    Blued rifle scope rings maintenance

    Hi everyone.

    I recently bought a pair of blued Tikka Optilock rings from this forum. What is the best way to clean them and prevent them from rusting? I've searched a lot of old forum posts and...

    Greetings, grandpamac.
    I should have been clearer, I've given up on the 6.5 Swede as my first rifle. I agree with you that I am still a fan of the cartridge, particularly if I was to hand load.

    I...

    But, I think I'll be shooting a 150 grain bonded bullet: either a Federal Fusion or a Sako Super Hammerhead. Whatever it is, it's...

    The lack of full power factory ammo was the major factor.

    I spent a lot of time considering the .243. In the end I was convinced by Nathan Foster's observations that there are no prizes for...

    Barrel length considerations

    Kia Ora Te forum.

    After you all convinced me to ditch my 6.5x55 musings and knuckle down to a .308, I have spent the last couple of months weighing up which rifle I should get

    I have largely...

    Correct, I won't be dialling initially. I believe I will use MPBR, stalk as close as I need to then aim for the centre of the vitals.

    Why is that? Inaccuracy? Less effective bullets? 270 is easier on the shooter?

    Post First Impression Introduction

    Good morning.

    I'm new to the forum, although I initially missed this introduction step and I've posted a question here before. I got lots of great advice from members.

    I'm a bit of a late stage...

    I have browsed the secondhand rifles. I'll have a proper look once I'm licensed and can actually buy something from there.

    The 270 is another chambering that sounded good in my reading, but...

    That's is great advice. One question I have, is it important that you practice with the ammo you are intending to shoot game with? I ask this because a quick look at Gun City's website shows 20...

    You are correct, this will be my first rifle. I am very much looking forward to it.
    Thanks for the advice, Grandapamac.
  14. Thanks everyone for the advice. In retrospect,...

    Thanks everyone for the advice. In retrospect, the relative simplicity of Option C should have been a massive hint that getting a .308 was the right choice. I suppose I will just have to pick...
  15. Choosing calibre based on ammunition availablitiy

    Morena.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    I'm 6 months into what is now slated to be at least a 12 month process of getting a firearms license. This huge wait time has sucked me into a...
