Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-451- Seven Underrated Centerfire Rifle Calibers and originally aired on June 9th, 2010.
The following are the original show notes from that episode
I need a bit of a fun change up today after the recent server issues (which are now solved for a while) so I though I would break out with some lesser known rifle calibers. In out current world shooting seems to revolve around the 223, 308, 30-06, 30-30 and a host of the magnums. Sure there are quite a few 270s, 7mm-08s and 243’s out there too but what about the other roughly 500 cartridges, is there any place left for the oddball or the old classic that is no longer innovative?
Join me today as we discuss…
- Why even break the mold, do we really need more then a dozen solid center fires
- The “common caliber myth” why the common calibers will dry up first not last in a crisis
- Why reloading should be part of your skill set and how it mitigates any “odd” caliber
- What is a “wild cat” cartridge
- What does “burn rate” have to do with velocity
- The 22 Hornet – at one time it was the varmint round
- The 25-06 – a true “magnum” with out the punishment
- The 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser – the little round that has killed millions of Moose
- The 280 Remington – every bit the game getter of the 7MM mag without the abuse
- The 338-06 – the perfect medium bore cartrige
- The 44 Magnum – yes it is for rifles too
- The 45-70 – an old solider that won’t die nor fade away
