For deer drives I use a Remington 760 30-06 with a 3x9 Leupold VXII, limbsaver pad, and timney 2lb trigger kit. I use 150gr accubonds at 2900fps.
For mountain hunting I use a Browning A-bolt with 4.5x14 Leupold with the varmint hunter crosshair and CDS turret. It also has a 2lb trigger kit and Bell & Carlson aluminum bedded stock. I use 140gr accubonds at 3033fps. I've taken deer out to 403yds with it.
My deer rifle that I use most of the time is a custom 264WM. It has a M70 classic action, 2lb trigger, custom thumbhole stock, 25" McGowan barrel, and limbsaver pad. It has a Leupold 4.5x14 VH reticle scope on it now that I know how to use out to 600yds, but I have a new VX-R 4-12 CDS on order for it. I use it stand hunting or anywhere else I don't feel a long 10lb rifle is a disadvantage. I have killed deer out past 500yds with it. I use 140gr accubonds at 3000fps. It has taken a 198" gross whitetail and several others over 150", plus a 200" muley. I have lots of confidence when I grab "maggie".
Nice rifles, and you named them too, LOL kool. I named mine too, but I'm old now and keep forgetting their names. Except one and thats my home defender model 1300 , named it "Joanne" after my X wife. LOL I'll never forget that one.
