    17 HMR - has it a niche ?

    Hmr is our go to rifle for nv bunny bashing. It fits in nicely between .22rf, .17 fb and .223. Still a few duff rounds out there as my mate extricated a bullet from the beginning of the rifling the other week. Probably old stock.

    .17fireball reloaders

    Hi Bob 20gn . I'll have to look up the make of cases, they were mentioned on Sharpshootinguk fb group a month or so ago. There you go, but cheap they are not having just looked. https://www.rccbrass.com/17-remington-fireball/ It might be worth trying the rem importers Raytrade as they said to me .17fb brass would be a possibility later in 2018.

    .17fireball reloaders

    Looks like your sorted Bob. I'm now using xbr8208 powder with lapua brass and rem primers (easy3980fps,19.4gn 10thou off lands). Initial I used federal primers rem brass and 4198, but I was suffering flatterned primers at well below max book load. I believe I saw there is a new supply of .17fireball brass available now if you don't want to go down the necking down route. Happy days. Neil

    squirrel eating

    I remember looking forward to a rabbit and squirrel stew I'd done in the slow cooker. By the time I'd got in from work my partner had woofed all the small pieces of 'rabbit'.

    Applier's Remorse: .22 or .25 for FAC air?!

    My mate runs a .25 wildcat at 46ftlb which is rather sweet.My .22 rapid runs at 33ftlb which is nice and flat too. But you're into a bit of money with a new fx and sorted rapids are getting rarer now.

    Hi Ian in view that you did not get the messages in order.I'm willing to stand back in the que if pork chops offer is acceptable to you.

    How many turns do you want.If your offer had been acceptable to the vendor then the scope would have been sold to you.
