Need advise...

Looking to buy a new rifle this year, and would love some expert advise on what I want/need.

1)Stainless,fluted,synthetic.
2).30 cal, perferably magnum.
3)Hunt comfortably, but I shoot about 4 times a month off a bench w/ friends.
4)800-1000 yds.
5)Rate of twist??
6)Want something personal, different.
7)Hunt deer,elk,etc.
8)And most importantly. New excuse to tell the wife why I "need anougher gun!!" LOL [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

TIA..sakofan..

Re: Need advise...

You'd better put a brake on that .300 RUM! I'd get a Vais and have it threaded onto the end of the barrel.

I've got a camo-synthetic, which Remington made several years agot for a short time in 7RM. Cool looking gun, catches eyes at the range, and great for hunting. Everything buth the bolt and trigger are camo.

"Honey, I need a good hunting gun (camo) so I can stalk up on the game better, and longer range...."

Re: Need advise...

Had a brake on my Sendero too, Mark. Made a great rifle better.

Not sure if I want a AI 1.5 stock and all that or not.

Was thinking about a tacticle rifle, but that wouldnt allow me to hunt very well. I like to walk/stalk.
Mark, loved the "camo excuse" LOL.
All ready tried that one!!

Maybe anougher Sendero is the answer..sakofan.. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Need advise...

For 800-1000yds you dont need any more punishment than a 300wsm will give you--no need for the RUM IMO.

Re: Need advise...

try a Savage 110fp in 300wm, it has accutrigger, pillar bedding, heavy 24" barrel, the synthetic stock i would switch for maybe a Chaote Varminter. They don't make it in a 300rum yet but down the road re chamber it to 300rum, or just get a 300rum barrel and swap when you want

ps. long-range stalking = oxymoron

LOL ......
