Re: new deer rifle

hey shooter. go with the model 70 in 7mm wsm. Im a south-paw myself and just bought a classic featherweight in 7wsm. I love it and it shoots great. The browning is good, but pricey.

Re: new deer rifle

Hey what's up? My personal opinoin would be the browning. a bit more expensive but well worth it.

Re: new deer rifle

.300 wsm is good,but doesnt handle the heavier bullets well. If your hunting anything bigger than deer id get the 7mm as it can do pretty much anything the .300 will do. If your hunting is limited to whitetail size animals the .270 wsm is an awesome gun, a real flat shooter too [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
