    Back to hunting after a few years(decades) off

    Hi everyone.

    After starting hunting in the late 80s/early90's and having a while off, I've caught the bug again. Been reading the forum for a year or so now and loving the willingness of everyone to share their knowledge and tips.

    After working up some loads for 243 and 270 based on the info members have shared, thought i'd better sign up so I can say thanks.

    Thanks!

    Butch

    Welcome back to the fold!

    Have you had any hunting success with your new loads? Animal numbers are probably a lot better than the late 80s when we both got started with hunting.

    yes, certainly a lot more animals around now. If you saw a deer back then it was a successful hunt

    Welcome
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
