Re: ONE GUN

One gun, hmmmmm...
I'd have to say I have it already, my Ruger 416wby.

My wife would get one too right? Hers would be the 30/338 Lapua Imp. You see the benifit of having a wife that shoots now don't ya! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: ONE GUN

GOOD POINT BRENT,I THINK MY 2YEAR OLD IS GOING TO GET HER FIRST GUN SOON. MY CHOICE FOR ONE GUN WOULD BE 300ULTRAMAG.LOAD IT DOWN WITH ACCURATE ARMS XMP5744 AND THEN STUFF IT FULL OF RL 25 OR WHATEVER IT LIKES, SET A 200 GRAINER ON TOP FOR MORE SERIOUS STUFF.JUST A THOUGHT.

Re: ONE GUN

If I could only have one rifle:

either .300 or .338 RUM. the 300 is a tad small on brown bear, and since they are at or above us on the food chain, I would go with teh .338 RUM there isn't anything on this continent that it couldn't handle and arguably it could handle everything including elephant and cape buffalo with the proper loads. (although not recommended)

Re: ONE GUN

When "life or limb" is on the line, I'll take the stompin power of any 416... anyday!

Other than that, a big 30 would be my choice for an all arounder!

Re: ONE GUN

I tend to agree with S1, in part anyhow.

I'm waiting for the last parts for my 6.5 to arrive. If I was allowed only 1 gun, this would definitely be it.

6.5mm /30-RSAUM
29" Kreiger Barrel
BAT Machine Left Port Right Eject 1.470 Action.
Burris BD 8-32 W/Posi Lock/Fine Plex
Richards Microfit Thumbhole In Electric Blue.
Solid Titanium 1 Peice Scope Mounts W/Burris Signature Inserts.
Jewell 700 trigger w/saftey

I will end up with this being a match gun but I can see it being used for a little hunting as well. Varmints out to 1000 may be possible. Bullet selection is terrific. Maybe not the number but the quality is great for 264's. It'll be pleasant to shoot, affordable for LOTS of shooting, and it'll kill anything I care to hunt, deader'n a stick! Recoil, zero. Velocity, I can see 3400 being possible from a 140Gr (about the limit of my last 6.5). And that's pretty flat for all your "point blank" shots out to about 300.

Thankfully, I don't have to make the decision to have only one, since I have entirely too much fun building the next one, and the next one...
