Hello nik and welcome to the site, you should find plenty of help on here. Without wanting to start a friendly banter battle, what calibre rifle are you after :D :D

Welcome to the site and when you get chance spend some time going through the posts on here there is loads of good advice and help.
In Oct last year I posted “.270 love them or hate them” and you are right it got opinions’ and views flowing.
Look forward to reading you posts and let us know what you decide!

Welcome to the forum Nik. There was a (supposedly credible) report a few years ago of a Red stag on the beach at Aberystwyth, so keep your eyes open mate - you never know what might turn up. :)

Welcome Niko, despite the argueing about which calibre does what, above all else make sure your rifle suits and fits you and feels right, thats the best advice I can give you.

It really dosnt matter if its a 270, 308 6.5x55 or 243 you decide apon, they all do the same job as long as the bullet is in the right place ;)

Best of luck, and once again welcome to the site.
