    Right at this second it would have to be my 243Ai , great ballistics low recoil and super accuracy.
    next would be old faithfull , which is a Rem700 SA blueprinted , bolt sleeved , Sako extractor , Gentery 3 position safety , Rifle Basix ERV-3 trigger and fitted with a 26" Hart barrel , oh and its chambered for 308
