    Thanks for the replies!!!
    Yes its a Roe deer and the does are in season for culling at the moment!!
    As for caliber , its all i got at the mo and the beauty of handloading , as we all know - you can have a mild load for the smaller deer and then throttle up for the big buggers!!!

    Oh, not really as it could have been something like a .223 but on second look, the action appears to be a long one.

    What chambering is it actually Ray?

    There is an old saying to beware of the man with only one gun;as he knows how to use it. Most of us have that one gun we turn to for pretty much everything, whether for hunting, targets and long range steel etc. It might not be the newest, the most expensive or even the most powerful, but when business needs to get taken care of, that one gun is there.

    Good to see a suppressor getting used over there, what make is it?

    As always -thanks for the replies!!!
    The moderator is a Hausken JM224 -nice and lite and a bloody good moderator!!!
    We stalk a mixture of woodland and open fields - so i think the 264 winmag will come in handy for the longer stuff and the Reds!!!!

    So what was the go to load for those wee guys? the lightest I ever tried was the 130 swifts and ended up staying with the 140 gameking and amax with mild loads at 3100fps.

    130 grainers doing 3000fps and good acuuracy - that was the first accuracy node and some others further up the scale!!!!
    I gather you have a 264 winmag too - what are the specs on yours please???
    All the best.
