Thread: What calibre?

  1. #1

    What calibre?

    i was granted a 222-50 and a 243 i have been bouncing between the two calibres, now coming to buy a rifle i can't choose which one. i was hoping some people could help me by telling me pros and cons for each calibre. i will be using it to shoot everything from rabbits to roe deer.

    I shoot rabbits now and again with bigger than that.... it's a good way to check zero and leave something to attract foxes to later on.

    Er, change the .243 for a .308 or some such. You have a capable enough roe/munty/CWD rifle in the .22-250, open the gap out a bit.
