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.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

I am now sorted. just picked up a Hawke Varmint 2.5-10x44 SF, £105 new, just have to fit it to the Ultra, and put the one I have on it, back on the gun it came off, then it's out for some zeroing. Once again thanks to all. Atb, Bob.:)

    I am well pleased with it, just need to get my zero set and test it out :D already I feel the relief from not having to stretch my neck out to get line of sight through the scope unlike my last... price was £100 and I got Hawk mounts for free :) so im pleased.

    Well Greg, I love the scope, the half mill dot took a bit of getting used to, but the side focus is great. Enjoy your new scope. Atb. Bob.

    Chees Bob I had a pop up my perm last night with Muddybandit of here, first shot the scope was shooting in line but a foot and a half below cross hair so wasn't bad to zero in and the side focus is sweet! No more reaching out to the front on the scope make a huge difference :)

    Just had a look at the spec of your scope, for the spec, price and weight thats a great scope, the lens on my Hawke scopes are very good for definition and contrast.

    Those 1/2 mildots at x10 turn into 1 mildots when you adjust the magnification to x5, which is great for off hand, close range targets and at that magnification lets a lot of light through the scope for early dawn, late dusk and lamping activities.

    I like a good scope as much as a good rifle.

    I've recently put one on my 97 and I think its a great scope! Its really clear,and the ret is just right.not too fine. I removed a 50 objective scope and put this 44 on and its definitely helped the balance of the set up too.atb jw

    This was one of the main problems I was having with my Hawke Sport HD 3-9x40. I bought a Nikko Stirling Mountmaster 4-12x50 AO recently and the eye relief issue has completely disappeared thankfully. Standing or sitting, it's perfect as soon as I shoulder the rifle. I like the scope too and it suits me just fine and shoots with amazing accuracy with pin sharp, clear focus. I'm quite impressed for just £48.

    Sounds like you have both bought yourselves a very good scope guys :). I'm sure you'll enjoy using them. Now to test them out on paper and hunting :)

    A mate has one of these Hawke scopes and i think it is good for the money the only bad point is i did not think its low light performance was very good.
