    Squirrel food

    I popped into B&M today to pick up my favorite coffee and on a pallet outside were 12.55kg sacks of peanuts (not in their shells) selling at £12.99 per bag which in round figures is £1.00 per kilo whereas the normal price in most suppliers is nearer to £3.00 per kilo. So if you need some serious squirrel fodder, take a look at B&M, unless of course you already pay less than this price in which case just ignore the ramblings of an ole tart Phil

    Squirrel food

    The first pheasant feeder went out today, about 30mt from one of the squirrel feeders. We have not bothered with feeders before but as there are some changes to some of our perms, we are setting out a number of both squirrel and pheasant feeders on about six sites so we will see how things work out.

    Are you mixing the wheat with the nuts Mitch. 300kg, wow that some serious stock. We will be using wheat for the pheasant feeders not the squirrels. Phil

    Webley vmx .22 camo

    I am not a springer man myself but if I were to buy another, I would buy one that could be tuned. I did have an Air Arms TX200 which I was crap with BUT after 'charlie caller' worked his magic I was able to shoot ultra tight groups. I only sold it as it was too heavy for me but I want an HW 57 and tune it or have it tuned I should say then I will have a light rifle without a kick. Just my humble opinion. Good luck in your choice. Phil

    Yesssss !

    Nice going Mark. I have all my perms within 10mins from home and it just makes shooting life easier when perms are close as it seems no effort at all when you just want pop out for an hour. Phil

    oh well, I won't wait in antisipation in that case. Jimmy, do you want some JSB RS to try as well because if I remember correctly, I was going to bring you some to Doncaster but as we didn't meet up, I can send you some. I don't know if they are the same as FAP but I do know that in my old Wildcat .22, the FAP didn't produce good groups but the RS certainly did and I use them in my 110k to good effect so let me know matey.

    F,A,P/ JSB JUMBOS/ JSB HADES

    I saw an episode of 'Ted's holdover' the other day where he had been testing the Hades in his FX rifles which as he is in the US, his rifles are full power and he was saying how the Hades is a game changer producing very good groups. Perhaps the performance is different Jimmy in fac. It's a pity they are not available in .25, I want to see what they are like at fac levels. Phil

    I think most of them are in my RFD's shop because he has a load of old crap kicking around in the back. Better not say who that is........................... Phil

    Sean do you know off hand if the beaver tail forend and vertical grips are the sam for the Tx1 and Tx3 because there seems to be some for sale on ebay around £20 each but not sure if they are the same for both. Phil

    Out with the new nv008lrf

    When I have had the operation on my eye, perhaps I could also go that route if of course funds allow but that is in the future. Good to know it works in daylight. Roll on the Game Fair next year when I will spend some time on this subject. Sorry Daffy, hijacking your thread a bit here matey. Phil

    Well done. I was hoping to see tham at the Shooting Show last weekend but unless I am going blind, none showing...........pity. I think I would by far prefer the 008 to the add on version for stock / cheek position. Be interesting to know what they are like in daylight. Phil
  25. We are now in September and the Doncaster show on Sat. 28th and Sun 29th of Sept. will be here in no time at all so who is coming this year. Trish and I will be coming home on the Saturday from a weeks clay shooting at Highlodge in Suffolk so our tickets are for Sunday this year. This is not as good as the Northern Shooting Show but nevertheless it proves to be a good excuse to meet up with good friends as well as buy a few bits and pieces. I take it Si, you and Jimmy are going......................Hope you guys can do the Sunday this time or Trish and I will be having coffee all alone. The link for you all, I can't see any of us from last year on the video but I'm sure we are there somewhere lads. http://www.southyorkshireshootingshow.com/ Phil
