Re: Aoudad/Barbary Sheep???
I have an auodad hunt booked for this coming Feb. 2011 in the Palo Dura Canyon area with Toby Joe truby as a guide. But, I am conflicted as to which rifle I want to hunt them with. I have a Rem. 700 Mountain rifle chambered in 260AI. I load 130 gr. Bergers that group great @ 100 yds. and shoot even great groups out to 500 yds. This 260AI was built by Darrel Holland in Powers, Oregon. Great shooter and I am very confident in its' abilities. I have taken many antelope and deer with this rifle. I have posted this question on other websites only to be advised to take a larger caliber rifle. Now, I do have a Rem. 700 SPS in 300WSM that I load 180 gr. accubonds. This I took to South Africa to take 5 plainsgame animals. All 1 shot kills. It does shoot well to 300 yds. Beyond that I have little confidence. It is not a recoil issue. That has never been an issue with me. I am looking for input and opinions as to which rifle you all think would be most suitable for Barbary Sheep. Thanks in advance for all help in this request. MTG
Good luck, good hunting and good shooting!
