Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

If I was target shooting I'd go the 6.5/284 but
for Hunting I'd go with a 35 Whelen

    Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

    I currently have a sendero in 7mmRM that does all I need in my neck of the woods and I like the envelope that it delivers. So when it will no longer maintain its accuracy (which at the current rate I'm getting to shoot it will be much too long), I plan to rebarrel to 7 wsm, basicly the same ballistics in a no belt case, I hope by then maybe lapua or nosler will be building good brass for it.

    None of the above calibers- I'd go with a .308 every time. I have a HUGE supply of Lake City Match ammo, plus brass, I can buy my 168 grain Sierra MK bullets by the 1000 at Camp Perry, and I have a custom BDC built by Leupold on my Vari-X III in 4.5X14X40. I'm good for 100 yards to 1000 yards. I just bought a TC ICON in .308, and it shoots under .50" at 100 yards. I shot it once at a nice buck in Alabama this January at 217 yards. He was deader than John Wayne Gacy's paperboy. I still have a Ruger 77V in .308, but with its massive barrel, it's like lugging an anvil around the woods. Here's a picture of the gun and the buck:

    I would build a .338 Norma with the following components:

    Badger Ordnance Receiver

    Badger Ordnance Bottom Metal (5 round detachable magazine)

    Jewel Trigger

    AI or McMillan Stock with side mounted Flush Cups

    21" 9.5 twist #7 fluted Krieger, Broughton or Schnieder barrel. Preferably in Chrome Molly Steel

    Badger FTE Muzzle Break or Silencer

    Night Force 3.5 - 15 X 50 NXS Scope

    338/375 Ruger was not a choice so I clicked 338 LAP
