    Most of the offered GKï½´s here (Austria) are in 7x64. This was the common cartridge here up to the 80 of the last century. You can get a GK
    from 800 Euros up, depending on condition and optic.

    It is reassuring to know that the cartridge, the 7x64mm, is alive and well in Europe.

    It seems to have a small, but strong, following in Aus, a few in N.Z and who knows how many in the U.S.

    Hi fellas.

    As an up-date to this thread here are a selection of boars I recently took in Northern Australia with my 7x64.

    Load used was the Sellior & Bellot 140gn factory loads which proved adequate so long as I didn't target the fighting shield on the shoulder and kept my shots behind the front leg.

    Rifle in the pics is my Doumolin FN.

    Cheers,

    Paul.
