all my rifles above 24 cailber are magazine rifles, because they're hunting rifles. But all my varmit rifles are either single shot or converted over to single shot. I like this better in a varmit rig, becuase it makes me shoot slower. The tightest groups I shoot are always from single shot rifles. Yet we could simple just drop a round inside the rifle and chamber it of course. On the otherhand we all see folks go hunting every year with Ruger Number One's, and 1885's, and hear no one cry about them being a single shot rifle. But of course they are a completely different style rifle.
Another poster commented about rifle scopes and being able to use them. I'll agree 100% with his post. Now in my old age I'm now taxed with having to wear trifocals (is that not a cruel joke?), and find that a lot of rifles scopes just don't work very well with my eyes anymore. Now I'm looking at a couple mildot scopes to use on two rifles I'm putting together. I find I can pick up the mildots better and of coure easier and faster. Yet having never owned a mildot scope I know it's a new learning expierence for me. In the past I've always been one who counted clicks, but dosn't work so well for me these days due to the fine cross hairs and the even finer dots I prefer. Anybody want to donate a new set of eyeballs? <g>
Whatever the OP decides to do on his new quest, I'm certain he'll be happy, and I can only wish him a lot of luck!
