Going to see some new country to me this year Idaho self guided hunt for Elk. I have 2 rifles I use for big game both model 70s one a .264 Win Mag in H.S Precision with leupold 3.5x10 40mm CDS with windage dial added at factory, Other is Pre 64 300 H&H with 1.75x5 Burris in original wood stock. The .264 Win Mag shoots under 2.5 inch groups at 300 yds & the 300 H&H shoots 5 inch groups at 300 yds with Nosler 180 gr Nosler Parations I believe the rifle is capable of better accuracy but it would need a better scope. I will admit I like the Model 70 XTR .264 Win Mag better. The weight difference is about 1.5 lbs. differences between the 2 rifles, I am told northern Idaho is rough country & I'm sure I will have to put on some miles & we know we hike more than we shoot. So do I rescope the 300 H&H or Just buy some .264 Nosler 140 AB ? Or 130 gr Swift AccuBond. I have no illusions of shooting beyond 800 yds & to date the longest shot I have made on a big game animal is a Antelope at just over 500 yds. It might sound funny but my Varmit rifles are Remington's & Big Game rifles are Winchester. Thanks & Good Hunting.
