  1. Very true. It's amazing how many on there read the rule book from behind a key board. Unlikely their feet ever touch grass but know what they are doing

    Good job and a plan that worked. How are you finding 008 ? I am thinking of getting one for my hmr. I use it a lot for fox control on some of the smaller patches and obviously rabbits which seem to be back with abundance.
  4. Brattasound ( I think that is how you spell it) but all approved cabinets are good quality now. Seen some reasonable ones on the auction site new
  5. One of my mates is rfd so gets it for us. I use Hunter in my 243. But mates use tac in 223 and 204. Was using vit previously
  6. Great few hours by the looks of it. Benches look great Steve. I have same mtm rest. All of my mates that reload all use ramshot as well now.
  7. Forget all the farce about heads. You are shooting roe deer on a few hundred acres not looking after herding deer on a 20000 acre estate. You pay your money take what you want. I look forward to meeting a man on a small piece of ground leaving a buck that he is paying the rights for. Ignore the carp. I suspect it will be last pic on there.
  8. Should be straight forward. But so should a variation which seems to take quarter of a year. Did you ask for restrictions to be lifted?
  9. Well done sir. A memory that will last and the first of many I am sure

    On to a new bit of ground last night where owner had contacted about a fox taking chickens. No knowing the ground I took hmr as I was sure it would not be vast. When I get there owner showed me round his farm with plenty of rabbits that needed thinning out aswell. I set my truck up under hedge and immediately saw a fox trotting away down the same hedge. Waited till she was out of sight got rifle set up. Within a minute of hand calling she came bombing down the hedge. A quick shout and stopped her 30 yards out. Quick phone call to owner who I had left ten minutes before. Who was slightly shocked I had got her already. With the night early I stuck foxpro out sixty yards from the truck. Within half hour I could see another fox on the far opposite corner. Started caller the fox came bombing in to it. I muted it at about 30 yards from caller but he kept coming. Looked at caller and immediately back peddled to the corner where I hit it. Owner rang me this morning to report that the dead chicken he left out had not been touched. He asked me what he owed me. I said sort out the ground for permission around his as there were plenty of roe and rabbits. He said no problem. I will try again next week as I am sure there will be more

    Had a half grown cub out of MK2 fox box at last light. Saw another in the far hedge but no clear shot. Went up to the original box and had one come in the field come in the field late on but no luck. Seems to be a few about on the move now. With cubs being pushed out to hunt. Had pard on trial but could not get as good a picture through leupold as I can with ward. Still a good unit just think a cheaper scope with less coatings work better with these add ons
