Just been reading past threads, (Bored) and one thing that sticks in my mind is the amount of discussion on calibres/ factory/custom/Wildcat.. etc..etc.
Having shot factory calibres for 20 years, .22lr,Hornet, 243, 6.5 x 55... I have never thought I needed a wildcat/bespoke/modified calibre, to do any work that I could do with a factory calibre. Just to be concise, I do specifically calibre, not rifle.
I have also had decent brands, rolled my own ammo and shoot at normal stalking ranges on high and low ground.
Now, please would some of you disclose the thought process behind your decisions to go 'Different' ?
I'm not looking to knock you, merely understand... and please explain why a factory calibre wasn't suitable if applicable.
Go for it.
