    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.

    .22LR Dilemma

    Hello Martin, Welcome to the forum. Sam
  5. Sierra Game King 6mm 85Grn HPBT (100 Pack) (S1530) need to load a roe round for my 6 br 1/9 twist. Would like to use N140 . It loves 88gr varmint bergers sent at 2960 FPS Would these hollow points above be a good starting point any help would be welcome. Always got on well with soft points in my 223. Would like to use the same powder and achieve a similar POI if poss. Sam

    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

    6mm roe deer bullet

    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......

    6mm roe deer bullet

    With limited quarry use I’m not impressed with the 88gr bergers 1 roe neck shot. 2 crows. One 4inch post I don’t think they clout like a soft point? I would love them to do the job the last thing I want to do is load another round. I will try a chest shot roe . Not convinced tell me more re a test on water bottles wet paper? What’s the bench mark?

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Hi Neil Thanks very much for this it is very helpful. I have a very accurate "target, small vermin" load sorted with 30.7gr of vit 140. 88gr berger 1/9 twist 22.5in barrel 2960fps. I now need a soft point type Roe bullet. I am more interested in how the bullet performs than the ultimate accuracy as 0.5 moa will be fine for Roe ranges say 150M or less. It would be very convenient to load with N140 My thinking was Sierra seem to make good bullets, the 85gr is the closest weight to my 88gr bergers and I was hoping for the same POI. I know this is not always the case. 1/ i need confirmation that this bullet will be good/the best for chest shooting vital organs on Roe? are there any better soft points out there of a similar weight? I found factory sako gameheads very good in my previous rifle on Roe not sure what bullets they use? 2/ to have a chance of getting a similar POI is 85gr a good starting point? im sure several have been in this position before re a new load. It might be the only way is experimenting? Thanks Sam
  19. If “the usual” goes wrong can I have 2nd dibs please

    Advice needed. Chamber issues

    Have you checked the spring is ok on the ejector claw that is positioned on the bolt? I have had this with my 223 but never with factory ammo just home loads and only a few (they were not as hot as the factory looking at the brass/primer) even then it was more a gentle tap to get them out and no more. it seemed the claw was slipping off the case head leaving a very small mark/ scuff on the rim of the base. I did end up carrying a cleaning rod in my truck just in case! not sure it should take a "real good bump" to get them out?

    Double rifle sling

    My rifle is cumbersome when slung on my shoulder. Muzzle down is too close to the ground, normal way is top heavy due to mounting point and weight of mod / bi pod it just slides to the horizontal. is a double sling the answer ? If so any recommendation ? thanks Sam
  22. Done, thanks for bringing to my attention

    Double rifle sling

    Thank you for taking the time for that detailed reply it is much appreciated as there seems to be no clear winner. Also reminding me that I have managed for a few years without needing to wrap my sling around a tree! The sticks are fine. thank you

    Double rifle sling

    May I ask if you use this and like it?

    Double rifle sling

    Yes I can see what you mean, it looks like the secondary strap should connect lower down to the main strap to stop it riding up under the arm pit
