    Broken Sunshade on Cadwell Chrono

    thanks will give that a go !
  2. So i have managed to snap an end of one of the sunshades for my Cadwell chrono - before anyone asks ... No i did not shoot it !! I managed to drop the bag and the end snapped off ! annoyingly its where the small metal pole goes to attach to the body of the chrono. I had a look on line for spares, but all i could seem to find is the shades with the lighting kit as well, which is not really what i want, i just want the basic one to replace the broken shade !! anyone know where i can just get basic replacement cadwell shades ? Ive also tried to glue the end on, used two "super glues" to no avail, as soon as you put a bit of pressure on it, as it would be when under tension having the metal pole in it and attached to the chrono the join breaks again, I am assuming perhaps somebody has done similar in the past ? any tips on decent bonding material that could keep the thing together !! cheers Neil

    223 load Vihtavuori N135 or n130

    I use 24.5gr N140 using 69gr Sierra tipped match kings out of my Ruger Predator, happy with results sub MOA at 100 meters, also good fox load !

    Nosler 165gr Ballistic tip

    Hi should be getting some Nosler 165gr ballistic tip bullets in .308 soon, looking to load with N140, will be shooting out of a Gen 1 Ruger precession, 20" barrel, 1 in 10 twist, anyone loaded similar ? thinking of starting around 39.5gr and working up in .5 to around 43, according to Nosler data 42.5 was the most accurate when tested with N140 thanks Neil
  5. 5/8 -18 UNF and 5/8 - 24 UNEF is there a difference ? looking to buy a moderator for my .308 it used to have a muzzle brake that had a 5/8 - 24 UNEF bushing on it to fit onto the threaded barrel, if i get a mod with 5/8 18 UNF will it fit my thread ? thanks Neil

    .308 loads for Ruger Precision

    Thanks chaps, i dont intend to shoot fox with the .308, my FAC is open for .223, .22WMR and S1shotgun for all quarry, but currently the .308 is only for range work, but i have been offered 2 permissions lately with deer and boar on, so might employ the .308 for that, as i dont really have the room for another rifle ! primarily its my range gun down at Hythe and Lydd ranges. But i am not sure if i can use the .308 for quarry, i live in Kent and somebody stated Kent were not keen on people using .308 for hunting over land ? i will enquire to see if i can get that caliber on my open ticket as well, if not will still hand load for the ranges, and have a hard decision on what rifle to replace with a .243 ! LOL

    .308 loads for Ruger Precision

    Hi will be looking to get some Lee .308 dies soon to start home loading this caliber,at present just doing .223. I am using N140 for my .223 and my cunning plan was to use this as well for .308. Has anyone got any recommendations for N140 in a Ruger Precision ? with what bullet ? i am using tipped match kings for my .223 and liking them very much (use both for range and foxing) so was perhaps considering them for the .308 as well ? cheers Neil

    Stock upgrade for Ruger American predator .223

    looking at the magpul site, this would appear to solve the problem !! https://magpul.com/firearm-accessories/pmags/pmag105-56ac.html looks like its not quite out yet, but the blurb said it has been made to address the feeding issue with the hunter stock and .223 , best start saving my penny's !!

    Stock upgrade for Ruger American predator .223

    https://www.blackrifle.co.uk/Magpul-Hunter-American-Stock-Ruger-American-p/mag931.htm above sells it, but appears out of stock at present, however like i said , i think they will no work with a .223 predator for some reason, which is fairly annoying !

    22-250 Sierra 69gr TMKs

    it it helps at all 69gr tipped match kings shoot really well out of my .223 ruger predator. It has 1 in 8 twist, i am loading 24.5 gr N140, get sub MOA 5 round groups at 100 meters, cheers Neil
  13. Hi I am pondering if i should upgrade the stock on my Ruger American predator .223 . I read an article on thames valley guns where he upraded his .308 predator using the Magpul hunter stock, he reported a significant gain in accuracy, I am quite happy with the current accuracy of mine, sub MOA (just) at 100 meters, using home loads 24.5gr N140 with 69 gr Sierra Tipped Match kings, but was wondering if i could squeeze a little more out of it, plus it woudl be nice to have a more adjustable stock. However not sure what stock would be suitable ? it would appear that the Magpul stock is not suitable for a .223 rifle ? also looked at boyds but was not sure what would be suitable. So has anyone upgraded a .223 predator ? if so using what stock. Thanks Neil

    Black IR for NV

    Have you looked at the new VSCEL lasers that come in 940? i use on for my spotter, the thinking behind that being i use the spotter the most when hunting, scanning around looking for a target, so i want that to be the most "invisible" i have a 850 laser for the rifle, but only turn that one when i am about to take a shot. have a look at night vision store black sun dark engine covert IR, this is the one i use, they claim you can still get 300 yards with it, which in my experience is about correct http://www.nightvisionstore.co.uk/black-sun-dark-engine-covert-ir-illuminator-c2x28497639
