Re: ballistics of 7mm-08 & 6.5x284
I think 7mm-08 is the best all-around cartridge for youth and women. I used dad's old .30-30 for years. My first bolt-action deer rifle was when I was 12. It was a Ruger 77 in 7mm-08. Still got that rifle, but for the last number of years, she spends 99.9% of her life in the safe. I have moved on to bigger and better over the last 15 years.
Anyway, I used a 7mm-08 when I was young, and it dropped numerous deer with no issues.
