Re: what cal?

I will nominate the 284 WIN...as usual
Great balistics, respectable barrel life, no break required,wicked accurate.

Can shoot 162 Amaxes 2900- 3100 fps with little effort, good components.

Ticks the unusal box too I think.

My 2c

300WSMMAD

    for those rifles I would choose a 7mm, or a .277. my list would go .280 Rem (especially if you get a CDL), then .270 win and then maybe at the back of the pack a .264 WIN. I think that if I bought a CDL I would want it in a classic, cheap to shoot cartrige.

    280AI shells are a dime a dozen when you consider you can use 30-06, 270, and 25-05 brass and just run them thru a 280 rem die and reload 280 remington then fireform to 280AI. You get close to 7mm magnum ballistics without the belted magnum recoil.
