That is a really good word you put in "confidence".

The caliber and chambering may not be as importance as confidence in the firearm and ammunition.

Example: I have an R700 in 300 RUM as well as a self build Vanguard 300 WSM. If I were to leave today, I would take the Vanguard and stay sub 500 yards, simple, I have confidence in that combination. I'm not ready to take the RUM on the beyond 500 yards hunts because I don't have confidence in where that bullet is going.

Oh, and there are additional 30 cals, .338 cals, .284/7mm cals, .264/6.5mm cals .243/6mm cals in the safe.
