Thread: Which two calibers would you choose?

  1. #1

    Which two calibers would you choose?

    I have a 270win, but just bought a 223Rem because roe hunting is my favourite and why not get a caliber which is perfect for that. In my opinion 223Rem is that.

    Now I have 270win and 223Rem. 223Rem for roe and fox and 270win for larger animals.

    Now after I got my 223Rem I cant decide if I should change my 270W to something better, when I now have two rifles. Instead of having small and medium I am think about having small (223) and large (9,3x62, 300win mag)

    What do you think and what would you do?

    What I plan using my 270w for is Roe, Wildboar, Stags, Fallow, Moose in Sweden and so on.

    And as I said 223R only for Roe and fox.

    When the rifle cracked, the buck turned over clear over in the air, and hit like a bag of potatoes.
    "Whoopee!" said Zefarino. "That's the kind of rifle I like, one that has power. One shot and the buck doesn't move. How do you call it?"
    "The .270," I said.
    "The same one you shoot the ram with, no?"
    "The same."
    "With the .30 you shot a buck and it ran. Then the smaller boy shoots a buck with the .25 and it ran. Now the large boy shoots a buck with this rifle and it is dead in its tracks. How good a rifle, this .270!"
    "It shoots a good ball," I said, "--a very fast ball."
    "Like the lightning!" said Zefarino.

    Why do anthing other than purchase a nicer 270??

    Yea I have to admit that 270w is a nice allround caliber.

    Maybe I will change my mind when I have tried my 270 on a wild boar and it went right down ;-)

    9.3x62 would probably do what you want.

    I've got one and I really like it. (Sometimes for roe the .300WM can have too much velocity for roe if encountered close up. A well constructed 9.3 will not be going so fast so less chance of excessive bruising).

    308 is a great caliber, the forestry commission must use them for a reason

    .270 all the way....flat fast hard hitting....

    .308 win and .375 h&h

    Shoot most of my deer and fox with the 308, but the 375 stamps authority on anything it touches. The .223 is great but it's not the big sexy...

    Why have two if you can have three 22/250. 6.5x55 .308 arhhh that's better .
