223 - turkey and plinking
260-- model 7 i mainly hunt deer with
250 Savage classic- Ground hogs and deer
2- custom 257 whby's i harly ever use any more but long range cap.
currently building a 25 Bobcat ( 25 wsm )
Marlin 22 magnum
Savage 17 HMR
2 muzzle loaders
Any suggestions with what i have and my purpose what would you pick.
Mike

Re: What would you choose for a free gun

I think you've got your bases coverd in the quarter bore range and varmit rifles.So go BIG. Its fun. I think that you can get a .338 RUM for that price in an SPS or somthing better. I dont know US prices so dont really know whats available. If you cant go with something like that then I'd say a Savage in a 300 Win. or 7mm Rem. It seem that you own more than I do and probably have more experience than me but thats my $.02. Ohh, dont forget the .375's. dont think you'll get anything bigger than a .375 for around that price unless its single shot.

Looks like you need a big bore. Something to reach farther out and hits harder. A big 30 cal or .338.

From what you already have...I'd go to a 308
