Re: Help choosing caliber
Thanks for all of the advise. I do see that some have been asking for some more info to help me more so lets see if I can add alittle more detail. I currently have 2 rifles (custom 7 mag. and a 300 win mag. that has alot of work done:floated barrel, pillar bedded, trigger job ~ 2.5 LBS, and had the barrel recrowned) Both will shoot less than a half inch group at 100 yards. I don't look to have the opprotunity anytime soon to hunt anything but whitetail, but I want to have something that I could use on elk if I get a chance. I definitly want something that will be 1000+ yard gun and I don't think that you can have too much overkill. I am undecided about a muzzlebreak. I love handloading and from what I have read on this site, I don't think that I would have any problem with shooting a SMK at game animals. I would like to be able to buy brass for the rifle without getting into necking it down or fireforming. I have fireformed before with a 25-06 ackley improved, but didn't care much for it. I have no experiece necking down brass and dont even know what would be involved. I think it would be easier to just buy it.
Again thanks for the help
I just know enough about long range shooting to kno that I dont know sh*t about long range shooting!
