In what state?

Different states have different requirements & in some states deer are classed as pests so there are minimum requirements to ensure you meet the hunters code of ethics.

Mia, you need to take the time to be a bit more specific when asking questions to obtain the best answers!

I'm happy to say I'm a huge Fanboy of the 300 Blkout but on Sambar ??? Really would it do it, more than likely at point Blank would I try it No Way.. Smaller Fallow yes Sir but one of those Mother not on your life Mate. Stick to a 300WM or a 30-06 much better suited in my opinion

What do sambar and cockroaches have in common?

They are the only creatures that can and will survive a Nuclear Holocaust

ok 300BLK of the list ,as 30/06 is about 23/25 ft pounds at the shoulder ,might have to look at a 308 or 7mmo8 ,or get rid of synthetic stock ,I have at the moment.............

What about a limbsaver recoil pad and a decent muzzle break? I hate shooting next to them, but if it means being abke to shoot then you should look into one.

What about the Swede in Tikka or Sako? Light recoil and should still do the job on Sambar using the 160 grn Woodleigh's with out to much trouble. May be a straight wall case like ohhh45-70 loaded back a bit or 375wim pretty sure the Sambar won't mind.

Isn't the 7 08 meant to be milder than a 308 or 270 and legal an all ?

6.5x55 is no good. Minimum in vic is i believe 6.8mm/.270.

That is correct. I had one that was pretty damn accurate too.
