Iím just starting out on my stalking career, and I donít know where to go for lists of available factory loads. For shotgun cartridges, a website like justcartridges.co.uk provides me with a list of just about every commercially available shotgun cartridge in the UK, together with details of their loads, ballistics, etc. Where can I go for something similar for rifle ammunition?
Iím playing Fantasy League Rifle Purchase at the moment, but I also need to research this stuff as I will at some point this year be applying for an FAC. Iíd like to go for a .270 as most of my stalking is likely to be for roe and muntjack, but Iím also likely to go boar shooting with my brother in law in France on occasion. The .243 is inadequate for this, and any current or ex-military calibre is illegal for hunting in France, so no .30-06, 6.5x55 Swedish etc. As I understand it, the .270 is available in so many loads that I should be able to use quite light ones for most of my stalking here, and upgrade when/if I shoot boar. Itís been suggested to me that the 7mm08 would suit my needs too, but there isnít the variety of factory ammunition.
Can anyone help (Iím sure you can)?
