Kev my 223 is a 22 inch barrel 1:8 twist t3 lite
That's a great twist rate, it will stabilise from a possible 40gr up to around 80gr maybe even heavier.

You could try some 40g 223 ammo , if you want to speed things up.....
I gave the 40grain 223 ammo a go but they where nowhere near as flat shooting as the 53gr vmax.

Re: 204 or 22/250

Have you tried some light projectiles in the .223 Chris such as the vmax 53gr which has a good bc? My vote goes to the 22-250 if I had to choose either from your choice as my .223 does everything and more than the 204 can do.

Re: Thermal Scope Target

As Bruce mentioned movement is the key to ID with thermal, Spend some time out watching wildlife moving around and you soon will get a good grasp on whats what. Had a fox the other night only 65m away but because it was curled up asleep id was impossible with the thermal, needed a quick squeak to ge...

Re: Thermal Scope Target

I made a box, a candle was put inside the box behind a metal plate, the plate warned up so you could see the heat as it touched the front target of the box from behind just in one place. everytime you shoot, you would see a big heat signature of your bullet hole, i have a video and pictures somewhe...

Re: Thermal Scope Target

Heat a washer up with a blow torch and hang in on a nail on your target board? Not practical, too much time wasted walking back and fourth re heating up the washer as it cools quick and the glow can be too big of an aim point to aim at. My method gives a crisp aimpoint that glows for at least 40 mi...

I just stick a bit of tin foil in the center of the target, job done.
Tried that but found it was useless out at 250m and on a sunny day target had to be facing a certain way which did not always provide a good backstop.

Thermal Scope Target

Just thought Id share my my thermal target for zeroing as I know its not the easiest of things to do with thermal. I have tried many methods but this is what works best for me day or night giving a crisp heat image. Its built from some batten scraps and the cheapest bits from toolstation and screwfi...

Re: Short Thermal Clip - Barn Owl Hunting

Awesome footage, I take my thermal everywhere with me now as its amazing what we miss at night. Though a week ago whilst out around the golf courses I thought I came across a human body, legged it up to the heat source with phone ready in hand to dial 999 to find out it was ash from a previous fire...
