Ok I cant really decide so maybe some of you guys in here could help a little.
I have a Brno 270w. The rifle is heavy, and the Kaps 2,5-10x56 scope on it is heavy too. When you combine those things you get one heavy setup. But its great for stand hunting.
I want another one, it shold be a light syntetic rifle, probably a Ruger American. I just cant decide what caliber I should pick.
I have to say roehunting is my favourite and my rifle hunting is 95% roedeer. Should I then get a 243 og 308? Does the meat damage differ greatly between those two?
The good thing about 243w is that I then have a rifle only for roedeers ( here in Denmark its illegal to shoot anything bigger than roe with a 243w)
The good thing about 308W is that I could also use it on red deer.
Yes the 308w is a bigger caliber, but does it make a lot more meat damage on a roe than a 243w will? I guess that will decide what caliber to pick.
Hope you understand this little story hehe.
