What are the calibers you recommend "consolidating" around, and for what purpose? Here are my recommendations: .22LR - Good for small game, cheap, compact, and lightweight to carry .357/.38spl - versatile (all my guns would be .357) simplicity of use for revolver, mild loads for self defense 2 legged animals, powerful loads for 4 legged animals 9mm - prevalent cartridge, powerful enough... yet still small and cheaper than others 12 gauge - powerful, short-range, ability to use slugs/birdshot/buckshot for hunting all types of game What am I missing???? Should I have another rifle caliber???? Are there any downsides to the above loads? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
