    So I always go thru rifles, like a bunch. I shoot them and move them to try new stuff. However, I have one rifle that I have had now for like 5 years. It was a gift from my wife for Christmas. She is a Barrett 98b 338 lapua name Lindsay Lohan! Name is fitting cause she looks good from a little ways off but once u get close u can see she is a little dirty and well used!! What is u guys one gun, that is your go to?

    Mine is a 7.5LB dressed Kimber 8400 with a 26 Brux#3 radial braked 270WSM. She has a Leupold 3x18x44 TMOA scope and Talley light rings. Good for .5 MOA. Classic style that’s kind to the eye and a good shooter , setup with a bipod rail for an Atlas bipod.

    Remmy700, while we have a few (maybe more than a few ;)) firearms, I have only one hunting rifle.....been that way since March 1990. It’s been fed “only” Barnes X Bullets since around 1992....the bullets changed as Barnes has upgraded their bullet designs. And, has had one scope change about 5 or 6 years ago!

    Mine used to be an HS Precision take down in 270 Win.....up until I acquired an HS Precision HTR in 6.5-284 Norma. More accurate, better looking, and no recoil since it is so *Rule 4 Violation* heavy.

    Couldn't help myself , it's an exceptional rifle and it's always in the hands of my family during hunting season.

    i like my old beater Remington 700 ADL in 270. It is 20 years old, and it feels like it belongs in my hands.
