I have a Webley Longbow .22 Air-rifle for small vermin around the farm, and also some Bunny shooting(brings back great memories)

A BRNO/CZ .22rimmy with a 4-16x50 Zero Option Scope, CZ Varmint .17HMR with a Millet 6-25x56 scope, Tikka 595 de-luxe .222 S&B 3-12x50 scope, Browning A-Bolt .270 Zeiss 6x42 scope.

For varminting I use my Cooper Mod 21 MVT in .223 with a Leupold 6.5-20x50 LRT with the Varmint Hunters Reticule.

She loves a 52 Berger match bullet with 24.7 gns N135.



My fox rifle which is just completed is a Rem action re barrelled by Border Barrels in 6.5x47 Lapua, with a Wild Dog Varmint stock.

An awesome little round she will push a 95 Vmax at 3400fps foxes certainly are not impressed :rolleyes:

My trusted .223 Remy 40x in a AI stock and Arnold Jewell trigger, the scope is a Nightforce 3.5-15x56




Sako 75 22.250 in a McMillan with a Mike Norris muzzle brake or A-Tec mod with a Swarofski A line 4-12x50




Sako TRG .308 with a Nightforce 5.5-22x56




CZ .17HMR with a Staffordshire synthetic stock and a AGS swat 4-16x56 scope




And lastly .223 Steyr Tactical elite scout with a maxi kite and T8, I'm cheating a bit here, I don't own this rifle now and the Kite sits on Steyr scout in .243, but I don't have any photo's

I had a 10mm Delta for 8 years, the 10mm cartridge was in my opinion the best auto cartridge ever developed.

I had a smith fit it with a Nowlin ramped barrel but i did the beavertail, Bomars and the trigger group.

It was a little fussey but used to sing with Nosler 155grn hollowpoints.

Those were the days. :lol:



There is a serious problem with your pictures, :lol: Your reloading bench is far to tidy :lol::lol::lol:

I think most of you have seen this before , but just to be sociable, here is the Tikka 595 originally .243, with McMillan Sako Hunter stock, Shilen 4 profile 26" barrel in .260 Rem - short throat, Swarovski A 4 -12x50 1" tube. It shoots..... will manage less than 1/2 MOA everytime; ......


IF I do my bit!



I use 100 Gn BT in Lapua .243 brass, Federal 210M primers, Vit N160 @ 44Gns.... fairly pedestrian load for the .260 at 2860fps, however it does the business on anything except pigs.
