.32 REMINGTON FOR LARGE GAME
.32 REMINGTON FOR LARGE GAMEóDo you consider the .32 caliber Remington Auto loading rifle heavy enough for such large game as is found in the Rocky Mountains?
I used two .32 Special rifles in northern Minnesota, and found that caliber large enough for deer and bears but guns never seemed to fit me, so I bought a .30 Remington and it seems as if it were made purposely for me. I killed my allowance with it last fall and I think it ought to be heavy enough for any game in the Canadian Rockies. Most big game hunters consider the .32 Remington powerful enough for any American game. It has greater power than the .30-30, which is the most popular of all the so-called high power rifles. Much depends on how you want to use the rifle. If you are a sportsman and are going there on a hunting trip, intent on killing your legal allowance of game, and will feel disappointed if you miss a chance, or lose a head of game, a powerful, long range rifle is recommended, say a .30 U. S., and especially if you are buying a new rifle. But since you have this Remington Autoloader and like it so well, I think you would do well to keep it, and I believe you will find it has sufficient power and range for your needs. It you are a trapper and mean to spend the entire winter in the mountains you will not want to shoot at all of the big game you see, only the close, easy shots until you have what game you want, so a long range, powerful rifle Is not needed, but when you carry the rifle day after day, light weight is more important than great power, and you can afford to sacrifice some of the energy and range and get a light weight arm.
