    what's the obsession with large calibres

    what's the obsession with super-large calibres? it seems these days there's a crowd chasing canons for their chosen weapons...whatever happened to the good old small-mid sized deer calibres

    hi mate what are u calling large calibres

  3. #3
    My biggest is .308

    Anything larger and I'm afraid the price of cleaning-patches would ruin me.

    LOL, good point..never thought about that Shaun,,I'm think this thing about 7mm RM, 300WM, etc. for deer sized game...a bit OTT no?

    PKL - have you ever fired a 300WM?

    It is a super flat shooting, versatile calibre that can be loaded to take everything & anything in the british isles & europe. Althought its not my main rifle, i wouldnt be without it in the cabinet now.

    see my post of "flat shooting" in the 243 vs 308 thread
    its no more flat shooting than the 270, and we dont have moose requiring 180+ grain rounds

    It might add 30yds to your MPBR
