So you honestly believe that a .244 would make as large a wound channel as a .284 or .308 projectile which would leave a better blood trail?
Did I say that? I must have missed it.
I'm not one to argue against using enough gun when hunting. I like to use plenty for while I'm not one to worry too much about the critter, I hate losing em and chasing them all over God's green earth trying to finish em off. But once you've got "enough" for the job, not much is gonna make up for a deer shot in the gut or a leg or any other non vital spot. Does equal penetration and 1mm difference to start mean that much? Not in my book.
