    puli-poleva-1[1].jpg Polev's bullet ("pulja Poleva") -

    (old - left - is the best)
    The bullet is perfect in accuracy, including from the choke, and trouble-free in reloading. In a sense, this is Brenneke at a modern technical level.

    7,62x54R. Like 308, but more usable in double.
    Not everyone knows that from this caliber you can shoot 308 cartridges, especially in a brass brass. True, you need a strong ramrod for reloading.

    9.3x64Breneke

    Favorites . . .
    22-250 - Perfect for most animals. Hits well above it's weight class.
    257 Roberts (Ackley version too) - Awesome
    9.3x62 - Taylor & Aagaard put it succinctly, a work horse that always gets the job done. All time favorite.
    For Africa
    416 Remington
    9.3x62
    257 Weatherby
    * 257 caliber rifles produce dramatic results on game animals.
    * 9.3 - hands down, if I was limited to just one caliber.
    * 416 - well, you just gotta have a heavy.

    30-30, the rifle that started my love for Hunting, and kept me up reading old outdoor life magazines in my youth.
    .270 my go to, has never ever. Let me down.
    .350 rem Mag, most underrated caliber ever made. It hits Big Game like a sledgehammer, and the ballistics don’t back it up. It just does......
