    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?

    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..

    What ammunition is common over there? A good bolt action with open sights or a low power variable scope (1x4) would suffice if the cartridge has enough power. 1x would allow you to shoot with both eyes open on dangerous game while 4x would be good for the longer shots.

    I'm not even a hunter and the question frustrates me.

    1) What is the firearm needed for? Hunting? okay
    2) What game is being hunted? Big? Small? Fowl?
    3) What caliber is best for that game?
    4) What gun fits my budget/terrain/caliber?

    You're missing a lot of pieces here. And you're going out on Friday?

    bolt action chambered in 30-06 or .308 winchester excellent for everything up to the great bears. bird hunting is best reserved for shotguns. 12gauge shotgun is an allround good caliber for all bird species.

    If I recall those Eurasian boars are especially big and aggressive. I would base my decision on the boar hunt. Anything you choose for the boar will definitely be good enough for deer. I agree with some of these post you should make a decision based on what caliber ammunition that is available to you. However I would not go with anything under the 308 or equivalent.

    You cant go wrong with a 30-06 or a 308, the rem 700 or the winchester 70, a good 3x9x40 scope. both calibers are proven and offer a wide range of factory loads for any area in Texas. for big game

    For birds it's hard to beat a rem 870, although my personal shotgun it the Ithica 37 featherlight

    Would a round like 7.62x54r be more common over there?
