Agreed, it has more powder capacity but her rifle is a Swedish Mauser & she has taken 25-30 deer with it and an Elk. That's what she wants to hunt with period.
So, lots of sentimental value, plus set up for hunting it works. I have 140 gr. Partition load at about 2650 in that rifle with her limit of 300 yds. & it will kill anything she hunts.
No, I am looking at getting her a RAR Creedmoor and putting a Vortex on it and she can shoot steel with me on weekends. If the need arises later for more rifle we will deal with it as it comes as I did for myself.
