And because we love to shoot we will keep buying them and keep the industry looking for new options.
And there’s tahat too!
For myself I just like the appeal of different calibers for different purposes. As I mentioned I like my .340 for a all around cartridge. But for specific animals I'll pick one of the smaller ones that I have from a .25 caliber up to a .30 caliber, I have quite a few of those in between ones.Funny how our addictions/hobbies fuel whole industries.
That and giant military contracts...
Lately I have been on the .25 bandwagon. Before that it was the 7mm/284, and before that it was the .30's that suited me.
Granted there isn't a one size fits all caliber or round for the majority of North American game and how boring it would be if we all just had to shoot a .30-06 or a .243?
