    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    I would include 7.62x39 with the calibre above. A very practical and cheap round worth considering for bush hunting. 308 better on the tops or for longer shots though.

    I have 7.62x39 in wood but they should also be available in synthetic. Was there a reason you want synthetic over wood? I also have the 223 in wood as well. All brand new and still in the box....just in case you decide not to get synthetic. I am out of all the other calibres now. (308 etc)

    Nothing wrong with synthetic, I just dont have any in stock in the rifles.

    PM me if interested, ignore me if you want synthetic for a reason.

    I have one in 7.62 Russian (the PKM caliber, 7.62x54R).
    Great rimmed caliber for break action rifles.

    Sorry. Had them and sold out. I have only 223 or the 7.62x39 left. As far as i can tell, no weight difference, or not much if there is. And wood does not make that scratchy sound of gorse on plastic in the scrub....

    Reloaders had a 308 as the the big GC. GC has apparently got them in 270 and 308 at $499 each so a bit dearer than us.......Reloaders Supplies apparently has the 308 in stock at $400....
