Good evening all,
I have recently completed my DSC1 and now have my DMQ certificate and badge. I am looking to buy a good rifle that will suitably do the job. My current thoughts are .308 calibre, and a HOWA 1500. I would be thinking between 500 and 600£ max ideally including a scope (nothing fancy scope wise as I can upgrade this later with relative ease.) likewise, not overly fussed on a moderator as feel their purpose/necessity is somewhat debatable, and that a pair of plugs can protect my hearing equally if not better. I would be keen to buy the rifle new if possible but advice on a good quality second hand rifle would also be useful.
As I say I am new to stalking but have a relatively good amount of rimfire experience on both rabbit and fox. Any advice/comments would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
