Re: Which Caliber for deer? .224 - .264
Wow! What great feedback! I would like to thank all of you: TAC, JD Jones, wild bill, Sniper2, Supermag, Mike/TX, xphunter & Screech. I really do like reading your comments & support in other discussions. You all carry alot of experience & are willing to share and help out, thanks. Notes are taken and what I have also found in the Texas Trophy Hunter magazine in the youth section where you can see photos of young hunters there seems to be allot of young hunter shooting the .243 -Again JDJones, Wild Bill, Sniper2 mentions the 6mm, Supermag, Mike/TX, xphunter & screech you all mention the .243 Hmmmmm. With the same information coming From 2 sources I think it's obvious.
One more question is that I have some hunting buddies that seem to have a bad taste in their mouth about the little ol .243 - you know how stories get started - they are saying things like I have heard of alot of deer running off from being shot from the .243 .. Do you think this is something they are making up and just jumped on the same band~wagon? My common sense tells me that a well placed shot within 300yds from this gun and it's lights out!
Hey, Mike/TX - thanks for the picture! Tell your daughter I said ~ Awsome Deer! Did you guys get that one mounted? Nice long tines. That one score about 135-140?
I hunt South Texas
