Go f*** yourself you f***ing retard.
Hi Shotgun most begginers start with a 243 and normaly use the 70g self loaded heads http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
I tend to try and steer clear of personal abuse but that's not on.
I said about roe, this is a fallow question.
Yes, 243 will see to a fallow no problem, but for them, you are going to want a decent deer bullet. Good heavy soft point or a Nosler Partition should do the trick.
It`s not on logic because you`ve lost control of your feelings..
You lack restraint and cannot handle pressure especially from fellow experience guy`s..
Anyway your little outburst is forgiven and was literally water off a ducks back http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
I can see that your obviously uncomfortable sharing this excellent forum with other pro`s but i`m sure you`ll get use to it http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
Personally Shotgun i`d keep the 22.250 and invest in a 308 that way you have one hell of a foxing round and an excellent all round Deer calibre..
So...reasoned logical response..This user has not configured their 'About Me' page and has not added a signature to their account yet.
For someone who revels in putting down the rest of the world with their all encompassing knowledge I find it strange you did not decide to promote your experience in your profile!
I also find it strange you struggle with the concept of Pest Control on Deer, there are some of us who do it on a regular basis and have no need or desire to pay stupid amounts of money for Game Deer Shooting..Bullet choice and calibre can be different for an assortment of reasons...commonly .308 is used on paid stalks where the customer cannot be relied on to shoot straight so a cannon has to be employed.
.308 ..an excellent all round Deer calibre...now you are having a larf, many dogs are bigger than a Muntjac or CWD.... and a Roe is still tiny and sanctioned for .22 cf at 1000ft lb in Scotland, perhaps you would be kind enough to explain why .308 (approx 2400-2800ft lb) is an excellent all round Deer Calibre.
Perhaps you need to tell the BDS, Home Office and Police the .243 is a mule or was it a goat, or perhaps you just need to get some instruction from someone who can use one!!
I have NEVER EVER, hit ANY Deer with a .243 and it didn't fall down, except one occasion at just short of 200 yards when one was already lying down, and the SP bullet hit him like a train, rolled him right over and left the exit wound upwards. But obviously I have been doing something wrong all these years as I need a .308.
My .308 comes out of the cabinet as required, but it is NOT my first choice deer calibre.
I've NEVER had a runner with my .243!!!...seems a lot of .308 shooters get them...so why would that be?????.... let me give you a clue, bullet placement and ammo choice!!
If you would like any more help just ask, more than happy to offer assistance!
You appear to need it, as by your own admission you suggest you come from Berkshire land of the fools
