@Tra3@Hogpatrol do you think the 26 nosler is overkill? I’m genuinely curious. I find that a fast bullet is great at 350+ yards, but then you end up shooting something at 75 yards and it ruins a lot of meat.
I ask because I have only a few years to labor over the decision of what next larger caliber to get my son (I suppose it will be his decision, but I suspect I’ll be paying).
When he is ready for his next rifle get him a 35 Whelen and load it with 225grain accubonds and woodleigh projectiles to up to 2,950fps and have fun.
