Building A Backcountry Rifle — Caliber Selection — Hunt Backcountry Podcast Episode 69

posted in: Podcast | 1

In this, the second episode of our “Building A Backcountry Rifle” series, we discuss the topic of caliber/cartridge selection with Joseph von Benedikt. Joseph is an editor and writer for numerous shooting and hunting publications, and has spent years both in the field in pursuit of game, as well as at the range in pursuit of rifle mastery. We discuss the variables that one should consider when selecting a rifle caliber, and get Joseph’s recommendations for the top three do-it-all cartridges for western big game hunting.

As we discussed in this episode, we selected the Weatherby Vanguard S2 Backcountry rifles, topped with Vortex Razor HD LH optics.  We will have much more to say about these selections in the future.  Thank you to Weatherby and Vortex for supporting this series.

    This is a great series and great information. Joseph’s knowledge is very obvious. I would like to pick his brain regarding some larger calibers as I don’t trust all of the information I find on the web. Is there a way to get in contact with him? You can send me a personal message if needed. Thank you again for all you guys do.
