D&G are being sticky on letting me shoot any uk quarry with .375 h&h because it is too powerful although I can homeload a 200gr deer legal round delivering as little as 2775 ft/lb's @ 2500fps.
I can zero but not shoot the reds or sika on my property but the guidelines say:
13.35 ........'Calibres such as
the .375 (9.5mm) are at the lower end of
those suitable for shooting “dangerous game”
but may, once initial “good reason” has been
established, also be used for shooting the
larger deer species in Britain. Expanding
ammunition may also be authorised for an
applicant whose certificate allows for the rifle
also to be used for shooting deer in Britain.'.....
Who knows of people with a .375 h&h that can shoot deer/boar etc?
