    Very interesting option here. Did they mean to put the bolt on the wrong side?

    Help w/Rifle Buy/Build

    I'm totally OK with used or piecing together a Savage build. Seems like this might be the way to go given my spec-sheet!

    Help w/Rifle Buy/Build

    This is helpful info. I wasn't aware of the Element Chassis, but that and a prefit Savage barrel would put well under $2k and leave room for the cost of an action. It'd allow me to spread the costs out some going this way too!

    Help w/Rifle Buy/Build

    Hey all, I't been a while since I looked at the market really closely, but I'm daydreaming about another rig. I've settled on 300 Win Mag to keep ammo costs down and availability up. I'd like to find something in the 8lb range with AICS mags, a good vertical grip stock (traditional or...

    SOLD/EXPIRED SOLD 5lbs Win WST Powder SW UT

    Hi All, I recently snagged 5 lbs of WST thinking it was WSF (Doh!). These are brand new, sealed canisters. I'd be happy to pass it along to someone that can use it for $180 (roughly my price after shipping/HAZMAT) or trade for TAC, CFE223, Win 231, Tite Group, H1000 or H4831SC. Pickup in St...

    New to SW Utah

    Hi All, I recently moved down to SW UT from SE WY and am finding it tough to understand exactly how to navigate the big game regulations down here. I'd be interested in hunting deer and elk this fall if I can get sorted. Bowhunting or rifle would be OK. If you have any general tips on which...

    Ultimate Budget Caliber

    Thanks for all the thoughts, fellas. For what it's worth, I do hand load and the 4 calibers I mentioned in the OP were meant to be representative of the types of cartridges one might pick for such a use case. I am looking for something that I can practice a lot with. I understand that my skills...

    Ultimate Budget Caliber

    I've always wondered if a WSM was what I was after. I've had a couple 300 Win Mags and they never really got me excited. To be honest though, I need to spend more time behind all of my rifles.
