Reply To: .25 cal vs .30 cal ??????
I have an FX Royale 400 .22, a Matador .25 and recently sold my .30cal bobcat. After shipping, I regretted getting rid of my .30 and have since ordered another one. The .22 is great for pesting and squirrel hunting (headshots needed). The .25 is just an all around good caliber, but in south Louisiana where ferrel hogs are a problem, I prefer the .30. Some may disagree, but something about being able to down a hog or take a devastating heart/lung shot on a squirrel/rabbit makes my mouth water for the .30. I realize shot count suffers, but when hunting how many opportunities do you typically have to shoot 20 or 30 rounds? Our squirrel limit is 8 and when I shoot a hog that’s in a group the others typically scatter.
