I have seen your site several times, and decided to join today. I'm preparing to go red deer stalking in Scotland at the beginning of October. This will be my 8th trip to Scotland. I have stalked in Deeside and Angus. In Kansas, I "hunt" whitetail deer every autumn, and my favorite rifles are 7 x 57, .30/06, and .300 Winchester Magnum. I enjoy hand loading for all of them. Mostly IMR and Hodgden powders with Nosler Ballistic tip bullets, and lately loading Barnes copper 180 grains for the .300 Win Mag. I am looking forward to reading about your stalking adventures,and learning from your experience. Cheers!
