    Deer Stalking / Hunting in Scotland

    What an interesting post. I visited Scotland on a golfing trip in 2007. We stayed in St. Andrews and played the Old Course as well a 5 others. It is a beautiful country with delightful folks. It has been my dream to stalk Red Deer Stag. Unfortunately I am past the time, that I could...

    What cartridge?

    My limit for elk is 1500 ft lbs. .300 WM or .300WSM with 200 gr bullets will surpass that at 800 yds. I shoot a .300 WSM, Gentry brake and Limb Saver recoil pad. Very pleasant to shoot, but LOUD. 7MM RM, 175 gr, 1500 fp, 750 yds. For elk, bigger is better.

    Wsm rifle

    I have been using the Federal Edge .200 Gr bullet in my Mod 70 .300 WSM. It is producing 1500 ft lb at 800 yds. That's as far as I care to shoot.

    New to long range and big game hunting

    I shoot a Mod 70 in .300 WSM. I put a Limbsaver recoil pad on it and it made a world of difference in felt recoil.

    Which adjustable front shooting rest for the bench?

    I've had a Bald Eagle rest for several years. I have the aluminum base and it is plenty heavy. You will need to buy a front bag for it. It doesn't come with one, and the cheaper Caldwell bag doesn't fit. Only the Bald Eagle $42 bag fits. For the price it is a very good rest.

    7mm SAUM vs 300 WSM for Elk/western hunting?

    I shoot a .300 WSM. Over the years, I have used Barnes, Nosler and Hornady bullets. Mostly 180 Gr. When Federal introduced their Edge TLR .200 gr bullet, I wanted to try it, however it was over a year before I was able to obtain bullets. Fortunately I was able to purchase a couple of boxes of...

    300WSM reloading bench for starters

    I shoot a Mod 70, .300 WSM. The load I have been using for the last two elk seasons in Montana is the Federal Edge TLR, 63.2 Gr RL16, CCI 250 Primers and Federal brass. 2830 FPS. I do sort bullets and cases by weight. I don't know if it makes that much difference, but I feel better doing it...
