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

Hi Sidecar, What is a side feed rifle? The only ones I am familiar with are belt fed (they are definitely not light weight), or manual loading from the opposite side of ejection.

Thanks,

You can buy custom built rifles that side feed. My hunting partner has a Hart built, I think it's 7-08. It feed into the side of the stock, 4 rounds.

My cousin has an older Remington that feeds the same way. I don't have any but would consider that option if I wanted excess weight reduction at no cost issue. The 7-08 with a Nikon mounted loaded up is just over 6 pounds. Thats 3 bottles of bottled water or 2 bottles and a couple granola bars....

I've never been fond of high capacity magazines (I guess I have a distant relationship to Feinstein....lol) in a hunting rifle anyway. I never keep more than 3 rounds in a rifle and a couple in my pocket

I like blind magazine hunting so a detachable mag is nice, but 4 rounds available is enough for must hunts. So my blind mad win 70 is really slick and light in the field.

Lets use the correct terminology. Clips are for 40 caliber rimless revolvers and brain dead politicians.....

It's a magazine.

It begs to ask, What does getting n and out of a vehicle have to do with a single shot versus a magazine. Safety says when riding in a vehicle the rifle should be unloaded. I usually have one under the bolt and one in the magazine bu t I remove the under bolt cartridge and replace it when out of the truck.

I have used a 742 woods master for the last four years and most my hunting time is spent with my best friend trying to find a rabbit so I get in and out of vehicles a lot and I find magazines much easier to handle. that said I have little to none experience with other styles such as floor plate or tube magazine rifle( not shot .
