    Twist rate

    Your speed of 3-3100 fps is very slow for those bullet weights so a good start would be to find a node higher up , an extra 2-300 fps should be easily achieved

    223 roe bullet

    Ive shot dozens of roe with .223 and have had no issues , it's dropped them more efficiently than bigger calibres including .243 and 6.5 . Put the bullet as tight to shoulder as possible without hitting it and slightly higher than half way up the body and they don't run far if at all . The 63 gr Sierra is a good choice and will shoot in a 1/12

  5. Depends what you want to shoot with it ,if it's light clay and pigeon loads then it'll cost you more to reload them than buy factory but if your a wildfowler loading your own shells with non toxic shot it will save you money and also give you better performance especially with steel shot

    The Grail

    Very nice indeed ,I always preferred the 77 to the newer 97 and being venom tuned is the icing on the cake .what calibre is it ?
  7. I used to have a howa in .223 and put it in a boyds stock and it definetly helped accuracy but mine was originally in the crap hogue rubber stock .I quite liked the boyds and was comfortable to use ,they have a new stock out now that's fully adjustable but not sure if there available over here yet ,over all for the money Id say there pretty good
