6.5-06 or 6.5-06AI for caribou size down and use my 35 Whelen AI for everything else. Just need to be different.

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

I build one more 7mmRemMag rifles every year for myself, but I also still experiment with 243, 260, and 257RAI.

7mmRemMag is the king of long range hunting rifles that can be carried.

voted 300RUM. I'm having a APS Raptor Stalker built in 300AX, should have it before next years deer season. After that maybe one of Kirby's monsters based on the cheytac case. b

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

I have to revise my 'next rifle will be in ? cartridge'.....

Any cartridge that has components readily available, including powder and a variety of different projectiles for different applications.

I don't want an off the wall caliber that you can't find brass for or you can only get a couple styles/manufacturers of bullets and the powder is non-existent unless you order a year in advance.

Phooey on that crap.

I'd say a 223 but you can't hunt anything sizeable with a pea shooter. I've taken whitetail with a 223 but shot placement is everything.

Something in the common 3 series I suspect.
'It's not about me, it's about we'..........
