    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?

    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.
