Obviously you’ve never had a 7x57! Always the right cal when you need itIve got a 308 ,22-250 and now getting a 243...think if id had a 270 maybe my cabinet be a bit tidier !!!! Its nice having the right tool for the Job, but you never have the right cal when you need it !!!
Very interesting video @Bavarianbrit, had to get a colleague to translate and the message was loud and clear! I'd love to get my hands on that thesis, would be very interesting. If you know how to get it, please let me know. The message was very similar to that Carolina research paper on whitetails - placement is everything, everything else is secondary.Anyone who can do basic german, watch this at minute 11.55 for his comments
this dog nachsuchen worker Helmut Schulze is the one of best in germany does around 270 searches per year and he mentions on the video about thick pills (fat bullets) a uni thesis was done with 500 nachsuchen and the finding was that bullet size played a secondary role to bullet placement.
Totally agree, My Ruger #1 35 Whelen is my favourite rifle it’s a 30.06 with attitude love it ....35 Whelen. Fantastic round. Easy to make the cases if you can't buy them. The .35W will smack you in the face with the best of em!
A big range of projectiles if you are willing to drop the powder charge and go to a .357 pill (just for mucking around).
I've loaded 118gn .357 pills for a laugh and .358 225gn Sierra Soft Points for serious clout.
I don't think there is anything in Europe or Nth America it can't take down with certainty.
Hi Finnbear, don't know if he has moved on calibres, but he does have a Merkel Helix as well, the Sauer was custom built to his spec. If i can find the article that he wrote in one of the mags i'll put it on here.Franz has moved on calibre wise, as I understand it.
Both are very capable big game cartridges . I've owned and used a few myself . I had a Brno 602 in 8X68 for a number of years that was close to perfect for longer range shots on Elk . A very old friend talked me out of it and I've been looking for another ever since . I'm a great believer in 8mm cartridges , I would happily use an 8X57 for everything here , but the 68 is a far more versatile round ............ actually , I can't disagree with any of the above posts lol .300wm or a cartridge I was recently educated on....
Totally agree, same for the ammunition he promotes. The problem for people watching him, and basing their purchase choice on him, is EVERYTHING he uses works, when you can shoot as he does !I think Franz Albrecht Shoots the rifle and caliber that his sponsors give him. Is he not sponsored by Merkel and Aimpoint at the moment?
