Re: Best caliber for long range in a short action.
For what, targets, hunting, what animals, etc. I like the 243 AI on a short action. For targets and deer/antelope size animals It is awesome. Extreme accuracy, long barrel life, ability to shoot 243 winchester in it. It is one of the absolute best 1000 yard cartridges ever in competition. Many others though would be good. The 284 was designed for the short action but wildcat rounds off it with long vld bullets are to long for it.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
