Thread: Recommend me a new cal ?

  1. #1

    Recommend me a new cal ?

    Ill be in the market for a new calibre rifle this winter , Something tough and durable . The calibre must be able to push 110 grain + factory ammo . Nothing too specialist as I'm on a budget , and be good for fox , cwd , munty and roe . I already shoot a .308 and really like it but I'm after something smaller . Please give me your setups and why you like them . I want a no nonsense killer I don't want a .243 .
    cheers

    .25-06 springs to mind. I have had one in the past, but as per my gallery don't have one now. Good luck JCS

    you're looking at 260rem or 6.5x55, even 22-250.

    edit - personally my next project will be a 6.5 HCM, but there's very little factory ammo about for them, so you pretty much have to reload.

    6.5 HCM are you referring to the 6.5 creedmoor? I believe its called that, reloading is a doddle for the creedmoor brass no problem now.

    I have a 6.8SPC - sticking to MatchKings & other such bullets in it fow now until the paperwork is through for field use.
    From use of the round in the USA it is has a lot going for it -seems to be THE round for pig in the US

    260 Rem has a lot going for it too

    Are you asking for a caliber or a cartridge?

    ah, good point!

    HCM, yes Creedmoor indeed. reloading no issue, but factory ammo if required is not so easy, so OP may be wanting to go 6.5x55 route or 25-06 or 260REM...of the three for the game mentioned, I'd probably to eiher Swede or 260Rem as the 260 can be chambered in a short action (not that it really matters as the difference is negligible).
