    Sound Moderation

    Hi there very happy with 2 ase dual rimfire mods as are easily taken apart to clean and have a low profile . Although heavy they balance the short barrels nicely . centre fire wise it’s an AI ally mod very good at moderating the 308 and very light it doesn’t change point of impact. Quality of materials and well cut threads are what I’d be looking for and if alloy is used a stainless first baffle or bush would be good but this then mixes metals causing galvanic action if not kept dry . A lightweight all stainless take apart mod would be ideal . Also spanner flats on the thread bush in case it gets stuck . Cheers

    What could go wrong?

    Just a thought have you tried leaving the scope as originally and adding an i phone adapter to the eye piece , from video s on YouTube this could bring the image nicely in line for your left eye . Elevation and wind age would stay as normal and not a 45 degree vector . Cheers Rich

    Hi Andrew quite long waiting lists for tikka . April or may next year for us in the uk . Stainless varmint version looks the ticket for foxes . Thanks for replies and stay free of COVID . Cheers Rich
  5. Hi all just a note to be careful of , minimum ranging distance ! . Use my old style Leica 10x42 for airgun shooting at short distances all ok for close ranging to match the sr pro hawke reticle as the laser is in the centre of the bridge , Swarovski s don’t laser below 30 metres as one tube has a laser and the other has the detector . The newer leicas go to 3200 m . Utting’s did a good deal years back . Stronger lasers will range more accurately and to further distances . cheers Rich

    Hi Andrew thanks for the reply and the info . Magazine size is a problem also factory ammo only . Other options were the steyr pro varmint or a custom stock Remington 700 stainless or tikka , joe west or grs stock . Not wanting anything too heavy . cheers Rich

    Hi All Thinking this might be a good fox choice in 223 , good trigger and bolt but poor stock but easy to change to Magpul prs . Anyone using one and info appreciated. thanks Richard

    Berger 175 lent or OTM

    Hi there much nicer to have a 1:10 twist than my 1:12 . I now have lots of bergers to play with and some Amax’s in 155 grain for the shorter range stuff these go very well with 42.5 to 43 grains of N135 at @ 2.234 cbto for the club 300m shoots . Stuck at home but the gardens looking great . Stay safe
  9. Here’s photo of over the top type , although it only get s used under the rifle . Allen key is to set the friction required. Spigot to fit front of AI AT 308 . cheers

    Berger 175 lent or OTM

    Hi Panda unfortunately already had my order in place when I saw tha juggs on here . Ho hum . Lots of bullets to load up when the virus passes . The 175 Berger LRBT were good at 700 yards on the milk jug at eskdalemuir and ok to 1000 when running at 2638 FPS . 600 yard max at club shoots . So it’s short range stuff ha ha . Hope Gardner’s get the new range sorted . Cheers and stay safe

    Berger 175 lent or OTM

    Have fun playing with bullets , had a nosler loading manual but gave it away to a mate think it covered the rdfs .just waiting for my order of new jugs to come through the post from CDSG . 500 in a box should keep me going when the virus clears up .Also got a Dandy products trickler that’s working great so should have some very well measured out powder . Stay safe cheers
  12. After reading the Brian litz books gyroscopic stability seems to be a big factor at transonic speeds so a high sg Above 1.5 means very stable . high bc doesn’t always go with stability so you need to choose a bullet that fits your barrel twist and speed . For a 1/12 “ twist lapua 155s don’t do too good but older shaped bullets such as 175/155 MatchKings do very well . So it’s a balance of bc and stability and speed along with suitable twist rate . The lapua s work great with one in ten or eleven twist so not so good in my accuracy international 308 but good in a mates Sako trg . Hybrids or secant shaped bullets look like they are happier with faster twists and the tangent type like a slower twist . Have look at the books Ballistic performance of rifle bullets you’ll be amazed at how bad and good some bullets are and be able to pick bullets that might fit your rifle without too much heartache . Cheers Rich

    Hi all finally got some Berger 175 OTM bullets , they are about 80 thou shorter than the juggernaut s so the COAL of the round will be closer to 2.82 . Closer in shape to sierra MatchKings with a long boat tail so very transonic stable . Will report back when the ranges reopen. Stay safe . Cheers Rich

    Berger Bullets - passe?

    Might be like myself . Stockpile up when there’s some available and only use them for best/ comps . Cheaper lapua for practice and upto 300 m then get the 175/185,s for the longer range days . They are very very good though .

    308 hunting loads

    Hi there only bullets I know of the ones I’ve tried that are good for hunting are the hornady Amax 155 grain , which work well with 42.5 to 43 grains of N135 at 2.8” case overall length . Cheers
