    30.06 in France

    Dear All - I appeal to anyone who can share recent experience hunting in France. I understand that from Oct 13 .308 and 30-06 are now considered sporting calibre, and can be used in the same way as 7 x 64 for example. Has anyone out there tested this, or have any in-depth knowledge on what exactly has happened with the laws?

    plenty on here including the actual piece of legislation, written in french so can be printed and stuck between their noses and Gauloise's.

    Not only is it correct but the .30-06 is the runaway commercial success of the year in France! All the manufacturers of rifles and cartridges are falling over each other to flood France with the .30-06.

    Very many thanks to you all for the confirmation. Great tip Martin, I will get hold of "French David", and I'm therefore assuming that soon you'll even be able to buy 30-06 ammunition (if lucky and if unexpectedly required)...
