    So the question is SPECIFICALLY, if you had to start all over with currently having no big game rifles, in which of these cartridges would you chamber your next big game rifle?
    Probably a 300 wsm or a 7 mm

    Recently completed building a 6.5 Grendel AR and accuracy tuning a WHBY MKV 223 (A gift from a friend I introduced to hunting and shooting).

    The 6.5 is an excellent caliber and It replaced a 5.56 carbine, 5.56 DCM Match AR, and a 223 Varminter AR. What the 223/5,56 lacked, the 6.5 Grendel more than adequately make's up for. I will be building a 16" carbine in a couple of months.

    I just finished tuning the factory trigger, and installed Burris 2-piece tactical bases (20)MOA, with NF rings. Topped off with a Vortex PST 2.5-10x44 scope. I sighted it in yesterday at 200 yards. Then I confirmed come ups to 600 yds.

    Been considering building a 338 RUM on a RemLA. However, I'm waiting for the results on some develops my gunsmith is working on.

    Brno I'm curious. I have friends and clients in SA and for most of the plains game they are shooting 6.5 swede's.

    Is your next rifle going to be strictly something for large/dangerous game or???

    What caliber?

    Mines not on here. It's a 338 Norma mag and should be complete in about 2 weeks or less.
