    Barrrel life

    My last barrel (.223 Sassen) has just had 5k through it and I was getting a few flyers so Nick @ Bradley is rebarreling it for me. But like you Matt, I was running pretty hot loads through it all season.

    Markers Bisley

    No. In my case, I need a precise 100 yd zero (with a 600/1,000 zero) to set up Strelok to take me out to 1400 yds +

    Markers Bisley

    Gary, I shot on them over a year ago and 'discovered' my zero had shifted (at 100) by about 1.5" both right and up. Fortunately I was confident in my zero and as a mate was shooting on the target near me, I tried it on his and it was spot on. Back to mine, it was 1.5" up and right again. Chatting to one of the lads in the range shed and I realised where the issue was....

    Markers Bisley

    Because when I pass the Kongsberg targets on Century at the weekend, with them having been shot at all week, it's interesting to see where the centre of the mass of shots seems to be. Not always in the centre of the bull. The key part of getting them (electronics) correct is making sure that the black centres are pasted exactly in the 'centre' of the target sensors. Otherwise they are only of use for grouping and the 'zero' should be taken with a pinch of salt.

    Stock bedding

    And that is why I'd trust my rifle bedding (amd general gunsmithing) to a professional. Like Dave Baldie.... I've seen too many home jobs cost the DIYer far more in terms of wasted time, expensive ammo and poor competition results. But this is not to say that some DIYers CAN do a good job. But not worth it for me. IMHO. Mind you, some professionals can do a poor job too and at the same time, damage the rifle while they're at it. I've a few dings on my .22LR from the last 'gunsmith' who worked on it...
  6. I would like to buy this. Please PM me as to how you would like to be paid.

    What an awesome husband... 😁 😅 😅

    Yet another T3

    Indeed. Baldie's Cerakoting is perfection indeed and the T3s are superb rifles, and when coupled with a British Sassen barrel, I can't imagine anything better.

    Online shopping moan 🤔

    Yes, that (or similar) retailer is no longer on my list of suppliers, despite offering free delivery....
  10. Yep. I did the same thing a few months ago. No hassle with Jacksons. IIRC, posted on a Tues and back to me Thurs of the same week!

    Sad news: Bradders.

    Indeed. During the CSR Imperial, on what was probably one of the hottest days of the competition and when he was clearly feeling and looking awful, Mark was seen in the middle of the Century 300 yd car park adjusting triggers on rifles which hadn't passed the strictly enforced trigger weight test. The 3 or 4 that I saw him do needed the whole trigger blocks to be taken out, dismantled and the springs manually adjusted/bent and then reassembled, not a job for an amateur in the middle of a car park and immediately before a competition. And it wasn't only Bradley built rifles that he was working on, in fact most I saw weren't Bradley Arms rifles. But it didn't matter who the punters had bought their rifles from, Mark made sure that the shooters could legitimately shoot in the CSR competitions. What a man. A legend and as others have said, one of the most honest, straight speaking and decent people that I've ever known. And the Bradley Arms company will live on. Mark (and others) has trained up a bright young engineer, who is also one of the top CSR shots, to keep the quality and reliability of BAR continuing.

    Waterproof Trousers

    I'm after a pair too and the main requirement is that I can adopt the sitting position on a pissing wet day and not get my backside soaked. The old Regatta cheapies have done OK for a few seasons but I will need something for the new shooting season. Will the above recommendations remain waterproof under 'pressure' ? 😉

    cut and crown

    My last rifle to go through the London proof house has the proof marks at the muzzle end of the barrel. Any shortening of my barrel would be removing the existing proof marks! Sneaky....
  14. Hi John, I'll take the 6.5 one please. Reverting to PM...
  15. Update. I was using the Minox at the weekend with a good sturdy tripod and it was fine at 300 yds for viewing .308 holes. The absence of vibration was a huge help.... Thanks again for all the comments.
