Hello, I am a rookie hunter and I will be heading out on my first deer & antelope hunt in Wyoming this fall with my father-in-law, brother-in-law and friends.
My brother-in-law just recently gave me a Ruger .243 rifle and I would like to take it with me on this hunt in the fall. With speaking with others they seem to think that the .243 does not have enough power and that I should consider a 7mm for this hunt.
Since I am still a little green having only one pheasant hunt under my belt, I wanted to solicit your opinions regarding this hunt and the best rifle to use.
Should I go with a 7mag or can I be successful with the .243???
Thoughts and feedback are greatly appreciated.
