I have been stalking for several years, but only just found the site. I use a 6.5 x 55 for most of my UK woodland stalking, with a 308 in reserve for the bigger stuff when I get up to Scotland. I'm in a syndicate in the borders (11,000 acres of forest, but only roe) and I shoot roe and fallow locally in Wiltshire with friends. I've also done some plains game stuff abroad, and a fair but of driven boar in Europe when I lived in the Netherlands for 10 years.
