  1. I glance here now and again. It never ceases to amaze me, how appalling your posts can be, but you really have excelled on this occasion. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family.
  2. Well I certainly wan't going to let him capitalise on the devastating situation in Oz, peoples deaths, to line his nest and agenda. His Facebook page is hot with condemnation for his actions, and I've said my piece. Absolutely abhorrent behaviour from a rather disgusting, manipulative individual.
  3. What proofed data do you have for using maxam powder? The bushes control the amount powder dropped, not the weight of shot dropped. That bar has a fixed hole that throws 32 grms No.6 it will probably throw close to the same in No.5. Get some scales, as I advised and see what it drops, otherwise you won't know. You can buy different bars for alternative shot weights, or an adjustable one, all from Clay & Game. The bush in the bar controls the powder drop. As I explained and gave you, there are lots of sizes of bushes available depending on what weight of powder is required. This is SERIOUS............DO NOT make up a cartridge without using proofed data and understanding how critical the powder measurement is. DO NOT just use an existing bush from one make of powder to another. Do NOT confuse grains/grams of powder with grams of shot. Get a scale to be absolutely sure that you are using the correct sized bush, that is dropping the exact weight for the particular make of powder on the data, as I advised you, and to check shot weight too. I've set it up for you to do 70mm cartridges. Your choice of powder might be less/more in volume than your previous powder, therefore as sports bob said above, you might need a shorter or longer fibre wad, a different sized bush to get the correct powder drop and quoting Old Farrier, there might be less or more in volume with N0.5 shot. There is no need to alter the crimp settings as they are done, super sensitive and a pig to get right. If your powder measurement is exact and the shot weight also, and you can't close the crimp or crush the shell, decrease the wad height. Conversely, if the crimp caves in, like I showed you, you will need to increase the wad height. As a short answer as to how much powder you will need for 1000 cartridges, find the data and do the sum. For example if its 1.6gms (24.69grains) multiplied by 1000 is 1600grams or 1.6kgs And as Motty said, please get a reloading book so you completely understand what you are doing. Regards T33

  5. Its called humour! The posts have been tidied up by the mods, understandably, but there are still above.....for a short time before the mods do the housework, some really insulting remarks fro white bridges. Some might not have been here to see the thread, but I have worked through it constantly, so am aware of what has been on there, even if others have not been current.
  6. Well I have to say, I'm very disappointed in PW. I have tried to inject some enthusiasm into getting people on board....Bluebarrels has provided some humour to lighten our potentially grave situation. Whitebridges, has appeared from nowhere popped in with some derogatory comments, not only to Bluebarrels but to me as well, de-railing the thread with personal insults, and Bluebarrels has been banned? How does that work? So, if that is how it is....thats me out too as a matter of loyalty and principle. T33
  7. Ok, accepted.......that doesn't excuse 100's of others.

  9. I don't have an issue with them not being a member Tightchoke. Its just interesting to see who is and who isn't. Thus far, it shows a lot of people aren't members, but have still put in the effort to protect our sport. Good on you chaps.
  10. I heard from my FEO it was £30k to send up the chopper? They can't do that too many times......bad enough when the townies phoned in saying there a man with a gun in Wiltshire........leaving out, in a 200 acre field, with his stool, flask, sandwiches, Labrador, and a hat like Jdogs'!!
  11. BASC 44 SIGNED 60 Close on 100 online at the moment.......on a Pigeon shooting forum.......wanting to go pigeon shooting again....but can't be ***** to do anything about it! The totals show so far, that close on 1/3rd are NOT BASC members, but have taken the time to sign the survey. So to all those that are online now, even if you aren't a member of BASC, stop being a voyeur here and go and sign the survey! Forward it to anyone you know. Look, I'll make it really easy for you...........click on the link below and go to the end of the page and click on the box that has "NEXT" in it. You don't even have to write anything, its just mouse-click, next, repeat!!!!...DO IT!! https://www.research.net/r/BASC-GLsurvey
  12. Perhaps people should get on social media and drum up support and go to Dosgstival, wearing T shirts saying " I'm here cos Packham isn't" !! A positive move for the organisers!!
  13. I did mention to a friend of mine about him interfering with the Peterborough development. Its an £8m project. I said to my mate, I don't think upsetting people who will be pouring hundreds of tons of wet cement is the smartest thing in the world!😉
  14. You misunderstood my sarcasm😉 of course they will get an email! My wealthy friends, who love donating to good causes, that were planning to come with me will be very disappointed!
  15. I had thought about going to that zoo on the Isle of Wight this weekend, and also of course, making a donation. But recent events have made me change my mind. 😉
  16. He has used his media status, we don't have that advantage. But social media is a powerful, far reaching and effective tool. Any decisions to abstain from attending/donating to a venue/charity/event/company etc that Mr Packham is involved in, is not illegal or otherwise.
  17. Well maybe theres a way forward here. Perhaps we should all consider going to any event that Mr Packham is associated with , and then write to the organisers and tell them we are not going because of their association with Mr Packham. Not illegal, but very effective! This one on here obviously worked. The sooner the country wakes up to his catastrophic, manipulative meddling, the better.
  18. Which it will Bluebarrels. Thank you to all that did bother.
  19. Guys, at the risk of alienating people, I have done all I can on a personal level, to make my voice heard. All I have asked on this thread, is that you total the numbers, yet its not happening and non specific replies to my last post of BASc and Signed is just lazy. 900 views, 143 members online last night, about the same now, and only 49 ish signed. You can lead a horse to water, but can't make it drink. I have to concede, this is getting no where, and for those that can't be ***** to do anything...............well this is history in the making.
  20. BASC MEMBER 34 SIGNED 47 My mistake, should have made it more clear in the OP. Can you chaps repeat your totals in as added to the above otherwise we won't know who is a member and who has signed........unless I keep doing it for you!😀 Thanks T33
  21. I absolutely agree, credit where credit is due!😁 I sadly, think this is a valid question Wymberley. Its my view Packham could see the imminent leaving of the EU as a timeline, and rushed in with his challenge. Now of course, Brexit is dragging on and on, quite predictably. Packham has incurred the wrath of a reasonable proportion of the nation, and like a five year old child, is bleating "It wasn't me!"
  22. BASC 21 SIGNED 32 Can you do your totals guys please.
