    Hushpower 20 bore cartridges

    I’ve used these in my 20 hushpower and they are ok at short range. I’d suggest eley hi flyer fibre wad. They’re subsonic and hit harder. Only hi flyer fibre are subsonic, not plastic.
  2. All the blackbirds nests that I’ve found this year haven’t made it past hatchlings. I found another this week, in the ground. Sure enough though, the jays were on patrol this morning around this nest on the ground. They made off on my approach. When I revisited it they were around again. I was thinking, I can see what’s going to be happening here today. Following the terms of the GL regarding jays at the moment, all I could do was to warn them off. I had to wait almost an hour and a half to give them both a good telling off. I think they’ve got the message and should keep away now as they are intelligent birds. Here’s one that got raided with two eggs in, and the one in the ground still with five eggs at the moment anyway.

    WORST .22lr "Field" Subs Ammo

    That’s three for Remington then the last time I bought some Remington subs, half of them were HV’s in the same box. They were cheap for a reason. I was more recently offered some cyclones for the grand sum of £2:25 box/50. I declined.

    Barrel length

    My Anschutz 1417 is 14 inch and it’s a very accurate rifle. It will put decent target ammo into one ragged hole at 75 yards easily. Personally, I wouldn’t want another long barrelled rimfire after using the shorter ones for some years now. I’ve got my .17hmr back on track again now as well. It’s 15 inch and shooting CCI TNT’s into less than an inch at 100 yards, which is as good as it was with the 22:1/2 inch original barrel. As for .22’s, the shorter the better for me. If I was having one cut, I’d go 12:1/2 inches for a truck gun. Obviously, it depends on what you get on with, and what it’s intended use will be.

    Nice one stavross. Maybe it would be worthwhile getting a slot opened up for FAC air if you get the paddocks to shoot as well?

    Might be good news

    I don’t think Gove is going to risk pissing off all the country’s farmers, pest controllers, gamekeepers including all the toffs who employ them, in favour of a relative handful of tree huggers, who he knows will probably be wasting their votes on the Green Party, regardless of what he does or doesn’t do. He knows which side his bread is buttered, he’s not that stupid.

    Go on, you know you want to

    Which o/u

    Have you considered a sxs? Nicer for walked up imo. But then, I’m no fan of o/u anyway. Had a few, never kept any of them for long. Having said that, Winchester 101’s are worth a look.
