    Hey ya'll,need some advice.I own a lefty browning a-bolt in 7mm weatherby,it has had bedding and action work,26 inch tube with no boss,maybe 40 rounds down the pipe.The sad thing is that is a sur nuff tack driver(3 shot groups inside a inch at 200yds)and I don't want to get rid of it,but I want a new rifle and on a budget.I was thinking on trading it for a savage10fp with a 20inch barrel,what do you guys think

    I thinks you need to sleep on it. The gun shoots inside a inch at 200 and you want to get rid of it?? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    Don't do it, you'll be sorry!

    I really don't want to but,shooting aroun the eastern shore of maryland is becomin somewhat of a chore due to the amount of housing developments popping up,and shooting that cannon is like takin a chance.I would like to keep that gun,but get one for deer/ground hogs out to 300-400 yards,I really like the savge sniper,it looks tough with that 20incher on it

    Any centerfire rifle is going to be able to send a bullet a hell of a long way if you careless or something bad happens (accidents do happen) so I woulden't be overly concrened about your caliber choice.

    Hell I'm a beliver that more guns is better.
