I received interesting phone call with the firearms dept on Friday!
I had put in a request for an increase on my ammo allowance, and a request to add rifled slugs onto my ticket. (Planning on shooting some wild boar next year).
I was advised that they would allow me the slugs, but not for use in the UK.
The very nice man then said, if you send us proof of a booking for wild boar, we can let you have a suitable calibre added to your certificate, min cal .270 upto and including .338 (happy days).
This will also be conditioned for deer in the UK.
After some thought I have narrowed it down to the 7mm rem mag and the .300 win mag.
Just wondered what you guys who shoot boar think of calibres I have shortlisted.
It will have to be a cheapish bolt action for me, no fancy double or straight pulls, as I dont have that sort of money spare.
