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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    As title says.I ended up buying a Hawke varmint scope to go on them!so anyway what a cracking scope I'm well impressed! It had £129 on the box but he let me have it for £110 plus £10for the mounts,rite on! While I was there he asked me for a go as he's heard that its been tinbum tuned.so I said of course crack on! I said I wouldn't mind a chrono check anyway.before nick at tinbum got his MIT's on it,it was definatly over! So he reduced the power for me.but as I was in a rush to get back home we didn't chrono it then.so back to the chrono today,he shot a 10 shot string and its 9.8ftlbs which I'm very happy with(I know a lot of people have to have 11.9999.)but at 40yds it flattens defiants(.22)when hitting spinners.so I'm happy that it'll kill rabbits at that range and some! Anyhow the bit that we where both very surprised at was it had 1ft per second variation! Awesome! So I had to pop up the field and zero up and try my new scope out.it took about 20 shots to zero up,and this is my 1st 5 shot group at 30yds.I'm well happy!

    Which varmint was that? Has he got more cos I need another.

    I was aiming for 10.5, I'll slip a washer in tomorrow if you like? But the extra 25fps might break the spell!

    I didn't know you could get scope mounts without a rifle attached. It sounds like I could save a fortune, I'll have to try it sometime...

    Got the same scope a couple of weeks ago, for £105, from my local rfd, and am well pleased with it, it will focus nice and close, for inside out buildings, the half mill dot takes a bit of getting used to, as I have never had one before, but a nice scope for the money. Enjoy. Atb, Bob.

    Ideal! I only tried mine out in quite dim light.am off to the target club today,so will be able to give it a proper test! I know what you mean about the half mil dot as its quite a lot going on close together, but I'm sure it'll become simple to use though. Cheers jw

    Wow........very impressive grouping there mate, just goes to show it's not all about power. Once you've got a rifle and scope that gives you that kind of accuracy and your happy with it then DON'T CHANGE OR TINKER WITH IT...................a lot easier said than done though!
