I am going boar shooting in Germany from high seats under the moon over new year which I am excited about.
The hosts have told me to bring my .243 and they have said many people shoot boar in that region with .243's?? Apparently it is legal if the bullet delivers more than 2000 Joules of energy at 100m which a 100gr bullet does from a .243 but I am not sure I feel very comfortable about it. Has anyone ever successfully shot a boar with anything under a .270?
Having read the posts on this forum it looks like .270 is the minimum anyone would suggest including DEFRA.
Be interested to see what anyone thought about this.
