Re: Help! Urgently Need Caliber Advice!

I'm going to go in another direction. 6.5x47 Lapua or the 6.5x284. Another interesting cartridge would be the .284 Winchester using RL17. You can push the 180 Berger to 2900 to 2950 fps or 162 A-max over 3000fps. That would be plenty to kill anything you are going after.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. [14] But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
