first time hunting with a center fire rifle this year.... Grew up hunting whitetail deer in Ohio and could only use shotgun and slug or muzzle loader... Hunting Roe and Boar now with a mauser 98 30.06. Asked at the local gun shop and was sold PPU 170 gr GROM as the best 1 round for all. Killed 1 buck with a neck shot that dropped it in it's tracks. Running low so called to get another box and the guy is sold out with none in sight.... Can either drive all over the country, order and pay twice the price, or find another choice.
My only option for a zero range (range of any kind as far as that goes) is 35 meters...
So, the big ???
what 1 off the shelf round (brand, weight, and type bullet) will handle both roe and boar with a quick kill and minimum meat loss. And shoot flat enough to be able to zero at 35 meters and still handle up to 200 meters without a lot of compensation?
Any tips appreciated.
