When I was reading some of the interesting and exciting reports about hunting in the USA (Hells Canyon f. ex.) I asked myself why aren’t they using single shot break action rifles while hunting in the mountains in such tough and demanding terrain. In Europe, they are very popular while hunting large game in f. ex. in the Highlands of Scotland, the Alps, Fjell - regions in Norway etc. Most of the SSBA– rifles are made by high - tech standards and of extraordinary quality. They are known to be highly precise shooters with sub - MOA anyway. Producers of SSBAs are f. ex. Blaser (K 95), Krieghoff (Hubertus), Merkel (K3 + 4) and other well – known names. The best thing about them is their lightweight only 6 – 7lbs, their reduced OAL by fully maintained bbl and the possibility of dissembling them into 2 or 3 parts. Just put the parts into your backpack and have some more comfort instead of bearing an extra bulky scabbard. When reassembled they don’t need to be sighted in again, always the same POI. Calibres both rimmed and not rimmed from 222 – 338. Most popular are the 6,5 – 7 mm rounds due to low gun weight. The potent rounds from 7 RM - demand good muzzle brakes. BBl between 20,5’ – 25,5’. Hunters with good practice do not have any problems with fast reloading. Re – or unloading can be done noiseless which isn’t bad either. What are your opinions and comments due to this topic?
