Im thinking of getting a new medium caliber bolt rifle and I am contemplating a .243 or a 25-06. Im thinking about shooting Cape buffalo, Rino and Kodiak browns..... Ok just kidding... clean the coffee off you screen.
This will be a fun shooter for stuff in the range of blacktail, predators, and possibly sheep. Maybe on occasion a caribou. And some lower 48 deer. Im looking at something with good balistics, lower recoil so my girlfriend can shoot it without that evil look in her eye after that first shot. I am also planning on reloading to optimize accuracy and familiarity with the cartridge. Anyone have any opinions on the two? Or an alternative?
