Apologies for yet another newbie looking for advice on his first rifle but here are my requirements.
I'm about to apply for my FAC so not a calibre that will scare the FAO. I have DSC1 and some ground to shoot over but not much rifle experience. Bisley is on my doorstep so intend to join and get some target experience once I've got my ticket. Also have an experienced stalker willing to give me some pointers.
Anyhoo, looking for a 'one rifle' set up for £1000 which will do for roe, fallow and red. Occasional fox & bunnies.
Unlikely to get into reloading anytime soon so ammunition and parts that are easy to come by.
I was thinking £350 for rifle and £400 scope leaving £200 for moderator and bipod. If I can't get a complete second hand package what bits should I keep an eye out for
Suggestions for bullets to go with your calibre for the above quarry also appreciated
Look forward to your thoughts.
