  1. I've got a couple of magpies if someone is struggling to get started. Collect from Weymouth.

    Yukon Photon Xt 6.5 X 50

    The 6.5 x 50 will not be able to connect to an external battery pack, apparently. Not known how long the onboard battery life is.

  5. It's reported today that the Co-op bank is favourite to take over 632 Lloyds TSB branches. Is this the same Co-op that does not allow hunting on the huge amount of farmland that it owns? If so, and you bank at one of these branches, please consider whether or not you will remain with the branch/bank.

    Making a Reloading Bench

    One day I hope to find time to make one of these. http://www.shotgunsportsmagazine.com/downloads/bench_plans.pdf
  7. Yep! It's called quantative easing. If all we can 'make' is money, we're in a bad way. We can't 'all' be dealers.
  8. I don't think we make anything any more!
  9. The price of anything is what someone is prepared to pay. In a lot of cases today, when people have more disposable income than years ago, some people will pay what seems to be stupid money for things that others, on a different living plain, would not dream of buying at the price. 'More money than sense', 'A fool and his money are soon parted', 'Not living in the real world' are sayings that come to mind. I would not think of paying, what for me would be a weeks income, to walk round for a few hours with a rifle in my hand, on the off-chance of having a shot at a deer. Some people can 'really' afford stalking prices. Others just think they can, without any thoughts of what sort of life they will be able to afford when they are older, and the income stream has stopped. Lots of people are simply priced out of activities because a small but significant proportion will go over the top for their 'kicks'. Look at the prices paid for footbal teams! Look at the price of some non-lead shotgun cartridges, but enough people will pay the high prices to set those prices for everyone else. You follow them or you give up trying. The situation is coming, though, when the money will stop and it will only be foreigners who can afford the things that we used to take for granted.

    Help with .223 loads

    Is that a mis-print. I bought 500 .223(Samson) at £8 for 20 about 2 months ago. How much are you going to pay for cases, used or new? Most reloaders would, I suspect, advise buying a large quantity of brass or rounds so that there is a better chance of the cases being fairly uniform.

    Any advice to help

    It could have been much worse. You could have been blowing your nose. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/glasgow_and_west/8484978.stm

    .223 shells

    Some people just resize the neck with rounds they intend to use in the same rifle and even go to the extent of inserting the bullet the same way up each time.

    .22LR supersonic or "stinger"

    This is what Eley says: http://www.championshooters.com/Eley3.html Eley HV hollow points have probably killed more rabbits in this country than most ammo.
