which gun in a 338wm

Well, I have been searching around quite abit looking for what my local guys have for sale in a 338wm.

So far I have found a:

Ruger hawkey in both synthetic and wood
Browning ABolt II
Rem XCR
Savage weather warrior

Which one of these would you choose?

I really want something in a laminate wood stock, but I can not find anything.

Thanks,

Tom

Rem XCR gets my vote. Pretty nice rifle, and most rems a shooters right out of the box.

Re: which gun in a 338wm

From your list, I'd go with the Savage all the way!

I have a couple of friends that their XCR's bolt broke off (.30-06s), one of them with only 3 rounds fired (pix below). Both were using factory ammo. It took them over 3 months to have it fixed.




Good luck!
