  1. If your eating the muntys then a 308 a bit heavy But your better being over gunned than under the mate bought 308 Now he doesn’t shoot muntjacs but he’s opinion is the 308 will take any deer and easy to get ammo in most gun shops But your choice you’ll probably think you won’t shoot reds but you can bet you will so good luck
  2. Yes fen tiger all guns can jam but if 1 barrel doesn’t fire on my s/s the other one will with double triggers Mate has beretta semi think 391 it eats any cartridge he feeds it Just that A5 been giving me issues but not to worry sure il work something out cheers 👍👍
  3. Thanks lads I’ve tried browning oil and about 3 other kinds of lubricant I lightly coat it It’s just a jamming machine friggin paid near 1100 cash new and you expect it to work My old friend fowled for years and hated semi autos I’m now thinking he was right lol Glad my s/s will shoot any cartridge up to 3inch 🙄👍
  4. Glad to hear country man I must got bad model nothing more frustrating when flock of teal coming in 1 shot then jams or stove pipes 👍sticking to my AYA Magnum
  5. I have the black hunter version bought it for ducks with 3 1/2 inch chamber This is my honest opinion it won’t cycle light loads no matter how much I’ve cleaned it keeps jamming and stove pipes when take it to the clay range have used it for ducks with heavier steel shot and it stills jams on occasion in the marsh The trigger pulls arnt great I just can’t get on with it you get a better sight picture with the humpback design but I’ve given up on it I now just shoot my S/S for clays and ducks I will be trading it in for o/u or beretta gas auto when get few shillings saved It also kicks a bit harder being inertia mechanics in the gun I’ve had it Year and half went on the duck forums USA People saying the same problems with New A5 Try couple semi autos out if that’s what your after But the gun not for me Hope this input helps you decide Good Luck 👍
  6. I enjoyed the video myself probably never get to fire a big bore shotgun so love watching these on the net 👍👍👍
  7. You can doubt all you want the 17 hmr I had on windy nights lamping bullet heads were being blown all over the place and that was with different brands that’s why went back to 22 lr Glad I did No doubt better range with 17hmr but still noisey with moderator on rifle You are right 17hmr bullets lots people have had problems with the ammo cracked casing etc Wouldn’t buy another one
  8. Had the 17hmr when they first came out for rabbit and close range fox but went back to the 22lr was lamping with the 17 on a windy night and the bullet heads were being blown all over the place the rifle was on zero I prefer the 22lr just my opinion Mate shoots the 22wmr and loves it
  9. Good job mate 👍 my cooking expertises is usually a duck stir fry or with rice 🙄
  10. Gamebore or hull steel if you can get them buy the best you can afford mate 👍
  11. Glad to hear your not injured but a mk38 aprox 7 years old hope you find out what happened if it was a fault in the gun it shouldn’t have happened but as I say glad You didn’t get seriously hurt mate
  12. Lads the editor shouldn’t criticise any shooting sport I know nothing about punt gunning but have done all other field sports some I liked some I didn’t but would never think of criticism of any of them
  13. Haven’t read the report and won’t be reading it have to agree with Scully what type of man who claims to be a outdoors man would write a derogatory article on another branch of field sports For example I wouldn’t shoot hares or woodcocks but would never think of criticism of anyone who does Just gives the antis a reason to bitch Regarding punt guns I’m sure there’s forum members who know people who participate in this sport and how does this editor know what they used for shot years back Think we should put this article to bed and not give this editor of a shooting magazine anymore posting
  14. CZor tikka heard lot reports about the x bolt barrel not the best the mate traded he’s in he’s out 3/4 times s week foxing had nothing but trouble with bolt the trigger not the best either
