I have decided to reload for this trip. I think I'll be just fine shooting all summer. I live in the east and groundhog hunting a few times a week isn't going to break the bank or cost me the proverbial "arm and a leg".
No offence intended but I'm hardly new to hunting, reloading, shooting, or practicing so I'm fairly confident that my shooting this summer will indeed help a great deal.
Its not the rifle itself I need get use to, its the recoil and ballistics that I need to master and that is something you just cannot do with a like rifle or reduced loads.
Thank you for your opinion though all comments are appreciated.
