    243 Build

    I have never known any different sure it’s not essential but I would prefer to shot a 243 with a mod as a general comment.......................Fox / small deer would be less disturbance to other fox/deer. Houses? Other people? keeping a low profile? Less recoil? Less noise for your ears ? Looking at what you use and your experience you will know this? Every situation / person is different but you see very few pictures of roe / fox rifles without a mod. This may be a clue

    .22LR Dilemma

    Martin, My Ruger 10/22 came from rimfire magic. I just use subsonic ammo for pest control / few targets for fun. I got a few spare mags to cover any issues but it has always fed well. Its well customised for what I want. I love it.

    Reloading bench size / area

    1000 x 600 should be enough for press and bench and to get a chair in next to it. G clamps can be used to hold priming tool and trimming tool just when you need them. mine is also bigger than it needs to be 2000 x 620 x 40 bench set on 2 sets of draws with 2 shelves above. One has the powder dispenser on it and scales at eye level

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Interesting a varmint bullet designed to fragment is the best you have come across for chest shooting roe. I was thinking it would be a non starter but I have a feeling my 88gr Berger varmint will be fine. I shot a 4 inch post today at 100m exit was about double the size of the entrance. My old soft points would have had a bigger exit. 55gr soft points in my 223 seemed perfect on roe. But They hardly ever exited. I never lost any and meat damage was non existent. Thanks for the feed back

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Update re the 88gr Berger varmints I have head shot a Roe at 70M. perfect dropped on the spot good penetration and exit devastating. I also shot a crow over 230M away stone dead the bullet passed through it with little / no evidence of expansion. Not explosive like a blitz king. I think less than a V max also. I am yet to chest shoot a Roe with these bullets but I have a feeling they will be fine. Sam

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Thanks The soft point would be a good starting point if the Betgers are not up to it

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Ok thanks for that and it sounds like they are worth a try my last comment was a bit harsh thanks for the advice.

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Accurate caliber yes. But comparing say 0.2 moa br vs a good 243 0.5 moa? I think many more variables come in over the accuracy of the rifle after a long Adrenalin filled stalk. I get what you are saying but a chest shot is always nice to have up your sleeve and my preference. Seen neck shot deer react like they were never hit. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond but when it comes to recommending bullets for shooting deer you should have some first hand experience of the bullet in question not just agreeing with the previousevpost?? Having said that I will try a chest shot and see how I get on. If I am impressed I will take that comment back! thanks Sam

    Ok so what I want is someone to come on here and say I have chest shot 100s of Roe with 88gr varmint bergers and they perform just fine......
