I shoot an R8 6.5 X 55 which I am very happy with, but I'm looking to put in a variation and get restrictions changed on my certificate.
I'm also working towards deer management opportunities with conservation bodies, who have mostly adopted the FC lease requirements. DSC2, EFAW+F and use of factory non-toxic ammunition. I'd imagine this will be largely Muntjac and the odd fallow, woodland stalking.
Is there a calibre that jumps out as best choice in this situation in terms of cost, performance and obtainability? .243" or .308"?
Or should I just be prepared for a good cry whatever I feed it?
I'd appreciate any relevant advice. Thanks in advance.
