Re: master list of all around cartridge list

for purposes of truly concise lists, lets just say that 22's go without saying. maybe should have made that clear, of course for squirrels and rabbits that people intend to actually have meat left on yea, a 22 or 17 would be the bet choice, but for all game for which one wants to use center fire, try and pick 5 or fewer cartridges, i'm liking the lists im getting. the second guy to post basically put the log action counter parts to my short action contributions. loving the lists guys keep em comin!!

Re: master list of all around cartridge list

Since you're trying to be concise I presume when you say 17 and 22 you don't mean a 17 Remington or 22-250. As short range either of those will turn a squirrel or rabbit into red slime.

Even saying rimfire isn't sufficient.

17 Aguila
17 HM2
17 HMR

22 Short
22 LR
22 Magnum

Re: master list of all around cartridge list

I will leave out the .22 rimfire and the .17 Hmr but for centerfire for what I do here is what I have come to trust over the years.

.220 Swift
.260 Rem
.280 Rem
.338 Ultra
And when the ranges are short the woods are dark and I need a rifle that I can move fast and make hits with some serious punch

.35 whelen

Hoping to add the .375 Ultra someday if I can sweet talk the wife just right because once the kids are finished school Dad should be allowed to go to Africa just once before he dies.

Re: master list of all around cartridge list

1) 22-250- Max Range 500 yards- up to yotes. more for bobcats though.
2) .243 win- Max Range 900 yards- yotes only
3) 7WSM Max Range- 700 yards- deer
4).338 Rum Max Range- 1200 yards- ELk
5) .458 Win bolt Max range- Depends on how mean the critter is
.470 NE Double

these are Max ranges based on what I think would be effective range. I dont own all these cartriges, but certainly hope to one day.
