Re: Pick one

The reasons we do some of the things we do is quite entertaining. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I know you'll have good luck with your build. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Good luck with your shootin'.

May the wind always be in your favor.

Re: Pick one

Best of luck with your health and your rifle build. Interesting how some of us geezers put so much importance on the reputation a cartridge has built for itself. Sounds like you have someone who can build a fine shooter, let us know how this all comes together.
Me, I will go with a 7mm WSM someday despite the excellent reasoning that the guys provided. Probably have to get another NonTypical from George Gardner since they are about as nice handling a rifle as I have ever played with and I happen to have the first ever built. George tells me that the M-700 WSM actions work very well, feed real nice, he has worked on the Remington M-700 a time or two.
Have to scratch the 6.5 itch first tho.

Re: Pick one

Dang Ian, I sure wish you had not mentioned 6.5. The little voices in my head keep whispering 6.5. Hurricane Rita dead centered me and I can't afford two rifles. Having had such great luck with my previous 280, what little good since I have tells me to build another. The little voices keep saying 6.5. I have a 1k match winning 300 win, and a custom 308 that could not be any better. Those two should leave out the need for another 280.

Oh the tortured life of a gun fanatic. So many calibers, all with great merits. I think we should form a committee on this board. When one of us is in a quandary about the next build we could just send them the money and have them do the build. Come to think of it, the decisions are great part of the enjoyment of what we do.

6.5 Go away, 6.5 go away. See what you have started?.
