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

There is no simple yes or no answer to that question. It depends on what you are using the gun for. If you are stalking trophies and might only fire one or two shots in a trip then a hinged floor plate is all you need and can't be left behind or lost. If you are a pest shooter and blasting away at multiple targets by the dozens then big capacity removable mags are a must. Also Military use needs big mags and Tactical shooters Police , Snipers use mags to facilitate quick ammo type changes and reloading and it is slightly more clandestine to swap a mag than to reach up over the gun several times to feed a fixed internal mag .
If you are hunting real dangerous game then a double rifle with neither is very reliable and often used .

    I have had both and I definitely prefer a DM. I would like to put a Wyatt's extended mag box and a detachable magazine in my Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW.

    I only have one rifle with a detachable mag. The problem I have with it is I'm limited as to the overall length of the cartridge. This limits my accuracy. My best accuracy is when I get close to the lands.

    I think I'm going to try something new to me. 338RUM with Seekins 338 Lapua DBM. I will carry two different loads. The 3rnd magazine in the gun with close range loads, and a 5rnd spare with long range loads. We'll see how it balances out.
