WhatHitEm, welcome to the forum- what kind of stuff are you hunting in Ireland?  Your post sums it up well, it's important to do the research and handle some different options to see what performs best and fits you best in the price range you're working in.
Thanks for the welcome, Madgomer.
Emerald Isle's mountains and the lakes are the best places to hunt here.
I mostly get to hunt down the sika deer or the fallow deer. You can sometimes come across feral sheep too.

I once found a dead fawn about 50 yds behind the house. I suspect it got hit by a car, crawled off and died. It hadn't been touched at all. I dragged it odf even farther to the back of my property and eventually the coyotes found it.

Yep, tough on the wild critters and the domestic ones too.  Spoke with a couple farmers last weekend that are having issues with calves due to the cold wet weather that keeps hanging on this spring.

Yes, I agree that the 6.5 PRC does not have the punch that a 338 LM or a 50 cal does...would like to hear Dutch's thoughts as well.....the first PRC on the market was the 30 Caliber and the 6.5 show up late last year and now the 300 PRC is being marketed....

It is base on the 375 Ruger case (.532 diameter case) neck down and shorten a bit for Short Action (not really short action). I know that a Rem Short Action Picatinny rail mounted on the CA just fine.....I did order a box of the 143 gn ELD-X bullet and some extra brass, just to see what this thing will do at the range, I do this for almost all my AR style rifles and the 6.5 CM as box only and the rest empty and new brass for reloading......

Have my work cut out for me this week and when I finally get to go to the range.....

the cold wet spring we are having is going to be very hard on the fawns. I read that as little as 1" of rain can kill a lot of fawns. we had 1" last week and over an inch both days this weekend. plus, 30-40's depending where you are. poor things will freeze in this weather

Had my honey-do this morning and my time was limited in the gun room today...I would say that one or two more days at the latest and I will be back in the game and will start talking to my shooting buddy, Billy and see when he might be interested in heading to the range.....

Have been getting the new to me Savage-Shilen 260 and the brand new Christensen Arms in 6.5 PRC files on the computer and getting the hard folders ready today, and now waiting for the Scope and Equipment in......Have been looking for my early 80's Tasco bore-sighter arbor box with all the arbors in them, have yet to find them but will order one tonight as a replacement - only have two more boxes to go before completely moved in......

Congrats on a Whopper of a spring season!  But I don't see a stick in the picture - I thought Robert taught you his style of hunting while you were down there
