I cant seem to find a rifle i fall in love with on first sight. Im looking for a trophy wife. Deer hunting in mich. 700 by 700 field surrounded by woods. It would take a tactical type stock-fluted barrel-24in. tube or more-great trigger-heavy is good not walking around with it. Mabe a 400yrd shot would be taken after practice. So even a 25 06(leaning toward) is a little overkill. (love 6.5 bc but a flat shooting over the counter round???) Kickin a** at the range a plus. Already looked at rem. and sav.
