I have a problem. A little history is in order. I have 3 fused vertebrates in my neck and a plate and 4 screws.
I want to get into LRH but me and recoil don't get along to well anymore.
So, what calibers should I be looking at? 30-06 makes me flinch anymore....I know.
I just keep thinking every time I squeeze the trigger on bigger calibers I'm going to back out a screw or something and do damage to my neck. My surgeon told me I could go back to doing whatever I want.....but with the current pain I feel in my neck I worry about it.
Anyway, 'nough of that....so....what calibers? 600 yards is my current goal for target shooting as I feel that for me at least ethically I shouldn't be shooting at anything past 200 yards when hunting deer. Now, coyotes is different.
I'm thinking 243win......less recoil and I already have guns chambered in it. good for deer out to 350 with a well placed shot and capable of 600 yard target.
What other lower recoil calibers should I be looking at?
