    Shooting, Shooting, and a bit more Shooting!! Hunting on my days off.I have been shooting since the age of 12 (air rifle) I acquired a shotgun certificate at the age of 15 and a firearm cert' at the age of 25. (now aged 62) I used to participate in pistol shooting, in the good old days when they were legal, and owned many full bore & small bore pistols. I have represented Wales twice in International DTL clay shooting and also represented my county (Mid-Glamorgan) for many years.My shooting now consists mainly of vermin control - crow,pigeon, rabbit, squirrel and fox. I also did Deer stalking for a few years. One of my many other interests is photography, which I have been doing for at least 30 years.

  1. Thanks Vince. I've got a primer pocker reamer, but I've seen many different ways of removing the crimp, as you have done with a 3/8" drill bit. I'll do them tomorrow and prime them. They'll be ready for reloading once I get the rifle. I could get it now, as being a member of a rifle range (Pro Shoot Firearms Club) it would be granted, but I would have to pay a variation fee. Or I can wait until my FAC is renewed (expires May 20th this year) and then have it added, which is what I'll probably do. I don't think a variation would come through quickly anyway.
  2. I've just been reading about GGG brass and it does seem to be of good quality. Yes, I'm getting the Oryx stock with the Howa Stealth 2 combo (Long Range)
  3. As I intend to buy a .308/7.62 rifle soon, and also reload my ammunition for it, I was very kindly given a load of the above GGG brass. I deprimed the cases, full sized them, then cleaned them using a dry tumbler then a sonic cleaner. I went to prime them earlier and found the primers very hard to insert. I then read that the original primers were crimped and that the cases should therefore be decrimped first. I've got a primer pocker reamer so no problem there. Has anyone else done this to GGG cases and are they good quality? They certainly feel 'solid'.
  4. News in: The above has died. R.I.P. Terry.
  5. I've passed the message on to TEAL.
  6. I fitted one on a S/B .410 and it's excellent. I bought the one that can be removed/replaced.
  7. As mentioned, Solaris SRX with variable power is excellent. I have owned and tried many different IR torches, but so far, the Solaris is the best.
  8. I 'like' some of the write-up words, 'shocking pictures' and 'savage pack of eight dogs' Also, is this the same Ed Cook who controls rabbits for a living?
  9. Aye, the £300 per day just for turning up will come in handy for him!
  10. I keep Crows/Jackdaws with bamboo canes inserted in them, in my (dedicated) shed freezer. That way, I can stake them out quickly.
  11. BASC have helped me on more than one occasion to remove ridiculous conditions that were imposed on my licence. Plus, plenty of advice, either by telephone or email.
  12. Norika used to do a 3 shot bolt action. It looked like a rifle. I had one but like other firearms, sold it!
  13. For Sale: The above. Excellent condition. It's been in storage for at least 20 years. Requires connection leads. Add music and narration to home videos. Edit out unwanted scenes Black/White wipes Audio/Video fade. £15:00 inc pp.
  14. Thanks. Not a lot of difference, looks wise. I'm undecided what to have, and it also depends on what rifle I'm going to get. I'm looking at the Howa Bravo package, first off, and they also do the Oryx chassiss, which I also like.
