    First shot issue

    Hi, just got in, got wet and the fox didn’t turn up! I didn’t take my chrono today as it was too windy and it would have blown over. On my previous visit I worked up to .1gr above today’s leadings and got acceptable ES’s (but only over 3 rounds). Today’s visit was to look at accuracy around...

    First shot issue

    Both sheets are shot without moving zero. I did adjust the zero between range visits. I also check the mod after each group. But thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully it’ll be something silly or it just needs a good clean out! N

    First shot issue

    Hi, thanks for the replies. I had 3 rifles with me at the range, the 17 was the only one that I had an issue with. It was quite windy from the Left so I was quite happy with the little 17’s groups other than the first shot. I’m planning to use the rifle for rabbits and foxes so first shot...

    What scope do you guys use with your Pard nv007?

    I’ve a 4-16 x 50 Hawke Sidewinder and a Nikko Sterling Diamond 4-16 x 50 on a couple of rifles. They’re both goos with the nv007. However, the Nikko has slightly clearer glass, certainly during the day, and the Hold-Fast ret is very nice to use. Neither compares to a Zeiss, S&B, Swaro etc, but a...

    Brownells uk

    What I don’t understand is it’s Brownells in Ireland and here in uk; same retailer, we’re both in the EU and next door to each other, I bet Brownells even import their goods into Ireland through uk ports. How can it be £120 ie 35% more expensive to buy it in the uk. I think bob’s got the right...

    Sorry that should have read”there’s no comparison between it and an unmoderated .410” N

    How quiet

    I have a Spanish moderated .410 with full length mod ie all the way to the action. To me, firing it, it sounds no louder than a springer air rifle. However, I’m told that fro 100 yards away the noise is more of a quiet crack. What I can say is, noise wise, there’s no comparison between it and an...

    Head space checking

    Try removing the ejector spring and plunger then try a sized case. If the bolt cycles ok, it’s probably the ejector not compressing fulIly hence the mark on the case heads If you think there’s too much headspace, partially insert a fired primer into the case and try again, progressively push in...
