    What Caliber...

    Went to the field with you this fall so far? Personally I have heavily leaned on .300 Win Mag.

    What about you?

    So far this fall it has been only the .54 muzzle loader.

    This coming week it will be a .25-06.

    The first of next month it will be a .340 Weatherby.

    Then the end of December it will be back to the .25-06 but I am thinking for those real long shots on a coues perhaps the .340 Weatherby again.

    So many calibers to chose from and too few hunts.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    So far it's been my 6.5 Creedmoor for deer and antelope. I'll be taking the 300wsm for elk.

    I just got back from an antelope hunt down by Bannack Montana (First Territorial Capital) and I got a nice doe for the freezer. I used my .280 AI that I had built on a Model 70 Winchester two years ago. I has taken three animals with three shots so far and that's what I'm going to use on my elk, deer, and black bear if I'm so fortunate. Using 140 gr. Nosler Partitions at a chronographed 3230 fps.
