Yes, I've used that SAKO factory cartridge in my M12 which has a 20" barrel. I chrono'd 6 shots for an average of 2710fps with an SD of 11fps. Grouped a shade under 2" at 210m.
Shot Roe and Fallow between 40m and 185m with excellent results. The exit hole was between a 2p - 50p size on all...
In my humble opinion both X's are too far forward. The diagram doesn't quite replicate what I find on Roe deer either, but then my anatonomical knowledge is based on dead animals lieing on their back!
My preferred POA on a perfectly broadside Roe has always been up the centre of the foreleg mass...
I've had a ventile smock 30 years ago, so know what it does and it's characteristcs. But has anyone got, or had, one of these Keela ones?
Mainly interested in sizing, for example is a 'size L' Large or Massive?
I'm 5'8" so will the sleeves hang down to my knees?
Any help will be...
I used slings to steady my rifle in the aim when I was in the military. Just the basic web sling adjusted to wrap around my upper arm. It worked better than nothing.
BUT my military rifles had VERY rigid forends! If I tried it with my free floated synthetic stocks there would definitely be an...
I've just got the OLED version after owning the Mk1 for a couple of years. Tried it out yesterday in both daylight and at night with a Solaris SRX but only out to 90 metres.
The image edge definition is better, sharper. The contrast is also better and overall the image isn't as 'blocky'. The...
I have been commissioned to produce a photograph of the legal and common rifle cartridges used on deer in the UK.
I've managed to collect everything from .222 upwards with the exception of .270 and 30.06.
If anyone has one of these calibres and is prepared to seat a bullet in an empty...
Meanwhile, yet again, RSPB moorland reserves are on fire burning eggs and chicks of endangered birds. The fire brigade helped by gamekeepers spend days extinguishing them!
Not a single fire on privately managed moorland where the birds are flourishing, but not a mention of that!!!
Got this from the BDS yesterday:
Further to the Prime Minister’s statement on Sunday 10 May 2020, and the more detailed COVID-19 Recovery Strategy, the British Deer Society interprets the current situation as follows:
With effect from Wednesday 13 May 2020 deer stalking and associated...
Just got this from the NGO.
in essence the implication is that pest/predator/deer control can take place from Wednesday as long as social distance/hygiene rules are adhered to.
I had my CZ .223 cut down to 17" (I wanted 16" but Neil Mckillop suggested 17") and it tightened up my existing load to sub .5MOA.
As an aside, I also had a Rem700 in .308 which was cut down to 18" and that also improved the consistency and group size.
Barrel harmonics maybe, less vibration?
