Ok I might not need 3 maybe just 2. Ok in reality I don't need any. In this declining economy I was able to sell my house and make a profit. I have always wanted a couple custom rifles. Well I have a couple but not up to the quality I would like I want full custom rifles. I am currently building a semi custom 338 something right now. But I don't count that in to the ones I want. I will keep that rifle and will let a couple friends borrow for hunting if needed. But the ones I want to build will be my babies. And my Son's who will be 4 in June. I have several rifles in diffrent calibers from .223 to 8mm mag. Reason I was thinking 3 rifles is one for varmint, one for med size, and a big bore for whatever. Might be able to use same rifle for varmint/med size game. As I kill yotes to kill yotes not for there fur. Well mainly kill them to help deer population out. Chucks I just turn into chunks. I hope to do alot more western hunting in the future, So Mulies, antelope, whitetail. Don't think I will ever cough up the cash to hunt any mountain goats or rams. Maybe some african exotics in TX. And while in TX may as well blast some hogs. I also plan to hunt moose,bear(black and grizzly),elk, caribou. Don't want any extream wildcat cartriges. Now I am really unfamilliar with any of the allen mags. But I thought I read that his 338 AM pushes 300 grain pills at 3200-3300 FPS? That would be ok with me for the big bore. I guess for the midle caliber I really have no preference, other than something with a good BC bullet selection, that shoots pretty flat. I would like to keep the cost of each rifle in the $3000-3500 range before scope. So I guess I just would like to get by with 2 rifles. Sugestions? Smiths?
