Right chaps, after much searching I managed to find myself a brand new r93 with the last available new 25-06 barrel in the country ( or so I was told anyway). Before I got the blaser I did have a sako in the same calibre for a short while before that .243... Since I've had the 25-06 I've noticed there seems to be a bit more meat damage and a butcher friend also commented on one roe o took to him for sausages. Now I'm not talking messed up shot placement here, I thought it may be down to using ballistic tips ( tried three different types of ammo between the two rifles, finding one that suits not because of any carcass damage) but I mentioned to another friend that i was going to try soft points ad he said it was because of the calibre not the ammo?
so my question is what would be the best calibre to cover all species in the uk and boar abroad that is less likely to cause to much damage?
