I have not been stalking a great amount of time only about a year.
Done my course and put in for .22 .223 and 25-06 and 30-06 all with expanding ammo.
The 30-06 was declined at the time but as I have ended up stalking every or every other weekend for last 8 months, as I found myself very fortunate, my mentor being very helpful and friendly with the use of land, I am very blessed.
I recently requested verbally with firearms for expanding for 30-06 as I wish to buy a 202 sauer. Reasons for reds in Scotland. This has been declined until proof can be given i.e. booking confirmation.
My predicament is a trip to Scotland, price of a rifle which I do want the sauer do not why I should compromise and a good scope is a little expensive in a short amount of time.
If I book the trip I would have to find funds, for a rifle and scope, there is no point in buying a rifle until I got expanding ammo, all seems a little harsh as I know others at our club that have expanding for many different calibers that they hardly ever use, if ever.
Feeling a little hard done by, any comments would be grateful.
