    first 223 reload

    If I had a programme I would run the data for you but I rely on others with a programme to do it for me.

    first 223 reload

    It’s not a bad place for someone starting out AND it would have that bullet and that powder combination

    Del, have you run your required load through a ballistic programme? It would give you min and max recommendation it will Take into account al the variables. Normally load up on .2 increments. any experiance re loaders near you that can help / teach you to develop your first round? Even if you have to pay it would be money well spent. Good luck it’s not too complicated But it must be safe and your gear must be set up and calibrated correctly a bit of reasurance to start with is worth its weight in gold. good luck its a great thing to load your own

    I still use theses so they are not surplus to requirement. For what it’s worth I get on well with 50gr Sierra blitz kings on fox
  8. It would be good to have a range like this where an individual could book and shoot as it would suit some to do this once or twice a year but I understand the regulations you operate under and it is sounds straight forward. What does it cost to join?

    Dodgy peepers.

    I get them too. I have never really noticed them causing trouble when looking through a scope.

    But also the 6mm comments on this post are completely justified. as it would do your primary request well (fox) but also a perfect Roe round and legal in England. You would have all bases covered. I have one for this but i dont know your situation.

    I was in this position a few years ago when moving up from rimfire to center fire and i thought a 22 hornet would be all I need for some longer range crows. My first response when some one said why not just get a 223 was that it was more than i was after "overkill"..............its the best advice anyone has ever given me. I loved the centre fire and moved on to fox, Scottish Roe,longer range gongs, and targets for fun i could not have done ALL this with a lesser caliber. You could argue for a dedicated fox rig the .204 would be great and many love them but im sure you CF shooting will develop. We are all going through this journey just some are further down the line than others. If i was starting again i would go straight to a 1/8 twist tikka super varment in 223, factory trigger is good and easy to work on if required, I quite like the stock its perfectly good enough, its not too heavy. I also like the sound of the CZ short action mention above a good option. Plenty of other options a different price points but the 1/8 or 1/9 (CZ) is important for the heavier loads. If you go 2nd hand get it checked out before you part with the cash if you know nothing about the rifle. easy to load for (which i now do and never thought i would when starting out) shed loads of factory ammo with all the bullet types you need and the 1/8 will stabilise the heavier end which will be helpful in bucking the wind. Good luck with what ever you end up with. Sam
