Welcome aboard.

300 Win Mag for boar and red deer. Good choice.

For 700-1000 yards/meters the rifle is better if it as bit heavier than a 'standard' sporting rifle. Greater stability.

I shoot that distance from a bipod. The A5 is a great stock.

Over here longer barrels, 28-30 inches are preferred for long range rifles. I'm not sure that this length is necessary but for your cartridge choice I would suggest no shorter than 26 inches. Longer if possible.

I would strongly consider any high ballistic coefficient bullet of 190 grains or larger. I wouldn't think that a bullet heavier than 220 grains would be necessary.

There is a very broad selection of 30 caliber bullets from which to choose.

Good luck with your efforts and good hunting.

can you have some suggestion for the scope and the réticule Much personal preference is applied to scope and reticle selection. The best of the best is usually a good choice. There are many European scopes that are of top quality. A 'tactical' type scope or one designed as nearly tactical would be a good choice.I feel an important consideration is to have the reticle and turrets calibrated in the same units. That is Mils/Mils or MOA/MOA.

Another personal preference is to "hold over" using the reticle or to turn the turrets for windage and elevation and hold spot on the desired point of impact.

I choose to turn the elevation turret for up and down and hold off for windage. However, I do turn the turret for windage if there appears to be sufficient time before the shot has to be made.

I would suggest MOA turrets and MOA reticle as MOA units give more definition (smaller, to me) than MILs.

I have both MIL reticle and 1/8 inch turrets on a scope and have had to switch from hold over to "clicking" turrets to get the "first shot" spot on. 1/8 inch clicks are too many to follow when changing several MOA.

I have a Nightforce NXS with the NPR-1 reticle. It is very pleasing for my use.

Another reticle which draws my attention is the IOR NP-8 reticle. If I had one of the IORs I would strongly consider hold over for elevation and clicking for windage.

(duck and woodpigeons) What is a wood pigeon? I'm afraid to assume it would be a pigeon that lives in the woods.

for the berger bullet its 30 cal 210 grains match hunting vld
for the scope the europeen scope have usually big reticule N° 4 it's the standart du to the hunting method early for the morning and late to the afternoon low visibility and the short shooting distance under 200 m

Re: Corsican

J'ai un ziess avec le réticule lourds. Il est très agréable mais un peu lourd pour de très longs plans à petites créatures.

Le canon de 26 pouces vous sera bien utile. Comme la balle que vous avez sélectionné.

(BTW comment va mon français. (Traducteur de Google)


[I have a Ziess with the heavy reticle. It is very nice but just a little heavy for very long shots at small critters. The 26 inch barrel will serve you well. As will the bullet you have selected. BTW how's my french. (Google translator)]
