Thread: The Best

    The Best

    I have always wanted to throw this question into the ring and see what comes out.
    O.k you are going to stalk and shoot the six species of Deer in the U.K you are not going to shoot any Boar or Foxes etc only Deer and only in this country.
    You are only allowed to have one Rifle, one scope, one bullet weight and type (Spitzer etc) and a moderator is optional as well as the make of Rifle, scope etc etc.
    Well Guys and Gals whats it to be ????? This is going to be an interesting one.
    Best wishes Martin

    My old Sako Finnbear .270 (should never have sold it), Zeiss Diatal 6x42 (should never had sold it) & Federal Powershok 130 gn (should never have given them away). Didn't have a moderator then, as I was a bit of a traditionalist, but would probably go for a Jet-Z.

    .308, .270, Sako 75 or Tikka 595/695, 7x50 Zeiss DV or 2.5-10x50 Zeiss DV, either of these with a bit of fettling and I would happy as a pig in poo! Oh of course there is the 6.5x284, which I would most deffinatly have being in the mood, with a 4-16x50 S&B PMII or 6-24x56 Zeiss DV.

    Moderator...my own make/model of course!

    Already did this, my blue print for a deer rifle:

    Sako 75 action
    260rem Min spec chamber
    120gr SPBT bullets
    Stainless LW Barrel 20"
    McMillan stock
    Swarovski PF 8x50
    ASE Jet Z.

    Just about perfect UK/Irish deer rifle.

    The only thing you might argue is calibre, if I was to do it again, it might end up as a 7/08.
