Default RE: Gun for wolf?


Thanks! The only other guns I have are .223 and 7mm. I think my father-in-law has a .243 that I could use.

Just remember to practice 200, 300+ yard shots WITH the ammo you are going to use and get well aquainted with the gun before you head to the hills. Federal has some great ballistics and windage charts.
Really all of these guns will do the job. But you want to preserve the hide for your trophy. So maybe the high velocity 7mm might do you well. More likely to have a pass through with little or no damage. "Fingerholes" in & out.
Bottom line is use the gun you are most confident in. You don't want to just wound one and piss him off.
