Re: 30-06 or 243 deer?
.243 is more than adequate. And since youve been shooting it more youll be more likely to get that clean shot. take the .243
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
