    12g Steel Shot

    I have been shooting gamebore super steel 32g 4 shot for about 2 yrs , sceptical at first but really got on with them, when roost shooting, the trees are tall but fetched them down and really forgot about being steel, worked well, now im running down on them bought a1000 fiocchi wetland steel 32 in 4 shot, tried them this sunday and noticed they seem to make more of a crack when fired didn't do to well but the jury is out on these , time will tell, anybody else used them, they cost 260 per thousand, and I use b525 sporter 1/2 and 1/4 seems to work for me.

    A1 tall camo bucket seats

    had one for xmas, make sure the base is flat, otherwise you have a rocking chair, like it compared to standing, I wonder as it gets colder if the plastic will become brittle, the seat has a plastic pull loop to take the lid off, could see if you don't use it and pull on the padded seat could cause a problem, at the moment glad I have it.saves my back.

    Sit or stand

    I thought it was just me, always prefer to stand but my back kills me as the day goes on, got a swivel seat bucket, soo much better, roost shooting will stand.

    Ballistic Turrets

    deputy dog, I was in the same position, I have a t3 lite, .308, got a gen 2 vortex viper, leica 1600b range finder, use the range finder tells the clicks, dial it in does what it says, a lot of land I have a shrewd idea but nice to check, and nice to see it work.

    How far

    before I pull that trigger, back stop,back stop, back stop, not interested in shooting anything until I have a backstop, don't care what it is, I want too sleep at night, not worth the risk.

    17 hmr

    I have both, horses for courses, like both but the hmr still ricochet, out the two I would take the hmr out so accurate, rarely ever get a runner, as said very accurate.

    Cabinet for a rifle/moderator

    never leave a mod on, what I have done is made a shelf just under the ammo box the depth to allow for mods etc.

    Silver pigeon 1 sporter

    I had a 687 silver pigeon, new, liked it, my friend had a browning 425 other than felt heavier I started to think it felt better, my silver pigeon developed a timing problem when ejecting, in the end they swapped it for a browning 525 sporter, im so glad I did because I feel I wont be getting rid off it, in other words take your time before spending your money, just take your time.
