    Ah, parallax adjustment!

    Dave, when you say fixed focus, do you mean fixed mag? Both the Kahles & Docter have quick eye focus adjustment, but fixed mag at 8x and 6x respectively. Excuse my ignorance on this subject. My NV experience doesn't go beyond the simple rifle mounted lamp.

    Thanks for the reply Steve. I've read how the coating on higher end scopes can affect IR. Suppose the question will be, just how badly will performance be affected? I note that the Nitesite Wolf can now be had for £375.....worth a punt, even if it ends up being suitable for use with my .22lr/Nikko gameking combo only.
  4. Do these work ok with fixed mag scopes? I have a relatively cheap variable scope on my .22lr, but use Docter and Kahles fixed mag on my other rifles.

    Crime and Punishment in the snowflake age

    Yes, they appear to be completely out of touch with reality.

    Crime and Punishment in the snowflake age

    Recent case over here whereby a guy got drunk and beat the **** out of his ex girlfriend. The sitting judge commented that it was one of the worst assaults he'd seen. Sentence?....4 months....suspended. Where is the justice, or indeed deterrent, in that decision? Makes my blood boil....

    Lack of diversity in shooting..

    Not sure we'd know how to be racist!! 😁

    Lack of diversity in shooting..

    I live in a small village in N Ireland and have never seen or met a black person in all my years living there. I could also count on one hand the amount of times I have actually ever spoken with a black person.....and I'm 58! I should add, this is not by choice. The fact is, there are no black people living in my area and the number of black folk in my local towns is very small. Mind you, this wee country is obsessed with colour....just happens those colours are orange and green!

    Shooting sticks wanted

    Got mine here. Have them a couple of years, great value for money. Don't really understand why folk chose to fork out way over £100 for quad sticks, unless they prefer the adjustable type. Mind you, I have never encountered a situation where I couldn't deploy my stick quickly....not sure if I'd want to start messing about adjusting sticks in the field.

    Got the WSM

    I bought a few boxes of the Hornady when paying for the rifle and I don't honestly know what I was charged for the ammo. No doubt more than elsewhere in the UK. I'm going to pick up a few more boxes later this week and I'll find out then. Tannyoky only stock the Hornady 20g, which, fortunately for me, shoots very well in my Bmag.

    Got the WSM

    Thanks bumpy. Must say, I'm somewhat relieved given that the HMR I traded was deadly accurate and that there were quite a lot of negative reviews of the Bmag....albeit mostly of the skinny barreled flimsy stocked model.

    Chris's review in Rifle Shooter was the single most comprehensive review of the Bmag I found. Recommended reading for anyone considering this rifle.

    Can't wait to see how it performs on fox....should do the job out to 150 yards.

    Got the WSM

    Thanks TD. I'm relieved the rifle has turned out to be a shooter.

    Got the WSM

    Literally just back from a walk over the fields. No foxes yet, but got 10 rabbits. This wee rifle is so accurate....it just inspires that all important confidence on the shot. Never thought I'd say that about a Bmag after all the stuff I've read about them.
