Re: Need some advice for new rifle

Wow. I'd say you do. Any issues? Did some take some work ( recrown, bedding etc ) to get to shot? Do any calibers seem to do better than others as far as accuracy?

Re: Need some advice for new rifle

they all shot good. remember 20 is still a small sample size. the most accurate with a factory barrel was of all things a 300 rum. the two guys with 7mm rum had to work at it a little . the most common caliber in these 20+ (7) is the 300 wm all shot good. the 7mm rem mag all did real good too. two 25-06 and a 264. good.

Although I have never shot one, I would probably agree on the RUM's. The 300 win mag is enough in my mind. Are there any other rifles out there worth looking at? In that $1000- $1500 range?
