be a little hot ?). Myself and my cousin had the same configuration and his eventually went south after 4000+ rounds..........I got bored with mine and swapped it for a 6BR ! Regards, Rob.

    .243 comparisons to 6br

    I've owned and shot both. Both were on a Stiller single shot action and unusually with the same barrel. Initially chambered in 243Ackley and then re-chambered to 6BR when I fell out of love with the 243..........I then fell out of love with the 6BR and have had the action barrelled in a 284. I personally found absolutely no accuracy difference between the two chambering. Obviously the 243Ackley held much more powder and was therefore faster than the BR with the same bullet (85grn game kings) which resulted in not a lot more than a few less clicks of elevation ! I've got to buck the trend here and say I did not particularly enjoy shooting the 6BR.....nothing to do with the case per se as i've got a 22BR and absolutely love that.....I just couldn't fall in love with it. I know the current thinking is that the short/fat case is inherently more accurate and that may be so in the world of benchrest shooting but I personally think in a hunting application you won't find any difference..........just my opinion for what it's worth. Regards, Rob.

    22 BR velocity loss

    Hi Lee, Berger manual predicts 31fps loss per inch from 24" downwards. I shoot 50/52 grain through my 20" Shillen barrel and get 3650 fps.....more than enough in my opinion ! 22BR with relatively fast powder will be fully burned by 16" (or so I'm reliably informed by the 'Smith who built the gun) so 20" barrel is fine. Mine is a very heavy profile and has almost no recoil. I love it ! Regards, Rob.

    I have an AI Ax chassis with 20" Bartlein barrel barrel, built by Steve Kershaw.......I absolutely love the cartridge and the build. I use 32grn of N135 behind either 50grn V-max or 52grn Berger....both shoot great groups at around 3650fps. Couldn't be happier Regards, Rob.

    Barrel blanks

    Might be worth a phonecall to Steve Kershaw ?

    Short Action Defiance.

    I think Steve Kershaw may have them in stock too 👍👍

    Definitely agree with the above........got to be marginal on rats at 100yds. If you're static with a great rest and solid comfortable position then give it a go, but if you're wandering around or shooting out of, or off the bonnet of a vehicle, then too many variables at 100 yds with the semi auto........probably marginal IMO with a 22lr of any flavour. Regards, Rob.

    .284/7mm bullet choice ??

    Thanks Scotch Egg.......I had considered the ELD-X and they're readily available. Have you used them for foxing ? Do they expand well enough ? Regards, Rob.
  14. Rob1562


    I had one of these and used it regularly for ratting and rabbiting. I think it was the 16" carbon barrel version and was very accurate with most ammunition, best being Eley I seem to remember.....it would shoot 1" groups at 100yds if I concentrated and did my bit but average was around 1.5-2.0". I don't have it any more as I don't have the time to use it, I remember it would feed well with the 10 round mags but struggled with the larger 30 round mags.....I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one, but the usual caveats apply if buying secondhand..........enjoy ! Regards, Rob.

    .284/7mm bullet choice ??

    Looking for advice/experience please. I'm having a .284 built with a 26" barrel in 1:9 twist, on a Stiller Predator single shot action, so no issues with feeding/OAL. I'd like to shoot a bullet in the 150-180grn range, but here's the issue...........I'd like to shoot longish range (up to 1000yds) on paper/steel but also use it for hunting, mainly UK deer and also a bit of foxing/varminting. My thoughts were initially with the Berger VLD family but now considering 160grn Sierra TMK. Anyone got any experience or advice, or am I looking for a Holy Grail bullet that doesn't exist ?? Regards, Rob.
