Huntem,

Pronghorn rifles don;t get much better then what you have discribed, you will have a serious goat rifle there my friend.

The 257 Wby offers great performance in a factory offering, getting it out of the Wby rifle is the best choice you made. That should raise some hackles [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]!!

Yup, even more energy at range than the 7mm [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Always have a backup plan. In my case it was for short range [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Ultimate Pronghorn Rifle, opinions welcome....

Kirby:

Iíve got to go with the 257 Allen Mag with probably a Lilja barrel, probably around 30", more than likely fluted with brake. Iím guessing a thumbhole laminated stock with the usual Harris bipod.

Action will probably be the Rem 700 fully accurized with all the goodies.

The scope will probably be a variable with an upper range of about 14 Ė 16 power, but possibly a little higher although I doubt it.

Bullets will probably be Wildcats in a heavier weight for energy retention and wind bucking, not to mention the accuracy.

If itís strictly for deer and or antelope then this should fill the bill. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
