    3" .410 Reloading- Feedback?

    Look for a craft punch in your local craft shop ,you can then make your own over shot cards out of 1.6 mm card
  3. Haven't you got that back to front? Taking a No 6, give it a muzzle velocity of 1500 ft/sec then at 50 yards it'll have just 0.1 ftlb of energy more than one with a muzzle velocity of 1300. So, yep that bit is correct but as the pattern will fail before energy that extra 0.1 is neither here nor there but you can be quite sure that in all probability the pattern quality and density of the slower load will be superior to those of the faster one.

    Buy the stihl 1 shot containers unless you use a large amount. At 50:1 it’s 1 per 5l and they are pretty cheap

    What's the difference between overpriced and the ones that sell below market value? Market value through an estate agent is what has caused a lot of people to remortgage their home on a perceived value rather than what it would actually sell for. It also gives people an idea they have a nice asset worth an amount of money when in fact it could be worth far less if and when they need to sell. For example someone's house apparently goes up in value due to Zoopla values, and then the owner remortgages the home for more to enable them to borrow more against the property. This is happening and has happened to a stupid level over the last 5 years.

    Well... I guess I'll just shrug and leave it there. You've got a tidy straw man set up now, and even had the fun of calling me a snowflake so there isn't much left but to be further trolled. Oh well. I'll continue to watch the news with interest.

    Hunting pellets

    You are correct they are slightly larger. Pity because they look like a useful pellet. If nobody wants them they will go in the melting pot.

    Whos said that ? When you talk about drowning viewpoints out, after we voted to leave , which was the majorities indication of its viewpoint , we had a tirade of 'You have robbed the young of their future' 'The fascists have won' and ' Dont worry the people who voted to leave will be dead soon and we can get back in !' amongst many other pathetic lines. Ah , so we get back to the , 'You didnt understand what it was all about' bit ? Let me educate you. In this country , people over the age of 18 get to vote. That DOES NOT depend on their education level. This is the system , that was DEMOCRATICALLY approved, as to be correct and fair. Would you prefer we wind the clock back to when 'gentlemen' only could vote ? So , we need another democratic vote to decide if the first democratic vote suits the people who might not like the results of the first ? Then for the people who dont like that result, we could have another.... Its a good job we dont do this every time theres a vote ? Look, Mays deal is a pile of steaming BS , its not going anywhere, that is clear. But if you and all the other remainers think that this is your big chance to kill the monster, you are very wrong. Im sorry if I caused you to melt a bit 😋 Spot on . Mogg touched on this last night. The legal mechanism to extract ourselves has been initiated, we are leaving on the 29 th of March. To reverse this , means putting it back through parliament to stay. We will not automatically stay.

    14 million in poverty

    And that is it in a nutshell. No regime/government of any colour will be or could be successful it just like microsoft, stick a plaster over it until the next hole appears. People get all upset and blame immigration/immigrants for just about everything, but it will get to "...peasants with pitchforks!" time real soon. I read this yesterday and I have to say it has a ring of truth about it, it concerns 50-100 years in the future; Of course it all those immigrants and how they breed and stick to the same enclaves to blame for the state we are in... Yes and yes!

    14 million in poverty

    I haven't got time to analyse the entire UK property market as it's so huge and diverse. But I can tell from what's happening around me and from actual cases that it's falling rapidly. The whole 2 examples are from people who I know, which would tell me something isn't right. Take it as you wish but I'll be back here in a year and we can carry on the debate there. If you think people as Mungler sayswill have 695k for a two bed flat when the economy slows down then fine carry on believing it.
  23. I'll be loading my own fodder for the .204 Ruger soon and will obviously need powder .. Anyone already doing so with Ramshot powder ? I'm looking at specs and can't decide between TAC and X-Terminator. I have lots of Varget, but I'm saving that for loading .270 to my old recipe, so am looking at other, more available options for the .204" (I'm feeding it with 32 gr heads BTW as 40's just don't run true through my Howa) Another eason for not using the Varget is to avoid having to use a compressed load for top-end velocities. Help/advice from those 'in the know' much appreciated.
  24. Today
  25. How about if all that extra lead is flying a lot slower than the lighter faster load .? Thats the issue isnt it ? Stuff loads of lead into a cartridge at the expense of powder /wadding etc .and end up with slower moving more damaged lead which patterns poorly and doesnt have as much energy .so when you do strike your quarry with say 10 bit of lead they are less effective than the say 9 you hit it with from the smaller loaded cartridge . I can kill full sized crows out to 30 yds with my 16 grms of lead from my .410 . Why ? cos it patterns well and hitting a bird with say 15 lead pellets out of ..410 or 15 pellets from a 12b is (at the same velocity and range ) is the same . The rest are wasted as they miss .

    Fox club

    Cheers gents..some bits true some bits not so I use 58 Grain Winchester Varmint x rounds in my .243 for the foxes. Fast and hard hitting and certainly do the job. Well done mate. As Grant says I am letting the side down...no chance of any cheap foxing kit though
