    What are reloading cost per round for a .50 cal? do you or can you mould your own bullet heads or not

    You can get it down to approx £3 a round. There are moulds for .50BMG bullets but I'm not sure how well they work.

    Many of you will have watched Parliament TV today, expecting to see the debate on the Offensive Weapons Bill, as today was the much anticipated Report Stage

    However the debate did not take place, which was somewhat unusual, as debates were timetabled up until 10:00pm, but ceased at 7:30pm.

    A statement on the Parliament website reads as follows:

    Remaining stages

    The remaining stages of this Bill have been postponed due to time pressures in the Chamber. They will be rescheduled in due course.

    The House will debate amendments, some of which would introduce offences for possessing corrosive substances on educational premises. Other amendments would remove the proposed ban on rifles over 13,600 joules at the muzzle but require tougher safety measures.

    The following article indicates that perhaps other factors were also at play.

    Please be aware that we will be submitting a formal complaint to the BBC about the following article, as it contains several glaring inaccuracies.


    What does this mean for us?

    Well, its possibly a glimmer of good news, at the very least it gives us a chance to contact those MPs who have still not signed Sir Geoffrey’s amendment and request their support. I have been advised that there are at least five pro-shooter MPs who have not yet signed this amendment, one of which is a rifle shooter! The more names, the better our chances.

    As it’s been delayed it is not too late for you to request the support of your MP (assuming their name is not already on the list below), if they need technical assistance in understanding any of the blatant propaganda sent out by the NCA to the Home Office (which has been relayed onto MPs) then let me know. There are many ridiculous myths being banded around, and we need to debunk them.

    The current list of signatories to Sir Geoffrey’s amendment are as follows:

    Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown [R]

    Mr Jonathan Djanogly [R]

    Mr Philip Hollobone

    Adam Holloway

    Mr Steve Baker

    Martin Vickers

    Sir David Amess

    Sir Henry Bellingham

    Sir Paul Beresford

    Sir Peter Bottomley

    Sir William Cash

    Chris Davies

    Richard Drax

    Mark Garnier

    Richard Graham

    Bill Grant

    Simon Hart

    Sir Oliver Heald

    Gordon Henderson

    Sir Bernard Jenkin

    Daniel Kawczynski

    Jeremy Lefroy

    Sir Edward Leigh

    Sir Oliver Letwin

    Mr Ian Liddell-Grainger

    Craig Mackinlay

    Sir Nicholas Soames

    Sir Robert Syms

    Ross Thomson

    Bill Wiggin

    Sammy Wilson

    Kate Hoey

    Douglas Ross

    It may look like we are making good progress, and hopefully we are, but it’s not time to rest just yet.

    If you or your MP has any queries or concerns, please let me know without delay.

    Many thanks & keep up the good work!
