Hahaha…wait is it cuz in this crowd 6 centerfire rifles is a depressingly low number?
. I’m only 31! I need more time (and money) to build up the inventory!
It is weird how the heart wants what the heart wants as they say. I wish mine just really wanted .308s and .223s, everything about them is easy, user friendly, inexpensive…but they just don’t do anything for me haha.
Of my rifles the 270 and .300 win are the ones that have seen the most use in the real world of hunting.
But now the 257 wby and .358 Norma hold pretty much all of my attention and plans…ever since I was like 11 or so I’ve wanted a rifle in these calibers someday. The 257 is way less practical than the .25-06…and I’ve never had the slightest interest in the .25-06. In my mind it’s the .25-ALMOST. Which I know is nonsense but it doesn’t change that I feel that way (while in the same breath bashing the 7 mag for not being that much more than my .270
). And the .358 Norma I know full well doesn’t really do anything the more common and practical .338 win or .375 hh can’t do and I plainly don’t care. Neither of those two hold the slightest appeal to me: I wanted the .358 Norma, not everyone had one, and it’s got this intangible cool factor. So when the right deal came along, I JUMPED ON IT!
