    I have 3 'go to' calibres depending on the requirement; .223 (63 years old), .30-06 (114 years old), and .338 Lapua Magnum (37 years old), all of them well sub-MOA in my rifles. I don't think the ammo marketers are going to make any inroads with me. If I need anything bigger it will be the .375 H&H Magnum (108 years old). Apart for some relatively minor powder improvements the has been bugger all advancement in firearms and ammunition in over 100 years. The rest is all marketing!

    Hmm gundoc, I'm sensing a gap somewhere around the 120-143gr mark, 116yrs old.

    I have tried 6.5x54MS, 6.5x55, and 7x57, all of which performed well, but the .223 and .30-06 give sufficient overlap to keep the choice manageable. I do have a small clump of other calibres but I chose the three with best performance over the widest range. The 250/300 is one I have never tried but I do like its offspring, the .22/250.

    Yeah but it'd have a cool wizzbang name like 7-277 Western.

    I have read a few articles on the 6.8 Western and yes, it does look interesting....but again possibly not interesting or compelling enough to get me to change.

    I already have my two go-to rifle cartridges in the in the safe. I started out just owning the plain old .308 but then after reading this article.....

    The NEW 7.6 Creedmoor Best .30-Cal Cartridge Ever? « Daily Bulletin

    I rushed out and bought me one of these fancy 7.6 Creedmoor's and now I really don't want for anything more......

    Only problem I have now is when I go out for a hunt I always have trouble deciding whether to take my .308 or my new 7.6 Creedmoor......

    The problems we have in this beautiful free abundant country......

    Cheers

    I might have to get one to fill the gap between my .270, .284 and 7RM.

    Anyone want to buy a CDL SF in .270?

    Fancy a 6.5 instead.

    OK, you've got me....I've done a quick search but couldn't find anything on what it is....

    What is CDL SF ????? I see reference to it in a variety of calibres but nothing explaining it per se.

    Cheers

    You know what I like? Long actions. If you are willing to carry just a hint more action, then you can dear your projectiles to whatever you like.

    There was a time when logic dictated that a small bullet launched by a huge case was easier to shoot because there would be less hold over required.

    This was sound knowledge for decades till ballistics calculators became regularly available and people started shooting ordinary rifles in long range targets.

    Turns out that little fast bullet has terrible aerodynamics and is like entering a van in a formula one race. They fly like a plane with no wings.

    What in theory was a flat trajectory actually wasn't, relative to much slower, quieter things with less recoil, that didn't burn out barrels.

    Thus, the myth of the flat shooting 270 died

    I can hunt with a 303. Everything else is academic. But if you want to make real comparisons in real world shooting challenges, the new chamberings with fast twist barrels and ultra-aerodynamic projectiles are way easier to actually hit things with.

    Mickey - I’m not desperate to sell it, but I also really don’t need it. I bought it for $1500 with a vgc DPT can and 1/2-28 tpi thread. It’s bedded and previous owner said around 200 rounds down the barrel. Bore has been thoroughly cleaned of copper and carbon and looks mint, but I never fired it. Bolt fit in the raceways and lug contact are very much better than other Remingtons I have owned. If anyone is keen I would pass it on for what I paid. It’s living with forum member Brenick while I am away in Aus working.

    Cheers

    Bought on a whim and I was planning on running 145 ELD-X and Superperformance at 3000 or close.
