    Nice idea! I see your little army man is a little confused with his left and right? Right leg should be bent not left.

    He's been down in the dust for a while, & readjusting his milrads! He's also of my youngest son's generation, they all like to be different, I'm from the FN era.

    Not a gadget as such but 2 home made target holders with 10mm steel backing angled to deflect the bullet into sand at the bottom. Works a treat with .22 WMR not tried with .22-250 yet though

    Mild steel? A .22-250 will zip straight through it, even with soft or hollow points. Try is (with a safe back stop) and let us know how you get on.

    My oal gauge, Made from 6mm brass tube, 4mm ali rod with m8 thread on the one end and a plastic pipe and locking screw on the other.
    I do need to make one modification and thats to cut a little notch from the thread so the calipers can sit flush on the base of the case.
