Anglo Arms pellets

I but some of these pellets in.22 for use in my Webley Spectre. What a disappointment. The look to be 'bashed about a bit' with bent skirts and some are well over size.

Re: Klever Quick Browning

I have also heard that cold bluing fades. I have only used cold bluing for touch ups and I like to leave a very thin coat of oil over the bluing. My theory is that oil form a moisture barrier between the bluing and atmosphere and helps maintain the bluing. I only gently wipe my barrels with a soft c...

Re: Scoring conundrum

I score in excess of a thousand cards a year and I've come across this a few times. It can be very difficult to find a close fit two pellet hole and the method I use is to select the most likely looking hole and insert a scoring gauge of the correct calibre and if I can feel any slight sideways move...
