Stoney Creek - Purpose Built Shooting Clothing
  1. Knives for a pro....sort of. Anyone use a pukko?

    I was given a Puukko when I hunted Elk many years ago in Finland. A few years later in the UK I left it on a stubble field after a late gralloch one evening. A bit late going back in the morning only to find the field being ploughed. Needless to say the bit where I'd left the knife was already...
  2. Amazing impact of sticks on drilling accuracy

    Yes, you're right. In Germany I have only seen Drillings used at close quarters during walked up days or driven days for hare and Roe. Not really built for accurate shooting at range.
  3. Boar in Herefordshire

    You had at least one. I stayed on Skomer for a few days photographing Puffins in the late 90's. In the little visitor hut I saw a Muntjac buck skull and enquired as to why it was there on an island. The permanent staff said it was found on the shore in a weak condition and wet through. They...
  4. Yew Tree 6mm Bullet

    Thanks for the heads up Richard. I've sent you an e-mail re buying some.
  5. Why is the BDS not relevant?

    Also not forgetting that the BDS is an apolitical charity and not a shooting organisation. Thus is in a position to offer unbiased advice to queries from Government bodies, education authorities etc. As to the survey? I didn't see it so couldn't answer.
  6. What left this?

    Badger. Not Bear 'cos it's not in the woods.;)
  7. frontline or a working flea and tick treatment

    I second Nextgard. The dogs like it too.
  8. Non-lead bullets and scrubbed barrels

    Aaah. I failed to RTFQ! I thought the second image was of the Winchester lead load.
  9. Non-lead bullets and scrubbed barrels

    I know, maybe harmonics was the wrong word, but the OP is still comparing apples with pears. if he'd tried 2 different brands of the same bullet weight the result may have been different in a favourable way?
  10. Non-lead bullets and scrubbed barrels

    150gr Hornady GMX v 130gr Fox is a bit apple v pears. Probably nothing to do with a scrubbed barrel but more to do with barrel harmonics?
  11. Stuck screws in scope rings....any ideas?

    I suggest you try penetrating oil, here's a link No Nonsense Penetrating Lubricating Oil 750ml and let it soak overnight before resorting to heat or a dremel.
  12. 6.5x55 se dies

    Yes I know, but I was replying to Foxyboy43 who wrote "Yep so is SKAN - according to Viht Reloading Guide and they should know! However in reality “swede” generally refers to older/military rifles".
  13. 6.5x55 se dies

    Sorry for being pedantic but Vihtavouri load tables for the 6.5x55 show 2 sets of load data. One for the 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. The second for 6.5x55 SWE/SKAN. The key difference being the word Mauser (not "swede") which indicates that they are the loads for older military rifles.
  14. New Forest Negligent Discharge

    Yes, the additional hole to let in water won't be noticed.
  15. Scottish Election - A bit like trying to choose which variety of Covid to die from

    You can tell the difference. The workers clothes are made from grey sack cloth, the leaders from grey silk.
  16. Casstrom No.11 Blade

    try here.
  17. Sold: Deerhunter Cumberland trousers

    It's strange but this happened to my other trousers as well o_O.
  18. Sold: Deerhunter Cumberland trousers

    Bought last summer and they fitted when I tried them on. Wore them for their first outing last week and they appear to have shrunk while in storage. How does that happen??? Size M. Real tree pattern. As new condition. £50 plus postage.

    :lol: Yes, Confuser is spot on. So for ranges up to 250m and a wider beam at close range "Diffuser or not Diffuser is the question"?
  20. Wrapping venison for the freezer

    Keep an eye on Aldi. They sometimes sell vacuum packers which are good enough for home use and cost about £25. They take standard sized replacement rolls of vac tube which are big enough for a Munty or Roe joints.
