The Perfect Long Rifle

Ok, I know this doesn't exist, but I want us to try. I think through the 6 billion years of combined experience on this board we can come up with a "perfect" rifle.

The rules of this are 1. Don't complain if your vote isn't accepted. I will have Dave delete this if it turns into a flame war and 2. Explain why you voted for what. This will help other members decide and may get more votes for our choice.

The first thing we need to decide is what caliber. Obviously I'm voting for the Lapua. I love this round for its accuracy and ballistics. I believe it combines the best of the two thing LRH search for the most.

If you don't see an obvious caliber, let me know and I'll edit the poll (if I can).

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!!!

On Saturday, I'll post the action poll.

Jim

Re: The Perfect Long Rifle

I can't edit the poll, so I'll count the no listed calibers when you post them. I know alot are missing, such as the 6.5-284 and 338/416 Imp. So don't feel bad about your favorite being left out.

Re: The Perfect Long Rifle

I'm a .338 fan, I believe it offers the best combination of killing power, retained energy, ballistics, and accuracy.

Any of the high capacity 338's will work, I voted for the 338 Ultra Mag as I think it's likely to be the commercial success of the ones listed.

Re: The Perfect Long Rifle

I go for the 7mm STW you can shoot it in a 10lbs rifle easy without a Muzzle brake and it bucks the wind just as good as the big .30's and .338's without the recoil. I also like how it retains energy at 1000+ yards.

Re: The Perfect Long Rifle

I ticked 300 Ultra because 30/378 was not listed
