  1. So are you saying that Chris Eubank wearing tweed and wearing a monocle looked out of place? 😂😂
  2. Hi N. i use new primed Fiocchi cases from John at Folkstone engineering. He does a great price on new primed cases. If you order 2000 delivered, they work out at 6p each. A primer alone is around 4p. The other factor I’ve found, is factory cases are skived. So the mouths get stretched and split, so take a bit of sorting and trimming. I don’t skiv mine so they can be used several times over before the are no longer useable. But tbh, I can’t be bothered with the faffing for saving 2p!😀 hope this helps.
  3. Thanks Arjimlad, you too. Sorry a hijack wasn’t intended. Nice to be old school with the small gauge. atb t33
  4. Can’t beat a 410 session! I’ve popped out twice recently just for a couple of hours each time with my yilditz o/u. Pocket of carts, seat, and just made a hide the old fashioned way, no nets just cut a few sprigs. Dropped a couple and used them as decoys on a hazel stick. Had several left and rights, and dropped many at 40 yards and a bit more. Full and 3/4 choke, 18grm 6/7 home loaded. Great times, no whirlies, batteries, flappers, just how it used to be!
  5. Some information here. These are just the recorded cases.
  6. I was asked by a client to deal with some rabbits in her garden. She had a couple of men laying a patio. One had overheard the conversation and announced he was going to get an air rifle. His intention was to shoot deer with it! It sin't worth discussing here the conversation that ensued. My aunt is a vet, and whilst I prefer dogs to cats, its quite distressing to see the jars on the shelf in the surgery of airgun pellets removed from cats. I am reasonably confident, that this behaviour is not represented by the enthusiastic members here that have a passion for their sport, nor do I think that
  7. I was just replying with the same.It would be impossible to license knives. The only thing that can be done, is being done with current legislation. However, the RFD's are full of shotguns. air rifles etc. No licence required no purchase, no licence required for purchase help yourself!!!!
  8. Completely agree with this Cannon. I’m not entirely sure what law would be broken by shooting various animal domestic and otherwise, with at present a legally held air rifle. Animal cruelty etc. But once it becomes a licensed firearm and subject to licensing compliance, it’s a different ball game. Bona fide people of good character stand every chance of being granted a licence, so no problem there. Those tgat clearly are of the type that would choose to shoot at domestic animals and possibly other people would hopefully to a very reasonable degree, be denied. Thereafter, caught doing the same
  9. I’m sure. Tbh, I don’t think reloading Used 410 shells are worth the hassle. A new primed case is around 10p. A primer is 4p, for the faffing about of sorting, trying to open case mouths, re sizing etc, it’s only a saving of £1.50 per 25. If you have a cheap source of shot, make your own etc, that’s where I make my savings. New primed case, SP3, over powder card, fibre wad. £4.37... then add shot. I load them by hand, but use electronic scales tgat I use for the CF. I can comfortably make 60 an hour that way with no hassle. Now, if used 410 cases would reload as easily as 12g cases, that
  10. Intersting debate. I have to agree with Cannon's views. Of course crimes have been committed by license holders, absolutely tragic. But as the law stands at present, anyone over the age of 18, can lawfully and easily purchase a sub 12ftlb air rifle. If a crime is committed with that rifle, it is rightly classified as an incident involving a legally help weapon. The pubic perception, through ignorance, and manipulated by the media, will be it was held by a licensed person. Of course, given the right funding, and contacts, firearms can be obtained on the black market, I don't th
  11. Eley Rto can be quite deep. I think maybe more pressure built up so more case bulging and the case mouth gets a bit wrecked too. Note the difference. pics attached of fired Eley and my own. Also pic attached of Eley and mine side by side for camparison of Rto depth.
  12. Good point. Looking at the cases on the American YouTube reloading videos, they are well used, but still go again and again.
  13. I’m not sure if you’re having problems with the brass or case. My experiences are that as the gauges go down, the cases are a tighter fit in the chamber. Ie, 12g are a very sloppy fit, 410 are tightish to start with. If the rounds have previously been plastic wad, the case is protected from distortion from the shot before the crimp opens. In the case of fibre wad, there is no such protection, and the cases get ballooned. You can resize the brass, but obviously not the plastic. I’ve noticed that with 12g little to no distortion, 20g, medium or more, and 410 quite extreme. The Americans always u
  14. You clearly have issues.....no weapons against a fool.......nothing more to add.
  15. Can’t you see the aggressive reply here? Still unable to be reasonable! Read your op. The shop politely asked you to bring your FAC. Mine asks for it for any components. You threw a strop, and went elsewhere. Would I miss a customer with a rude attitude like that? Absolutely not, I’d be thrilled you took your business elsewhere. Earning a living and running a business is hard enough, and as your previous shop confirmed, especially during these extraordinary times. Maybe you should have a chat with someone.
  16. Really? Throwing your handbag out of the window because your asked for sight of your licence? I am very happy to show mine, worked hard for it and it puts a smile of satisfaction on my face when I’m asked for it. I really don’t understand the volatile and argumentative nature of some people on here!!! Totally bizarre behaviour!!
  17. I’m totally convinced that info is collected by voice unknowingly. Alexa, Siri whatever. I discussed over the phone, sisters options for a retaining wall in her garden. We decided sleepers would be perfect and she would explore costs. Next thing I knew is adverts for them are popping up. Proven it time and again, disbelievers can try it for themselves. All jokes aside, I’ll bet Ben made some quip in the house about siting on his ***** or such like and then the info was collected.
  18. Can see anything complicated about the original post, self explanatory. I haven't the financial wording on my certs either, but you would have to be really rather dim not to have adequate insurance in place at all times. It should be a condition of holding a license imho.
  19. Ultrastu, there’s a saying, when in a hole! There maybe some of us that are able to read the situation and feeding pattern to know when the shot is good. If on the other hand, you are into ear piercing, then crack on!!
  20. It gets worse!😂 It must mean rabbits can’t hear from the side well enough then! 🤔🤔
  21. I’m not a wind up merchant Ultrastu, but you do leave yourself open with some of your “My way is the only way” comments. You said “Never when the rabbits nose is facing you”. JKD ‘s post is exactly right and Strimmer_13’s photo is a preferable shot.
