"Favorites" is a little hard to pin down?

A short action SS,Savage .308 with a spraybombed stock and a Loophole 3-9 along with a 5 G bucket of cast bullet,practice ammo and I'd be good for a week or so?Even though there may be some rediculously figure'd Walnut stocked and blued beauty,XYZ model hangin out in the safe.....uhhhh,I'd rather be shooting.


One day at the range..........

"Pay no attention to that guy over there with the bucket,and that POS rifle....he don't talk much"

Default RE 9.3 x 62

I have a 1939 Husqvarna 98, model 146 in 9.3 x 62 ( rechambered from 9.3 x 57). Groups 1" at 100m. They certainly knew how to make them, didn't they?

I may have my commercail 8x57 Husqvarna rebarreled to 9.3x62 soon. The rifling is getting thin, but for now it shoots fine. It is a 1955 Husqvarna 640, 1947 FN '98 receiver.

Favorite rifle is my Tikka T3 6.5x55 absolutely the most accurate rifle I have ever shot across the board. I can pick any load out of the manual put it together and expect remarkable results, almost makes me feel like I know what I am doing on that reloading bench LOL 6lbs rifle that shoots one hole at 100 yards with several loads, never seen anything like it. Bought it for stupid cheap and would not sell it for 10 grand best firearms purchase I have ever made.
Close second is my Winchester 70 Featherweight 308, fantastic rifle, very classy, more then accurate enough for any hunting, it feels like a million bucks, and I am a sucker for a Mauser style action.

My favorite rifle is my ar15. My favorite load is American eagle xm fmj. I like shooting it during the winter because it warms up quickly.

They ought to call this

"What's your favorite rifle this week?"

Right now, my Marlin .44 because

of the Black Walnut furniture. A very

comfortable, light carbine with a lot of punch.

Recoil's surprising, but not painful.

Like I said before, it is hard to pick one (or 2 or 3), but here goes. My 6.5x55 custom built on a 1909 Argentine Mauser action is hard to beat. Recoil is very mild and accuracy is sub MOA. My Husqvarna 8x57 sporter is sub MOA w/ some loads and recoil is tolerable. My most consistantly accurate is my custom Ruger #1 single shot in .225 Winchester. And recoil is almost non-existant. These are my top three for now, though that may change.

I would love to have a Ruger #1 at some point. Not sure of caliber.

A 6.5 caliber is in my future as well. Hopefully one day. Is there a particular rifle that is more accurate?

I may be wrong, but I believe that some cartridges, not necessarily calibers are just inherently accurate. The 6.5x55 is one as is the 7x57, .25-06, the .243, and the .222 Remington. Each rifle is an entity unto itself, though generally a bolt action is more accurate than most other actions; at least they can be more easily tuned and made accurate by adding an improved trigger, glass bedding the action, free floating the barrel, etc. etc. As for make, take your pick.

As for the Ruger #1, I believe that currently Ruger is only cataloging one model and caliber (that being the light weight in 7x57) and have discontinued all the others. But, there are many still on the used gun market and probably will be for some time. However, don't wait too long as they will become harder and harder to find, especially in some of the more odd ball calibers.
