Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

The poll needs a none of the above.

BTW - I already have a 6.5x284.

I wouldn't consider any of the others for a big game rifle. I'm not into magnums for hunting. However, I'm considering a 338 Lapua for long-range competition shooting.

My .02

Have the 300WSM, want the 6.5x284....

I think the original question was..."Have no rifles, only get to buy one"...in that case 280 AI!

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

Hoping to get a .300 RUM built by Center Shot (only about an hour away). Probably won't be for awhile because we're looking at purchasing a different/larger home and having another kid in the next year.

In the mean time, my 7mm RUM, .280, and .308 will have to do!

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

Doing 2 light weight pack around 6.5x284's and one 338edge in a heavy gun. Basically the dge is just in case something feels safe past 1k. With my stw I feel comfortable out to 1100 but I want more horsies for elk. Hoping 2011 winds down with something over 1400. well see though. always ends up me kicking up a big buck at 200yrds.
