I don’t care what calibers really.

6.5 pound all up 22 to 6mm for small stuff

8 pound all up 7mm to 35 cal for big stuff

The rest of it is up to the shooter at that point.

Out of my battery, I’m keeping a 22 Hornet and a 30-06.

Good bullets properly placed always work, but not everyone knows what good bullets are, or can reliably place them in the field
