If you were building a SA custom in something other than 6.5mm with a non mag boltface which would you choose? Assuming ammo availability wasn't an issue and used for Texas deer and long range plinking.
Cartridge choice
Only one choice allowed

I voted other. As I am currently having a 7-08 built for dual purpose.

Voted for the .22 Creedmoor because of the "cool" factor

6mm creed for me as I'd want it to handle mulies and sheep as well. 22 creed is very tempting though.

6mm-284, the caveat being ammo is no issue being a handloader. You can get as much powder under a bullet with this cartridge as I think is pratical. YMMV.

I voted 6 creed because the 105 hybrid around 3k fps is about as good as it gets imho.

I voted other as I feel like my 7mm-08AI serves very well in this role. A 162gr Amax at 2812fps is some stout medicine. That being said I am also building a 6mm Creedmoor to play around with but won't have a full opinion for a few months.

Where is D stroud.. I have built him both the 6 and the 22 creed wonder his opinion fact that he drives them all the time. I personally say 22 creed as that is my daily driver. Been deadly out to 455 so far and was shooting gongs at 900 this weekend

Since I am always behind what the KoolKids are doing..for a long range plinker I'd build a 280AI VT style something...and bang 4 footed stuff as far as I could see them with appropriate for critter sized bullets.

I voted OTHER, I can't buy those at Walmart, and I am very forgetful, so Walmart is important

Of that list the 22 Creedmoor, fun pushing a 22 pill at high velocity. But for it to really shine go with a 1:7 twist and push the Berger 90gr bullets fast. But still will do good with the Swift 75gr Sirocco for popping game at a distance from a light recoiling rifle.

Could do a 224TTH and have a little more room for powder bolt
