Re: I\'m getting a new gun
My 270 is having a pressure issue to the barrel. I am sanding down a pressure spot on the 45+year old stock and will bed it as soon as my next pig hunt is over in March. I believe that my 270 would be fine for mule deer and elk, I have that much confidence in that old gun.
My boss wants me to move towards the 300RUM because he has one and I will be loading rounds for him. I just don't know that i need that much gun (Did I just say that LOL). Bass Pro has a Savage 116 FCSAK 300 win mag with a 24" barrel and a factory installed adjustable brake on a heavy fluted barrel for $429. But they also have a Remington XCR 300 win mag with ss 26" barrel that looks pretty good, too ($849).
