  1. Mauser 225 vs Tikka M65

    Hi folks, I am looking to soon buy my first hunting rifle. I found two used guns, a Mauser 225 and a Tikka M65, in nice condition for a reasonable price. Both guns seem very high quality, everything on them is wood and metal, and they both are great all-round calibers; the Mauser is 30-06 and...

  3. Sold: Beretta BRX1 30-06

    Had this rifle for four months, shoots well, just haven’t really gelled with it. Going back to 6.5 Easily shoots 1”, I’ve had clover leafs from it with federal. Fired around 150. Pretty much as new. The odd blemish from where it’s been in the field. Supplied in original box. With wildcat evo...
  4. Best Calibre for Deer with Copper Bullets

    I am researching a new calibre for my main deer rifle. I have a .303 SMLE which is great for woodland but I can’t make it accurate enough (for my personal standards), 6.5 CM which I bought and enjoyed using with 143gr ELD-X bullets. I am now shifting to non-toxic and finding the 6.5CM lacking...
  5. Barnes TSX/TTSX/LRX reloading, 30-06.

    Hi all, I’m finally getting round to working up a non lead load for UK stalking, all species, in 30-06. I’m currently using RL15, 178gr ELDX heads, which I’m really happy with and find hugely accurate with great stopping power and not very much meat damage. I have shot the federal trophy copper...
  6. 30-06 Rounds 125g vs 150g

    Thought i would throw this out there for friendly discussion. I have shot 125g Federal softpoints through my 30-06 hill rifle for the past year and they have been fine. I picked this round under advice from an estate where i go every year, they use it successfully (as have i). Unfortunately, as...
  7. 7mm-08 for Deer & Boar?

    Hi all, I currently have a .243 but am just in the process of getting my variation through for a long range deer & close range boar calibre (having just joined a syndicate). I had decided on a .308 over a 30-06, for no other reason than the ammo is easier to get here and I hear the recoil is...
  8. Fussy Calibres

    I reload for two calibres .243 and .30-06. I have had great success with the .30-06 loading two differentrounds and finding sub MOA groupings very quickly. The .243 however has been the opposite end of the spectrum. It has taken many more rounds and is still not shooting as tighter groups as...
