If the military is using these, there is always a chance that one can get that ammo, regardless of what.

If Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama are in office...
5.56-M4 or 249carbine
7.62-SASS or M14
To fight off the communists who are taking the rest of the guns from my house!

All kidding aside...
30-06-everything else
.338Edge-for long range and just so dang fun to shoot!
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

This may be cheating a bit but

1. A .338 Snipe-Tac. For Moose and anything smaller

2. A Custom .50 BMG repeating boltgun Mcbros action and stock w 36" barrel made by Vandyke Rifles/Or my M82, tough call. For anything bigger than Moose

3. An Anzion Ironworks 20mm mag fed rifle (with 14.5 and 20-50 conversion kit). For anything that the .50 BMG wont take down and for extreme range capability

3 calibres of rifles

Hi I have done just that for ease of registration and storage I also have my target rifles and 22's and shotguns.

So here is what I did after a lot of rethinking and looking at ballistics.

For varmint shooting here I have a Rem VLS that was a 243 that I rechambered to 6mmBR and cut the factory barrel to 22"the rifle has a 8X56 Kahles scope so its great for shooting under lights at night.

For a walk around/motorbike/car based all around deer and feral pest destruction rifle I had a 308 and have up graded to a Rem model7 in 7mmSAUM with a Leupold VXIII 3.5-10X40 with Boon and crocket reticle. immaking a folding stock for it at the moment.

The third rifle is for long range its a 338WBX on a Lawton 7000 with folding A5L stock and I am waiting for the 5 shot detachable mags to bed it them I will fit a Nightforce NXS 8-32 power scope.

Cheers Bill

My 6.5 WSM for deer size stuff near and far.
My 30-06AI for sentimental reasons.
My 338 RUM because it shoots tiny groups and delivers a helluva punch as far away as I can shoot straight.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
