  1. In the film it actually describes it closer to a 6 bore
  2. Here is an interesting gun that popped up on youtube, i guess BFG stands for Big F#~#*% Gun. It would be interesting to see one of these on the forshore.
  3. Here is an interesting video on using 8 bore to clean kilns, the guy is putting a fair amount of shots through one, with a lovely supply of empty cases ending up on the floor.
  4. I have been working away making a bottle conversion for the Lee Loadall The bottles hold 2.5kg (5lbs) of lead shot and the powder bottle holds 150 grams of SSB150, this kit will allow to to change shot sizes and powder types a lot quicker than the old method of tipping up the whole machine. The cost posted in the UK is £27.00 You can message me on PW or email at aberisle@gmail.com if you would like one. Here is a video of it in use.

  6. I had a friend who was fishing near to a salmon farm and was catching haddock, when he took them home and cleaned them he found that the flesh was pink (salmon pink) they had obviously been feeding on the waste food that fell through the bottom of the cages. There are plenty of West coast rivers that were once full of Salmon and Seatrout in the 70's and now completely screwed because of fish farms. On one of my favorite rivers the Ruel you could see 200 to 300 seatrout and Salmon in some of the pools it was heaving with fish, then they put a Salmon farm at the mouth of it now it is
  7. About 40 years ago i had a HW35 that i thought was a pretty good gun, one of my mates had the FWB in .22 that gun left mine standing it was so much better than my gun, i remember clover leafing 3 shots on a leaf at the top of a tree when trying it out .Its a cracking gun you have there.
  8. At least the conservationists cant say shooting is to blame for the "decline" they have been off the quarry list for decades. In the days when you could shoot Curlews you only tended to see roughly one a day, now down on the foreshore you get massive groups of them 50+ flying past you, so is there really a decline?
  9. I have been spending the time during furlough mucking about with my 3d printer. I have made a primer catch drawer for my Lee Loadall, it makes it much easier to collect the spent primers from reloading.
  10. It is $90 for the mould plus shipping and duty, £70 to £80 for the Lee melter ( you can get then in the UK) and here is the cheapest i have found Bismuth at the moment. Its £16.50 you will also have add in the cost of the tin solder but its not much. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000752944488.html?src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=494-037-6276&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&&albagn=888888&isSmbAutoCall=false&needSmbHouyi=false&albcp=12555209680&albag=122168291729&t
  11. Its just under £25 per kilo i have had bismuth as low as £17 per kilo so its not that expensive.
  12. I have just been casting a batch of BB in Bismuth stocking up for next season.
  13. I have just finished making a primer drawer to catch the spent primers from my Lee Loadall, it saves me hunting about trying to the the spent primers from under the machine, here is a video of it in use.
  14. Tim Hunkin has now got a lot of his stuff on youtube, i remember watching it in the 80's it is well worth watching it and the rest of his videos.
