Hello from northern Germany

Post by Ishmael » Thu Oct 01, 2015 4:03 am

Hi all!

Im a hunter, 41 years old and living and hunting in northern germany. Currently i own a Blaser R8 Prof. Success in .308 Win with 22mm barrel (Jagdmatch) and a Blaser BS95 in 7x65R and 5,6x50R Magnum. Right now i plan on buying another R8 in 6,5x55 for hunting and competition shooting.
Almost a year ago i started with reloading and realized it is a lot of fun to build your own ammo :mrgreen:

Beside all that i go fishing too, ruinning with my dogs (belgian shepards) and program computers....

All the best from germany!
Ishmael

Hi Ishmael and welcome to Blaser Buds. You already know how nice the Blasers are. I visit Germany often and am forming a medical device company in Saxony Anhalt located in Magdeburg but I operate mostly out of Berlin. Is that anywhere near you? I hope you enjoy BB and share your hunting stories with us.

What is hunting competition?

Is it like moving targets or field positions?

Welcome aboard! Sounds like you have a good start on Blasers already and are putting them to use.

Welcome on board Ishmael. Blaser love is pretty frequent on this board ;) There are also lots of reloaders here.

Do you also practice long range shooting?
