  1. I put it on my cz452 and had to shim the back mount (normal high sports match mounts) with three layers of electrical tape but it was east to sight, even bore sighted it before getting out on the range. But it’s going on the Mauser m18 243 next week, just waiting for a Britannia rail to show up .
  2. Just got on older Yukon photon xt and although not as clear as the pard 007 it’s so much easier to use and still good for 150 yards with the right illuminator , good eye alignment and only around £250 second hand .
  3. Hello do you know how many shots you get and at what power please?
  4. I have a Mauser M18 in 243 , they do one in 223 now for £600 new which is a bargain in relative terms. I’ve owned a tikka before and they are nice but the Mauser is on a par with them actions and trigger wise. For me the Mauser fitted better , having a longer length of pull. I also think the Mauser is quieter in operation which may or may not be a consideration .
  5. I’ve owned the t bolt in both Calibres and now own the cz 452 in .22. Both great hunting guns if that’s what you want it for. The t bolt is lighter and quicker to re-load so I would say this would be more suitable as a truck gun or something to walk around with and shoot off sticks and the cz is just very rugged and probably more stable off a bi pod than the t bolt with a better trigger out of the box for precision.
  6. I use sako 90 g soft points in mine . They are relatively cheap and will usually stabilise in most 243’s as they seem to have a 1 in 10 twist. Also good for fox.
  7. Mauser M18 for £600 is hard to beat. I have one in 243 and they are great value for money . You’ll also have £100 left over to go towards mounts/ mod
  8. For the money you really can’t beat the pard 007. If you already have suitable scopes then you can move them forward and mount the pard there permanent because it will change to colour in the day time . At night simply change to night vision mode.
  9. Both are good but for me the tx just edges it. They are tuned out of the box and are very easy to strip down. looking at a few of the recent hw’s I don’t thing the quality is as good as the old ones . The plus point for hw is that the closing catch on the underlevers doesn’t open when you put a sling on it as it does with the tx. The loading port is less fiddly and they don’t have the loud clack clack sound that the tx has when cocking .
  10. You can say what you like about srs power but I like watching his vids because in my opinion he’s an honest bloke and he’s telling it like it is from his own experiences. he may or may not be as experienced as some but that’s the stage he’s at and at least he’s bothering to take the time. Please do your own u tube clips if you think we would benefit from your experience .
  11. I'm tempted to get another, wish i'd never sold mine now.
  12. The trigger is the only bad point but as has already been said the trigger mod lightens thins up a bit. When you get used to the trigger it’s not that bad or stump up £240 for a hard unit. When you get past the trigger it has the quickest action and best mag out there bar none. The only other down side is the cost.
  13. Had my 525 for 3 1/2 years now and never had any rust problems but i clean it after every outing . go for one post 2015 because they changed quite a few things and they are better for it. The inflex pad , nicer wood, better balance i. The rifles and to me the trigger feels better on these. i have had problems with pitting on the firing pin but its not affected the firing so not really an issue. The action remains stiff because of the way the foreend works which is bad because its not a eacu to open as say a berreta of the same age but good because it still feels new. there are t
  14. Went for 25 g 6 in the end. Will try them out tomorrow
  15. I don’t actually want to use the biggest load but depending on what they had in the shop I didn’t want to buy a cartridge that isn’t suitable . my gun is chambered for 3 inch cartridges but there’s no magnum markings so will probably go no higher than 25 g. Thanks for the advice chaps , much obliged .
