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…

Reloading Rifle Cartridges 5 – Charging and bullet seating.

The next step is to add primers. The first thing to be considered is which size of primer you will need (small or large rifle). If you have selected .308 then you are likely to need the large rifle primers (unless you are using palma brass). If you are reloading .223 then you will need…

Range Day – Thoughts, findings and photos..

The one thing I always need more of in shooting is practice. The biggest improvement I can make is in my wind/enviroment reading. Sure I could drop a bundle of cash on better kit and probably pick up a few points.. Like many of you I am on a limited budget. If buying gear prevents…
