.223 Or .243

Recommended Posts

Flippen ek...6 pages and still going...

 

.243 is an excellent and versatile calibre for fox and deer with the variety of ammo available.

 

Start there and you will find out for yourself if it works for you!

On a serious note, for every single calibre out there you will get for and against comments, at the end of the day it is more important to feel confident in the rifle and ammunition, if you are, you will shoot well with it, they will all kill deer, and everyone has a favourite, Dan mate, do your research, and whatever you get, make sure it fits and feels comfortable, find the ammunition it likes and make sure you have a ready supply, or even better start reloading, get a.25-06 point it in the right place, the deer will fall down, :yes: enjoy.

You are correct sir, it makes very good sense, the .25-06 death ray is all he will ever need and more :yes:

I cant afford the powder to reload the .25-06 :cray: and just dont seem to be able to work out the vast ark of the turnips trajectory, so I am afraid I will have to stick to something flat shooting pal :yes:

Ohh it's easy to work out the trajectory of a 6.5 just pop outside and throw a house brick down the garden then measure the distance job done lol

Thanks Danw, I will pass that on to the Seeker, I will see him tommorow night, he will be chuffed to bits, always causes problems working it out, if a target is more than 25-30 yards away :D

Mines bigger than yours ;)
