    If you could have just 1 Deer Calibre

    As above, if you could have just one calibre to shoot deer with in the Uk only.

    What would it be?

    6.5 x55 IMO The perfect deer calibre bar none.

    .270 do for any species anywhere in uk, flat shooting, wide range of bullet types and weights available, many available weapons at reasonable prices, nice to shoot with a moderator, used in foreign parts to good effect by other members. Plenty of gun for any task.

    Having shot with many calibres over a 48 year period
    my choice would be the venerable .30-06 as bullet choice is huge and availability everywhere.
    If you want a short action go for the .308 , again , ammo and ingredients easily obtained.
    The 6.5X55 is OK , I have shot Roe and Beaver with it in Sweden .

    one gun

    It has to be 6.5x55 if I had to do it all over again.

    Should have added that since 1993 my main stalking rifle has been a .270 as at that time the ceiling was lifted to .270 in the Irish Republic from .22cfs which we had used or endured since 1972 .
    I sold the .30-06 to fund the exchange. There is nothing matter with the .270 either as it is only a necked-down .30-06 in the first place but easy availability of .30 calibre ingredients is a bonus.

    It would have to be 30-06 for me!

    Very hard hitting, super accurate and a range ammunition to cover every occasion.
