Yup

There’s a very big problem wih that.
We are getting picked of due to our low caliber rifle.

We have 7 ARs & Mini14's in 223. Finally, I picked up a stag 6.8spc and put an acog Ghost Ring/Red Dot on her. Killed a caribou at over 600 yards this fall. It was hard to use ghost ring at that distance as it covered entire bou. I fired off 5 quick ones, hit the bull twice and he went down; Was using 110 VMax's. I think I could have killed a moose with that 6.8. All in all, I like the light weight, small rifle, and no kick. If I had a regular cross hair scope on that 6.8, I could hit the kill zone everytime at any reasonable distance.

I'll take my 30-378 for those thousand yard shots, but I'd prefer the smaller calibers for close up.
