Thermal Imaging


Iím after the perfect caliber to shoot deer with a quality Thermal Imager.

I am currently shooting the TI off an AR platform. This has smoked countless animals, however isnít giving me the desired results at 250m.
Looking to change to a bolt

These are my restraints

- light weight
- flat shooting
- quiet
- low recoil
- ammo price
- want to shoot dead as animals can be hard to find in the dark

What caliber suppresses the best?

I have been leaning toward .308 because ammo is cheap and have the option of subsonic rounds (I am aware of the short comings of subsonic ammo).
