Re: need help picking a caliber


Welcome to LRH! Out of you choices, my pick is as follows:

1. .300 WM
2. 7MM RM
3. .30-06

Good luck and happy safe hunting!

Get the 300 Win. Mag.

I load 130 Barnes TTSX at 3550 fps. for coyotes, hogs, whitetails, etc. and 168 Barnes TTSX at 3150 for Elk and mule deer and you could load 180's for heavier critters. Very versatile caliber.
