Big bag of worms you just opened. I have always been a fan of my .223 and .22-250. But now that I am working more with my .243 I am loving the hell out of it.

Pick one of the three, but buya Savage. Won't be dissapointed.

.308 Mossberg
165 grain Winchester ballistic tip

Thats what I'll use each and every time
We stack em' up like cord wood with the .308
and my cousin uses a .284
Snipers were using the .308 for the longest time, some still do, although I'd
probably reccommend something smaller if your using the hides.

22-.250, .223, or even a 17.cal might even work
