About to get my first game rifle; T/C Encore. Want to get a rifle barrel for it in either 7mm mag or 30-06.
Very new to the hunting world, only have shot birds previously, so some have recommended the '06. It seems the '06 has a larger selection of bullets/weights.
Use: Axis deer in Hawaii and Alaska use: black bears, deer, moose caribou (are they available to us out-of-staters?)
Leaning towards the '06; need to decide in the next few weeks (hunt coming up March 12 and need to practice!)
What do you guys think?
