    Please expand on this statement. Meat damage caused from a suppressor?

    You’ve chosen a great calibre, I’ve owned two and my first one was my first ‘long range rifle’ and I too traded up from a .270. No regrets it opened up a whole new world and I never looked back.
    My personal opinion of long range shooting is that the glass is a more important decision than calibre. It’s where the projectiles hit that seems to matter more than what size/shape it is.
    This point is well proven by the .223 thread.
    Enjoy the new shooter, you won’t be disappointed.
    @craigc this is the most logical comment I have read regarding calibre debates!

    I believe it was tongue in cheek, suggesting the suppressor could become a "projectile"

    I would have liked at price of available ammo. Factory stuff starts at $4 for standard 08 based cases and goes up from there in cals and for premium ammo. Gets bloody expensive if you shot a lot. Glad I reload these days
