What classifies a small/medium/large(big) bore rifle?
The other day I was at the range and a guy said his 338 was a big bore rifle. I did not say any thing but I thought that it was a very powerful rifle but in my mind a big bore rifle has a caliber that starts with a 4. While Medium bore starts with a 3 and small bore starts with a 1 or 2.
So is there a definition of "big bore" Vs Small bore?
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
