Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

Most instances no- depending on the mag setup, I don't like it sticking out. When trying to spot and stalk, the balance point for carrying the rifle is right where the mag sticks out and it creates an awkward and uncomfortable carry position.

That said, I have a Win 88 in .308 lever action with sporter barrel and with a detachable mag that is almost flush that I love to carry. Either way works.

Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

Unless you are engaging multiple threats, the DM really has no practical advantage. It's very tacticool though and from a stand point of convenience, only slightly has an edge. Any serious long range shooter should only need one or two shots. However, if you find yourself over run by rabbid prairie dogs and making emergency reloads, that's a different story I guess.
As far as changing ammo types in a hurry, hopefully we all know that two different bullet types rarely shoot in the same place. Personally, I hunt a LOT. And I've never found myself wanting a DM or kicking myself because that trophy Sasquach got away do to my lack of a chest rig full of spare mags. LoL Just saying...

Not at all! In fact, I like the way you think. I'd say a bayonet lug, DBM, chest rig full of spare mags and a couple of hand grenades (along with body armor of course) should not only be highly suggested for any hunting situation, they should be mandatory for any long range hunter worth his salt. lol

Even hunting, I always carry a few spare DMs. If there is a Zombie uprising when we're out hunting or long range target shooting in the middle of nowhere, easier to fight my way back to the jeep with detatchable mags, even if they are only low cap.
