Default Big-Bore Calibers - what ones are keepers?

Found this info on page 43 of AR Hunt
AR Guns & Hunting - 2009 Volume 1 Issue 1

I had already bought the .458 Socom (need to get it working)
But this is a list I was looking for before.

Many calibers come and go. What one you think is going to be most likely to stay?

I left out these sizes since they are here to stay: (and only 10 slots to vote)

  • .223/5.56
  • 6.8 SPC

Did I miss any?

7 votes so far... one of them was for 6.8 Creedmoor ... I have no idea what
that round is or what it was designed for. time for a quick google search.

Not a lot of good info on it. Lot of people on the net asking the same
question though.


Mostly look for a round that doesn't disappear like the .222 and the .45 GAP
(bad examples since they are both around) maybe you can think of better \
ones.

300 BLACKOUT (7.62x35) is a fairly new caliber that you can add.
