Re: Which cal?
I think Skip is trying to say the same thing that I've been trying to explain to people. The ol' 30-06 is a wonderful round, as are all of the 06's relatives. My hero (Grandpa) has killed literally hundreds of deer with the good and trusty 280 remington. Let's face it, these cartridges have been around for a long time. Everybody is familiar with these rounds. I think that people try and explore more power and better economics, just like everything else in the world. So in answer to your question SkipAI, go big, and quench your thirst for newness and power. The 300 WSM, 300 WBY, 300 Ultra, 7 Ultra, they all sound good to me.
