I'd have to invite you up for a combo Whitetail/ Waterfowl hunt then. You could also enter the Moose lottery. Maybe some black bear? One of the great parts about NH, All those seasons do coincide. Then there is upland birds. I always love peoples faces the 1st time they see a bull Moose that is about 7 feet at the shoulder. They are not that tough, but they are big!! 800-1200 pounds. Your .308 would be enough.

Sure they get up to 1500 pounds, but I did not want to really scare him. The NH State record was 775lb dressed. Something like a 63" rack. 5.25 feet. When it comes to moose, rack size wins.

I really enjoy waterfowl, very relaxing, have a cup of coffee next to the river, watch the sun rise. Nothing not to love. Hunting geese in cut corn fields is fun also. They come in 50+ at a time. Ok time for the bolt action again!!!

New here, this is my second post.

I read the first 7 pages of this thread and saw no mention of the Texas Warehouse. Take a look here;

http://www.angelfire.com/ma3/max357/houston.html

I have found great information about bolt rifle accuracy in that very long read.

As to bolt guns, my first purchase at age 18 was a Interarms Mark X 30.05 commercial Mauser 98 action. Beautiful, accurate gun. Had to sell it years ago for financial reasons. Wish I had it back.

I have my F-I-L's 1903A3 that he customized. Beautiful, accurate enough to kill deer.

And I just finished a Mark X 30.06 conversion to a 25.06 for my father. Getting the old barrel out was a serious struggle. Sounded like a .22 pistol when it broke loose. Made for the Mississippi Delta so ulitarian with composite stock and parkerized metal. It shoots better than I do. 1/2" at 100 yards with 5 shots.

Also have a 6.5mm Dutch M95 carbine that is smooth as glass. Need to form up some .303 Brit cases to fit it.

I found this for cheap ($65 plus shipping) (have not bought it yet, wanted second opinions first). Its a late war Type 99 Arisaka barreled action. Not much history left on it, so I would not have a problem customizing it. Of course, since it's a late war model, it's a little rough. Would it be worth the time and effort to clean it up (make it less rough), rebarrel it, put a Timney trigger on it, ect? Basically make it into a nice little hunting/target rifle.

^Never mind on this. I found a WWII era German K98 barreled action for $140, so I bought it. It needs a trigger (was going to replace that anyways), and a bolt (can find good deals on those on ebay).

I plan on rechambering/rebarreling it anyways, so I could probably sell the barrel and get most of that money back.
