Thread: First visit

  1. #1

    First visit

    "HELLO TO ALL" First may i thank you for the entertainment over the last couple of weeks, "sitting alone upstairs, laughing at a computer" prompted several visits by a nosey wife! (mine unfortunately). Secondly, as a newcomer to deer stalking, i am amazed at the amount of knowledge and information so freely given; much appreciated.

    ME: 53,Burton on Trent, retired fire service,ex rugby player, shot all my life, make funny (unusual) noises (groans) when bending, standing or kneeling? and still don`t recognise the chubby grey haired old guy looking back at me in the mirror!!

    At present, running in the barrel of a new 243 howa, 1500 sporter, using saco twin head nosler soft point 100 grs. Although just chucking bullets down the barrel, the saco`s do not appear to like the 1in10 twist of the rifle. Any suggestions or experience? Thanks, TONY M.

    Hi Tony, if you would like some help developing a good round for your Howa I will volunteer my help and my kit. I have .243 dies and all the gadgets and am just round the corner from Burton. Drop me a line and we'll see what can be arranged.

    Didn't realise the membership was so 'burtoncentric'. Nice to hear from folks from the town of my birth. My folks still live nearby.
