Thread: Which Rifle(S)?

    Which Rifle(S)?

    Gents your advice please?

    I have been asked to do a bit of culling on a farm that has munties, but the farmer also wants some hares shot. My ticket recently came back with .223 for the smaller species and i thought that i might try it instead of lugging round a rimfire and the stalking rifle.

    I normally shoot 50gr cts at around 3200 fps, I would imagine they would be a fine for head shooting the hares but a bit brutal for the munties. In my view i have two options, I can either work up a new load (bullet recommendations welcome) or buy something of the shelf (any recommendation ?). I thought of trying some 55gr sp privi, does anyone have any experience with them on deer in .223?

    Thanks in advance.

    go for 55gr ppu, works really well all round in most modern rifles, the price is right too.

    + one with paul on the ppu great round for the .223 provided your rifle likes them.
    I wish I was half the hunter my dog thinks I am
