After two cancellations due to adverse weather for our long-range F Class competitions, I'm hoping to join 60 of my fellow members on the 1000 yard firing-point on Sunday - fingers crossed......

Last Saturday we had a wet and very windy CSR match at Diggle.

But very enjoyable it was though and a great crowd of equally damp shooters, I even seemed to have called the wind right but failed on an elevation change by a couple of clicks to bring me back down to earth.
I do love shooting at Diggle I just don't get there enough.
Arming the Country, one gun at a time.

Good deals with Paul101, Charlotte the flyer, majordisorder, Charlie Muggins, among others. Thanks everybody.

It was lovely on the Sunday - warm and sunny but the wind at 1000 yards was unreadable!

Just my luck. Wind has always been interesting at Diggle. ;)

Went to a WWII museum near Boston on Sunday (We'll Meet Again - well worth a visit, had a chat with the owner, nice chap and very passionate about his collection). Nice and sunny but it was windy.

Hello
Cannot sell my Hex receiver Mosin Nagant dated 1926 so this weekend with the help of some 100+ Bulgarian corrosive primer ex military ammunition I am going to have a Stalingrad day on the range, only wish my eyes were better with open sights. Still the fun factor is damn fine

A nice sunny, warm, dry, windless day forecast for Diggle on Saturday, similar, but slightly cloudy forecast for Sunday. I'll be up on the next hilltop across about a mile about - trying to miss a cloud of clays.

Typhoon S1 shotgun… hoping that this time the gas regulator is in the right way around… (it wasn’t at SAW so ended up being a straight pull rather than a semi)…

You can't beat the fun of a Mosin! I need to get mine out again this year as I still have a few hundred military surplus rounds to go through. Thankfully its scoped so offers a change from the Enfield.

I hope your shoulder is up to the 100 round bashing though! I could feel it (and had a little discolouring!) on mine after my last outing of 60-70 rounds of 54r followed by about the same of 303. :good:
