My first inclination, as you could probably guess, would be the 7mm Allen Magnum but thatís a little more than you need, and if I remember right, you initially said the 3 smaller brothers of the 7mm AM were designed for long range deer, antelope etc.
Any of the 3 would do the job quite well, but if it was a choice, for me, between the first 3 AMís, Iíd pick the 270 Allen Magnum. I know the others would easily do the job, but you went a long time waiting for the permit and if you really have to reach out and touch one under less than favorable conditions, my vote would go for the 270 AM.
But, feel free to use the 7mm Allen Magnum. That would be great with me. Man, what a hard choice. Just remember, everything you read or hear will only be people's opinions and the only one that matters is yours. I won't be surprised no matter what round you choose. Choose what you will and it will work out great. Just be sure to let us know all about it like always.
As far as the bullet goes, I won't even comment because I know what you'll be using!!!!
O.K. now that Iíve voiced my opinion, Iíll get my popcorn and cold drink and sit back and see what the troops have to say. Might be interesting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
