Thread: Weird Calibres?

  1. #1

    Question Weird Calibres?

    It looks like most here stalk with a selection of fairly "normal" hardware; 243, 270, 308 and the like. Whats the most unusual calibre anyone here actually uses to shoot deer in the UK? Does anyone actually use stuff like 244Rem, 300H&H Magnum, 303British, 7mm Jap etc?

    I used to use a savage 250-3000 (till my father sold it) it was his but a cracking round, even better it was an underlever.

    Sorry I cannot think of any weird calibres .................................. can think of some obscure cartridges though such as 9.3x57 Mauser, 8x56R Mannlicher and 6.5x53R Mannlicher. Doubtful that you will any on your local dealers shelves.

    A chum of mine has a scope on an old 303 lee Enfield that he uses for stalking

    don't have one, but I'd love to try a 6.5X68..I just know I could take that buck clean down from across the big mountain valley from 650yds, with no holdover! LOL...

    I have always fancied the Ackley Improved version of this Cartridge. One of Ackley`s most successfull conversions.The performance from this little Cartridge is excellent.
