gnu BS: Hey rap and gnu (31) RE: BS: Hey rap and gnu 04 Aug 18

Well, I've been at this game (pun intended) for many years. I don't hunt anymore. Well, I bought steaks at Sobeys today but that's more gathering, I suppose.

It all depends on where you hunt. If I was going to Alaska, big nasty gun. Or, I could take my 270 if I had the eyes I had when I was a young man. Many in discuss the differences between such as a 270 and a 30.06. Fact is, both range out about the same up to 300 yards on drop and energy but the 30.06 has a far wider range of available cartridges (and cost less) so it's more popular. Both will deliver the energy but some say the larger the hole, the more blood... of course, I refer to the boiler room shot. If you prefer a blade or neck shot (neck shot??? WTF???), 30.06. But, for the boiler room, either are fine for moose up to 1200#. Beyond that weight, I can't comment, except to say, if you are under 300 yards, I would put my 270 against any 30.06 or the big guns.

Minds me of a story. I was in Gander, NF and a buddy showed me his guns. One was a Model 100 WIN 308. I told him a great story about my bro hunting wild boar in Germany and how he got to do it by trading a Model 100 for a hunt (another story). Buddy says, "I prefer the big guns (points to a 300) but this ain't bad. Took over 400 hundred with it." I was stunned. "400?" "Yes b'y. I'm friends with **** what owns **** hotels and each one gets 26 licences a year. Plus, lots a fellahs gets tags what can't hunt no more so I helps em out." Imagine that! Of course, owning a helicopter helps.
