Future Short Action Rem Project
OK folks, I would like your input and suggestions.
My current go-to hunting gun is a basically stock rem 700 in 6mmRem and I absolutly love it. In fact I have loved it almost to death. It still holds .75 groups at 100 yards so it has some life left. I was considering having it made to an AI but when my smith took a look at it and it had too much throat erotion to make it worth doing.
So here's my dilema...when I'm done driving this barrel into the ground, what do I make this into? My daughter shoots a 6mmrem so convenience is a small consideration (very small). I want a caliber that I can continue shooting everything from paper and rocks to gophers to deer. The barrel conture will be at or near stock sporter weight. I have a 22-250AI so that slot if filled. I'm thinking something from .243 to <.308 caliber. I don't want a real barrel burner but I also don't shoot any one gun enough for it to be a big problem.
So let me know what your opinions are. I will consider them all but may or may not accept any, just looking for ideas and there is no better pool of knowledge than right here.
