Long long time lurker, first time poster. Getting ready to send a barreled action off to Mr. Mickey Coleman for a custom build. This will be a mid range hunting rifle. This is the plan so far. Remington 700 action blueprinted. 24 inch Douglass #4 contour stainless Barrel Action and barrel installed into a Boyd's JRS Classic Stock in pepper gray Glass bedded, and fully floated. Stock trigger adjusted to 3 pounds. Luepold 3-9x40 and leupold rings Was an ADL, but will be installing bottom metal to convert to BDL Plan to duracoat action and barrel to black Only thing I haven't settled on is caliber, and I'm kinda torn between a 30-06 on this build or a .280 Rem I love both, and have total confidence in both calibers out to 500 yrds which I plan on shooting this rifle too. If I keep it a 30-06, or decide to go .280 route I plan to shoot the Berger VLD as I keep hearing good things about this pill. I better make up my mind fast because this rifle is getting shipped out first of the week. Decisions decisions. So loaded question, which I'm sure will spark a decades old debate... How do you choose between two great rounds?
