Mine would have to be .300 WM, great ballistics, great for medium to large game and just plain fun
What do you call a fly with no wings?

260 rem.
Gentle on the shoulder but fast and flat.
Good for medium size game and long range plinking.
And not a 6.5 Creedmoor :lol:

.22 lr.
Cheap.
Most of my Rifles are 22s.Including my first Rifle and inherited ones.
Able to be shot at more ranges.Means they get more use.
Quiet enough for small blocks.
Still capable of taking Rabbits and Foxes.
Cheap enough to get a sore trigger finger before going broke.

Can't go past the 6.5 creed.
I do enjoy my 7mm rem mag but the creed just robinhoods everything.

Not bad for a gatling gun but for me the Germans did it better.
Put the 88 in the Tiger and then you've got the ultimate tank killer for a period of time .

the gau-8 isnt the best no. but the fact that they built that then designed the a10 to fit around it is pretty damn cool.

hey what do we do with this gun? i dunno? build an aircraft on it?
