new member introduction

Hi there,
name's Alasdair,
recreational deer stalker in southern Scotland; not really a long range stalker, but good to have the ability in case it's needed!
Comparative new-comer to stalking (five years) and absolute beginner to re-loading.
Mostly Roe deer, using Sako .243 and (since starting re-loading) Barnes TSX 85 grain.

Been visiting the forum for a while to glean wisdom and learn, mostly about reloading, so only seemed polite to register!

Currently using Lapua cases, CCI primers and H4350 with a 21 inch 1:10 twist barrel. Not sure what MV I should be aiming at - currently getting a whisker over 3000fps with 40 grains H4350 with no signs of XS pressure (Hodgdson list 40.5 grain as max and 3141fps).

Grateful you are all out there and willing to share your experience, thanks.

Re: new member SCOTLAND!


didn't read instructions properly and failed to say in thread title that I live in Scotland.
- don't know if there is a way to amend a post, once posted?
