Better yet is take a 50-140 Sharps and neck it to a 22 cal to shoot the 35 gr Hornady VMAX!

    Sorry meant to say speer hot core. Or use sierra gameking, that sharps necked down would be the hammer of thor. Especially with a vmax round, like being hit with grenade. Wouldn't be much left of a varmint

    Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

    Since I originally posted I was going to get a 300 WSM.. I have bought and sold a few guns. I have sold a 300 WM, a 17 Rem, a 30-06, a 270 Win, and a 308 Win. I have bought another 300 WM, a 22-250 and a 375 H&H.. WTF was I thinking?
    All of these rifles I have acquired have been tac-driving machines. Anyone know when I will be able to buy some 300 WM brass? I sold the brass I had with the 300WM I sold.. my bad! Not one of my shops has this caliber in new or once fired brass.. I have a gun without anything to shoot in it. I feel about as stupid as I ever have now.

    later Y'all.

    Hard decision!!! But I'm leaning towards a 338 EDGE or 7 Remington mag!

    Well I changed my mind I just want a gun that shoots preferably a savage LA, that some day will become a 280 AI. Out of the list I would go with a 300 WM or 300 WSM in a LA.

    Probably another 6.5 Creedmoor. That wasn't listed.
