Hi all, I currently have a .243 but am just in the process of getting my variation through for a long range deer & close range boar calibre (having just joined a syndicate).
I had decided on a .308 over a 30-06, for no other reason than the ammo is easier to get here and I hear the recoil is less. I also have plenty of experience shooting .308 at Bisley but none with 30-06.
In my search for an answer on the .308 vs. 30-06 I noticed a lot of people saying the 7mm-08 was a good option as recoil was the same as a .243 but it was flatter than a 30-06 and as hard hitting as a .308... checking this on ballistics software appeared to be true, though frankly there's not a lot in the ballistics as they're all much-of-a-much as far as I can tell!
The 7mm-08 seems to me to be a good choice for the longer shots on Red's I need it for (please let me know if you don't think so), just wondered if anyone had shot a Boar with one and what the performance was like? I was reccomended as 7mm as a minimum for Boar...?
