New to the Site

Hello All,

This is a great website! I've been poking around here reading for about a week, and I'm glad to have come across such a enjoyable and rich resource. I live in the Seattle area, but have my eyes set on the eastside of the Cascades around Wenatchee in a few years. I've been hunting since I was 7 - Birds, Small, Med. and Lg. Game, and love it all. Rifles, Pistols and Shotguns mostly, but I shoot a Mathews Q2 Bow as well - also love fishing. I recently sold my Winchester Mod.70 w/B.O.S.S. in 300 Win Mag (I already regret it) and now I'm looking for a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Compact Magnum blued/Walnut in .308Win. (as in my profile pic) for a woods gun. Anyway, glad to be here!

Thanks Guys! Don- no dogs at

Thanks Guys!

Don- no dogs at this point due to my job has me working way too many hours! I did have a very talented English Springer from English field stock when I lived on the East Coast.

When I was shooting a lot back in the late 90's, I was reloading .45ACP and .223/5.56 on a Dillon XL650. I do plan to get back into it and work up loads for .308win for hunting. I'll be doing that on a Hornady Lock-N-Load AP progressive press this time around. I want to work up a great all-around load I can use for whitetail up to elk out to 300+yrds. Maybe 165-180gr. Nosler Partition, Hornady Interbond, etc. I'll probably start out with Varget powder? Anyway, that's all at the rolling-around-in-my-head stage. I'm also looking forward to seeing how well the Warne and Talley QD rings are for holding zero after re-mounting the scope....so much to do, so little time....
