Thread: New calibre

  1. #1

    New calibre

    Evening all
    How do you choose a new calibre? I am going to change a rifle I have a .243 and know an like the calibre but fancy a change, already have a 308 in the cabinet, the choices are just to many!
    what do you all use and why?

    Whatever your needs buy an inherently accurate 22 Hornet and enjoy Small Calibre life.

    204 ? 6.5x47 ? or 270 what ever you like as said tonnes of choice small wasp or a big bang as long as it makes you grin you go ahead and have one .

    Choose a bullet weight and construction
    match it to a suitable calibre
    choose a cartridge that drives said bullet at the speed you want

    or just get a .270...

    I do have a .222 as an enjoyable small calibre. The 308 is provided by work so am looking to have something different!

    30/06 - a fNtastic round that has more of a "ba-doom" than a "bang", you can knock down pretty much anything that walks the planet and also shoot rabbits and long range with it.A very versatile round.Regards,Gixer

    Seriously though, you have a .222 and a .308 so you're missing a big bore something that starts with a .4
