  1. Sustainable? Pretty poor choice of words there. Will you be travelling the country collecting spent steel shot to re-use Conor or do BASC have people for that? I am in favour of the use of non lead ammunition in both shotguns and rifles but I cannot believe what a hash you are making of this campaign. If this is how BASC deal with everything you undertake it is no wonder shooting is going down the pan.
  2. + another one.
  3. The extra fingers give Norfolk boys the edge when it comes to using the shuttle control panel.
  4. The Euston method is far more successful in i creasing grey numbers but you already need to have them on the ground. The chicks need sawfly larvae in the wild in the first two weeks, the oxalic acid prevents in infection in their throat. It's unlikely that your partridges will hang about. You can increase the likelihood by making sure your habitat is grade A top notch. Good hedgerows, wildflower margins, beetle banks, predator control etc.
  5. I am amazed that stuff like this still surprises people. BASC are useless. They don't speak for the shooting community, they fail to tackle the issues that matter they consistently under deliver, they talk down to their membership I could go on... How they are still in existence is beyond me.
  6. Isn't this a little bit hypocritical on a site where people advocate eating hares, rabbits, squirrels, pigeons etc etc. I have even seen badger hams discussed on here.
  7. No. The high antimony lead loads were available for Wildfowling 30 years ago. As were the old copper plated winchester 2 ounce 2's part of the selling point was that the copper coating made them harder so there was less deformation and tighter patterns.
  8. Yeah. That's why you can get high antimony lead shot, and copper plated lead shot.
  9. I didn't want to fall out of them I will admit. That's why I was all roped in nice and tight!! As you say it's a fall back depends on how long you want it sitting in your driveway. Try advertising it on the UK workshop forum or similar. You might find a better audience.
  10. Well. if the centre of that to the sap is 13.5 inches that gives me a diameter of 27 inches. Not a big tree at all. Especially for doug fir. Looks to me like you have 10 to 11 inches of useable wood if you do mill it. Maximum useable timber @ £14/ft3 = 14.9×14 = £208.60 A sawmill won't necessarily pay you that as it includes the sap. 80ft= 24 metres. I have climbed much much bigger trees than that to survey raptors and had plenty of tree above me.
  11. If they offered you the price you are asking on here bite their hand off.
  12. The last time I bought Doug fir it was £14 a cubic foot. That's a big lump but it isn't from. big tree. Looks like heatwood in the middle there and sapwood on the outside from the photo.
  13. You can do that with Kit Kats and Twix.
  14. https://basc.org.uk/deer-management/stalking-schemes/ Can you see any mention of using lead free ammo? Only on Arran for some reason. You'd think they'd make more of it given their new stance on shotgun ammo.
  15. As much as I support the movement away from lead, didn't you learn anything from when you ****ed up your last announcement on the subject? Stop banging this drum and do something useful like responding the the judicial review into the release of gamebirds.
  16. I have a .25-06 and a .308. Prefer the. 308 personally. Unless you homeload the .25 is a **** to get ammo for and it's ******* expensive. inside 300 yards... And probably further there is no real advantage to the .25 at all. I shoot 100gr federal premium in the .25 and 123gr Sako in the .308, in the real world. I don't hold over any different at 300yds with either. Half way up a roe does neck. The Sako ammo is half the price. Whoever said that the .25 is only good for 600rounds hasn't used mine. I will be the thick side of 2500 rounds and still 3/4 inch grouping at
