Thread: What calibre do you use for Sika?

  1. #1

    What calibre do you use for Sika?

    As a result of the thread on the use of the .243 that is currently running, a question was posed as to whether many people use the .243 on Sika. I do myself. However out of interest, I'd like to ask people what calibre they use on Sika?

    260rem, 120gr NBT. Very effective. I went with the 260 specifically because I was not convinced by the 243 on Sika. My stalking buddy used a 243 on Sika for 4-5 years, with very mixed results in my opinion. He went the whole hog over to 30/06 last year. The 243 has not been out of the safe since.

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

    I think the .270 is the best all round calibre as said before I have personally witnessed regularly 300yd shots while lamping into all species with straight drops everytime .

    .308 with 150 or 165 gnr. Or 6.5x55 140 grn sst. They still run though, unless hit in the head.
