Re: UK Chapter Discussion

Have a look at: http://www.nsra.co.uk/index.php?option=com_sobi2&catid=37&Itemid=94 This is from the National Smallbore Rifle Association, but some of these clubs have the facilities you're after. Have a look at someof the surrounding counties as well - a good club close to London is Carshalton Rifl...

Re: Potatoes!

I've not used chicken wire, but I adding soil like that is just like 'earthing up' - you keep covering the potatoes as they grow, just leaving the top couple of leaves. Did this in two old half barrels I have - worked pretty well this year. You also earth up in a regular plot - just drawing up soil ...

Re: Carrying lever-gun ammo

I use a leather .410 cartridge belt for carrying .357 ammunition. Allows a good speed load. Admittedly it is for range work, but I think you'd need something like this to carry a sufficient easy to get to amount of ammunition. Mine cost about £5. Ebay have them in black nylon for about £10 all in. C...

Re: Remington 700 question

Used AI rifles and AI stocked Rem 700 a few times. Personally I find the AI stock a bit heavy/unwieldy for anything other than prone and I'm a big guy. Then again I know a guy in his sixties who pretty much outshoots me in any position with his AI. Guess it's all down to what you're used to and what...

Re: Potatoes!

A few things I've found useful: - A good, simple to understand, reference book. I use 'The Vegetable Expert' by D. G. Hessayon. I bought it secondhand for about £2. Have a look on amazon. - Picking the right variety. I wanted low maintenance, high yield, disease resistant and drought resistant so we...

Re: Remington 700 question

I have an Armalon converted Rem 700 in .308. Very nice piece of kit - my main competition rifle. For more info have a look at http://www.armalon.com/. Also, here's the club I mainly shoot with http://www.lpsc.co.uk/. It has a lot of pictures of similar rifles.

Potatoes!

I brought my potatoes in today from my vegetable patch with a little help from my eldest son (3). Four and a half good size bags/sacks from a twelve foot by twenty foot vegetable patch. Some of them are huge! Didn't use any chemicals and yet there's no scab and a great yield. Looks like we'll be eat...

Re: Cold weather sleeping advice

Would a bivvy bag help? I was thinking of getting a surplus one to add to my kit just up the warmth and dryness of my sleeping bag.

Re: Gauging range, size and velocity in the field

Get yourself some surplus Steiner D12 8 x 30 binoculars from Ebay. They have a rangefinding reticle in the right eyepiece. Mine cost £45 delivered.
