.303 and .308/7.62*51 are the usual suspects, .6.5 in some form would also be a good shout.

Alan


Thank you, .6.5 is not a Calibre I am familiar with

Hi All

So far over the last 2 months I have shot the following guns

.357 Rossi, Underleaver
.44 Ruger 77/44, bolt action
.357 Ruger 77/357, bolt action
.22 Sig Sauer 522, semi automatic
Howa 1500 .223, bolt action
.223 Ruger Mini 14, straight pull
.22 Henry Golden Boy, Underleaver
.22 Smith and Wesson M&P, Semi Auto
.22 BSA Martini international rifle, martini action
.22 Remington 597
7.62 AK47, straight pull

What do you suggest I try next?


Seeing as .303 and 7.62 have been mentioned already, you need to add 30-06, 7.92x57, 7.62x54R, 45-70, and maybe some bigger cal underlevers, like .44mag and .45 Colt.

I do fancy a big calibre underleaver so that is definitely on my list
