  1. 16 inch barrel and a Nikko Stirling diamond lr scope. got the same scope on my tikka t3x .222 and it does the job nicely
  2. I picked up my tikka t1x on Thursday and love it already, took it out this morning to zero it and it feels just like using my t3x. lovely crisp trigger and the accuracy you expect from tikka. absolutely nothing wrong with my cz 452 hmr but I don't see it making many more outings to be honest
  3. it was a just over 200 quid, I wouldn't say I really needed it as already have a u caller remote that I've used over the years and have had no complaints with. however I was let down by a supplier for my Christmas present right at the death and my Mrs was panicking that I wouldn't have a present so I decided to upgrade the caller. excellent service from best fox call got it to me within 2 days
  4. CHRISTENED MY GC 500 CALLER! Fell asleep after my dinner and woke at 9 in a daze and got my gear together for a look about. On arriving at the permission I realised I had picked up the bolt for my hmr and not the .222, schoolboy error ! Drove home and swapped the bolts and headed back out, didn't see anything about at all at the first place and after an hour or so decided to go to the horse paddocks on a different permission. Had the caller out at approx 120 yards with the rabbit 1 call playing and within 5 minutes this vixen came trotting along from the right heading for the cal
  5. I left mine for two weeks check out this video, I followed it and mine turned out great.
  6. I really hope so in all honesty, would be great if he gets into it
  7. My son and I were up early this morning so after a visit to the barber's we went for a stroll up the farm. Liam has been out with me shooting rabbits but this morning was his first on the pheasants. He did well flushing them for me and we both really enjoyed our stroll in the rain.

    New layout

    I don't like it either I'm afraid
  9. I won some on a Facebook group and am not overly impressed, clips not working among some other faults. the bodies of the pigeons look good but glad I didn't pay for them. have read lots of people have had to do their own alterations to get them to work as they should.

    Couldn't you ask for a rematch in case you get a better result?
  11. Just been out for a quick hour with my .222 not much about so thought I would try a long range pigeon. now this was the longest shot I have ever attempted at 278 yards measured with the laser. strelok said I would need 12 clicks adjustment for elevation and there was not a breath of wind. I have never used a chronograph to check velocities etc and only used the information available from hornady when inputting data into strelok. I would say my rifle is performing very well without the need to reload. that said it is the most expensive pigeon I've ever shot !
  12. all good apart from square plate, can't stand them for some reason
  13. it's my first centre fire rifle and it came with the rifle so have nothing to compare it too. I've never got too hung up on if one type is quieter than another to be honest, it seems fine to me
