Hey all. I'm considering having my Remington Mountain Guide 243 re-barreled. The rifle is by far one of my favorite light weights,just not married to the chambering. So,it's off to the rifle smith for a new pipe and maybe a couple other mods. Flute the bolt. Skeletonize the handle. You know the usual stuff. Now I realize if I want to partake of the short mag kool aid I'll have to have the bolt face done. I'm cool with it and the smith is too. From Elk to Antelope. Deer east and west. Black bear too. Folks tell me 270 WSM is the one. I'm leaning a little more toward the 7mm SAUM. Then there is the 6.5 crowd. Good arguments coming from that camp as well. Lets kick it around the old wood stove a bit and see what's left at the end of the day. Any thoughts,ponderings or sugestions?
