  1. Oh well, there's light on the horizon. I think they originally flagged an opening at the end of July or August if I remember correctly. (I'd hate to think all the golfers were getting the jump on us!)

    Why we do this

    Gets me out of the way of my wife when, seemingly, I've upset her!☺️ Seriously though, in a way I do quite enjoy it, locked away in my "man cave" and having a solo conversation! Message to KABOOM: I was meant to be up your way in Wyoming in a couple of weeks time.......Ah well, maybe next year?
  3. Can I suggest you contact Alison at Wildcat. A very friendly lady who'll let you know everything you need to know. BTW. I have a Predator 12 on my .308 and I rate it highly. All the best.

    Bullet Surface Texture

    Couldn't have explained it better myself! As for surface texture, my guess would be that its the actual shape of the bullet that the biggest contributor to aerodynamic performance. Wouldn't putting a texture on the surface, as opposed to a smooth finish, just impair it? That said, I've heard that the dimples in a golf ball apparently aid in its flight.

    Bullet Surface Texture

    My thought would be that nearly all copper objects machined are shiny (just think of copper plumbing tubes & fittings, copper wire etc.) because (a) they're newly made. (b) they are boxed immediately after production, helping to prevent oxidisation on the material. I rather doubt that they're actually "polished".

    Bullet Surface Texture

    Is it not the case that while "driving bands" are made of a soft metal, like copper or similar, the shell casing itself is much harder - steel perhaps, thereby containing the bursting charge to a higher pressure, and also steel on steel would wreck the barrel rifling after a few rounds. I'm not an expert on this, just working with common sense.

    Bringing back bullets from U.S.

    Ok. Thanks for the heads up fella's, I do agree, it's better safe than sorry.
  8. I know this question has been asked a few times over the years, but can anyone tell me the legality of bringing back bullets (heads, obviously) from the States? I'm heading there in a few months on a road trip and just wondered if its permitted to bring back a box or two of bullets in the luggage hold. Is it a definite yes, or a definite NO NO! Cheers all.
  9. Hello Tommy, sorry for getting back to you late. PM sent.
  10. Hi. Is that £850 posted to the mainland (London area)? If so, I'll have it!
  11. What is the barrel length & profile mate?
