    Hi from Alexj

    I live in Surrey, have been shooting for five or six years, shotguns mainly.
    The thing that started it all off, was a hunting trip with a friend in SA. Having had to borrow rifles up until now, I am just in the process of applying for my FAC.
    The person who I will be going out with, has quite a variety of species on his bits of land, including boar, so thinking 308 or 30-06? Any advice gratefully received.

    Welcome to the site...

    308 would be my choice
    Cheap brass
    Lots of reloading info
    Lots of 2nd hand guns for sale
    excellent round for the UK

    hi Alex and welcome. I've only recently joined too. My thoughts would be - you don't want to upset a boar, so 30-06 if yuo are lucky enough to get boar on ticket. Otheriwse, .308 super alrounder. Doubtless you will receive lots of other recommendations soon.

    The 308 will not let you down it can be a lot of gun if you want or a pea shooter you make your choice
    As I'm trying to say a good alrounder for all game just pick your load to suit.

    Thanks to all, for the feed back and advice, it does seem like 308 is the likely candidate.
