    My name is Christian, I'm a Dane living in London. I've been stalking since I got my license in DK when I was 16. Here I've got DSCL1 and I'll hopefully do the DSCL2 this year.

    I primarily shoot at home in Denmark and here in the UK. When time and money permits, I like to travel abroad to hunt with rifle.

    At the moment, I use the following calibers:

    .223 Rem - just completing the paperwork. Meant for varminting, McQueen and deer as the law permits in the UK.

    6.5x55 - used for most of the deer stalking I do in the UK.

    .308 Win - the gun I have is purely for F-class shooting (savage F/TR), but I'm getting rid of it as I don't have the time for discipline. I'll probably have the .308 Win taken off my ticket when I've sold the gun, as I don't have much use for this caliber with a 6.5x55 as my main rifle.

    .300 Win Mag - bought it for hunting abroad, but also use it for red deer here in the UK.

    .416 Rigby - bought it for buffalo, but have also used it for plains game.

    Where am I now - philosophy wise?

    Well, I've recently read Jeff Cooper's "art of the rifle". I like the concept of practical shooting - mastering field shooting positions and delivering fast and sufficiently accurate shots at game from 15-300 meters.

    That's what I'm focusing on now, instead of trying to drill bug-holes from the bench / prone (well, I'll probably still do that, but you know what I mean).

    Welcome to the site. I've found 6,5x55 effective on all the deer we have in UK. Simon.
