This is an odd one.....
Spoke to our FLO t'other day about a new piece of land I am in the process of getting to shoot over. I told him that its about 440 acres, fairly flat, lots of drainage ditches, and swimming in CWD and Roe. Told him I wanted to use my 6.5 x 55 Mauser M03. Now he referred to his wall chart, which shows the dangerous travelling distance of various calibres (note - no mention of bullet weights) and ummd and ahhd,
"6.5....well its like a 243...... travels over 2.48 miles......not overly keen really"
I was frankly concerned. I mean its not like I'm going to drop in the round "mortarlike" is it?
Going on this logic I'd need land over 4000acres in size!!
I did mention high seats, etc, but he was not very appreciative.
Anyone else had this??
