WRONG GUNS GUYS...be a hunter pls

why do you guys use rifles like 300RUM 338LM and so on. for normal deer at shortish ranges like 300-400-500 yards? you dont need to use that much gun powder. l always try and put a hole in the animal-but it looks like you dudes are trying to drill a hole in the mountanin aswell as the animal. and go to the pub and talk about it '' l shot a deer today from 350 yards and my bullet whent 2 meters in to the side of the mountain after exiting the deer. and the other guy sais- ohh whell thats nothing l shot a deer from 200 yards the bullet first whent through 5 pine trees then killing the animal and l found the bullet 10 feet inside the mountain. you wanna advice. use 30-06 308 7mm-08 and so on and for extender ranges for deer go with a 7mm rem mag or a 300 wm. you dont need bigger rounds. remember you shoot beter with less recoıl. and the 270 ofcourse. if you gonna kill big big game than ok 300rum is allright.

I thought I would carry this over from the other thread you responded to:

"Not to start any trouble, but caliber is an individual choice! You do you and maybe not worry about everyone else!"

A Yugo will get you to work and back every day. Do you drive something better? Why?

I shoot what I shoot because I am confident in my skills with it and I am confident in its ability to kill what I am shooting at.

I shoot my big stuff because I know it can kill as far as I can comfortably shoot. I know it will also kill at the shorter, 3-500 yard ranges that you mentioned.

Re: WRONG GUNS GUYS...be a hunter pls

well since this post is about me and CO Shooter I guess I will respond again as well. The answer is simple, it my gun, my tag and my choice. Is there something wrong with using a 338 lapua for deer antelope coyotes even prairie dogs?? I am a Long Range hunter but as any real long range hunter knows its doesnt always work out that way some times you see that Big buck at close range so your long range rifle is now a close range rifle... I dont see whats hard to understand about that. There is no wrong gun as long as its capable of doing the job.

From a .22 to a .50 BMG, a well placed shot will get the job done! The animal/or whatever will not know the difference what it was shot with! Dead is Dead!

Re: WRONG GUNS GUYS...be a hunter pls

You'll get some the "my gun is bigger than yours" stuff but on this site you'll have guys shooting and planning for deer at 1000+ yards but then run into them at 50 yards, we're using larger rifle for the ballistics to get things done at long range. Planning for your longest shot sometimes puts you into the position of shooting something small at close range with more horse power than is needed.

You'll also find guys packing for the largest game they will be shooting so then you ramp up for that as well, packing for long range elk then having a mule deer try to commit suicide 50 feet in front of you.

And last but not least a sweet shooting 338 LM is hard to leave at home!!!!
