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..

    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...."

    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]

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

    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 ......
