Wildcat vs. Proven Caliber
So my buddy and I have been argueing for over a month, would like to get everyone's feelings. My wife has a cow elk tag here in Nevada. We are using a 7mm Mag. she has shot it and has no problem with the recoil or anything else about the weapon except the weight( I will be carrying it while we hunt and hand it over if she gets a shot...no bigee). He wants her to use a 25-06 AI that he had built. My problem is this, that is a light slug, yes it can do the job, but it runs a chance of wounding the animal. I know, I know proper shot placement alleviates that. The weight of bullet we are using is 162 grain Hornady, and his 25-06 is a 116 grains I THINK not sure. So would love to here your opinion.
