I live in Cumbria and have been stalking for the past 8 years, although I have had an interest in shooting since I was a child. I like to get out stalking most weekends, wife and kids permitting. I usually stalk Roe Deer and I managed to bag my first buck of the new buck season yesterday.
I use a Ruger M77 Mk 2, 6.5 x 55, for my stalking. I thoroughly enjoy using my 6.5, it has never let me down. However, on occasions, I might have let it down. I load my own ammo, I usually use 120gr ballistic tip Nosler Spitzer. Although, I have recently loaded some rounds using 120gr Hornady GMX solid copper heads. They zeroed ok, but I have yet to use any in anger.
I look forward to engaging you with in the Forums.
