Looking at a new calibre, 7 x 57. Any suggestion?
I have . 243 Steyr Pro-Hunter and also Double Rifle in 8 x 60 . I need a rifle that would reach out a bit for Stags and also handy for African plains game. The old 7mm looks a good one for me . ( Yes the 8 x 60 is more than adequate but more than one Outfitter has viewed the double as old fashioned!! and reluctant to countenance it)
I want full stock (Stutzen) Bolt gun. Steyr do one (SBS) in 7 08. Presently I do not have the time to spend working up a load for a calibre that is not easy "off the shelf". I want 7 x 57
Any pointers welcome
