I know this has been asked many times before but i think my question differs a little from those already asked.
I need to carry out some pest control on an area of new planted broadleaf forest, but with only 12g and .243 i need a new rimfire.
At present i have .22lr on my FAC and with the cheap, very available and subsonic ammo, reckon this is my best cal. But some of the damage to the trees is clearly hare not just rabbit so maybe i need a .17hmr (or mach2) as well.
So here is the question, do you think i should buy a cheap (prob s/h) CZ 452 and in future if i need the longer range for the hares than buy a second rimfire in .17?
Though i say a CZ .22lr, what are your thoughts on the Browning T-bolt? I have browning shotguns and A-bolt in .243 so quite like the Browning brand...
Or buy the sako quad with a .22lr barrel and when i get .17hmr on FAC just get the second barrel? Does the sako really give you a decent multi-purpose rifle or is it like the multi-tool that gives a crap knife, crap pliers, crap screwdriver etc etc....
Cheers for any comments
