Mechanix 0.5mm High Dexterity Tactical Gloves

If you do a lot of shooting in all environments you will no doubt wear gloves or have tried some. If you have ever scraped your hand along Picatinny rails when it’s -5c then you will know why gloves can be a sensible option. My main issue with gloves when using a Precision Rifle has……


Sniper Solutions – Wind Finder

We have moved into a time where nearly every variable the long range shooter has to contend with can be calculated digitally. We have scopes with built in range finders, phones which can measure pressure, inclination, temperature. And of course we have ballistic calculators. Although companies have tried there is one variable that has proven……


Ammunition natures – temporary effects on POI shift

Why would I know anything about POI shift? I work as a Ballistics Engineer and pro shooter. I spend a lot of time on ranges firing a variety of weapons. Not only do we conduct firings for new developments but also proof production runs for accuracy. This allows me to gather a lot of data……


Scope Mounts.

Scope mounts are probably everyones least favourite subject. Unless you are Nerdy.. I am. I wrote a whole article on Torque settings entitled “Lets talk about Torque”. It surprised me that popular demand hasn’t prompted the sequel “Look who’s torqueing”.. Anyway I digress.. Scope mounts…. We all spend a hell of a lot of money……


Steiner M5Xi Riflescopes

I am lucky enough to have a job which gives me access to some excellent shooting equipment. For the last couple of months I have been using Steiner M5Xi scopes exclusively on a number of weapon systems. I have also had the opportunity to visit Steiner in Germany and gain an understanding of their manufacturing……


Mechanix Gloves – Recon

I have been a long term wearer of Mechanix gloves. I began with the originals for shooting in rough terrain and eventually moved over to a pair of M-pact gloves. The originals still get use but they have been relegated to the shed for manual labour.. The M-pact gloves have worked well for some parts……


A salute to Gunsmiths

​I wonder if anyone has actually sat down and thought about what goes into our sport? One way or another we trudge through myriads of unwanted data and guff about our sport from the Anti’s and the like, stuff that quite frankly is of little or no interest to the hobby shooter. I say hobby……


Kahles K624i scope review

Kahles K624i scope review

I have been lucky enough to have a scope on loan from Kahles over a couple of months. It is the first Kahles optic I have ever used, normally I run with Nightforce, S&B or Vortex. Several shooters that I respect suggested Kahles were worth a look so I thought a review……


Applied Ballistics Seminar North Carolina

I was recently lucky enough to attend the Applied Ballistics seminar in North Carolina. When I say “lucky” I mean it because I live in the U.K. That is a pretty long trip and not cheap. My company sent me in order to expand my ballistics knowledge and I am very thankful as it proved……


WMS Firearms Training – 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…….
