Here in my country .222 Rem is very common caliber. I have Tikka 12/70-.222 Rem for wildfowl.
I have also .22 Hornet, .223 Rem and .22-250 Rem rifles.
I use the 7mm-08 in my T/C Encore for whitetails. I'm running a 140 grain Nosler ballistic tip on top of some 4895.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.
