  1. Good start for my new Plummer

    She's been coming along nicely but most have dropped within 15m of the shotsite. This one ran on for 55m through fairly dense wood land. The buck in the photo stood on the shot which covered the does route and I got there expecting the doe to have run left. Bram decided otherwise and put her...

  9. Browning A Bolt Medalion .243 - My first centrefire!!

    Well I have to thank Mosa for a 'pain free', straightforward sale of his 243. He was great to deal with and completely honest about the rifle in every way...he put up with pm or email after email from me asking for all sorts of details to do with rifle, moderator and scope. It came the day...

  14. Yet another Parker Hale thread....

    Having confirmed my DSC1 which will be on 3rd April i am starting to look for a likely make/model of rifle. I am going for the .243 as it will be a fox/deer rifle and any stalking around me will be Roe. I do like the looks of the Parker Hale, finance dictates that my equipment will have to be...
