Suggested Hunting Rifles and Calibers

Rifle Hunting in Serbia

Rifle hunting is by far the most popular method employed in Serbia. The question of which caliber is best and which rifle to bring on safari can be a topic of endless discussion. Experienced hunters and Professional Hunters alike will surely have their favorites and are more than willing to discuss their preferences. The right rifle will in many instances largely depend on the trophies you are interested in taking.

For the average hunter coming to Serbia to hunt for plains game, bring a rifle that you are completely familiar with and comfortable shooting. In other words, your favorite “white tail deer” rifle with the right bullets will within reason be adequate for most anything on the plains. As a guide, while lesser calibers will suffice on the smaller antelope, the .270 Winchester should be considered the minimum for most medium sized plains game species. With the proper premium grade bullets and good shot placement, the .270 is fully capable of taking many of the larger plains dwellers. In addition to the .270, the rifle calibers most often brought to Serbia by clients include (in no particular order): the various 7mm’s to include the 7mm Mag, 7mm Ultra Mag, and even the 7x57mm Mauser; the 30-06 Springfield is extremely popular and has long been a favorite of hunters around the globe. The 300 Win Mag is an excellent all around choice especially if your safari will take you to areas where long shots may be necessary. The above-mentioned calibers are merely examples and should in no way be construed as recommendations. BRING A RIFLE THAT YOU SHOOT WELL AND ARE THOROUGHLY FAMILIAR AND COMFORTABLE WITH !
