    .22 rimfire

    Eley subs are probably the most accurate and quiet, but are greasy, I had a a Sako quad in 22LR and after 10 rounds it clogged up with Eley, I now use CCI segmented to reduce a chance of a bouncer in R93 it’s quiet and works perfectly

    Salmon farming...finally the truth?

    Really logical point on the dry land fish farms, being able to envelope the waste and treat diseases in a contained area - it makes sense but on reflection when the fish farm industry kicked off it was only time that would show the environmental pitfalls having the farms in free running water...

    6.5 for fox and deer

    6.5 x 55 is a great caliber, mine likes 120 grn BT for foxing and I use 165 grn for deer, I found the 120 grn busted the exit side leg up on deer and settled on the heavier round now, works a treat Good luck on what you choose either way 6.5 is a nice caliber to have Phil
