Coming to a gun vault near me….Stiller TAC action in caliber
7mm-08 with a Brux #3 taper stainless barrel and Jewel trigger
in a brn laminated Stockies stock and a 6.5-18 Zeiss on top
So with all that out of the way...what caliber from 22 to under .30 do I need or should have? Health prevents me from an African safari or a mountainous Elk hunt....but I can sit and shoot gophers and such all day long...*S*
Ya need a good 222 rem, maybe build a look a like to a rem 40x? It was the benchrest cartridge of choice before the 6ppc. It also shot the smallest 5 shot group ever, .009" CTC at 100 yards shot by a McMillan (forgot the first name). That or a 6.5x47 Lapua.

I love my 204 Ruger. I shoot it more then my 22-250 anymore. That seems like it would fit in your rotation nicely.
Ive been thinking about one of those. Made on say a Model 7 action??shorter ( maybe 20") barrel.....thin..whispy sort of stick. Premium trigger in it and may even keep or make it as an ADL model ( no bottom metal at all)....The idea lingers in my pea brain!
