Good morning, following a discussion I had the other day with a friend I thought I'd ask for some opinions about the following calibres. The round is to be used on both Deer, Goats, and Boar in this country and abroad, does anyone have experience of using both the 7x64 and the 8x57 IS ? He already has a 6.5 x 55.
My Lee loading manual doesn't seem to have any data on the 7x64 hence I can't compare the two. Looking at ballistic stats online they both seem to be in the same league with the 7x64 having just a little more going for it. The 8x57 IS also suffers from having been a military round and thus will be somewhat limited to which country's it can be used in.
Kindest regards, Olaf
