    Im comfortable with my 243 for everything from Foxes to Roe Doe and Boar to Stags, its what you do with it that counts.

    I must admit though, my Estate rifle is a .270, this was purchased to comply with Night Authorisation shooting when it was a requirement.

    i do understand that the bigger calibres have more stopping power incase you drop it in the wrong place and people get comfort from this.

    i also understand that a Volvo is a safe car but I don't buy one just incase I crash.
    I have a Volvo XC90 and a Merkel Helix 270, sorted.

    I think a .243 bullet of any weight or construction might have some trouble getting through the brush on some of these shots when he moves away from the rides!



    Is that a Volvo in the last clip of the video?

    VW Amarok and Merkel Helix 9.3x62/.308 - not sure what that proves in the endowment stakes, other than a disregard for manufacturer's stated diesel emission figures and a preference for quality rifles.

    Then again, one could always forgo the firearms completely and revert to the tried and tested 'Sink & Car' method of wild boar hunting.



    Was it a Volvo?
