  1. Cheers phil, it’s not 100% steady but I wanted a light and portable set up so with the legs screwing off its handy. Been meaning to paint it camo for last 18 months but never got round to it lol
  2. Thanks for all the info and reply’s. Been busy working again so not been on here lately. Il try upping the reg pressure slightly. Can I just ask..... I’ve got the smooth twist extendable shroud, what barrel configuration are you using on yours.
  3. Il have a look. This is my gauge as is now. johan said for the heavy .25 pellets the 30 cal settings are best. this is my best 16 shot group at 45 yards at the new fps,... an improvement on previous groups.
  4. Does anyone know what tool/method to use to a accurately test the pressure on the regulator. For such a hi tech gun the reg and tank dials are very hard to gauge accurately. After advice from Johan at fx I’ve adjusted the hammer spring to 30 cal levels and I’ve gained an extra 40 fps but the 30 cal reg pressure is around 140 bar and I can’t make out what mine currently is on dial !!! speeds I’m gettimg with 33.95 grain Jsb king heavies is now 820 fps maxed out, and many are reporting 840-870 so I’m thinking my reg pressure is set for the standard .25 jsb king 25.4 grains at 125 bar. cheers

    A mod for the .243

    I use an evolution, different baffle stacks for calibres . Probably not the best but definitely good quality and does job. Used a pred 8 for years then switched as it was easier to change baffles and its also lighter than pred 8 although longer but a bit lighter and also ten baffle so a tad quieter to my ear.... I wouldn’t have a hardy mod if it was given to me on a plate of ten pound notes !. Awful things. Similar noise reduction down range but at the muzzle they’re loud as hell !!. At least you can get spare parts for wildcat that are reasonably priced and can fit them to different rifles quickly and easily. tbh I’d rather spend the money on a better scope , or a new stock / mounts etc these days. Moderators are becoming like a fashion accessory with new models brought out fairly often. I’m in the opinion these days.... if it isn’t broken then why spend money fixing it !. Having a nice titanium gold plated mod might look nice to us but I’m sure a fox or deer won’t mind if your old one looks a bit dated or is a decibel quieter/ louder down range

    home loading q,s

    The books give guidelines. If you follow the guides and do some research you can start loads to suit. im running 41 grains on one load and reloading manual says 39 max. The books are more like rough guidelines. Barrel length etc etc etc etc It can be as straight forward or as complicated as you want it to be. If your happy with a 0.5” group at 100 yards then great. ( I’m in that crowd ) is If you want a one hole group then there’s loads of ways of improving loads but the kit and the time involved soon adds up !. id give it a go, no worries about batch numbers for a start, can make as many as you need ,no worries of local shop running out etc. just don’t smoke when your weighing the powder and all will be good

    PELLET SWAP OPPORTUNITY

    I’ve got a full tin of barracuda .25 here. Won’t fit in my fx magazine. Any takers welcome to them , on the house of course....
  10. Just a heads up for anyone looking for a dust cap for the fill port. if it’s already been posted on here and I’ve missed it please accept my apologies !. for a gunnof that price I’d expect one with rifle but after looking at several magnetic types on eBay I settled on a sleek push on version from Best Fittings. Comes on and off easily and is available in a few couloirs to suit. I got the silver for under a tenner and it’s kept any dirt and debris out while keeping the aesthetics of the rifle in line. thouroughly reccomend

    22-250 vs. 223

    .223 is the better allround calibre ( my opinion ) .22-250 would however give an advantage in knockdown power and trajectory and wind drift if you were regularly shooting past 200 yards on a night. If you shoot different areas land types then go .223.if your land consists of huge wide open fields then the bigger calibre would be useful so go .22-250 I use the .223 90% of the time with 40grainers. When it’s windy on the bigger fields I use the .243 with 75 grainers but I find the .223 a very quiet , cheap and effective round to shoot.
  14. save up and get a wardy. will be worth it in the long term
