Buy the sks and don't look back.
I want one of those #400 deer as well and I am in Southern Ohio. They grow big here, but not that big.
The sks is not a legal hunting gun here and if it is where you are, then more power to you. Shoot straight and clean.
I would keep the shotty. Guns are not cars, you don't need to trade one in or sell one to get one. If you do, then keep what you got and save up for another. Just $10 or $15 a week for 'bout 20 weeks and you have both. Jmo, of course.
Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
