  1. They are stitched in, it’s a bit of a pain.

    New Tract Toric UHD 4.5-30x56 - thoughts?

    The cheapest one as I assumed customs would be on top.

    I purchased the 4-20x50, it’s an excellent scope, I had a huge amount of support from John with import and export. They are very helpful when you loose zero stop screws etc and just send them out. You will have to pay customs fees somehow. I genuinely felt that they wanted you to be happy with the product. I would consider buying another.
  4. Lovely, all the best with the sale.
  5. Set of 34mm warne fixed pic rings, all parts. No box but good condition. £40
  6. 238 6mm VLD 115grain target & 90 115grain VLD hunting. £90 plus postage for the lot. any questions just ask. Advertised elsewhere.
  7. I will stop being grumpy, fair play to them!
  8. There are adapters that cost a fiver a pop, bushwear sell them. I find this proprietary nonsense really frustrating as I’d quite like to be able to use any harness I want after forking out considerable sums for the binos. They could at least be included. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323986277794
  9. Is Eskadale muir range not planned to close anyway and the new range that’s being built to take over in April? Mark was taking people round it last Saturday. It would certainly be a real shame to loose the opportunity to use this sort of facility.
  10. many thanks arrived in pristine condition. well cared for brass.
  11. You do not seem to be able to get pms

    6mm bullet choice

    There are plenty of more experienced folk to comment but I have a 243 and use 108eldm bullets at 2850fp. It is great fun, performs consistently until it goes subsonic . I have got a 1/8 bartlein barrel from dolphin that shoots far better than I can hope to. with regards to expansion very difficult to say. I use 103 eld x bullets and they are also excellent but were far more expensive at time of purchase so I only use them for stalking ( 2880fps). Things I have shot have fallen over and that has been that, appreciate others may have a different experience. honestly I think the smaller the calibre you can use for the job the better. The joy of using far less powder and cheaper bullets as the chap using the 338 next to you curses after every shot at the same target is fairly unique. appreciate the 243 isn’t fashionable but it does work. If I had a 223 or 224 valk that could do the same job then I would use that.
