If you could have just 1 Deer Calibre

6.5x55 with 140gr SSTs will knock over anything that the UK has to offer...

I only have a 3 gun cabinet, and there's a 12b in there as well (scoped rifle, so they have to sit sideways), so I had to choose a "one for everything"


Note to self:
Buy and install 5 gun deep cabinet next time The Bride's away with the kids for a night before this lot take the p*ss for only having one rifle - oh, but what else to buy???

Hi
My .300WM does just about anything here, Europe, most of the African Plains Game (most people have access to) and just about anything else in North America.

Loaded at the lower end it is not 'onerous'......

Cheers, L

Impossible to choose............

So far I'm at 300wsm, 257 Weatherby Mag, 375H&H, and I've convinced myself I need a 6.5x47lapua which I have a slot for and a Kipplauf in either 7x57 or 7x65R.

I do find myself strangely drawn to Magnum cals.....:drool:

I would not be too fussed which deer legal calibre I had to use, so long as it wasn’t a 6.5X55 :stir: anything but one of them. 243,308,270, 25-06, 6.5-06, 7mm anything, 30-06 none of them would stop me getting deer.

Are you afraid of wearing a pink shirt as well? Not sure what you've got against the 6.5... Not Man enough for you? Unlikely as you have the .243 on your list

Each to their own i guess
