    Question Articles for the Home Page

    I have been looking at adding to the front homepage articles to improve the information we are putting out there.

    The sort of thing that could lend itself well to an article is the kind of thing that comes up in discussion often and could include:

    1) Deer info - sexing, ageing, id'ing - the list is endless!
    2) Legal info - relevant laws, FAC info/conditions etc
    3) Reloading info/guides?
    4) Safety practices
    5) Equipment
    6) Stalking techniques
    7) etc etc??

    I would be keen to know what information people would feel would add the most benefit.

    Also, if any resident experts in any of these fields are willing to contribute text, wisdom, photos etc that would be great too!

    What do you think?

    Thanks Iwrch!

    Another suggestion by PM for FAQ or article - twist rates

    I'm not sure why people are being coy and preferring to PM me instead of posting in here for discussion

    How about a link to the powder and bullet manufacturers loading charts?

    Free ballistic software;

    These are informative too;

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    How about a link to Hornady's excellent ballistics calculators,

    Alex, If it could be done with the likes of Ken Oehler's permission?, A really useful addition would be the Oehler ballistics curve charts, for the more common calibres used in stalking deer & even the humble .22LR, for those who are being forced to get their shooting skills off the ground with this round.
