Look how sexy that rifle is!
I've heard nothing but very good things about the 1500.
Another week and its gonna be in my hands. Prob another week and I will have it glass bedded and scoped...then I get to go see what she can do
I will be in it for about 1900 with rifle, scope, rings, muzzle brake and bedding job
I deleted the Howa 224 Valkyrie comment.
What scope ?
Vortex Razord HD LH the lightweight hunter 3-15
Razor....lol...not Razord...---- thumbs
First off this is only recommendations, so my first would be to go with the more energy at the farther distances and bullet selection capabilities of a 30 caliber ! Enough said !
I went through this also. I almost got a 7mm Rem mag...if you can hunt in states that dont require non-lead....you can find good bullets to load a 7 with. I went with a 300 win mag because the copper selection was the best, not because I thought it was that much better than a 7mm Rem Mag.
If I was going to push either round to the limit and hunt the biggest animals, I would go with a 300 for the bullet weights, but a 7mag will do it too.
Versatility and availability matter
I've had my fair share of factory rifles, 3 xbolts, a Tikka t3, Winchester m70, Ruger m77, 5 savage bolt actions, two Remington 700s. My all time favorite is my sendero 7mm rem mag. If I had to put it all on the line and I could only grab one of them out of the safe, it would be that sendero. Yeah it's heavy, but it's never let me down. Never let my Son down either.
That should make even the most picky shooters smile. I bought a GRS Model 10 Savage in the 6.5 and it does very well with the Norma 130 grain match loads.
