Had a chat today with a guy who spends 30 weeks of the year hunting recreationally, wealthy guy, travels a lot shoots in europe africa america and new zealand. he offered me some handy advice i think, and approved of my calibers which was a nice feeling. i shoot .22 .243 .275 .30-06
"don't worry too much about caliber performance, find a rifle thats comfy to shoot and comfy to carry in a caliber suitable for the job and that you can buy anywhere"
food for thought i guess!
