    Does anybody know how to go about the Nitrogen/Argon Purging of Scopes?

    Roger Moy used to replace reticles for a certain type of scope and did this in the process. Might be worth dropping him a line.

    Hope you are continuing to recover well.

    Ta!


    Thanks Charlie.

    Yes body is responding well.

    I'm going to try a couple of competitions next month:
    BFTA Masters, North Petherwin, possibly South Devon & SWEFTA v WAFTA.
    I'm not going to put in scores on the SWEFTA League Comps though

    Went up to East Devon for a practice last Sunday, to try out my new reticle, 37ex50 all sitting though, no positional's.
    Range-finding was very good, only missed one on bad range & that was being careless & a little fatigued.
    The wind is just plain weird on some of those targets.
    Really good course though.

    If you can get hold of some Nitrogen/Argon, get a deep bucket or similar and take the front off the scope lay in the bucket and put a feed tube to the bucket ( as both gases are heavier than air ) it should go to the bottom and fill the scope and put the front back on whilst in the bucket, job done.
    Glad you are on your way to recovery Pete hope see you soon at a SWEFTA shoot.
