    Ideal General Purpose Deer/antelope Rifle?: Review article

    Hi all,

    I came across this review which might be of interest.

    Its a good outline review of the available calibres and benefits of each for CXP2 class game and looks to discuss the 'Ideal General Purpose Deer/antelope rifle.

    American based but might be useful for newbies like me trying to get to grips with what everyone else seems to know!!

    Interesting, and very close to what was recommended to me (and which I bought!)

    With the exception of the 6.5 Magnum I'd follow those lines 100%. I don't see enough difference in the 260 and 6.5 to differentiate between the two (I have the 6,5x55) and the 7x57 and 7-08 are favorites of mine.~Muir
