My dad is coming up to hunt caribou. I used to hunt everything in Montana with a .270 but now I hunt with a bow and have to claim ignorance regarding rifles and loads. He has two choices...30-06 and a .280 short mag.
Which would you recomend...if either? What ammo loads would you use with either of them? Would you shoot a bear with either of them?
I know that shot placement and practice make a big difference, so given that can anyone help?
