Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

Last month I built 3 rifles for myself:
a) 1885 257Roberts Ackley Improved Rimmed Sept 5 - Sept 29 = 24 days, my first 1885
b) Rem 700 7mmRM Sept 25 - Oct 8 = 13 days, my second Rem700
c) Commercial Mauser 260Rem Oct 8 - Oct 11 = 3 days, My 16th Mauser

The suggested cartridges:
6.5/284
7WSM
7RUM
7AM
300WM
300WSM
300RUM
338RUM
338LAP
338EDGE

I have chambered a few 300WM, but it is not as good as 7mmRM for long range.
The 284 case head is weak.
The rest are obscure.

Probably a 270 for my wife or a 12 gauge for me.

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

I would really like to give the 30/378 a go as well as also running my 338 Lap...i am very interested to see the comparisons between both from an accuracy point of view and the ability to take down large Red deer Elk in NZ.
The 6.5x284 while being very accurate, I dont consider it to be a long range BIG GAME calibre...any comments?

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

A friend told me...What really is effective is a bowling ball dropped out of a Boeing 747...if the distance is so great you can't control shot placement...no amount of "retained energy" i.e. XXX"# is a practical solution to shooting game animals.
