Well in truth it was not that cold Col . had a bad cold so did not wear my shooting jacket . had to undo my big coat half way through the course . too hot . shutz went fine . but i think i may have to go back to the steyr . cos the shutz over a long period . gets really heavy . my back was killing me after the half way point . ???

Maybe before you do that have a look at shedding some weight off the Anschutz to get it more manageable?

PS Funny enough i was shooting with a fella ( Mark ) with a 2002 . in very nice condition , in a alutech stock . loads of work done to it . so it was a battle of the shutzes . old scruffy won it .

No i am afraid not . i did wonder when the LW barrel could not shoot em well . windage was the same as the AAs but the grouping was not as good . it was a very difficult day wind wise . bitterly cold  with a wind that would not stay in one direction for long . will see what bazza makes of em . as they may favour a stainless barrel . i think i will wait and see if they do a 4.52 ???

The tree shots tend to screw them up a bit.

I saw this being used in Wales and out in the field it seemed to work for them.

Funnily enough it is a viable sniper position and it only seems to be favoured by the South Africans.

Yes he did over the arm BUT he bent right over his knees to shoot in a similar fashion to the african mob . he had to hold his breath while taking the shot as there was no room to breath ??? HOLLY

No wonder he knackered his shoulders.

Most obscure position I've seen recently has to be Red's arm round the knees stance, I mean that boy must be triple jointed to do that...:D

Around your way , tippers are the ones who do the most . it is the fault of the electrical companys mixing the telephone wires and the power together . at the same level . they are far too low . delivering with  a HIaab  is not good . when you have to watch the load on it and the wires and having to move some times within 6 inches of em . not good ???

When they built that place you delivered to they built the walls out reinforced metal bar sheathed that in foam and then filled the void with liquid concrete pumped from the road.

You could drive a truck into the front of that place and it wouldn't even scratch it.

They built that place to survive a nuke, still the original owner was Bruno's wife apparently.
