Hi.


My names is Guy and I am originally from just outside Cardiff though now living amidst the deer
and boar of the Forest of Dean.
I picked up my 1st gun aged 9 and mainly used the 12 bore, But finally got my FAC through about a year ago and have been going after the local rabbits and foxes.
I am looking to start getting into stalking this year so any advise on who or where would be warmly received.


Cheers


Guy

Thanks Mo. On the subject of advice and as I take it from your handle your a 243 man, would you recommend any particularly weight / type of bullet I know it can be specific to the gun but I could do with a starting point. I am reloading my own ammo at the mo but what would you recommend for Roe / Fallow? Some say 100grain min others 80 ???? What’s your take?
PS I have an SSG-69 in 243 with a 1 in 10 if that helps.
Cheers
