Got a letter in the post today from a company I do some stalking for saying that they are changing some of their rules with regards to stalking on their land.
Previously their minimum calibre was a .243 which is no problem as I have one however they have decided that rather than have this minimum calibre, there is to be a minimum on bullet weight instead, which unfortunately for me is higher than the .243 can put out.
Currently there are only roe on the land however sika are moving into the area and I think this may be their reasoning behind the change. I can see where they are coming from and understand totally and to be honest I cant complain as the stalking costs me nothing.
The reason I am so gutted is, I bought my ideal rifle earlier in the year and after a few months have finally found what appears to be the best bullet match for it, got a brand new moderator to suit it and over the past few weeks have finally got it shooting tight home load groups.
Got space for a 6.5x55 on my ticket which will comply so looks like im going to have to buy a new rifle and go through it all again, cant work out if thats a bad thing or a good thing
