Re: Just Curious! Whats everyones favorite hunting rifle?

well right now it has to be my Weatherby Mark V in 7mm STW shooting a 168 Berger at 3330fps. Scope is a Leupold 8.5x25-50. This year i killed a doe with this gun at 580 yards shot a 4.25 in group at 620. All factory just some good handloads and a steady trigger finger

Re: Just Curious! Whats everyones favorite hunting rifle?

Three way tie, between my favorite three model 70 Winchesters. 30-06 had a 3x9 Nikon now burris 3x9x40 bplex. Cause its worked on everything from age 13 till present. I just needed one that reached farther with more energy.
270wsm 4.5x14x42mm a/o bplex, shoots flat carries nice and hits hard.
300wby 4.5x14x42mm a/o bplex, does anything I ask it to within reason.
Too close to pick a favorite and way too many great memories with each to pick a favorite. First deer/bear/elk/coyote/first decent group at 500 yds etc. All in all I guess I would use the 270wsm for all round everything rifle so maybe its my favorite.

Re: Just Curious! Whats everyones favorite hunting rifle?

This might sound crazy on this sight but you have to know that I hunt in Alabama and we have thick harwood forest. I have a MOBU camo Browning BAR Short Track in 308 that is very accurate with Hornady SST 165gr ammo. It's my go to rifle when the bucks start chasing does.
I like my John Gallagher custom 25-06 and 7mm Rem. Mag for cutovers and gas lines.

Sniper2, How is the barrel holding up in that 6mm-06ai we put together. That was a few years back. Is it still shooting good? I have hardly shot mine. I forgot I even had it until you mentioned it last year.

Sniperjwt, What load you shooting in that STW? I have a mk 5 wby in 7stw I have never shot and plan to this spring. I have some loads in my other stw's but not that fast. That is a great load.

Mauser Brazilian 1908, 270 Win, first w/a 24" Douglas then after about 3500 rounds, a Lilja 27" bbl.

Fajen thumbhole stock 3-9 leuy. 140 gr Hornady BTSP @ 3200 fps.

Tons of chucks, plenty of yotes, many mule deer and one dumb moose.

It was the only rifle I had from 1966 though 2005.

No drop charts, no nothin'. We could get the job done at a right fur piece.
