Thread: Legal Cartridges

    Legal Cartridges

    Okay unless I've misread the 260 REM , 6.5x55 , 7x57 and 7mm-08 are legal for hunting in the UK , Ireland and France .
    Are the mentioned cartridges legal in Czech Republic , Spain , Germany and Italy ?

    Hi

    Heads-up that the 6.5x55 is not allowed in France as it's a military calibre from Scandinavia...

    Cheers

    Is 7x57mm not also an ex-military cartridge?

    Yes, and it's illegal for hunting in France, but the rimmed version, 7x57R, isn't and is reasonably popular in drllings and kipplaufs.

    I was under the impression that recently the French resended that as far as the 6.5x55 and 7x57 are concerned ?

    So if thats the case a Euro rifle would best be a 260 REM , 7mm08 or possibly a 6.5x57 .

    There is talk of it, but it could take years - they are French after all.

    There are a myriad of regs across Europe, and various levels of enforcement. If you want to travel and hunt across Europe, and plan to include France, I would bring a 7x64 and/or a 9.3x62. For the UK and Ireland, anything common between 243 and 30/06. If you are not going to France, a 30/06 will do the lot.

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

    Hmmmm makes me think a 260 REM or 7mm-08 for the wife and a 6.5-06 , 280 REM , 264 WIN MAG or 7mm REM MAG for myself !

    I kinda wanted a Stutzen as you guys call them , but none of the four I mentioned for myself would take kindly to a 20" pipe !
