I always use a moderator when stalking, and re-zeroing is a nuisance. Is it necessary, and is a .308 suitable for boar?

WILD BOAR SHOOTING
Graham Downing
Sound moderators are prohibited across much of Europe, and you will have no option but to remove the moderator before you travel, preferably fitting a threaded ring to the muzzle of your barrel to protect the threads from abrasion.

You will have to re-zero, as the point of impact without your moderator will be different.

Try to do so before you leave so that you do not have to attempt to re-zero on site, maybe with insufficient ammunition and in unfamiliar surroundings.

You can, if necessary, fire a test round when you arrive to check that all is well before you start to hunt.

Your .308 will be perfectly adequate for wild boar when used with a bullet of around 150-gr, though you will probably find some of the locals will be using larger calibres or medium-calibre Magnum rifles.
