WMS range – Wales

Formed informally, the committee is a group of target shooters who belong to disparate NRA affiliated clubs. They meet regularly to enjoy discourse and long range shooting. So named after a black and white photo resembling a meeting of a soviet collective farm, the committee is dedicated to safe shooting and a bit of science. Within…

Test firing the new .338LM Ultra from RPA

Most of our U.K. readers will be familiar with RPA or Rangemaster Precision Arms. RPA have built a strong sporting heritage in Europe and their actions have dominated serious competition.

Civillian Service Rifle – Urban Contact Match U.K.

The MPGS Gurkha on guard is positively beaming. He looks like the happiest man in Pirbright, and there is nothing he would rather be doing this early Sunday morning, than check in 100 civilians onto his base. He’s assisted by Fred from the NRA, who is armed with a list of names as he verifies the…

Sig Sauer Kilo 2000 Rangefinder

When it comes to all things shoot related, I am probably one of the luckiest chaps alive. I work as an instructor at one of the very best ranges in the UK (Orion Firearms Training) and I get to see almost every variable piece of shooting kit there is, whether firearms, binoculars, rangefinders, clothing etc…

Load testing with Reload Swiss RS60 and the GnZ Precision Rifle build.

I took a trip down to Bisley today in order to run a barrel break in on the .260Rem and do a little load testing.

Load testing – Reload Swiss RS52

Reload Swiss are the newest propellant brand in the U.K. Propellants have suffered with supply problems in recent years here. Varget – the powder choice for many became virtually unobtainable and many other popular powders became a little hit and miss regards availability. The Reload Swiss brand was therefore highly anticipated.. The rollout was fairly…

Building a Precision Rifle – Part 3 – Extended range shooting.

The GnZ Precision rifle build has up to now been a huge success. At both 100yds and 600yds the rifle achieved very good results. Would this bear out at longer range. First we should bear in mind the budget so far.. MDT HS3 Chassis system – £500 Second hand Remington 700 ADL – £350 Second…

AR15 On a diet part 3.. ADMFG Recon scope mounts and Magpul furniture.

If you read the first in this series you will see the GnZ AR has changed considerably over the last few weeks. It began life as an SPR type build which was very popular about 5 years ago. The build looked to be modelled on a Knights Armament special purpose rifle.   These became very popular…
