It’s difficult to lump the barren-ground, woodland and mountain caribou into one basket. I’ll soldier on nonetheless, however, fully aware that the mountain species can handle a pretty good wallop, and extended ranges are a possibility wherever caribou are hunted. That means the cartridge choice has to be flat-shooting and able to carry reasonable downrange energy out to 300 metres. With that, I’ll again select the 7mm Rem. Mag. It’s up to the task in any of Canada’s caribou-hunting scenarios.
