It seems that people assume that it requires a "brush busting" short range cartridge when hunting in thick or close stuff. Nothing could be further from the truth. Unless you're hunting with an .50 bmg, NO conventional shoulder fired cartridge is going to "plow through brush". Just because an cartridge such as 7mm08 is good for long range (reasonable), it's also good for close range too. AGAIN-NO cartridge of reasonable size is going to go through brush without deflecting, actually the faster spinning,better stabilized spitzer bullet will deflect LESS than an blunt nose slower bullet. This has been well proven.
