    Either will do the job just fine. I guess it would come down to what's more available, and in that respect I think you'll find it easier to source a .38.

    Is it for stalking?

    .38 because it will be a far easier tool to source at the right price

    Thanks for feedback so fast! Have been offered both. But wanted consensus on what most are using!

    Thanks again

    1st of all make sure you can get the variation for a 38 before you try to find one.

    .38 ammunition is much easier to source with ammunition and components available in many gun shops and will generally have a heavier bullet weight than 9mm ammunition, though in general terms they are pretty much the same.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Without question 38 - soft lead wadcutter, much safer than 9mm, better extraction, easy and economical to reload, quieter too
