Tamoor, in punjab you can only have .22 rifle since bigger bore than .22 are PB.

Hunting BOARS with rifle on a new license is tricky,,, I suggest that u try wid a good handgun since u can get a license for that,,, if u can get a 7mm or 30/06,, best choice.

ok now i learnt, always keep your hunting rifle in the jeep and carry a .357 mag pistol or revolver on your hip to hunt a boar and go as close distance of about 50m and take down the boar :lol:

I have a friend who has shot several boar with his S&W 44 magnum, but hunting boars on foot with a hand gun is not a job for novices or people with skittish moves, if you panic, the boar may well turn the table on you. Stick to rifle and shotgun, till you know the nature of the beast inside out, and then move on to handguns.

I remember that but your anger on the host that day might have killed all of them. I have used 38 special with good result on boars.

go for a 3006 it is a time tested calibre with excellent ballistics other wise go for a .308 winchester

Turumti

30-06 and 308 in blot action are as common as hen's teeth now.

Wajahat
29-07-2009, 02:34 AM
i would recommend a 7mm too because the ammo is easily available in karachi and you can haggle around with the price too, plus i have seen some good local bolt action 7mm rifles in karachi's markets going around 30 k to 35 and some of these had scopes mounted on them, so yeah i mean a realiable weapon, especially a hunting weapon for that much would be nothing less then a treat

Turumti

7mm is good enough for most game in Pakistan barring perhaps Marco Polo's sheep ad Markhor. That is not to say you cant shoot them with one, but rather you might be handicapped in terms of range with a regular 7x57. For shooting within 250 yards, the 7mm is a great gun. Place your bullets right, and you wont need another rifle.

Turumti

30-06 and 308 these days are very rare an very expensive. Winchester Model 70 featherweight is upward of 2 lacs, while 308 is about 50k more.

Bro as you know I'm from Peshawar therefore I won't be coming there myself. I am asking this for price
comparison and will ask someone to get it for me from KHI, if there's much difference between the Pesh
n KHI markets.

sirs any info on 308 Win

Mustanir brother, I also have been looking for 308 bolt action but in vain. In pakistan rifles chambered in 308 are rare & difficult to find. To my opinion this caliber is best for Pakistan as it the only rifle you can get 7.62 bullet cheaper than any other long range.
keep on searching my friend if you found one you will be a lucky person and a happy rifle shooter.

7mm magnum bolt action hunting rifle. I suggest it to you as we are living in Pakistan and semi automatic 8mm rifles are banned, so this is your best choice. Another best rifles are M1 and BRNO. These are best for larg boar hunting.
