    Unlike dinner partners?

    I’ve heard it and tried it but never got it to work so I put it down as rural myth.

    CB radios ... who’s playing ?

    Brilliant - I can just imagine. Sounds hilarious.

    Yes watched that one last night Bruce. Brilliant.

    Mark Felton Productions.

    Is anyone else watching Mark Felton’s short documentary series on YouTube? I’m amazed as to where he gets his information from. Great quality mini military history documentaries which more than often raise an eye brow. Just when you thought you’d heard it all! Just watched a very interesting one entitled ‘The missing Vulcan’ on the Vulcan raids on the Falkland Islands - again when I thought I’d heard it all before I actually hadn’t. Highly recommended.

    Tikka TX1 MTR 22lr

    I’m waiting for the stainless version to come out - then I’ll buy one.
  6. The 215 Hybrids would not stabilise in my 1:11 barrel. At the time I went onto the Berger site and the stabilisation calculator indicated they wouldn’t stabilise or marginal but if I remember correctly the 230 (is it the OEM?) showed that that bullet, although heavier, would. I never tried it though and went to using 185 Scenars which performed very accurately.

    More scottish bans being proposed

    I’m flabbergasted by such an ignorant view. Wow!

    7mm LRM

    I’ve been shooting a 7 Rem Mag for 20 years and never had an issue with the belt. I do have the Larry Willis die and it’s not really a problem to run the brass through it to size down to the belt.Certainly a lot easier than say neck turning for example. I’ve always found the Rem Mag to be an easy cartridge to get to shoot accurately and if you can psychologically accept the belt it’s a good option in my opinion.

    Magazine for Borden Alpine?

    You are not alone Tikka 260 - I feel your pain. 😁 I have been looking for the same for my Stillers. The easiest way to describe what I am looking for is to compare to the Sako 75 mag system (which I think is the best factory mag system going). I haven't found anything yet which is suitable. I hadn't however heard of the Curtis ones before now though. Plenty of tactical offerings out there but I'm not into tactical stuff. I just want my conventional sporters to have a DM mag system akin to the Sako 75 one.
  12. Who makes this please Triggersqueeze?
