I am trying to decide on what caliber I should get next. The end use will be for deer, antelope and coyote size animals. I hunt in Minnesota, Missouri, Wyoming, Colorado and Montana. The current calibers I own for this purpose are 300 win mag, 30-06 and 45-70 for heavy wooded areas. I am currently having a 338 rum built - however that is more for Elk and some bean field deer hunting in Missouri.
The calibers I am considering are - 270wsm, 7mm rum and 300wsm. Any thoughts on those calibers or suggestions of any others? I reload so would be open to wild cats. Have not decided yet if I will have a gun built or by a factory gun.
Also - please don't tell me the 30-06 and the 300win mag will work. I know that - there is just an empty spot in my safe yearning to be filled with something new and different.
