I was watching a video the other day about the double shoulder shot, which seem like an effective shot to drop a deer in it's tracks. Supposedly it's such a shock to the central nervous system that...

I suspect that for most hunters in most circumstances, it's largely academic for which calibers shoot flatter than others.

I was just looking at another article that talks about the 260 Remington - seems to me that might be an overlooked diamond in the rough, and since it's a necked down .308, brass for reloading would...

I like the idea of a 280 Remington - on paper it looks like a peach. However, the 270 is SO popular, it's hard to deny the sheer amount of great factory ammo on top of the plethora of bullets...

I think if I was going to buy a gun specifically for Bambi, both of those would be high on my list, with maybe the 270 edging it the 308. I'm also interested in the 280 Remington.

Here's a thought - an old but good condition Winchester Model 1890 would be a dandy rifle to add to the collection. I already have one, but it's not a great specimen, even though it shoots well.
