Didn't get my choice elk tag this year and ended up with a left over cow tag. Trying to decide what to use. I was planning on using my Model 70 Featherweight in 270 for Elk this year but maybe I should try an '06. The only '06's I have are vintage rifles, M1, M1903A3, M1917, and a real heavy Model 70 Vietnam Era clone, and of course my M1903a4. I think I'm gonna switch scopes on my 'A4. It has an old El Paso Weaver K 2.5, which would work except it's not sealed. Meaning it will probably fog. So I think I'll put on one of my Weaver hunting scopes and use it for Elk. I like and have had good luck with Hornady Inter-bonds, so I figure I'll load up some 180 IBs and take this old war horse after elk. I was going to use it for deer, but I think I'll use my '98 Krag for deer and my 'A4 for elk.
