Sorry to throw up another calibre thread but just after a quick bit of advice please.
I have the opportunity after speaking with the licensing manager to put in for a one for one variation for a larger caliber rifle, for the future hunting of the larger deer species. I can't see me shooting boar and Africa is a very distant dream!! I currently have 30-06 plus mod on ticket but am allowed to change if I wish.
I recently got a Brno ZKK 601 in .243 with a set trigger and 1st impressions are pretty good. I have spotted the same type of rifle for sale for reasonable money in .308 in mint condition and is already screwcut. Just wondering if this would be a good rifle for me?
From what I can gather there's slightly less recoil with .308, the rifles seem to be cheaper all round (which is a big factor) and without looking I guess ammo and reloading would be the same?
Also I already have a 30 cal T8 mod which I believe can be used on both the .243 and .308, thus saving some sheckles rather than having two mods for now?
Any thoughts please as my cert is in now and I need to confirm the calibre asap?
