It's a little like trying to pick a chocolate bar at 7-11. So many options. I believe .284 or .300 with mag punch but would be nice if recoil manageable. Sendero or Savage or rebarel an action? Anyone here from Canada willing to help me get a rifle at reasonable cost? I reload for my 30-06 and 308 and would be willing to reload for long-range rifle. I will be buying a chrony, leica rangefinder, spotting scope and such. I'm going to build a bench that goes in the truck and will be shooting alot this summer. Any good books on the subject? My goal is to be able to take deer/antelope 300-900 yds and moose 250-600 yds with same loads and good shot placement. Took a moose last fall with 30-06 Rem 700 with 150 gr sierra at about 400 yds standing left arm on tree brace. Had to finish him of from 75 yds as he got up on approach. Need more energy in that situation, lesson learned. Steaks and sausages sure are good. I like to stalk and hunt from close but there are times when I think I could be very effective from ontop a ridge with a picnic basket and me and my wife with spotting scopes looking for that long range opportunity. HeHeHe Also, first trip out west coming for mule deer and antelope and I want to be able to shoot long range if needed. Thanks, I plan to be a regular here now... Rene W.
