Re: Long range hunting rifle - what do you use?
Hey! Another M98 fan! My preference has always been a custom M98, but last year I bought a Savage 10FP in .308 with the 26” barrel. Nice rifle, but yes it is heavy, especially after re-stocking it. I’m currently building a 6.5 x 284 on an FN Mauser action. This round really doesn’t carry enough energy downrange to be an effected “long range” hunting round for very large game, but it will be effective at a decent yardage. I have another FN action that may turn into a .338 Lapua or .300 RUM before all is done. What are you intending to shoot?
Attitude is EVERYTHING!
