    Fraudster

    Honestly. IMO the 3.5% from paypal "goods and services" is nothing compared to the piece of mind it gives that you're covered from this kind of thing. I use it pretty much every time. If you're buying something on the forum, odds are you're already getting a damn good deal!
  2. I'll take the BAD lever and XTM panels. I'll PM you now.
  3. I'll take them thanks. I'll pm you now.

    Yes please on the Bipod Will PM now
  5. Novice - Could you measure the scabbard (inc. butt cover) for me? What's the longest rifle it will take? Eberlestock only give the dims for the scabbard section I think.

    Barrel identification

    Knew you guys would know. Thanks! You can put a few rounds through it at Severnside if you're ever down that way 😁 Any thoughts on the quality of them?

    Barrel identification

    Hi folks, Challenge for you. Can anyone identify this barrel from the markings? I figure the cougar/jaguar on the end may be a trade stamp? Cheers in advance, Rem
  8. Gazza, When did you purchase the ammo from the NRA? Also which batch/year does it say on the box? They should no longer be selling the 2019 ammo and have resorted to the remains of the 2018 batch (which had it's own problems). A bit of background; The past two years of GGG have has serious issues, to the extent of people not entering the Imperial competition due to the variation in the ammunition. After investigation the 2019 batch was found to have 'some' (~1/10) overcharged primers, which was causing elongation & weakening of some the cases and in some tight chambers extractor failures. I can dig out the report if you're interested. Worth noting that it shoots extremely accurately as long as it doesn't break your rifle... For any reloading activity it's strongly advised to measure case lengths post firing and remove any that appear uncharacteristically long. The 2018 batch, while not dangerous, was found to have some non-concentric cores in the bullet heads which resulted in erroneous shots (possibly what you're observing), although I can't recall anything about anyone identifying an issue with powder weight/combination, although I'm pretty sure I've got that data somewhere, so will have a look. TlDr; I would advise against using either 2018 or 2019 GGG if you're looking for safe & accurate ammo. But also please do report your findings to the NRA as they can add it to the wealth of data the target rifle guys have gathered in various investigations. Fingers crossed for the 2020 batch... Rem
  9. Gutting if they have. Convenient range for a lot of us, as long as you could use a club to get access. I know there was the issue with larger calibers, but hadn't heard anything specific about Rogiet. If it's danger area related (the public footpath/severn), I wonder if it will effect Severnside as well? Please update if you hear anything and I'll ask around as well.

    Have you got a plan for covering the rail with some kind of cheek piece?

    Target Images

    I'll take any at the moment, may end up being a bit more selective down the line, but if you're willing to share I'll have the whole back catalogue. (Ideally without any of the analysis, just raw images) As long as shot holes/marks are clearly visible it should be of use. If it's too many to email, are the on a google drive you could share? Thanks to all the others who have already send a load through
  12. Good Morning all, I've have a favour to ask of you all. For reasons that will hopefully become clear in a few months, I am in need of lots of photos of shot targets, groups, etc. The only limiting factor is there must be something on the target that can be used to measure length (known diameter rings or spots, a known size of paper or gong etc) I give my guarantee that the images will not be republished in any way. If anyone is willing to help, could you please email mpblytma (at] gmail.com with the target images, with a note of the distance, calibre and what the identifying length is. If you could include "Target Images" in the subject it will make it a lot easier for me to sort through. Should the project work out as I hope, there's a nice freebie down the line for anyone that helps out. Feel free to DM me if you think you're able to help out. Cheers, Rem

    Sad news: Bradders.

    RIP Mark, He was always willing to help out someone new to the sport, and always a straight shooter, both with words and a rifle. Needless to say many of us shoot straighter because of his gunsmithing as well.
