I am new to the forum, just found the website a couple of weeks ago, and love it!
I am thinking about buying a Howa or Weatherby Vanguard rifle, and have a couple of caliber questions. what kind of barrel life can I expect out of the following calibers? and what about performance out of a 24" barrel? I plan on having it bedded, and trigger tuned or replaced, would like a factory cartrige capable of 5-600 yard elk, with good barrel life.
Calibers I am considering, 7mm WSM
, 300 WSM
, 300 Win, 300 Weatherby, 338 Win. feel free to suggest others. I dont currently reload, but I am planning on getting into it.
