Hi Trig, never said l wouldn'd buy any new gear - l like to have at least three of everything just in case. Picked up another Burris ra, and finally received a reply from finland so will send off to get ballistic mildot fitted. Must admit the christmas shoot was very challenging but good craic, good soup made it a good day. Have shot the ev consistently well over the last few weeks since Dave Penman sorted the problem but will go back to the steyr with my super 25-50 leup. When we go into the centre we can test the express pellets. Strumming also coming along well - just need some good tunes.
