  1. .243 question and lead free

    I am looking for a new R8 barrel when my renewal comes up. I’m after a dual purpose fox and deer calibre. Would it be unwise to spend out on a new .243 with possible future issues with lead free? Or am I over thinking this?! I Was thinking of 6.5 creed or 6.5x55 because of the lead factor 🤔...

  5. Delay on certificate return

    I had my firearms removed as a precaution to a situation triggered by my ex partner. This has thankfully been resolved through the courts, justice prevailed, and I can have my firearms rightfully returned. I had a face to face meeting with my FLO who said he would be sending forward a memo to...
  6. Additional Blaser Barrel

    I’m deciding on another Barrel for a Blaser R8. I currently have it in .308. I’ve had other barrels before in an R93. I like the 6.5 x 55, enjoy shooting it more than the .308. Some might say they might be too close? I also have a separate .222 ( tikka) for foxing. I’ve also thought about the...

    I’m looking down the army surplus goretex route for a stalking/ farm coat. Just seems the top brands are getting to such crazy prices. There’s quite a lot out there, militarily stuff, anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I’d like plain green.? Thanks.
  14. .308 Factory rounds.

    just wondering what people are using in their .308s, mainly for fallow? More interested in performance as I know Acurracy is dependant on individual rifles. I’ve been using 165gecko express, and the Hornady superformance 150gr. Thanks
  15. 6.5 creedmoor

    Hi. Thinking of getting another 6.5 x55 barrel for my R8. But I notice they now do some of these “newer” Calibres in the R8, like the 6.5 creedmoor, 6.5x47. Is it worth a look at these, is there any significant advantage over the swede? Thanks.
  16. Centre fire noise.

    I purchased a .222 a while back, with moderator. I was after something possibly a bit quieter for foxing around smaller properties and horse paddocks. It does appear quieter than my .243 but I was just wondering if there really is much difference? I mean there’s still going to be a “crack” from...

  20. Blaser Barrel.

    I bought an R8 a while back in .308. Which is fine. I also have a .222 tikka just for foxing. So all very simple at the moment. One for deer and boar, one for fox. Now this is probably a want more than a need but I have an inkling for another calibre/barrel for my blaser?! Anything I could add...
