  1. Sierra Pro Hunter 100grain soft point, 36.4grains IMR4166 giving 2850fps out of my 22” Howa 1500 1 in 10 twist. Punching 0.5 inch groups at 100yards.
  2. Northumbria have been excellent throughout the lockdown and during the whole Covid episode so far. Completed a 1 for 1 variation for me withing 3 days and also cleared land for calibre with 3 days too. I certainly can't complain about them.
  3. Hi everyone, yes sorry that should have been £160. These have now sold.
  4. Great advice there. That's exactly what i did last year and now have several small permissions including one for deer stalking.
  5. Bought 1000 of these to use on clays and pigeons however ive ended up just using ELEY pigeon selects. All boxes are sealed and Unopened. Asking £260 collected from Blyth, Northumberland with proof of shotgun certificate.
  6. Looking for a cheap 4x4 to use as a stalking/shooting vehicle. Cant justify keep taking the family saloon or T5 van into the fields, and one of my permissions will require 4x4 access over the next few months. Closer to Newcastle Upon Tyne the better. Looks not importnat as long as it has MOT or will get an MOT. Been looking at Freelanders and Rav 4's. Thanks

  8. As per title. I’m looking for the bottom metal from a BSA CF2. The full trigger guard and floor plate. Action screws too if you have them but not essential as I can get the from John Knibbs. Thanks
  9. Nice work Kippylawkid. I’m also in Northumberland. Whereabouts are your shooting? I’m shooting around the Morpeth/Stanton area and there isn’t a great deal about currently.
  10. Thanks for that Spurs 14. That's pretty much what i have been doing. Focused on one area of the permission on one of the rape fields that has some growth. Will have a look down the other this week.
  11. Sent you a PM Paul5tag How often would you all get out on your permissions? Is there such thing as over shooting or spooking the birds too much? I work shifts so when i am off i like to get out as much as i can.
  12. There is a syndicate i have been beating on over the last few months in Durham. They have let me shoot on two of the days and both times the Eley's took down pheasants with one barrel. I know they are a suitable load for crows. I will just but it down to a **** shot......
  13. Sorry Old’un, they were 35-40yds. Definitely hit with the first barrel, whether or not it was clean. Second barrel took them down each time. 1/4 and 1/2 chokes.
  14. Just had 3 hours out this morning at my first permission. Only been shooting since September, mainly clays, but having bagged a permission through a farming friend I have been trying to get some experience in the field. i have been up at the farm a few times over the last couple of weeks, and have found a steady flight line along a hedgerow and field. After recent attempts at decoying have failed to draw anything in, I decided to took up into the hedgerow in my hide, and see what came on. Weather was 7-8 degrees, with a 10mph breeze, overcast with the sun just breaking through a
  15. Thanks very much Paul. I’m heading out tomorrow (Tuesday) for 4-5 hours from 9am after dropping my boys at school. Hopefully get a couple in the bag.
