Gentlemen (and ladies),
I've been fortunate enough to be awarded an FAC, among the empty spaces, one exists for a 6.5x55, for target.
Background, I'm a member of a club, but my goal would be stalking. Presently, I have only done pheasants etc with a shotgun.
The challenges are finding a good rifle with scope and then finding a place for stalking, preferably in East of England.
Suggestions for rifles? My local dealer has a 6.5x55 Sauer 202 with Zeiss scope 3-12 Victory for a hefty 2500. What does the panel think? I could strrrretch that far, if the opinion was that this could be an excellent price, for a go-to rifle.
I was hoping to spend a bit less for the package, but don't mind going for quality. I gather Sauers are very respected.
I'll repost again, looking for stalking once Ive got a rifle I can be happy with.
All suggestions/opinions wanted and sought.
