Thread: If I had to do it all over again

  1. #1

    If I had to do it all over again

    Ok, if you had to do it all over again, what calibres would you have. I'd personally go:
    a. .223 or .22-250 for fox, crows, etc.
    b. 6.5x284 or 6.5x47L for Roe/Munty
    c. .30-06 or 7mm for Sika/Reds/other large game

    Needless to say, it bears no resemblance to my current FAC permissions: .243, -06, .22lr

    I did this a couple fo years ago. Cleared the decks and started from scratch. Ended up with:

    22/250
    260rem
    30/06.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I am about to sell my tikka and get a breakdown barrel system. So I am about to do it all again.

    Currently I have a .308.

    I think I will go .308 again with .243 barrel. Might also add a 300 win mag

    I have over the years refined my choices and am happy.
    .17hmr small game (no .22lr now)
    .222 mag general roving rifle.
    22250 fox, deer and ground game.
    6.5x55 mainly roe and woodland rifle, I love this.
    7mm rem mag large deer long range fox and european hunts.
    just added a double O/U 9.3x74R for driven hunts (have to make my mind up with this as my rem mag always did the job well).
    Only regret is the rem mag is a dlx and I would have prefered an all weather, but in those days plastic stocks were horrid.
