  1. For Sale: Weaver Grand Slam 6-20 x 40

    Weaver Varminting scope for sale – never used. £300 incl P&P It was bought for a Ruger s/s .204 as the scope is mainly silver with black adjustment grips so matches very well with both a s/s or black/blued rifle. The crosshairs are fine Duplex. Clarity is very good and ideal for shots on say...
  2. CCI small rifle primers 400 v BR4

    Primers are as much a variable component as any other in reloading and can alter velocity and trajectory and therefore accuracy quite considerably. I have long been an advocate of using primers in the same way as powder to vary a load with great effect. We dont choose our case because one...

    If your wood is only 'just' oily then................... My method is a little more drastic but usually 100% successful. The only time I find problems is when there are cracks in the wood. Cracks open with heat and need special treatment so PM me for specifics if you find your woodwork is...

    If your wood is oily - really oily then you will have problems and the following may assisit.................. Traditionally, some of the world’s most colorful woods like rosewood, teak, ebony and cocobolo are often used to build musical instruments, decorative boxes, jewelry, accents and trim...
  5. Gun stock refurb

    Let me start the post by stating that I am in no way saying any of the above posts are wrong – I am just passing on my findings and experience. I never use a paint stripper as I find the residues work their way into the grain and stay there and when a new finish is applied may often start to...

  12. Primer use

    ""However, my real headache is my cold-bore shot. My very first shot is always way out (MOA high) at the very beginning of every session, and of course in a stalking situation that is the shot of paramount importance. Can anyone offer me experienced / informed (rather than stab in the dark)...
  13. Primer use

    Working up different loads with different primers means serious consideration needs to be given to pressure signs - here are some pages worth a read................. http://www.exteriorballistics.com/re...aseinspect.cfm http://accurateshooter.wordpress.com...brass-is-made/...

  15. Vectan powder

    I always used Reloader 12 in my 308s but since its demise have turned to Tubal 3000 and find that it is virtually interchangeable. Not only in loads but is equally as good in accuacy terms - I am more than happy with it. Qualification. There does seem to be a little variation between batches...
  16. Vacuum flask

    Just ordered some replacements myself. BUT you need to buy this sort not the standard type of thermos. These are guaranteed to last 24 hours rather than 8 for the standard flask. Amazon is presently the cheapest place to buy although they are not in stock until later this month - they will...
  17. deer stalking with 25-06 calibre

    Gitano, I agree with you that in most instances differences in case weight and therefore capacity is so insignificant as to not be worth considering - certainly for field use which is what I load for. I am happy with average accuracy and good consistancy so am a lot less fussy with my loads than...
  18. deer stalking with 25-06 calibre

    PP originally made ammo making machinery and all Lapua ammo is made on machinery made by PP so when PP started making their own ammo they were already a few steps ahead of the competition. I have tried at least a dozen different cals / types and have found all to be excellent for their price...
  19. deer stalking with 25-06 calibre

    Excellent cal for both 85 and 100+gn bullets esp if you homeload but if not try Prvi Partizan as with two different makes of rifles I found I could easily get 1" or less grouping and at the price of the ammo it makes for cheap shooting. With Kranks being 1/2 way up/down the country get...
  20. win 223wssm

    Shame ! I have had all the WSSMs and still have a 25 and am more than satisfied with all. Browning do on occasions have feed problems but I have now had 3 WW rifles in WSSM 223 243 & 25 and had no probs with any but the 2 Brownungs I had were returned and monies refunded 223 and 243 as not fit...
