I believe you have it covered . But some fun rifles that you don't have listed are the 223 AI, 223
WSSM. 7 WSM, 7/08, A 416 for dangerous game and a 45-120 sharps for long range shooting
(600 yards +)If you have a hog problem the 450 bushmaster on an AR platform is a ball to
shoot and death on hogs.

Just a few more choices, But they are all fun.

I'm thinking of trying a ultralight in 7br. for deer hunting in Pa. Shoots 140"s out to 300 damn near the same as 257 bob and 120's with half the powder.

Re: any ideas please

For those of you that do not know “Screech” he is a very talented “Smith” who happens to be one of the very few people (5) who I would trust to build a rifle for me. I will not comment further on the “talented” description except that he has the blessing and was trained personally by one of the best builders and shooters on the planet. After discussion with my friend “Screech” was given the job to build a rifle for me using the components(Stiller action, Krieger tube, Jewell trigger, HS Stock, HS bottom metal, blank dies Kiff reamers) I supplied. Knowing that I am one of the most demanding perfectionists out there he undaunted took the task on.

As he was still in school but under the wing so to speak of the aforementioned (Screech did all of the actual work!) made a F#%$ing PERFECT 6.5 WSM for me including the dies!!!!!

“Screech” will be making another rifle for me later this year and that is about as much praise as I give anyone period. I speak with my checkbook and it only speaks to people who do impeccable work!
