Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

Any reason to show off your gun you jump on it huh ??
I don't blame you if I had that rig I'd carry it around and shot it off like a childs photo !! Sweeeettt

I wuld think that any gun that'll have at least 500lbs KE at 1000yds would work as long as you any hit that far , I would think that about any of your 300Mags and some big 7mm's would work good.

Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

Bill,I agree with Wyo on the 300wsm.But do yourself a favor and save 2500 dollars or so and just buy a factory Win M70 Coyote 300wsm.IMHO that Tac rig is a waste of money.When the same accuracy can be had with a factory rig...

JD,

Yup, I like her pretty ,much guess that's obvious.. the caliber is the main point but the rifle is the underlying obsession!

as a general rule I like 800 ft lbs for deer!

Boyd,

Nice.... [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Best Deer Caliber out to 1K

Sorry Ric,did'nt mean to offend you.But why do you keep trying to push Your Tac setup the way you do....The man is going on a elk hunt.And I would not want to carry a 14 or 15 pound Tac gun when a 8 or 9 pound factory or semi custom gun would be more than capable of doing the job????
