    IOR Scopes, your thoughts?

    The newer IOR Vulcan does not have the naff paint like finish,it's more the anodised finish the glass is SUPERB German Schott glass I must have dialed mine elevation/ windage thousands of times and it goes back to zero no probs..Yes mine had to go back to Romania for repair (the damage was my fault) it was returned sorted and delivered back free of charge..hope this helps cheers 👍

    IOR Scopes, your thoughts?

    I have an i.o.r 6x24x56 Vulcan had it over 2 years now ,great glass and accurate tracking.I unfortunately dropped it and damaged the windage turret OPW didn't have spares so off it went back to Romania it was returned after 11 weeks via OPW and sorted free of charge and of delivery costs with new turret and tracking check .apart from the naff paint like finished you get quality German Schott glass ..I would buy another cheers 👍

    Kestrel and the .223

    Hi guys I am lucky to have safe ground where I can shoot rabbits out to 600yrds and I use a.223 with 69gr tmks . presently I use strelok Pro with reasonable success if I do my part...my question is would I gain any benefit from using a KESTREL ballistics ? Or other than wind do any of the other factors ,temp, pressure.humidity really matter at these ranges? Thanks in advance

    GRS bifrost

    Thanks for the response guys.as you probably know GRS make left grip/right bolt in many of their laminate models ,I first enquired in the autumn of 2018 about the availability of the BIFROST in such a format for the tikka. T3 and was told early 2019 ..I emailed them in Feb to be told early April and last week was informed there were no current plans for such a model . I believe the full lefties have been available for a few months now ..Apart from milling out a right bolt recess I believe some material has to be removed for the bolt release pin. cheers

    GRS bifrost

    hi guys .well after being promised that .. grs..Were gonna release their bifrost stock in right inlet{/left grip format they now say they have no current plans of doing so .So I asked that if I bought a full left hand stock would it be just a matter of cutting out a recces for the bolt on the right side,their answer was probably but consult a gunsmith to make sure (personally I thought they would have known factually) so my question is have any of you guys had any experience of fitting a right inlet into a left stock???Thanks in advance cheers

    sabatti mrr

    Hi Guys .Thinking about treating myself to 6.5 cm and like the look of the SABATTI ROVER TACTICAL .my question is if the Mrr rifling is so great ie accurate,faster velocities, longer barrel life why don't other companies like tikka,remington, savage and winchester adopt this method?.I would like to get the opinions of any SABATTI owners ? ps sorry if this topic has already been flogged to death
