From the type of game you're going to be hunting to your range and ammo availability, there are a lot of different factors to consider when choosing the right cartridge. In New England, where Ross Roberge estimates a range of about one to two hundred yards, he uses a 6.5 Creedmoor because of the access to ammo when he first picked up the rifle and the availability of the components. The lower recoil, accuracy, and efficient reload make it his pick for deer hunting in this area. Find out what firearm Ross considers the best for hunting across the U.S.
