  1. Rabbit numbers in your area?

    Very few these days in my part of Somerset. Very sad. I bet it's 2 years ago that I last shot one. A few years ago I'd see probably 30 or so each time I ventured out. Now it's literally 1 or 2 if I'm lucky, so I'm leaving them alone for the moment.
  2. Chameau Chasseur Leather-lined yes/no?

    I had a pair a few years ago, and found the Zips lasted only a couple of years. The rubber perished soon after. However, I took the plunge a while ago and bought a pair of leather lined Arxus boots. I love them. Very comfy and well made.mill stick with Arxus, and maybe buy a pair of neoprene...

    Welcome, I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do. Some really great people on here. Regards, Rupert
  5. Browning

    I had a lovely grade 3 B425 which I loved, and shot well with. I changed a couple of years ago to a B525 principally because I wanted to move to 3" cartridges for ducks. I find the 525 slightly lighter, but I feel they both fitted me the same and I shoot well with both. I'd say the quality is...
  6. Sold: BSA Cadet .177

    I wonder if this is the same rifle that I learnt to shoot with. I was probably 10 (I'm now in my 50's), and the BSA Cadet was my fathers 12th birthday present (so dates from 1945!). Sorry to ramble, but these rifles will be forever in my heart. Good luck with your sale Tam.
  7. Wanted: 243 modified case

    Ed at Edinburgh Rifles will tap one for you.
  8. This came yesterday

    Well done. Excellent achievement
  9. Where’s the Varget gone!!! ? Recommendations

    I used Varget for many years. It was great, but availability issues annoyed me. I persisted with it though. But, this year at the Shooting Show, I decided to move away from it once and for all. I now use Reload Swiss RS52 in my .243 & .308 and fine the performance just as good. I feel I should...
  10. Ragley Hall Game Fair

    We had a lovely day there yesterday. We drove straight in with no traffic worries at all (arrived 0805) and had a nice bacon roll for breakfast. A very good Gunmakers Row, but sadly I couldn't find any reloading supplies. Limited tat, which was a relief for me but an annoyance for my wife...
  11. Dangerous offensive weapons bill petition

    Signed, but still only 778.
  12. Wanted: Shultz & Larsen

    . i know that Steve at Ivythorne Sporting had a couple, but I don't remember which calibre. I bought a new Victory from him in .243 and, from its performance to date, I'm over the moon. Maybe give Ivythorne a try? They are superb rifles.
  13. Are reloading components specified on your FAC?

    No, they are not specified on your certificate. You can buy bullets (solid and expanding) and have them posted to you should you wish. No need for a FAC for that. Same with powder. Primers; they should ask to see your FAC, but the primers are not entered onto it. All is simple and easy these...
