what caliber gun everyone likes using for antelope?

once and done for me-put in 22 years straight.  always wanted to use a .257 Roberts or .257 AI in a custom mauser or old winchester m70.  did not have one and ended up using the m70 30/06 i killed my first deer with almost 50 years ago.  dad traded for it at Babbitt Bros. Trading Post in flag in 1953.  150yd shot,  sighted dead-on 450yds.

Shot mine last year with. 7mm RM.  Would use any 6mm or lager caliber.  Remember it can Be very windy, I was glad to have a heavier 7mm load during my hunt.

Two years ago, I used a 6.5SS w. 150 SMKs @ 3113fps @ 183 yards.

Last year, I used a 6CM w. 105 Hybs @ 3101fps @ 450ish yards.

Taylor used a 6.5SLR w. 130 OTM @ 2900 @ 391 yards.

This year, I will be using 25SST w. 131 Blackjacks @ 3176fps.

Taylor will probably use the 6.5SLR again, or maybe my new 6.5SS w. 156 Elite @ 2976fps or my new 6.5SS shorty (if it is ready) w. 144 Hyb.  

And, if I finally draw an AZ pronghorn tag with a LOT of points, probably use my 25SST here too.  With my 6.5SS as a backup rifle.

1998, I used a .270 win at about 50 yards.  If I get drawn, I will use a .280 AI and will take the shot up to 400 yards.  I will try hard to make it a closer shot.
