Ammo, what fodder to feed the piggies


.22 rf I use either CCI subsonic or green tag when I do the odd match.
.303, I still have some HXP for running deer but I handload 125 grain soft points for real deer. Everything else is handload using either new S&B brass or reloading Federal or speer.
I load, .223, 7.62 x 39, .308, 6.5 x 55, 7.62 x 55, 22-250, all bar the 7.62 x 39 using IMR 4895, I use N120 for the little russian.
I will be loading 7x57 next year as well.
I know this is in reply to an old post, but I'm just trawling on my first forray into ARRSE shooting. No sniggers please.
For piggies I never had any run away with a 308 poked through the ribs. I've used 150 grn Mag tips, 180 grn Vulkan and 165 grn Grand Slam in the past, all with good (dead pig) results.


Well I bought a digital scale and electronic powder meassure, a few quid but the saving on setting up time is astonishing and well worth it!
