I read the thread, thanks for the tip.

Do you NEED a .300WM or a .338WM or any magnum for elk or any of the smaller animals mentioned? I say "no you don't."

No need to be rude.

I don't want to have to shoot an elk or big deer or hog twice unless necessary. I want to be sure that the animal will be going down when that first shot hits them and that they won't be getting back up

I fully agree that u dont need magnum calibers, but I like the pure hard hittin calibers for big game. Thats a personal thought tho for a hundred years the 22 an others like the very good verry cool 30/30 have taken more game than we will ever be able to count. Need a magnum no, like the mags ohhh yea. So we are on the same page on the need issuse

Most of that is up to you and how good of a shooter you are.

True, but a bad shot with a good bullet is still a bad shot. A good shot with a bad bullet is usually fatal in one shot. A bad shot with a bad bullet, I don't even know how to describe it. A good shot with a good bullet is the way to go.

Wait, where am I?
