I have a Savage 111 in .30-06, 22" sporter barrel. I know that I want to upgrade, but still trying to decide on what to do. I know I want to put a heavier barrel on the rifle, so a caliber change won't make any $ difference. I'll also be changing the stock (to a Manners or McMillian), and getting higher mag glass. SWFA SS 6x42 mounted now.
I live in South Carolina, so the majority of my hunting will be southern sized deer. We do have a large cut over on our lease where long range shots would be required.
SO, I'm open to suggestions. I'd love a .338 of some flavor, but that would be waaay over kill for the deer here, and I don't want to spend all my money on ammo ;-)
I've been doing a lot of reading, and will be doing a bunch more, but thought I would at least start a conversation.
