I'm led to believe that my license will be returned shortly with a .243 allowance on it for foxes (to be changed to deer as soon as DSC1 completed, and the main quarry will be roe and some fallow). I have gone for .243 because that's what I've used to shoot my first few deer in the highlands.
I am not keen to go for a new shiny gun spending a fortune, i expect to be out and about only a dozen times a year, but would be happy with something nice and old school. Got my eye on a couple of guns, one is a Parker Hale 1200 in good nick for £300, not screw cut and without scope. The other is a STeyr Manliccher Model L with a 4-10x45 Pecar scope, not screwcut for £500. My local gunshop also has a Manliccher (not sure which model) but looks in reasonable nick for £450.
Am I looking in the right direction, or should I be sniffing around other guns?
Thanks for your help.
