  4. Copper 308 load

    I use the 130gn TTSX in a 30-06 and have found them pretty good on reds to muntjac. I got best results push them at the higher end of the velocity range and loaded to the length in the published data. Data is published freely online by Barnes.
  5. Stalking/hunting in Denmark

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience or recommendations for hunting in Denmark. I will likely be visiting next year and wanted to know if there were any opportunities that I could look into. Thanks in advance - Mike
  6. Defrosting - Mincing - Refreezing - Opinions?

    I quite oftem make sausages like this. As previously mentioned, keep it as close to frozen as your mincer with get through and keep all your kit cold. I haven't killed anyone yet, so gets my vote.
  7. .308 bullet choice

    I personally use 130gr barnes ttsx - have worked well for me at "normal" UK ranges from munties to reds. Driven at about 3000-3100 they are pretty flat shooting and terminal performance has been good to date.
  8. .223 for Muntjac

    I also work in procurement. You have my sympathy.
  16. BASC discount

    Currently talking to them about an SUV - a really good deal and the dealer they use (for most brands) are really helpful.
  17. 375H&H - Good reason and UK use?

    I explained that I hunted larger species in forestry (sans hound) at last light. I had experience of 30 cal not exiting on larger animals and wanted to make sure I could shoot through both shoulders and still get an exit ( and blood trail).
