Re: Choosing a long range caliber

Hunting something 1 mile away. I would have thought that something in the 40 - 50 cal. range would be the place to start, other than carrying it of course.

Re: Choosing a long range caliber

My vote would be to go with the 338 Edge from Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge. It has been one of the easiest rifles I have ever shot/loaded for. The money will be well worth it I promise! Going with the 338 Edge will be a cartridge that will grow with you as your skills improve and will certainly take game at a long way off with authority. Like another post said, it is addictive shooting long range and I feel this combo is tough to beat. I wish when I had started out in this long range game I had started off in this direction. It would have saved me lots of time and money in the long run.
