which calibre do you most enjoy shooting?

Recommended Posts

All of them. You learn something about shooting with very different rifle or calibre experienced, whether it's technique, ballistics, or adapting different stock designs to customise fit and weld.

470 Nitro Express :D

 

The 12" flame ....

....cooks the game.

 

Both barrels ,of course,and that's £30+,Perhaps an acquired taste,but " I get no kick from champagne...."

6.5 creedmoor makes life easy,

But my 17 Hornet challenges me in wind & especially with NV at night.

6.5x47 for the accuracy and 7mm Rem Mag for its ability to bowl big red things over

Really enjoy shooting my 257 Roberts. A rifle built for me in a cartridge I like. Hits well on deer, is accurate and can watch the bug holes appear on a shoot-n-c!

6.5 Creedmoor for me. After a decade of .308 it's a great little upgrade for my regular 1000yd+ shoots.

17 Hornet at distant targets very pleasing to see such a small bullet results at 400yds .

.5 there just isn't a bigger smile. Closely followed by .416 barrett.

I love .308, enough power to feel like a real gun but comfortable enough to shoot all day.

I like my 6.5x47, accurate, couple of 22rf's which work just fine and a 7.5x55 Swiss which shows what an old military rifle can be like.

 

But for just straight fun with an all round grins from everyone who's shot mine it is hard to beat any BPCR, not just in shooting the buggers but in all stages, from reloading to firing and getting them to work. So 45-2.1, 40-65, 45-90 etc.

Enjoyed shooting my US mate's BPCR for the novelty value (unlike the light .300Wby..) but at home it's 6.5x47 and 6BR for sheer accuracy, and the .280AI for tipping bambis over.

A very under rated caliber that never seemed to catch on. Not even that much in the usa....
