I will revise my Idea now that I know this encompases N.A.

S1 is right on except.. lets be realistic, if this is one gun scenerio you need reliability ....

A semi- auto takes the risk of to many moving parts and to much to go wrong... especially in heavy cover way out in the middle of know where...
I think you want to employ the K.I.S.S. method..

If you need extra ammo. Work the rifle to have a detatchable mag.

But I agree with Caliber and bullet choices.

I might reconsider the twist to be a 10 twist.. However, you may over rotate the light bullets...( POOF ) [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

The 110 Vmax goes poof in an 11 twist just above 3,800 fps. The 125 Nosler will go over 4,000 in an 11 twist, no worries!

My choice will probably be a lot different from most here.

I'd probably opt for a fast, flat shooting 22 centerfire. Such as a 22-250 or maybe a 223 WSSM.

Great accuracy, plenty of good bullet selections, and not as rough on meat and fur.

Being limited to only one rifle, puts my mind in a self sufficient survival mode. ( IE. I screwed up and did something really stupid and was faced with either disappearing, or spending the rest of my life in a cage ) I would be limited to only what I could carry. Luxuries are out, a single rifle would have to provide both food and fur. Big holes make for cold blankets.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?

It depends if it was just for this continent it's the .338 Win Mag but if Africa was included I'll take a Ruger M-77 safari rifle in .375 H&H Magnum.

But like kk said you can't have one rifle to cover it all man a .338 or .375 on p-dogs would be hell but I ain't taking my .22-250 grizzly bear hunting. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

TEXAS-in answer to your question on AAXMP5744.THIS is alow bulk density powder that is designed to shoot reduced loads.EXAMPLE 300ULTRAMAG 125NBT-45gr@2660fps@28000psi-topload 67grains@62000psi&3600fps.This powder can be used in 22hornet to 50/140-3.25"SHARPS.NOT a speed demon but looks useful.I have not tried it yet. ALSO TEXAS-YES I HAVE A 2YEAR OLD.
