The "Perfect" Deer Rifle
My uncle is planning on buying a new rifle soon, and we've been discussing what calibre he should get. We hunt Missouri, where there can be shot from 50-800 yards depending on if we are hunting crop fields or in the timber. He wants a rifle mostly for shots under 450 yards, but also for the occasional longer range shot as well. He also like cartriges that aren't that popular, just so he can say he has something different. We got it narrowed for now to .264 Win mag, 6.5-284, .270wsm. I really like the .264, but it's belted and I usually stay away from belted cartriges...I don't really have a good reason other than I've never had one. Any help and info will be appriciated.
