  6. Mauser vs Sako

    Thanks for all the responses so far. The only thing that "worries" me about the Mauser is the pressed barrel which would make it harder to re barrel if I ever wanted to in the future? ESX

    Quick straw pole on 2 rifles and I'm considering in 30-06 Mauser M12 Impact vs Sako 85 S/S Which one would people go for and why? Thanks!
  8. 2 or 1

    I've heard the return to zero is good on the switch barrels. Cost is higher initially but does it even out if you add calibres?
  9. 2 or 1

    Have a dilemma. 2 slots to fill and torn between 2 separate rifles or a switch barrel option. Thoughts on pros/cons. Recommendations?
  10. Neck shots

    Had a fallow doe the other morning that was facing me. Body was obscured by long grass but head and entire neck was visible. I would have preferred a heart shot but I was confident in my ability and equipment. Deer dropped on the spot to a 6.5x55 BST at about 125 yards. Exit made a bit of a...

    They have caused a fair bit of damage to the trees and bushes!
  12. Fallow Bucks

    Looked out the window to see a couple of Fallow bucks squaring up to each other. They've put a rutting stand right in view of the kitchen window. Good show!

  15. A good month on the Roe Bucks down here in Devon!

    Some nice looking bucks there. Are roe well established around the Exeter area?
  16. Roe Buck in the shade

    Hopefully he makes a regular appearance. I'm pretty sure he's two years old as he looks like a deer that turned up last year with buttons on his head. Almost thought he was a doe until I had a good look.
  17. Roe Buck in the shade

    Hi All, There are not many roe around the part of East Sussex where I live but they appear to be getting a foothold. Plenty of Fallow to compete with them for food must be one reason why they are not more widely established. I am lucky enough to get the few that do manage to hold their own...

  20. New 308

    Thanks to all that have replied. Very helpful. One question I have re the Mauser M12 is that I understand the barrel is not replaceable. Does anyone know if this is an accurate statement. Inot the future I may want to have some semi custom work done and want to pick a platform where this will...
