  1. evening all just thought I would add a note to this thread, I bought my unit in may from Dave and it is superb, I've been really impressed with how sturdy it is once fitted, both the screen and the camera. and also the clarity and distance that it's capable of. I have used it on my .22lr, .17hmr and I now have a rail fitted to my .222 rem. last Friday I did develop what I thought was an issue as when I got out in the field and turned on the unit only the ir worked, the screen did not come on at all. initially I thought maybe the unit had been put away turned on and the batteries were flat, but when I put them in the charger they were fully charged. I contacted Dave and we chatted about the possible issues and agreed that I should try a different brand of battery, which I have done this evening and it worked fine. the batteries I bought initially were from torchy the battery boy, and as I said only the ir worked. the two batteries that power the screen would not work whatsoever, even when placed in the ir position. I bought them from torchy as I had read that lots of people use them, but my experience of them in my night vision has left me very disappointed and out of pocket. I spoke to Dave again earlier this evening to let him know the other batteries I tried were okay and that there is no fault with the unit and he gave me a link to the batteries he recommended, so I have ordered them instead. many thanks to Dave for taking my calls and it's good to know that his after sales help is top drawer.

  5. Centre fire break in

    I didn't bother with my .222 it leaves the factory ready to go in my opinion. I read all the usual stuff and being a tad on the lazy side I opted for the no need to bother camp
  6. 222 or 223 ?

    Just been out for a quick hour with my .222 not much about so thought I would try a long range pigeon. now this was the longest shot I have ever attempted at 278 yards measured with the laser. strelok said I would need 12 clicks adjustment for elevation and there was not a breath of wind. I have never used a chronograph to check velocities etc and only used the information available from hornady when inputting data into strelok. I would say my rifle is performing very well without the need to reload. that said it is the most expensive pigeon I've ever shot !
  7. 222 or 223 ?

    I got this tikka T3x about six weeks ago in .222 and love it. I read loads of posts about how much better people said the 223 is with regards variety of ammunition etc and that the triple is a dying calibre but just feel that the triple ticked all the boxes for me personally. no regrets whatsoever on my choice.

  12. Fox club

    went to one of my permissions this evening to try calling a fox, when I walked through the main gate from the road this vixen was sitting at the top of the field enjoying the sunshine. fortunately when I laid down I could get a shot over the fence which splits the field, and down she went. .222 50gr hornady
