    That would take a Zebra! (Seen a video of a zebra taken with a 45-70).

    Here is the recovered waxed patched boolit. That strange ridge where the expansion ends is a mystery. Something not right anyway. This is a 194gr patched boolit soaked in STP with the same powder charge. This would take most small to...

    I have settle on one very old and well used 303 Brit carbine. It's light and dandy and I just like it. It's a 1898 action with a Martini carbine barrel and a sporter butt stock. Yes, I do have a newer rifle - it's a 1902 Lee Enfield. ...

    :mrgreen: And to come and see me! :drinks: We do have big reds and I believe there have been some monster feral pigs. Nothing like our Ozzie mates though.

    I have hunted a few turkey with paper patched cast. Kill them dead! 208gr semi-round nose hollow point. Got to make sure you have enough boolit! :mrgreen: I've also used 220gr wide hollow nose on turkey. That puts them down on the spot! So...

    I once tried patching for my hornet. I have lost the results (and forgotten how it worked out). In the end, I was using this rifle for hunting small game and wanted max performance but didn't want to size the cases. So, I used a paper hand towel...

    I have one or two rust damaged bores and one very cordite eroded and worn bore. Paper patching makes it possible to extract usable accuracy out of such bores. I will say though that at this point, I am disinclined to shoot target with paper...

    Is that a springer or gas? A springer has a lot of shock. I have fitted suppressors by Loctite-ing a thread collar on. I've also glued a scope base on a springer. That Slazenger up above has a glued on scope base but it only has to be strong...

    For the most part, yes. There is one that threads on the rear and front of the barrel that I saw on YouTube yesterday. That rifle I showed above threads on the rear with the barrel two-thirds into the can. Others thread at the muzzle and have an...

    The 500 series Remingtons have a beautiful balance and yes, the 510 is ideal for teaching kids. It's ideal for adults too.

    Seeing this, I'm tempted to rework the stock of a Slazenger. Actually, I have one with a broken stock ..... There's that something about that old rifle.

    When my grand nephew was 9, I got hold of a Lithgow Slazenger single shot and shortened and skimmed the barrel and fitted an over-barrel suppressor. When he was tired he would walk with the muzzle end running on the grass. Very accurate little...

    I got to take the 510 to the range today. What can I say? Then came time to test the newly fitted target sight. Well, I don't have a front sight yet so I made up something to test with. Turns out the lighting wasn't good enough for me to see...

    Sounds familiar. Sadly, it's our eyes. I have found that if I wear my reading glasses then I can focus both target and cross hairs. Now I know it's my eyes because a few short years ago, (more than just a few years ago actually) I could focus my...

    This morning I decided to bed the action. I discovered the the new rear screw was loose! I had tightened it - so I'm guessing that there must have been some debris between the action and the stock. I'm hoping that is what caused the poor...

    I took the 510 to the range this morning. Not my best shooting with it. :cry: I tried several ammo types. Well, I hadn't actually bedded the action, just fitted the rear screw so my next step will be to bed the action and see if that makes any...

    Yes, there is that to the long barrels. I find the long barrel gives the light rifle balance and dampens muzzle shake. My 512 has a very light stock but the 510 stock is a heavy wood, I'm guessing walnut. If I can't find a suitably priced front...

    I have a 511 too. 1 mil out to 200 metres! Holy cow! I'm planning on shooting at 100m with my 510. We'll see how that goes. On occasion, our range has 200m shoots. Well, I'll have to get past the 100m before tackling 200m. I must say I am...

    Hi all. I've been 'away' for a while. I had an adverse reaction to the vaxx. Anyway, I am getting back into things and finally fitted the rear target sight to my 510 plus I fitted a rear bedding screw. Still no front sight though. Now that the...
