    That counts me out then as I normally shoot 22-250 on Roe in Scotland

    As we call ourselves `Border Stalkers` it would only be fair to include Scottish legislation also so feel free to turn up.

    Sorry for late reply, I hadn`t checked this topic.
    We usually start about 10am or as soon as I get a detail of four persons together.
    Sometimes people want to check their zero on the pool shoot before entering the main event.
    Weather prospects look favourable.

    Local forecast for tomorrow is sun and clouds so we may get lucky.

    For our Bowscar site near Penrith come off the M6 at Junction 41 and take road to Penrith, when you reach the tree covered roundabout imagine you are a bird and could fly over for the road ahead going up-hill is the road to Bowscar and is signposted `Bowscar`. The white `Stoneybeck Inn` is to your left.
    Continue up the hill and the road bears to the right and passes a forest area, further on the road is straight with a forest and `T` junction in front of you. At this point you have arrived as the green containers and the gate on the left are part of the range.
    I hope the rabbits are on holiday ! Photo from the 100yd firing point shooting downhill.
