  1. .243 question and lead free

    Ah. Thank you. What’s ammo availability like for this dare I ask 😊
  2. .243 question and lead free

    I should add I have the opportunity to join someone in some park culling too. Maybe the .243 would be better for this?
  3. .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 🤔...
  4. Creedmore/Swede

    For those that have any experience of both cartridges, is there any noticeable difference in recoil? Or ‘style’ of recoil?
  5. Creedmore/Swede

    Why is factory ammo going to be hard to come by? Excuse me if I’m a bit behind on things.
  6. Creedmore/Swede

    Thank you Cris
  7. Creedmore/Swede

    I’m not looking at an argument for which is best, but purely if I wasn’t going to get into the lengths Of reloading, which has the most factory ammunition available? Or better factory options? I’m thinking of an additional barrel for an R8. Thank you

  10. Ammunition Sussex

    I’m not sure if the best section to put in, but any recommendations for Ammunition in Sussex? Rakers are currently closed in lockdown. Thank you.
  11. .222 lead free ammunition

    Is there any lead free factory ammunition available.. as opposed to hand loads? Thanks
  12. Delay on certificate return

    Thanks. Everything has been done with my firearms officer, who I have a good relationship with. I think I need to send in something to those higher up if I can find a contact. And I think definitely from a solicitor next time.
  13. Delay on certificate return

    Thank you all. I have all the factual evidence from the courts that was sent to my FLO. On those grounds they have said my firearms can now be returned, and again have an e mail trail to confirm that. So I have evidence to use if necessary. I just don’t know why or what the delay is. And yes...
  14. 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...
  15. Additional Blaser Barrel

    Just to sideline slightly... 6.5 x 55 or the “new” 6.5 Creedmoor? I’ve seen a couple of low round count 6.5 x 55 R8 barrels or spend £300 more and get new Creedmoor. Thanks again!
  16. Additional Blaser Barrel

    Yes, I like ‘softer’ calibres in general, but then on driven hunts I don’t think I’d be too concerned with something bigger, if that makes sense!
  17. Additional Blaser Barrel

    Thanks for all your responses. I initially got .308 as I do go on driven hunts and is often the minimum requirement ( or .30 calibre in general), so I got it as an all rounder. I have had a 6.5 swede before and do like the calibre, just so pleasant to shoot. Perhaps a 6.5 and something bigger/...
  18. 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...
  19. What breed

    Thanks for the replies so far 👍
  20. What breed

    I’m not that familiar with dogs for deer. But one day I’d like a small dog to take out with me, and also a house companion. Also a breed that are good around young children?? Any ideas welcome. Thank you.
