    Cool , have a read of this What .308 powder alternative? and this http://www.vihtavuori.com/en/reloading-data/rifle-reloading/-308-winchester.html speak to your mate ask if he single loads or mag and measure a round oal the 180 is a long bullet looking at your QL its 31.14 mm to start with . In one of my old books H414 max load is 47.1 @ 2500 with 22" 1 in 12 . Cheers

    There are lots of powders that cover different calibre's , the powders have different burn rates so one for your 243 with a certain bullet weight would work with the 308 with a certain weight , N140 works well with the 22.250 with 55 gr and 150 plus weight with 308 so easier to find one powder . Also as mentioned we will lose a lot good powders this year so a lot of folk will be load developing me included luckly when there have been shortages I have developed other loads . The 180 gr is a good bullet with a 10 twist barrel there for in a slower twist would be slower and slower again in a shorter barrel by all means load them up and see how they group and what velocity you can get , Check out with your keeper mate his powder choice and oal of his rounds and do they fit in the mag or single feed but DONT use his rounds in your rifle . Keep us posted what you find out .

    Are you intent on using the same powder for both rifles ? I have used N140 in 22.250 and 308 so find a powder that runs in both calibre for piece of mind when looking for supplies . Depending on barrel length and twist the 180 would be a big lump to fire . It's fine in a bigger calibre and a faster twist barrel . (twice the amount of powder ) you would struggle for velocity in a standard twist and a shorter barrel . I wouldn't be bothered with Quickload as it's a indication , for the most 308 loads it would be 46gr + or - with a 150gr bullet for the barrel twist and length , the starting load would be reduced from max recommended by 10 % and work up in 1/2 grains till you find the velocity and grouping , load to recommended oal then they fit in the mag .

    Price of deer?

    You need to be sure you understand what your getting . the price for the outing , then if there is a price to shot a beast , then if you buy a price per kilo . If you badly shoot and damage the carcase you could be charged as well because unable to sell on , I have had leases were you are there to control the deer and all carcases go in the larder , and you purchase at dealer price . In your case if your controlling for your farmer , agree how many to be take then get a dealer price for the carcase . when your paying per outing get it very clear what your doing or you might get a surprise .

    High seat question...

    I think if you put it against a tree and ratchet strapped it ok . but in real terms you would be very lucky to find flat enough ground to be safe free standing .

    Check these bad boys out .

    What this guy is doing is hand making this and he is saying he is using a certain type of lead ( its all explained in his text) which can form to the rifling contour and give a bearing surface like a bullet . I hope my guy gets his act together and goes for it , or I will buy a pack for my self and give them a run . toolebox / do read any Nathan Foster articles ... ATB

    Check these bad boys out .

    I have past this link on to a guy that is set up for importing and could set this up , and waiting for his comments . I need a 5.52 head size so if the imperial sizing would allow this also may be his lead type and tolerances would make it a runner . His comments are he has tried these through a list of rifles .

    Stalking Dog Question

    Great post going on here , Have a read of Guy Wallace's books , when I was out in Caithness he had training dogs on a lead to his waists and never seemed to be an issue with pulling etc , also dogs under high seats would be steady and only move to wind direction . I don't have a dog but love the thick as thieves relationship you have when working together . ATB
