1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    .22lr 100yrds
    .22wmr 200-250yrds
    .17hmr 200-250yrds

    hmr & wmr ok for headshots ONLY on fox out to 100 max.
    performance of the hmr & wmr is similar, hmr is flatter, but wmr is better in wind....

    Ask to hold 1000 and buy 500 - should be fine. :)
