    Scope & Reflex sight

    I'm quite interested in the scope and red dot option but I think a red dot and low powered variable are pointless. If you think you will need to shoot quickly, walk around with the scope on lowest zoom. If you need more zoom, you almost certainly have time to wind the scope up. Where I think a...

    Favorite above .40 Revolver cartridge?

    Thought worth putting that in there as the S&W25 is usually chambered in 45 ACP I appreciate it is usually just 45 Colt ;)

    175gr 7mm bullets

    CF, I do like RWS and I lament the loss of Teilmantel in the 9,3x62. Rifle really liked it and did good (or bad, depending if your the pig) things to wild boar. I am looking for a bullet that does taper slowly. My Chamber is cut for modern pointy bullets so round nose is a problem unless loaded...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    @ufg8r93 Forgot to say, in your 1:12 twist barrel it might be worth trying the 60gr Nosler Partition. It's rather shorter and stubbier than the Sierra offerings and should work better in deer type game Bought some but never loaded them as the Sierras shot so well and I think until recent...

    Favorite above .40 Revolver cartridge?

    When I lived in Switzerland I had a S&W 25-5 in 45 "long" Colt that I loved. These days probably the 44 mag that I run through my lever action. H110 can give you some fairly hefty punch for hunting useage and a cast lead bullet with Unique gives a very soft plinking / practice load.

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    Yes sir, 1:9 A lot of the European stuff is going that way (Faster twists 1:7 / 8 / 9) as CIP (who are our equivalent of SAAMI) have their .223 Rem the same as NATO 5.56. The heavier bullets are interesting and some people are doing some really interesting things with 80gr+ bullets in 1:7"...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    Well, I shoot a fair few Muntjac every year which top out around 35-40lbs live weight for a big one. So I would guess approximate the T10 quite well. My rifle of choice is a CZ527 in .223 Rem shooting a 65gr Sierra SBT (Spire Point Boat Tail). Scrummy

    175gr 7mm bullets

    Thinking mainly for pigs and some of the larger fallow / reds we have but I found for our muntjac as well, a heavier bullet not going too fast is advantageous. My syndicate has muntjac, roe, fallow and red deer so body weights from 20lbs to a couple of hundred. In some ways a big, slow...

    Creating a 9.3x62 do it all

    I'll be interested to see what it will do actually. At 200 yds it's a 4" circle but if you hold for the centre of the shoulder on a decent sized antelope or deer (fallow, whitetail, red etc) is that implied 2 moa accuracy good enough? I'll be interested to find out.
