Thread: shooting test Calibre

    shooting test Calibre

    Hi All,

    On the dsc1 shooting test do all rifle's have to be .243 and above or could you use one thats big enough for muntjac and cwd? everyone's thoughts would be most welcome

    .243 is the smallest rifle you can use for dsc1. Because dsc1 covers all six species of deer in the uk, you have to a rifle that covers all six. If your doing the highland shooting test you need 100gr bullets aswell. Good luck with dsc1 it's well worth the time an money!

    Dean. I suggest you consult your course provider or DMQ.

    I've just completed my DSC1 this weekend and used my 22/250 for the shooting test which is legal for munty and cwd in england and wales and of course roe in scotland. No probs at all, it just says "deer legal" not "all deer legal" but as said above just check with your course provider. shaun

    I used .222 with no issues raised over it limited legal deer use.

    .22 centre fire that is deer legal is acceptable as it is after, a deer legal calibre as stated above.
