Re: horsemans mountain rifle

Yes both are sub minute guns. Lots of freebore in them but that can be dealt with

I think the Weatherby Ultra Light, with a 2.5-10x Nightforce, and velocity reticle might be your best choice.

The one piece stock of the bolt action would give me more confidence about repeatability.

Re: horsemans mountain rifle

Thanks ..I know what you mean about bolt action rifles and I own quite a few.I really trying to get away from length. A rifle like this with a 24" barrel is to long for me.The Browning has a 28"and rates low as a jack handle ,maybe too pretty.She would be the belle of the ball.I think her young, plain, smaller sister might be a better dancer ..But, where is she? Take care.

Re: horsemans mountain rifle

I own several falling and rolling block rifles, I would much prefer a 20inch barreled bolt gun to a 24in barreled falling block for a rifle than was going to get thrashed around on a horse in the mountains. I've seen several falling blocks locked up because they got a wet chamber and when fired there was not enough extraction power to pull the round I've done that with a bolt gun and you may get some pressure signs but you'll be able to extract the round and keep shooting.
Not to mention I usually want to be laying down a field of fire one a pack of predators not picking shells out of the chamber one at a time.
The up side is when you get a falling block rolled you can just order the butt stock and not replace a whole stock that will need pillars and bedded again like the bolt gun.

Re: horsemans mountain rifle

All good advice-thanks(it is so personal)I am in Canada.We cannot get any rifles /shooting supplies across the border. US customs issue, here in Canada our customs have no problem though.On another thread I have been trying to get machined copper bullets here and so far it hasn't happened.That is minor really, USA is our greatest friend .God bless .
