    Here's an option

    Midway has some, but you have to purchase a box of 500. Might be worth it since they're hard to find...

    Mike - completely understand your pain. I've got some 168 hunting vld's on the shelf. Would be willing to give you 25 of them if you cover the shipping. Just let me know if you're interested.

    many thanks but i've changed tack as i can get 1500 classic hunters over here and very suprised to see the negligible drift/drop difference to the vld and hopefully easier tuning, as my chamber is long and only half the bearing surface in the case which worries me for hunting. hopefully i'm not trading off any accuracy,time will tell.. love your p.s. at the bottom. cheers mike
