Difficult decision...or easy one?
I currently have what you would call a good problem to have...an older friend from Church is gifting out his gun collection to friends and family and has given me the choice of a couple rifles in his collection. I need some help/input on which way I should go.
Rifle A: Tikka in .300 WM
Rifle B: Winchester Model 70 in .338 WM
Neither rifle has been shot, but I know nothing more about them.
I currently shoot a remington in .300 WM that shoots well.
Do I go with the same caliber as what I have now since I have all the reloading equip?
Do I go with a new caliber that I don't currently have?
Do I ignore the caliber altogether and go with the most quality overall rifle?
I'm leaning toward the last option, which leads me to the question...which is the overall best rifle? Is one of these rifles "easier" to work on by a gunsmith in the event I want to use it as a base to build upon?
Thanks in advance for any input/advice you can give.
