Thread: Hello from Aberdeenshire !!

  1. #1

    Hello from Aberdeenshire !!

    Hi Folks
    I have just come back to shooting after a 10 year break due to work commitments and really enjoying it again.
    I had to get all the equipment again and things have moved on a bit.
    I have just recently purchased two new rifles
    1: Sako 85 synthetic/stainless .270 with T8 mod and S&B 6x42
    2: CZ .22lr with mod and a cheap scope.
    I really like the Sako it is a nice smooth rifle which I am looking forward to using a lot.
    My stalking consists of Roe and Red with a bit of bunny clearance thrown in just for the excitment value.
    I have had a look through your forum and read some pretty interesting articles so I am looking forward to reading and learning more !!!

    Welcome to the forum. Ive gone for a Predator 8 mod on my 243 but I have opted for the S&B 6x42 too (based on advice from this forum).

    What sort of range are you happy using the scope to?

    Looks like we have good numbers here in the North east infact enough for a pincer movement on union street.
    You lads get plenty of local stalking for roe's then or do you venture further afield ?

    Most of mine is to do with my job, but I do have a couple of recreational corners here and there .My brother also runs the Stalking school up at Carron ,so plenty of scope there to if need be .
    I am planning to go south before the end of march maybe to try and knock over a Muntjac or two ,nothing set in stone yet ??
