  1. Hello from Evehsam, Worcestershire

    nice part of the country i used to live in alcester
  2. Scales

    go with gem pro .no gimmicks just scales.damn good ones
  3. Whitetail Classic 1.5 -5 X 20

    great scopes for the £££ light and you wouldnt know about the x20 obj looking through.not tried one with nv.
  4. 17 Hornet

    to be honest i would just use 20 grn data 3 grn bullet weight isn't going to make much difference imo you might get half a grain more powder if chasing speed.yeh meant vit pal.
  5. 17 Hornet

    plenty of load data online bud .i went with 1680 and vis 120.the 17 grn are pulled from hmr personally i would go with 20 grn. there is a forum called saubier that is a small cal forum.enjoy a great cal.
  6. join a casual range that will shoot to 100 yds.this will allow you to zero any rifles ready for a day.next step look into the odd payed day stalking .if a bit of foxing turns up you can add that to conditions at a later date.permision is the key to getting the most out of a firearm but as you say time is tight.
  7. Best Scope For A 223

    beggars belief hawk and vortex are advised when you can get a second hand leupold for that .as we speak i know a second hand 6.5x20 with target turrets 30mm tube and growlers gonads glass for that ?????
  8. great going with 8x mag.its surprising considering 308 is pants ballistically just well some guys can use them.once you have done it there is no turning back.how long do you give it before your trying it again ?
  9. damp would worry me storing them in a garage,personally i would have the divorce papers ready whilst bolting it to which ever wall i wanted .if you do go down the garage route i would fit a smaller ammo safe through the back of a wardrobe or similar to keep the bolts /ammo separate to rifles.then the garage would be alarmed and have pressure steps that fired poiseness darts and released large rolling boulders .but i'm a tad paranoid about security. mike
  10. Hello From Ashby

    hello from another leicester guy
  11. imo its a sport that needs promoting and growth.the guys who take the time to film there completely legal hobby for others to enjoy should never be punished.shooting standards/humane kills have improved through the sharing of knowledge.if anything at worst the police need to advise these guys to up security as they increase the likelihood of being targeted.imo a very serious house alarm should be a must but its not.perhaps the answer is if your going to post on open sites the security has to be grade a.i have 2 bell boxes on my house.a noise alarm in the room my guns are kept in and a separate safe for bolts and a separate safe for ammo.the door has a lock on it.and all the keys are kept under my pillow where no one will ever find them.
