Here in the UK wild boar hunting is a relatively new sport and I am in the process of getting permission to get a new caliber rifle for wild boar.
I am considering a .308 for the job (Is that a good option?) and was hoping you guys could advise me.
I was hoping to get a rifle that shoots 200grain bullets accurately up to 1000yds as well as I am also hoping to do some long range shooting in New Zealand next year after deer and goat.
I am lead to believe that the heavier bullets work better at long range as they cut through the wind better.
Is this right or wrong ???
I will be shooting long range with the rifle climbing mountains after goats etc in New Zealand and going on driven wild boar shoots in Poland.
Your advice as ever means a lot to me.
So, please advise on the following;
- What rifle/rifles? (One preferably)
- What caliber?
- What weight bullet?
- What barrel twist rate?
Fire away guys, what do you think???
