    Re: seal rifle

    Condor, i shot a couple or 3 seals last year of the east cost of the UK. i used a 30-06. i'd say a 6.5-284. 30-06 300 WSM or WM , 270 WSM would do the trick, use heavey bullets and aim to definately kill, its easy to get tempted to blast away at these things out in the water where you have no chance of following up if you would one..
    regards Pete

    condor, the 6,5 is very accurate, but the 300 wsm is nalos accurate in a good rifle.; accuracy will depend on the rifle and tghe shooter. For this reason, you will usually shoot better a less recoiling cartridge, so the 6,5-284 makes good sense to me. That said, I have no experience with seals.......

    What kind of dear are you talking about ? roedeer (rodjur)

    Re: seal rifle

    Definitely a 6.5 case. There should be lots of supplies to feed either the 6.5X55 or 6.5-284 or 260. Best overal cal for what you want to do.

    The 6.5 is dominating 1000yd BR in North America so plenty accurate with the right rifle and load. Just load 139gr Lapua's, 142gr MK and have at it.

    7mm is also a great cal if you have ready supply of components. For this cal, I would look at the 280 as a min and 7WSM, 7RM as ideal. launch 162gr and heavier match bullets.
