Having searched the historical threads, I cannot find something that answers my specifics. Apologies if this has been done and I don't want to start another 'best calibre' thread.
I have a 243 and use it for roe, munty and foxes. Occasionally I'll take vermin with it, because I can, and I'd rather take the CF if out foxing during the day in case a munty/roe presents.
I might soon have the option of hunting larger species, and am keen to take a day or 2 on boar this year. Whilst I could use the estate rifle, its always nice taking your own.
I like the 270 - but wonder if its too close in performance to the 243?
If thats the case then maybe I will look for something bigger, I'll take the 270 or larger if primarily after larger animals and keep the 243 for the smaller stuff.
I am keen to stay at 243 and not go smaller (granted a 22 cal CF for foxes and a 270 for everything else would work) as I would always like to have the opportunity to shoot deer if one is seen.
Anyone run a couple of bigger calibres and add reasoned comment please or anyone ditched the 243 for 270 and likewise tell me their thoughts?
