Great pictures Curl!!!!

Glad the 300 worked out for you!

I have some excellent bear recipes if you need any!

Back to the actual topic... I have to agree with Curl. After hunting in Europe and meeting driven game hunters (en battue) most seem to prefer the smaller DR calibres the 7x65r and the 8mm to the 9.3x74r. The smaller calibres have less recoil so they feel they can get that second shot off sooner than with the 9.3. Also, many driven hunts can be after roe deer which are quite small so some feel that the "smaller" calibres are better for smaller game. Not sure I agree with that since I thinka big slow bullet will do less meat damage on a small deer than a small but very fast bullet, but to each their own.

So in short there is a large demand and use for smaller calibre double rifles.

In regards to action he should devote himself to hunting...
