I had initially said my 300 RUM....and that caliber is a beast but so is it's weight at 12 lb. Thought I was going to die on this past year's elk hunt...lugging that thing , a lot different than the 2lb recurve I had carried the years before...

And on that note ..
I have decided on the 264 win mag with a mcmillan edge fill stock barrel is a #3 fluted benchmark..
Pieces are either at the smith or enroute via UPS to my smith..

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
