Re: smaller wildcat cals.

20BR would be a lot of fun and deadly to 4-500 yards for varmints or target.

Re: smaller wildcat cals.

Lots of good Ideas and I have another.

I realy like the 223 AI . for that kind of hunting .Regular 223 ammo can be fired in it, and it is
accurate while fire forming.

223 ammo is one of the cheapest calibers you can buy and you can get it in many different bullet
weights. Then when it comes time to re load the fire formed cases you can push the largest .224
bullets as fast as the 50 to 55 grain bullets in the standard 223.

With the same weight bullets as the 223, the AI version is 150 to 200 ft/sec faster with no real
difference is recoil.

It is deadly on coyotes and well capable to shoot 600+ yards accuratly.

Just another though.

Re: smaller wildcat cals.

If you want a great little truck gun go with an AR-15 m-4 16" barrel, great accuracy, plenty of ammo with a 20 rnd mag, plenty of cheap accurate ammo. What more could you ask for? If push comes to shove you have plenty of gun for Whitetail not sure about much else but hey then get a bigger gun.

Re: smaller wildcat cals.

I really like the .270/08AI, accurate, fun to shoot, not many around. gets .270 Winchester ballistics with about 20% less powder. A couple of other good ones would be the .250 Savage AI, the 6mm/250 AI, .244 AI or the .240 Cobra.

Re: smaller wildcat cals.

I really like the ideas of 220what weatherly rocket, 240 gibbs, 6.5 grendal, 6.5br, and 6-6.5x47. Now just to make a decision. Do all of these take SA or are any a LA?
