Thanks for the replies two out of two pluses is good I guess.I will not own an inaccurate rifle, thats why I traded off my last 06. While the 308 is a great chambering I prefer the 06 just because of the option of heavy bullets. 308 is maxed out at 180 I find the 06 is just getting good at 180 and still is acceptable at 150, 308 is optimized at 168 grn match bullets. I will most likely be adding that Bavairian style full stock to my safe. So much for me trying to minimize.
See a few years back we had a house fire and I lost all my rifles that were not Stainless all the blued ones were ruined due to the corrisive effects of smoke and water (under heat it becomes acid and eats steel.)
I have been replaceing them over time with the intend to make as much as possible with as few rifles as possible. So 45-70 for longer range brush and large animals (like Elk) a 44 Mag carbine shorter ranges and deer sized animals, 270 WSSM for long open shots on deer and my new 243WSSM AR for yotes, I am planning on a .223 or .204 in an Encore or somthing simalar or maybe another AR for Prarie Dog and other Varments
, and I just built an AR in 458 Socom because the round interests me
. So far I have collected two lever actions 45-70 and 44ag one Bolt action Savage 270 WSM, and two semi auto AR's 243WSSM and 458 Socom, so to round out my gun safe I really need another Bolt action
and two single shots Right?
(I hope that argument convinces my wife)
