Isle of Wight Military Vehicle Museum 

 

Last week we paid a visit to the Isle of Wight Military Vehicle Musuem, and was impressed with the amount of displays and actions being take by the museum.

If your planning a holiday in the Uk, the Isle of Wight is a great place to visit and with places like this to visit make the stay even more enjoyable.

What is impressive with the Military Vehicle Musuem is the number of tanks and military vehicles on display as well as the engines, gearbox's, and other components on individual displays.

The musuem also have an active restoration program which unlike many places is on full view so you can watch it happening.

In our time there we had the opitunity to not just view all this but to get in and expereince some of the tanks with the friendly and helpful team at the museum explaining how the tanks worked and there roles on the battlefield.

All this togeather with a well stocked gift shop and coffee bar makes the museum a great place for all the family, the kids get the chance to get involved with a quiz as they go round encouraging them to look out for details on the vehicles.

Telegraph new law competition: vote now

The entries are all in. Now it is your turn to vote for the proposal you
would like to see as a private member's bill.

on the week before the 24th may, as Westminster discussed Private Members Bills, we asked you to provide MPs with some inspiration. Under Commons rules, any MP can introduce a bill, but only a few are ever debated. The ballot to decide which members get time for such debates was held on Thursday. James Wharton, the MP for Stockton South, came top of the ballot. The readers of telegraph.co.uk/politics did not disappoint, and provided us with a raft of ideas. These are the six that caught our eye. Now, it is over to you - vote below for the Bill you'd like to see debated in the Commons. The winner will be sent a bottle of House of Commons claret and a box of Commons chocolates.

Repeal the ban on hand guns and re-open shooting clubs,
proposed by Colliemum. They write: "After all, why should only
criminals be 'allowed' to possess guns and shoot unarmed, defenceless citizens
and police officers?"

Rangemaster Precision Arms 24/01/2013

 

http://www.rangemasterprecisionarms.com/

 

Today 308sniper was given the unique privilege of a guided
tour around the Rangemaster Precision Arms factory.

We must start by thanking the team at Rangemaster Precision
Arms for sparing the time in their busy schedule especially now as they are on
final stages of launching a new exciting product.

We where given the special invitation to Rangemaster
Precision Arms to discuss the Rangemaster G2 subsonic which is currently away
in an undisclosed location for military testing. We have also been given the
unique opportunity to return in the coming days to do a one off photo shoot of
this unbelievably crafted G2 tactical rifle on its return.

Whilst there we managed to poke our heads into the
draftsman’s office and catch a glimpse of the new and latest tactical rifle to
come from Rangemaster Precision Arms. We had the chance to try the action and
found the action to surpass expectations and quality of other rifles currently
available. This is all we can say for now until this fantastic tactical rifle
is launched at IWA Nuremberg 2013.

Rangemaster Precision Arms has also stated the rifle will be
available for viewing on a MOD range for civilian shooters to come and have a
go and get a feel for this high quality tactical rifle. 308sniper hopes to bring
you full photos at a later date.

 

It’s clear to see Rangemaster Precision Arms have the
perfect factory setup to deliver high quality products as seen in the new
tactical rifle. We could see from the production every detail has been covered,
we can also see the quality in the finished product.

The new rifle is the perfect tactical rifle and continues on
with the same precision as previous Rangemaster rifles.

 

Overall we would rate Rangemaster Precision Arms 10/10

Kestrel 4500NV

 

25/11/2012 Review of the Kestrel 4500NV Pocket Weather
Tracker with HORUS Atrag ballistics software.

 

We have been previously using the normal Kestrel 4500NV and
found it to be great to get the weather data to upload into a separate ballistics
Computer. But that was always the issue what we tend to do is get to the range
and collect the weather data to upload to the ballistics computer. By the
afternoon conditions may have changed and we need to update the separate computer.

 

However now with the Kestrel 4500NV Pocket Weather Tracker
with HORUS Atrag ballistics software this has all changed as the weather is
live and the data can be transferred by Bluetooth straight to a laptop or
tablet.

 

The Atrag ballistics software has an extensive library of
weapons and rounds and can be fully customisable so suit you. Yes it takes a
while to set up at first but once you have all you rifles etc loaded in and all
your loads ready your set to go. One of the great features of this is the
target screen you can customize up to five targets for location, distance,
direction, declination and wind; this is great for multiple target ranges or in
the field. This together with the feature like direction of fire, target speed
estimator, inclination angle and being able to display Range cards makes a
great package. We have found to get the most from this unit you need to set it
up on the tripod with the wind vein and Bluetooth all the data to a laptop,
however it still works great as a hand held device. Yes it’s a little on the
expensive side but it is 2 units in one and has Bluetooth that works up to 30ft
away.

 

Measurements: Heading (true and magnetic), Wind Direction, Crosswind,
Headwind/Tailwind, Altitude, Pressure Trend, Barometric Pressure, Relative
Humidity, Heat Stress Index, Dewpoint, Wet Bulb Temperature, Density Altitude,
Wind Chill, Air, Snow and Water Temperatures, Current and Average Wind Speeds
and Maximum Wind Gust, Customizable 2900 Data Point Storage, Data Upload (with
optional interface). Unit is supplied with 2 AAA batteries, a soft carry pouch,
impeller cover, instructions and a Certificate of Conformity.

Note: This unit has a night-vision preserving backlight which helps users to
sustain natural night vision. The NV's backlight incorporates an optical filter
to reduce overall brightness and minimize blue and green spectrum light to
preserve night vision. Additionally, NV backlights are also much dimmer than a
standard backlight, making it more difficult to detect with the naked eye in
night operations. This backlight appears soft greyish pink, not red, and is
still in the visible spectrum, so is not compatible with night-vision equipment.

It takes 30 to 45 minutes for the average eye to adapt to darkness and
maximize night vision. Even a short burst of white, yellow, green or blue light
“bleaches out” the rod cell photoreceptors in the eye and causes night blindness
until the entire adaptation process can take place again. Light in the red
spectrum does not cause this “bleaching out”, preventing night blindness and
night vision fatigue.

 

 

Overall we would rate
this 9/10 only because of cost and initial set up time.

Brass Catcher

04/11/2012 Review of the E&L Brass Catcher

 

When reloading its important to collect all your Brass up and not to get it
mixed up the easy answer is a brass catcher. It’s always been difficult to find
a Brass Catcher for a .308 rifle, but now E&L manufacturing have created
one.

The Brass Catcher also saves filling all your pockets up with used brass
when leaving the firing point as it’s all collected for you.

We have ordered and used a few of these now and the support we have received
has been top notch, Val at E&L always has the time to talk through your
requirements

 

Overall we would rate the E&L Brass Catcher 9/10 based on the quality of the product and the support they give.

 

You can find them at

http://www.brasscatchers.com/store/brasscatcher.html

 

The details they list on the .308 are

Stainless media tumbler

 

07/10/2012 review of the Stainless media tumbler

 

The worst part of shooting has got to be all the cleaning. It’s extremely
important to have clean brass when reloading.

Most of us use a vibrating tumbler with acorn media which works ok but you
end up with dusty brass that sometimes has bits of media in it, you then try
all different ways of finishing the clean off. So some of us have tried
ultrasonic cleaners which again works fine after being in the tumbler 1st or
left in for a long time with a couple of water changes.

So what’s the answer? Well it looks like the answer is here the stainless
media tumbler has got to be the best investment any re-loader can make. It’s so simple and gives a perfect result every time.

 

 

Simply put your de-primed brass in with water cleaner and the media and
leave for about 4hrs. After this drain and rinse and leave to dry so simple and
so perfect.

The only down side is as it comes from the states and is a bit on the heavy
side the postage is half the cost of the item.

I found the best place to purchase this is http://www.stainlesstumblingmedia.com

 

Overall we would rate this 9/10 Very good piece of kit, does use a lot of
water so a sink near by required.

Hornady Bullet Straightening Tool

 

16/09/2012 review of the Hornady bullet straightening tool

 

When it comes to precision shooting most of the work comes
from the good prep of your rounds.

One area which we have found can make a big difference and
improve your grouping is after assembly and straightening the bullet head in
the case.

This can serve two purposes because it not only allows all
the bullets to be straightened in the cases but you can adjust the seating of
the bullets to suit the rifle. What we found on tests is that on some bullets
with some rifles if the bullet is not seated far enough then once chambered the
bullet is pushes back out of position.

So what we concluded was to seat a bullet in the case and
straighten it, then chamber the round and eject it if the bullet is no longer
straight then further seating will be required. The adjustment of seating was
minor but the result we got where far better as the bullets where staying straight
every time.

 

We have been using the Hornady tool along side other tools
to compare the speed and ease of use. What we found is that most straightening
tools are the longest part of the operation but some tools make it easier than
others. The Hornady can take a bit of getting use to get quick at loading your
rounds in, and with all straightening tools practise is required to get use to
how to straighten the bullets up.

 

Overall we would rate the Hornady bullet straightening tool
7/10 a very nice tool but a little difficult to load quickly.

Vector Rangefinder Binoculars

 





09/09/2012 review of the Vector Rangefinder Binoculars

 

When it comes to shooting at different ranges its important to know the
exact distance to the target. Without correct ranging you will be unable to set
your ballistic's correctly and therefore your scope.

We have been using the Vector's for some years now and on testing we have
found these are the most accurate and clearest range finding binoculars on the
market. Especially important when shooting over 500 yards as this is where
other rangefinder fall down and the Vectors come into there own. We have
already posted information on Vector on our Range Finding page.

The main advantage of the Vector's is the simplicity of them just point aim
and press the button and range to target pops up. The Vectors also calculates
range from elevated positions.

 

Overall we would rate the Vectors 8/10 and the only reason for not getting 10/10 is the cost but quality does come at a price

Strelok

01/09/2012 review of ballistics software from Strelok

 

 

I have been using this software for a while now and it keeps getting better. If you’re looking for quality ballistics software for shooting multiple ranges then look no further. This is one of the first ballistic calculators that has a reticle display that works so you can really use the mil dots in the scope to aim off at different ranges.

 

Strelok is available on iphone and android. Personally I have been using the iphone/ ipad version, I started with the base version and was so impressed I quickly upgrade to the Strelok + version. I now use both versions as I like to have the table and the reticle views.

 

There is a great list of scopes on the software and more seem to be added all the time, yes there are some missing but I have found you can find one the same in other scopes .

 

Above and below are some screen shots of what is available from the software.

 

Yes there are down sides to the software like the screen view is only available is portrait not landscape but that said you can email the screens out and print them in landscape. Not all scopes are available but as I said before you can usually find one the same or similar.

 

For more information click here to visit the Strelok website

 

 

 

Overall we would rate Strelok 9/10
