    miss fires

    The very fact you have asked this question demonstrates you have doubts about whether they will fire in the field. I would not be happy to use them because the last thing you need in the field is doubt, or a click when the deer of a lifetime steps out broadside at 50yds. Use them for plinking or range use. It’s not worth the worry factor for the sake of some new primers.

    “Engineering components” is a good one... 😉

    I’m sure one of the rfd’s will chip in here, but how many and what’s the package weight?

    308 hunting loads

    Start with a Sierra 150 grain soft point (game king or pro hunter). Powder wise each manufacturer will have a powder and load data to suit. Something in the vit 140 or 150 burn rate range. Choose a powder you can get locally and reliably.

    .243 comparisons to 6br

    If you have a future change of heart the 243 will be easier to sell, but there’s clearly more to it than that.... A good second hand T3 Varmint with a bit of load development would (I would hope) shoot every bit as well On the ranges the 243 might be a bit out of fashion and hasn’t got the “custom” bling factor, but I am sure the crows, foxes and v bulls won’t complain whether it was a 243 case or a 6br case spat the vmax their direction i assume you reload given the choice of 6 br cartridge, but at least with 243 you can pick up a box of rounds in any gunshop if you’re running low of unable to get components
  7. I’m a big fan of vxiii’s myself, have two (8.5-25x50 and 4.5-14x50 ill) and picked a redfield 3-9x40 for my 308 woodland stalker, lifetime warranty too!
  8. Redfield Revolution 4-12x40? (I believe made in the Leupold Oregon factory to the older vxii spec) or an older leupold 6.5-20x40 target? Redfield would be about £250 ish older leupold maybe a few quid more, Edinburgh Rifles has one on their guntrader listing https://www.guntrader.uk/dealers/edinburgh/edinburgh-rifles-sporting-goods/equipment/sights-optics/6-5-20x40-vari-x-191108095004527 👍🏻
  9. Received today as promised and described, many thanks, Stumpy👍
