All, I would greatly appreciate some help choosing my first hunting rifle. I will start by saying that I am very proficient with rifles but most of my shooting is either with target rifles or with black powder for hunting. This rifle with be used mainly for whitetail and hopefully some elk one day. I have decided that I want a Mauser style action and have a budget of $2500 for the rifle alone. I think I have narrowed the rifle choices down to one of the following * CZ 550 Sonoran in 7mm (Found for $2100) * Winchester Extreme Weather in 7mm (Found for $1100) * Winchester Extreme Weather in 300wsm (Found for $1000) I am a big fan of CZ pistols and the rifle seems very nice but I don't know if its a 1K nicer. I also looked at Kimbers but read that they are either great rifles or horrible rifles. There seemed to be way to many negative reviews on them and for the price I think the CZ may be a better choice. I can't seem to find much information on the CZ Sonoran but wonder if that's because their initial asking price was way to high ($3K) and that scared people off.
