    More scottish bans being proposed

    Popengos i can but thank you back for polite discussion ... normally turns into slanging match i understand your sporting ethics see where your coming from .... it’s a hard one to defend .... would be easier if ALL involved took birds home and used them ... some should give it up go do clays .... no interest in food. but for me and many others it the whole day and experience ...& the biodiversity and economics arguments win it for me .... lot of the grounds if shoots not there would just be overgrown with little species .... & no rural income , no small hotel or pub etc so n so forth its all about balance defiantly go to GWCT site read some of their stuff And if on Instagram check out likes of the armchair hunter etc trying to promote ethical sustainable hinting thru food and regarding your sport .... lot of antis don’t give two hoots about wildlife or sport .... they purely anti gun & don’t think ANY public should have access to guns no matter the discipline... be warned yours Paul

    ok yes the industry has had to change and rightly so .....in past game keeping was indeed a case of wipe it out . times change, attitudes change and progress hopefully is the case, biodiversity WAS maybe a byproduct of the game industry , now a days and in these days of environmental awareness its a main goal. yes there is still crap going on within the industry with regards to BOP , but its undeniable a minority and BOP numbers are better than they have beenin 10yrs plus. now to tar the whole industry with same brush isnt fair....you get one bad mechanic does that mean ALL mechanics are bad?. there is good and bad in ALL demographics of life. with regards to hares, why do you think its possible to shoot hares in these numbers ? proven time and time again there are more hares on keepered ground than un managed grounds ...incl RSPB own reserves, this includes as you all hear waders and other species etc. 1️⃣Mountain hare numbers fluctuate naturally. Every 4-15 years, the population size fluctuates from half to almost double the average population size. This is completely normal. 2️⃣ There is no national mountain hare count in the UK and no clear evidence of a population decline. 3️⃣The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) has found that mountain hares are present in good numbers on sites that the report (referred to by the RSPB) states as having zero mountain hares. 4️⃣Grouse moors benefit mountain hares. This year, a study by GWCT showed that mountain hare numbers are 35 times higher on moorland managed for grouse shooting. 5️⃣The biggest threat facing mountain hares in Scotland is the widespread fragmentation of heather moorland and predation in areas where there is no predator management. why do people ignore facts and science ? Reared birds industry ....it has its points that need to be addressed, i agree ...if you want to go shoot 50 birds but arent willing to take them home & Utilise them go shoot clays..... who eats chicken? ...ive got 8 ex battery hens rescued and i was bloody astounded at state of them and even more so that this still goes on in the UK ! reared birds / pheasants are a damn site more looked after than that i can tell you.....and in turn live a life far better or free range or chicken ive seen. It should be done with consideration to a habitat as well https://www.gwct.org.uk/advisory/guides/sustainable-gamebird-releasing/ the benefits of a well run shoot are of course biodiversity and economical , gives jobs to keepers beaters local hotels rural pubs hotels etc . Many rural places would be derelict / empty places both bilogically and socially without it. ita land use and as long as done sustainably and the meat is used, if your a meat eater how can you argue with that? leads me to hunting for "Sport" or fun.....im not going to tell you i hate what i do ...that im forced to do this only to do my bit for conservation......sorry no ....i love what i do .....stalking ....fishing.....pheasant / bird shooting . yes an animal dies....but for me thats such a small part of the day not the whole point . i may be different in that i use all game i kill for my own table ...thats the main reason for me ....so i can eat meat that i know its natural ethical & in turn had its own life and ability to go where it wanted fly or not fly etc. its own choices. the whole day is the point , the experience ...being outside ...sights smells the rain the sun the wind ...watching the other wildlife doing its thing ......and any ethical sustainable hunter isnt going to wipe out his best stock, he / she will hunt for the benefit of the species and amount there ....again proven thru time and management . yes there are bad shoots and people but dont knock those the majority who are doing a good job both for their area and part of a local economy and for the wildlife on their patch......spend a day with a grouse keeper / deer stalker or pheasant keeper worth their salt and youll meet someone with alove of the land and the animals and species on it .

    Dried food meals

    Cheaper option probably taste better either a. Cuppa soups or I hear those mugshots pasta packs are ok b. If you have a vacuum packer keep left over from home meal , like mince & tatties or stew etc and vackpak as long as bags are “ sousvide” compatible then just pan of water on camp stove and reheat .... one of those long camping forks / sporks away you go country food trust does pheasant casserole & patridge curry but need rice etc ... both in bags that can keep for a year in back of truck etc ... their ok ... not much “meat” in them due to making process I’m told . bit they contribute to homeless. Shelters etc to one for one for every one you buy ..... I had them in my truck when working in the desert in Middle East and just boiled up bit of rice to go with it paul

    I can’t believe the tsunami of shite from some on this ..... obviously havent set food on a grouse moor lately . obviously know Jack about conservation or even care it seems . take emotion out of it and look at facts and figures & science go google Shane Mahoney ... one of the greatest conservationists of our time ... his words paraphrased you don’t need to like a conservation technique but if it works to the benefit of target species or others you can’t argue with it. who hell needs anti shooting brigade when you’ve got FAC holders like this. aye you wrap yourselves up in your bubble and think your sports “safe” I’d be interested to know how many of our grouse moor “fans” eat meat ... of so where do you get it ? What conservation methods or acts have they done lately to benefit local wildlife etc? paul

    .284 win Doughnuts

    I have authorisation for .284 but I want just for hunting , plinking....not looking for any extra case prep etc. working with a damn good gun smith last few days on a job and he said just .284 reamer to saami spec ...not tight spec reamer...and no neck turning and should be fine ? i thought key to this was no neck turning ? other wise it would be Norma brass straight off. paul
  12. Hi folks have a .22-250 T3 hunter in wooden stock & as with every rifle I ever have or try can’t get sufficient cheek wield. My .25cal I have Mcmillian etc and I’m done playing with cheek risers that shift all over place or kydex & Velcro etc . just found out about KRG bravo but no Left hand inlet but I’m told people have made a slot on LH side for this . Has anybody here done this mod ? cheers Paul
  13. Hi folks I have a Sako .22-250 M591 LEFT HAND action rifle here . The barrel I’ve had bore scoped & inspected by Grant Taylor in Dundee & precious person has stored this with a mod on upright as 8” approx from muzzle down is corroded. The rest of rifling in first half of barrel is good. I’ve had rifle for good few years but not used it hard .... I always got or shooting 1-1/2” and that was good enough for minute of roe ! And I have a custom .25-06 I us a lot more. Recently I decide to try to finally find a load to sweeten this right up but couldn’t improve the group hence I got it borescoped to find barrel corrosion as described above. I was going to rebarrel this but priorities have changed. This would be ideal rebarreled or a donor action for someone Has a McMillan stock with after market adjustable kydex cheek piece fitted which was bedded by Grant Taylor in Dundee also. I have the original stock too which is in good nick but has had something spilt over it and marked it ... would benefit from a rub down and redone Also set of 30mm optilocs & based on action I would include Rifle is 1/2” unf threaded I’d like to sell as complete package but if doesn’t go I may consider breaking later £500 incl RFD my end
