    First Roe with new rifle [Remington 700 SPS S/S .223] [Scotland]

    Hi
    Picked up new rifle on 1/12/10. Remington 700 SPS S/S .223.

    Have been up at my target trying out some new load's with VihtV N133, and got one that i am happy with 55gr Sierra Gamekings .3 @ 100yds,

    So went for a stroll this morning to where i know there's a small family of Roe's that the estate owner is not happy with because of the tree damage they are causing, so they have to be culled or a few taken out.

    Got the chance this morning and one Doe was taken from the group.

    Nice one Black lab.

    I use the same Gamekings with Varget and get very good accuracy. Same powder load i use 55grn Vmax for foxing really good results.
    i like the 223

    well done Wullie, the 223 is a sweet round to use and very very effective on the roe.

    Cheer's Guy's for all the remark's.

    Was out today giving the crow's a scare, until the blizzard started and put an end to the sport.

    Nice one, it's a shame we can't use .223 down here... they can certainly do the business with the right bullet and load.

    Who knows, when the firearms legislation is re-written maybe they'll allow it.... Whoa!!! what was that?
