Fieldsports Britain – Tim’s crackers about carbon rifles

New materials are revolutionising rifles. The same carbon technology that’s creating amazing new bicycles, tennis rackets and fishing rods has come to guns. Tim gathers together seven examples, from Browning, Blaser, Sako, Sauer, Mauser and Dane & Co, gives them all the once-over and looks at increasing his carbon footprint. We are also reporting form the Isle of Wight, where birds kill 200 lambs this season on a single farm – and now Natural England wants to release 60 sea eagles there. In his Smokin’ Targets series, Ben Husthwaite has a simple tip for clay shooters: use your core not your hands when trying to get on to the target. Plus there’s News and Hunting YouTube in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain.
