I do have a sporter Swede 6.5X55, but I don't know if it would work for this kind of hunting. It has a 6x20x50 Sportsmans Guidegear scope.
Thanx for the help.
The gun you have will more than do the job on anything deer size and smaller. If you don't plan on keeping the pelts, run what you got. I plan on hunting Coyotes with a .308 because right now its the only gun I own.
.308 Howa 1500, varmint supreme. 24" .820 barrel, Roedale precision brake.
.223 Howa 1500, varmint supreme, 24" .820 barrel.
RRA 20" predator pursuite, Magpul PRS, ALG trigger,
