Re: Hey Guys Help the Newbie out!!!
+1 to britz and jwp. You may develop a flinch or bad shooting posture using the heavier calibers. Granted a muzzle break tames that, but the realization of the caliber may make you a little trigger shy. I started on a .308 win and still learning. I have graduated to a 300wsm to reach a little farther. G-hogs at 1100yrds is a little difficult with a .308. They fly in like artilery at that distance.
