As long as it's a decent caliber I take the gun your most accurate and comfortable with.

Re: What gun for 2011 antelope hunt ?

I tipped one over at 320yds. last fall. I shoot a 250 Savage (250/3000) in a FWT Model 70 Win. with a 22" barrel. 100gr ballistic tips. I know this is not the longest shot in the world but it is not bad for an old fart with Parkinson's. You do not need a cannon just a good shooter and lots of practice. And I do not mean sitting at a bench I did a lot of practicing laying on the ground and shooting at the target

.257 Wby. Magnum with a 100gr Barnes T-Shock at about 3800 fps.... There was a reason this was Roy Weatherby's favorite cartridge.. It needs to come out of a 26" inch plus barrel.. I like the 28" inch for this cartrdge.

I had a 22-243 built a couple of years ago just for Antelope hunting.

I have shot antelope over 400 yards with this rifle. I used an 80gr Sierra
boat tail hollow point and the antelope was DRT (dead right there).

Sgtcliff - nice caliber with the heavy bullets. I've got several friends with 'em, mostly for yotes, but have used 'em on deer here in Nebraska.

Unfortunately not legal for speedgoats or other big game in a lot of states, including Wyoming....
