Thanks Lon, yes I understand the desire for flexibility.
I'm currently very sympathetically updating a DuMoulin / FN Commerical 404J and going to...
The 7x64 is not that far off a 7mm Rem mag but not quite as punchy. It and the 280 Rem are basically a .30-06 case necked down to 7mm (Length and...
Hi Mark, have a look at the Tungsten Matrix that people like Hevi-Shot are producing. It's incredible stuff.
Got an FN Commercial 257 Roberts myself
Overall view of rifle – put a leather cheek riser on the stock just to lift sight like a little agter some shooting.
Of what I have:
7x64 on a Mausingfield for plains game.
404J on an FN Commercial action for the big stuff
12b over under Browning B525 28” barrel...
I noticed this when I wanted to load up a 44 mag for deer. Seemed it lost speed at a slower rate but started with less speed so not sure what the...
For reflex sights, you could try the below which was my solution when I wanted to put an optic on a mauser action which was not drilled...
Really? I find that having run several boxes through my rifle several in every 20 get case mouths that get bent to sharp angles and I don't want...
Personally I don't think it is bad ammunition. The main issue I have with it is that it is I have found it not to be as accurate as Norma and the...
Closest to 35 Whelen I reckon. Canadians call is .366 Wagoner or some such
Another advocate for the 9.3x62 here! Mine will head with me to Croatia next weekend to tangle with wild boar I hope.
Shot some pretty large wild boar and red deer with a 7x64 so don't see why it wouldn't work with a 280 Remn on plains game. Something like the GMX...
Welcome from a London based oil man who's spent a fair bit of time in Aberdeen and Dundee!
I would concur with the above. Go for a smaller dot than you think you need. Also, you tend to notice a finer dot closer to your eye as the flare...
The proposed ban on Trophy import, export, possession, taking etc was proposed by Zac Goildsmith, a Conservative MP.
He lost his seat to the...
Well folks, the MP who proposed the trophy hunting legislation has lost his seat! This helps us. We still must fight but it is a start.
Lovely guns, Red Leg
Funnily enough 22 centre fires are legal in Scotland for roe but not in England. Daft laws...
7x64 fan here as is my father. Watched him put down 2 muntjac with them this evening effectively
WAB, yes those live pigeon guns were often solid pieces.
I wonder with a 10b 3.5 single lead ball recoils like...
I think those Burris Fastfire IIIs are amazing little optics and great value for money
Owning a 9.3x62 I'm wondering how far you are planning on shooting with it? It is not a great long range round and surely you aren't going to hunt...
All, an example of my point of all British shotguns not being "dainty" side by sides.
Mr Rahman sir, I think you are right on the service rifles. The Imperial Russian Army ordered quite a few I understand.
Also I understand some of...
Pertime, that was indeed my thought on the rifle, probably a Finnish connection.
Interesting rifle and chambering at an auction house in the UK...
@vette447 , that's lovely! Hope you really enjoy it.
30-30 Kynnoch ammo:
Not shot them at quarry but they are very accurate to silly distances with my 7x64
Quite a few people on here helped me sort my 9.3, only fair to share!
I think it's important to realise that the UK gun trade built other things than light side by sides. Particularly Birmingham (Though some London...
That is some beautiful country!
Common here in the UK. Help you shoot better with reduced muzzle flip and less retort: What's not to like...?
I say this with some trepidation but... Nice wood, sir!
Anyone think a CZ527 .223 Rem rebarrel to 350 legend might be a fun little deer and pig getting with some real thump..?
Great stuff Ray, and thanks for posting!
This is quite a handy guide for red dots and their foot prints:
I'm not sure it is...
Hi there Perttime,
There is probably more G from a handgun slide than any rifle. I've had a Burris Fastfire on a slug gun for a couple of years...
How does Prince Andrew like his Whisky?
Just like he likes his women: Less than 18 years old and mixed with plenty of coke!
