About fraction on a hare

It is widely believed that hares are not strong on a wound. Perhaps this is true for the autumn, not yet dressed in winter thick hare fur. But even not faded wounded animals can sometimes go a considerable distance. There are cases when a mortally wounded rook ran several tens of meters before falling. With a lighter wound, the chased hare stubbornly leaves and can completely get lost in the more often. Therefore, you should always peel the shot hare and look for drops of blood. But without a dog, the wounded animal is best left alone for a while, allowing him to calm down and lie down.

All of this comes down to the need recognized by most hunters for the need for a strong shot at a hare in order to save both himself and him from unnecessary torment. Despite the variety of rifles (12th or 16th caliber) of shells, the most suitable for rabbit hunting, according to some, are trunks with full chokes (among other requirements for a hunting rifle). The usual pay of the right trunk is considered suitable except for a close shot, but, like a chock, it also requires a specially selected shell. It is possible to soften the shot at close range in the presence of two chokes with scattering cartridges, with thick felt wads.

It is clear that such a love of Choku is not shared by all rabbits, who are accustomed to perfectly use the half-stem trunk. For these self-confident shooters, shooting at a distance of 15-25 m most recommended for a hare is possible only from a half-hole, or even from a cylinder, with loose cartridges. Shooting from a chock at a distance of more than 55 m, even with special shells with a heap fight, in most cases gives wounded animals and misses.

It is not necessary to go on a hare with a semiautomatic device, a multi-charger – it is unlikely that the animal will allow it to make more than two shots on its own. The presence of an assault rifle (as well as a double-barreled ejector) will only allow time to finish off the wounded animal on hunting trips.

A very wide range of numbers used on the rabbit fraction. Some people consider autumn whitewash to shoot the fifth number of the shot at a standard distance of 30-35 steps (about the same 15-20 m), even with a not very sharp shotgun. Some hunters with the same number managed to beat the whitish in winter fur. But many trust the Quartet, which strikes the whitewater even to a greater distance (for a closer shot, especially for the winter hare, they keep the “three” in the other barrel). Still others, preparing for firing at different distances, lay in the barrels a half-charge with a shot number 5 and a full charge with a shot number 3.

In contrast to lovers of small fractions, there are hunters who are more comfortable going out in the winter to the snow-white with cartridges equipped with shots No. 2 and even No. 1, justifying themselves by the poor penetration of its thick winter fur. However, a large fraction over a long distance often just hurts a hare, if only because of the small number of grains reaching it.

A rifle with a faithful and long-range battle is especially necessary for a brown man. The hunting season for this hare usually begins with the third number of fractions. In the winter, the little Rusak practically use a fraction from the “five” to “zero”, in accordance with individual experience. At the height of the season or towards its end, when the rookie becomes stronger on the wound, a sharp and heaped shot helps out, besides designed for a long distance. Some shooters solve this problem with long-range cartridges when increasing the number of fractions from No. 3 to No. 1, others – by putting a wad-hub in a cartridge with “zero”.

They attach great importance to the sleeve, which is necessarily polyethylene with a concentrator and coarse powder (not smaller than No. 2) sprinkled with starch. Numerous homemade ways to increase both the accuracy of the battle and the spread of shots – alloys of tips from experienced hunters, their own experience and skillful hands. But, especially at the beginning of his hunting career, it is probably best to adhere to an established rule: the finer the fraction, the more true the success.
