Re: Caliber Selection Help
Well I will be moving to CO next spring. I am wanting a caliber that tends not to drift a lot in light wind. Of course I love to shot and will shot anything that walks, crawls, or flies. (In season of course) To start with I'll be shooting antelope, mulies, whitetails, prairie dogs and coyotes. ( a large hole in the pelt doesn't take away from the beauty of it in my eyes, it just adds character) As I learn more about Co hunting seasons and draw registrations. I'll move up to elk, bear, and possibly mountain lions. My wife has family that lives in the prairie country, the foot hills (front range), and in the Rockies.
I'd like a caliber that easy to reload, with plenty of load data at my finger tips. I'm new to reloading and don't want to drop a ton of money to find something that works. Just data for general idea, I understand that every gun shoots different. Got a specific cartridge that fits the bill? I want a cartridge that will put them down on the spot. I am partial to my body and I would like to keep all of it in tack.
