I am thinking of getting myself a lever action and I would be grateful for some advice.
I currently have a 308 which I am very happy with, but fancy trying either a lighter roe calibre or a heavier red/potential driven boar round.
On the lighter calibres, are there any deer legal (scotland) traditional lever actions? Perhaps 30/30 can be made roe legal? How's their stopping power?
If none of the classic cartridges are deer legal, then I guess I'm limited to Browning BLR? These seem to be mainly sold in good old 308 or 270WSM, and I can try finding a cheap old BLR that needs a new barrel and getting it converted into something funky? I read that a 270WSM can have a bit of a kick without a mod and I guess will be a bit of an overkill for roe? Is brass easy to buy?
Am I right to think that you need at least 7mm for boar in Europe?
