they got deer in turkey??

i take several guns when i go to texas to hunt.

anyway for years i used a winchester model 70 in 458 winmag using 350grn hornady round nose soft point traveling around 1900-2000fps. this year i am taking my new .458socom and ruger 44 mag carbine. i also bring my remington 700 xcr in 308win. if i hunt an area where shots past 100 yards become necessary.

i also pack along my colt sp1 in .223 rem. with colt 4x scope in case i get an oppurtunity to moose hunt. and yes it does have a bayonet.

Unless I missed it somewhere, you may want to tell us what you are hunting?

Taliban and al-qeda can usually be taken out with a good .50 bmg !!!

What are you hunting?where are you hunting?what is the terrain?How long of shots are you making?There are hundreds of rifle/caliber combinations depending on all of these factors.

12ga Shotgun. In flight, or terrestrial, it can take most game.

i dont doubt you got em im just surprised they live there. :) but a remington 700 in 308 or 30-06 is great for deer sized critters.

I would say a .308 bolt action is what you need for deer. I would advise belting out some cash for an sks or something semi auto for wild boar since they are so aggressive and very likely to charge if wounded... That or find a nice big tree to climb before you start taking shots..

i want to spend my money at 1 rifle so not 1 rifle for boars and 1 rifle for deers
