Does anyone have any experiance with either the rifle or the calibre?
After settling into the new place and just filing my tax return, I'm in the position where a rifle purchase may be possible within the next couple of months. I don't want to splurge too much, but I found the Remington CDL SF
for a pretty good price chambered in .260 Remington. I've read up on the cartridge and it seems that it's likely to be more than enough gun for any game I'm likely to encounter.
The price I found was $1600 at a local store. I'm figuring that I'll need about $600 for a quality scope and mounts on top of that. My tax should come back to about $1200 and I'm thinking that I'll trade my .223 to help me along. I don't really want to as it was my first rifle but the little Weatherby just won't cut it on the bigger pigs and deer that I really want to start to hunt. It'll trade for about $400 and the Leupold scope on top of it the same.. That only leaves me to front up about 200 bucks. Do you think it's worth it?
