    Since this site is called "Long Range Hunting" my earlier post was in reference to the way I hunt. However, if I was going to engage into battle, the a DM would be my choice. I do not hunt dangerous game and do not feel that animals are my enemy.

    each to there own etc , there is something to be said for the simplicity of a non DM system it's just for me i like the flexibility of being able to choose how to run my gun depending on the situation ? i do quite a lot of culling and a detacable mag suits me and i can also use the same gun if the range stretches out a bit ?

    i aggree animals are not enemys , lord knows i have enough of them!

    as the great winston churchill said , 'if your not upsetting people then your most likely not doing anything worth while'

    I like a DBM simple because I can set up put a mag in and shoot, then drop the mag cycle the bolt and I'm 100% safe. I don't need more capacity or to swap loads, just had a rifle that had one and really liked it and will set up my current rigs as funds allow to be DBM.

    I prefer hinged floor plate. As stated before no loss and easy unloading too.

    I love the idea of having a mag for esae of loading/unloading, but unless you go with a custom build of somekind most mags severely hamper the C.O.A.L. of ammo you hand load, wich inturn hampers bullet selection due to seating depth issues commonly associated with some very popular bullets (namely Bergers etc) your hosed if you have a clip (uness you happen to get lucky) so Ill have to stick with my hinged floor plate. Eventhough I dont shoot Bergers I like to have the ability to load long and play with seating depth.

    Another thing to forget, lose, drop, get dirty and cause problems. Not on a real hunting rifle if you cant figure out a drop plate stick to target shooting.
