I'd appreciate your thoughts on my #s 4 and 5.

I use rifles but have been more into pistols ever since I was a kid because weight and having a free hand has always been important to me.

I've used many types of firearms through the years but never read up on much,just used what I liked to get the job done and let it go at that.

Just an idle 2 cents before checking out...if you can use a single shot (or a Desert Eagle!), have you considered a .256Win.Mag.? Few do...but it's a scorcher, with a small bullet.

Glad harpseal is here. The usual suspects...and I am their fan.

Some general guidelines for cartridges are as follows a "High-Powered cartridge is one that would be suitable for large and dangerous game. Now what is the exact floor of "High Powered cartridges" I really can not say. Some might consider a .270 to be a "High Powered" cartridge. Others might state that a .300 Magnum is the start of "High Powered" cartridges.

The .223 Rem is a "high Velocity" round. It does not have a large mass like say a .458 Magnum and it was originally developed as a medium powered rifle round. IMHO any rimfire rifle round is low power.
