Thanks for the input. I realize it was pretty similar to another thread I posted... though knowing pretty much about shotguns I am a rifle newby-wannabe (not even a newby yet
) though game here is not that big, pretty much white tails or taruka (kind of a big high mountain whitetail) and then smaller game ideal for a .22 caliber gun, the ammo they bring here is mainly .30-06 .270 or .308. the .308 is allowed although it is a military used round. No problem there, and probably that will be the easiest round ill be able to hunt.
The interesting thing is the long-action short action stuff. Hunts for deer here take long walks in the mountains since we dont hunt in wooded areas but kind of desertly highland mountains (above 13000 ft usually).Shots are taken from 0 m up to 250-300m mainly.
We are not allowed to reload and I will need to shoot whatever is in the market, mainly Remington, Winchester, Sellier-Bellot. I am not small framed and I can take recoil, so thats not an issue.
I know I wont be dissapointed with any of the cartridges mentioned, but still I want to make the right-est choice.
