Hi, after having both caliber 243, 270, 308 I still really dont know which caliber to go for. I plan on buying a premium rifle lets say a Sauer. I dont want to buy the wrong caliber so this time I have to choose wisely.
I want an all-round caliber. Im from Denmark and my hunting is 90% Roe deers and 10% Red or fallow deers.
I have thought alot about getting a 6,5x55. In my opinion its pretty close to a 243w, but with the right bullet I can shoot red deer and fallow or wild boar in Sweden/Poland.
I will not buy the 243W bacause here in Denmark its illegal for anything bigger than roe. Thats why I think of 6,5x55 as its bulletwight can get fairly close to a 243W.
I know some of you will say Go buy a 308W 30-06 or 270w but in my honest opinion I think its too big when I said 90% of my hunting will be for roe.
What do you think? Is the 6,5x55 the caliber for my situation?
(sorry about wrong spelling im in a rush to go look at my weapons ;-) )
