Default New Varmint Rounds

How would you like to have these as your varmint rounds?


A 17-300 Ultra Mag or a 17-BMG Improved 40.

You would need a huge scope for them! Could Pick Em Off Around 2,000 Yards!

The Ultra-mag will be dead before it gets off the ground. Why would anyone just settle for one when they can buy the BMG? It's like settling for a mach2 when you can get an HMR. I bet there's a 4000fps difference between the two.

Actually I bet it won't be long before people in the deer hunting forum start discussing whether or not these are ethical deer calibers. They'll start posting scenerios like "if the trophy of a lifetime was angling towards you at 4200 yards, would you risk hitting his shoulder or take the neck shot".
