Thread: Which two rifles

    Which two rifles

    Okay folks, it's time for one of those what do you reckon questions The "If you could only have rifle, what would it be?" question seems to have been debated a fair bit over the years. So I was wondering, about this: If you could only have two rifles, what would they be?

    Let's add some parameters just to keep things sane: Both have to be deer legal calibers and quarry goes from foxes to red stags & wild boar.

    I'll start the ball rolling: from my limited experience, I'd go for 6.5x55 and .30-06.

    Assuming you mean for UK stalking only...

    I'd take a .243 for Roe stalking, Fox, CWD, Muntjac
    I'd take a .308 for Reds, Sika, Boar and target shooting

    there's no room for a .22LR for bunnies, so I'd have to knock them down with the .243

    260rem and 30/06.

    Not allowed to shoot foxes here with a deer cal, so I have a 22/250 also.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
