Was starting to hijack the tundra rifle thread and figured I'd start a new one.
I've been thinking about getting a new Alaska Predator Rifle and was considering something larger than the 22-250. I've never hunted wolves and have only had a crack at them on a moose hunt last year (didn't get a shot). I was thinking of something along the lines of a 243 since wolves are much bigger than the coyotes I'm used to shooting. Will the 22-250 perform adequately on a wolf? If you were starting from scratch would you choose the 243, a 22-250, or something else? I've also toyed with the idea of an AR in 243, but am concerned about the performance of a semi auto in the cold weather.
What would you use for a gun that will be used for calling and toting on a snowmachine to shoot everything from fox to wolf with a emphasis on the wolf?
