  1. Thanks for the info, my - had just bought his Meopta 8 x 56 round for me to look through. Its deffo brighter than my Bushnell 4.5 - 14 x 50 AO Scopechief i use at the moment on mt Annie 1517 hmr . The Bushy does offer the advantage of a bit of zoom to check the quarry. Im not convinced i really need to change it. What model is your scope pls I used to be indecisive, now im not so sure 😁

    17HMR what to get

    Best distance so far was last Monday evening, i had sold my Pard 008lrf &put the Whitetail Expedition 6-18 x 42 AO back on. just about to back up due to poor light, saw rabbit @ 155m & nailed it. I have had many @ 80>100. & 2 @ 138m 1 day one @ night both with the 008lrf. I have the Anschutz 1415 .22 lr & this 1517 17hmr both are lovely rifles to use.

    17HMR what to get

    Just an update i have swapped out triggers with my Anschutz 1415 .22lr, it had the 2 stage. I have also ordered ,eons ago, a light spring for the single stage from UK-Gunworks, getting it actually posted to me is proving to be a challenge for the dispatch dept of UK-Gunworks 😁

    BASC latest info on CV

    BASC, Marford Mill, Wrexham LL12 0HL Coronavirus and shooting – an update After consulting the government, BASC has updated its advice for conducting essential pest control in the UK while the current Coronavirus restrictions remain in place. In line with the Prime Minister’s statement, when making a decision on whether or not to conduct essential wildlife management, you should consider: • Is the landowner, or person responsible for giving permission, happy for you to be on the land in the current crisis? • Can you maintain effective social distancing? • Is the management involved absolutely essential? • Is there a risk that your activities could result in the emergency services being called out? For example, someone reporting shots being fired. • Should you inform the local police in advance that you are going out? If you do, secure the reference number for the call. Everyone’s circumstances are different, so individual decisions will have to be made, although the onus will be on remaining off the land. So-called ‘recreational shooting’ or taking clients shooting are ruled out at present. Be aware that you should be able to justify your decision if you are challenged by the enforcement authorities, or you may risk a fine and may put your certificate at risk. BASC has published a number of FAQs around Coronavirus and shooting. These are on the dedicated Coronavirus page on our website.
  11. Defra has reissued all the general licences in England with no significant changes to the conditions. We are still analysing the detail and will continue to update the website. Natural Resources Wales has rejected a call from Wild Justice to revoke general licences in Wales. The latest updates can be found here. Wondering why and how general licences came into being? Read our latest blog by BASC head of biodiversity Ian Danby here. For anything else on UK general licences visit our dedicated web page.
