Newbie help please
Am in the middle of selecting a caibre for my new rifle.
need it to shoot casual targets too 1000 yards, and also be my stalking back, up so cant be too heavy.
Thinking of : 6.5x55 Ackley Imp, 6.5/308, 6.5/284 or even 300 wsm. Worried the 300wsm will kick like a mule, and have heard the 6.5/284 eats barrels in about 1200 rounds.
Any advice/experience or other suggestions gratefully accepted
