Ok guys what started out as an exploration of ideas for a new barrel for my contender has turned into a knock down drag out brawl over Caribou calibers among my friends. They are basically devided into 2 camps.
1) Any white tail round is a good pick and .223 is a OK choice. In fact this group points out that there are folks who've been hunting them for years with a 22lr. In another post I point out that I have taken Caribou with my conteder in 223.
2) The .223 is'nt big enough, your lucky you did'nt have too track yours for miles. And people who hunt them with a 22lr are taking undersized animals and are not making a humane kill.
Where do you stand???
(sorry if posting 2 simular topics in 2 spots is a no-no but I'd really like too know your opinion on this one, if so it wont happen again)
