  3. I Have No Idea Why....

    even if you didn't see a squirrel its worth getting up for the sunrise and being in the great outdoors!!
  4. Can't Decide On A Scope

    2.5 - 15 x 56 would be my choice

    theres a gang of em!
  6. A Useful Hobby

    some get paid to shoot others do it for the sport at least this sport is actually useful at times. Tagged these two living under my deck, started getting in the loft. These larger ones don't want to go in the traps. https://photos.app.goo.gl/7PCFupwvDlALzOY42
  7. Ppu's Or Hornday

    it would be interesting to know the facts, us vs europe demand especially as europe's population is twice the size of the us population, and many swiss people shoot as do former soviet union countries and Scandinavian countries

    if i were you i would just decide which is the most accurate and use that only. its not really needed to use cheaper ammo to get on paper. if you look through the bore with bolt out and ajust scope too bore you can start to find zero then fine tune with most accuarte ammo choice

    if i were you i would try eley hollow or eley edge (made in uk!) winchester hollow maybe lapua cci can be ok
  10. ok I wanted to get my rifle crown re worked as accuracy was bellow par. it could of been many things, but i estimated it was the crown. i also decided to shorten the rifle too 16 inchs for a change and re thread it for mod again. after pondering where to go and where not to go! i came across a shotgun smith who recommended a chap in the midlands called mid countries blacking. website here. http://www.midcountiesblacking.co.uk/cgi-bin/mcbweb.exe/cgi_home?Live=1 I'm very happy with the work and would highly recommend this smith to anyone. I dealt with a chap called Darren and he did a nice job of the crown. Very nice chap to deal with and genuinely wanted to help. I might add that the rifle is now shooting as it should again. very accurate, after the work. Thumbs up for mid countries blacking.
  11. Looking For A 223

    never had a browning in 223. but i have a browning in 22lr. if they make 223's like 22lr's based on my rifle yours should be a good one. its build quality is superior than any 22lr i have come across. accuracy is very very good also. but saying that my browning is an older model. sometimes even the best makes can make a friday afternoon rifle and some of the worse brand can sometimes make a good rifle. it can be a lottery with any brand. so its worth considering that as well as brand. if possible its always good to try before buying especially second hand. it can be a lottery as its also about ammo matching the gun not always will a realy good branded gun match local ammo availability. as for Remington. my guess is they are thrown together quickly. - get what you pay for. both the remmington 700's in 223 I have owned shot quarter inch moa or a little less, but i had to replace the trigger's for that and stocks. and reload. i would say rem build quality is average. probable not as good out of the box compared to tikka. tikka and remmington 700's are very up-gradable. an upgraded rem can outshoot a tikka IF you are lucky and get a good one. but there is more chance of getting a good tikka out the box as production standards are tighter, tikka also do some nice older models. saying that i love my remmington 700, and after the upgrades and work she shoots nice. but be prepared to spend extra on a rem. howa are not bad quality for the price. what ever is brought there is a good chance you will want to upgrade something. the trigger is worth upgrading on many makes in my opinion. and JEWELL make ammmmmmazzing triggers. might be worth considering what upgrades available before you buy the rifle if wanting to upgrade. where possible try before buying as everyone might recommend a make or model then you yourself don't like it for personal preference reasons. one mans poison is another mans wine.
  12. anyone know how much these airgun mods are worth second hand? 3 inch long and reasonably effective on 12ftlb air guns. 1/2 inch unf

  14. Keeping Rifles When Treating Anxiety?

    its a conman problem that alot of people have in the uk. linked to stress. but few admit too it. well done for admitting to it chap. its an old thread, hope my comments help you chap. I hope you get it sorted chap. I know what your going through. life is challenging for most people, money, close family members dying, illness etc, etc. But I believe any situation can be improved with a positive approach. not always are pills needed. Its always best to get some kind of help with these things. And it is solvable. Without loosing the very thing that makes you happy - shooting. even storing with a trusted gun shop and taking a break for a while is an option if a mate will supervise shooting outings while situations improve - worse case. I would suggest going private if you can afford. talk to a good private councilor. its not hiding the situation to go private. and private appointments are faster than state ones some times. find the source of the anxiety and make a plan to start chipping away at the main cause. once the root cause of the anxiety is identified and then you start to tackle it THINGS WILL IMPROVE. 'once the root problem is pulled' out the anxiety will start to disappear. If your getting help from somewhere, and not a danger to anyone in the eyes of your doctor or councilor. there is no reason to loose your ticket at all. it takes balls to admit a problem and get help many don't. but not always do you need to take pills. there are other ways to deal with anxiety other suggestion which may or may not help and may or may not be funny to read!: 1. take regular excercise to de stress. 2. join a club where people have the same problem 3. join a very good church and become a christian!!!! 4. anti anxiety relaxation cds 5. if the wife allows visit a good massage place to de stress, preferably with attractive women doing the massages!!! 6. focus on positive outcomes when the anxiety starts by thinking positively about the problem/s. 7. tie chi can help!!! the list could be longer. not always do people need pills to manage this sort of challenge
  15. Best Scope For A 223

    i've had four hawke panoramas. 4 - 12 x 50 very good light transmitting for budget scopes especially with gen 1 nv add on. and useful half mill dots. had a 3 - 9 x 40 panorama not nearly as good in low light at the 50's. panoramas better low light transmission than the mtc mambers and viper with gen 1 add on when i tried them. the only thing i found with one of the hawke scopes if the gun bag was knock in transit it would loose zero. for this reason i tried nikon monarch 3-12x42 with gen 1 add on nv. i would say the nikon glass is clearer and the light transmit ion is better than panorama. now i am considering selling my last panorama scope and replacing with my 3rd nikon monarch because they are light weight, compact, reliable wind elevation adjustments, hold zero very well, excellent glass good low light gathering even with the 42 objective. at 6 x mag or less the 42 and 50 objective nikon lenses do the same job and the 42's can be mounted closer to the bore. i believe nikon make very good quality scopes. but the hawke sidewinder half mill dot i had was a good all round scope. and if your on a budget your on a budget. for me nikon scopes have the edge if money is no object. hawke customer service is good.
