Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd create a little thread based on members rifles and what they use in the field, I'll pin it to the forum section just out of interest...

 

Myself I use:

 

CZ american in .22 with MTC Viper 4-16 x 50 and a sak moderator fitted, also the eric brookes trigger kit with 1.00lb pull spring. Winchester Subs Ammo.

 

CZ varmint in .17hmr with Hawke 4-12 x 50, ase ultra moderator fitted, also eric brookes trigger kit with 1.50lb pull spring... Hornaday vmax ammo.

 

Tikka T3 Hunter .243 with swarovski pv 3-12 x 50, predator 8 moderator fitted...Looking at getting a trigger kit soon...Hornaday 58gr vmax moly ammo.

 

All rifles fitted with Harris SL 6-9" bipods.

My main rifle is my Remington VL SS Thumbhole .223 with a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 scope that has the NP-R2 reticle. I've a Butler Creek Comfort Stretch sling on it, also Butler Creek scope caps. Finished off with a 6"-9" swivel Harris Bipod. It's normal fodder now is Hornady V-max moly coated 40 grain ballistic tip's.

Also shown... Leica CRF 900 rangefinder (brand spanking new since Friday!), Opticron Imagic BGA SE 8x42 bins, Callmaster digital caller, Primos Still Cottontail Rabbit call, Primos Mouse Squeeker, Foxcalluk caller, WAM call and last but not least a damn handy LED light for checking magnification/parallax settings.

My other rifle is my Sako Quad with a .22lr barrel. It's got a Leupold VX-III 4.5-14 scope with Leupolds Boone & Crockett reticle. Same finishings as the Remmy. Eley subs are the order of the day. Also shown... My old rangefinder a Nikon Prostaff laser 440, five round magazine, Eley subsonics and Eley high velocity.

Not strictly a firearm but it the latest addition to my FAC rated guns.

 

Daystate Air ranger .22 running at 30 ft lbs fitted with a MTC viper 4-14x50 and a Weirauch silencer. This is what I bought for sensative jobs like caravan parks etc where even a rimmy with subs is too hot.

And this is a group shot of the rest of the bunch. Not the best ever

Don't have pictures at the mo but...

 

.223 - Howa 1500 with thumbhole laminate stock and heavy stainless barrel, with MTC Viper 6-24x56, generally fed el cheapo Wolf ammo which is awful but the animals keep falling over and it's cheap

 

.243 - RWS Titan 6 wood/stainless with Hawke Reflex 4-12x50 scope (yes it's rubbish but my god it works well!!), fed with 58gr Norma Vmax and 85gr Federal w/ Sierra Gamekings

 

.22 Hornet - Brno CZ527 with Nikko Diamond 4-12x42, fed with whatever I can get my hands on

 

.22 LR - CZ 452 Style with Nikko Nighteater 4-16x50, fed with el cheapo Magtech (unlike the 223 Wolf, very accurate and expands nicely on small game, unlike Eley)

 

And every now and again my Ruger 10/22T sees bunny action too...

Do you think you'll need the bipod for shooting squirrels up chimneys?

Hi jamie its the t8,it does the job but as with many of the t8 silencers it looks as though it is cracking there is green stuff showing at the spot welds and i have since added a neopreene sleeve to stop the tinnie ring,if i have to replace it i would look at something else,posibly the wildcat
