Make your rifle perfect – Fieldtester, episode 12

We’re all about shooting sticks for shooting deer, extraction kit for hauling the carcase home, and a beginner’s guide to mounts. David hosts, Tim Pilbeam and Roy Lupton chat, and all three of them try a variety of modern shooting kit. It’s the new episode of Fieldtester – the Gadget Show for shooting sports. Meanwhile, James Marchington is off to the NSRA at Bisley to find out about batch-testing ammunition – how ammo manufacturer RWS makes sure you ammo is ‘of quality’.
