Just picked up some ground that's got quite a few Galloway reds on it so decided to get a bigger calibre than my old .243. I already have a variation for a .308 but have decided its not the one for me because of the banana trajectory. I'm thinking of either the 7mm08 or 6.5x55 so would like your thoughts.
What's important to me is a flat trajectory and low recoil if thats achievable from these rounds. I do like the .243 so would like something that shoots similar to that with a bit more knock down and possibility of taking longer shots if conditions are right. Availability of factory loads isn't really an issue.
