Not always true, barrel harmonics can give you the same POI with different weight/speed bullets at a given range. My 30-06 impact the same point with both 150gr TTSXs at 3040fps and 165gr BTSP at...

6.5x55 is great if you handload, if not I would go with the 6.5 Creedmore. The 25-06 is a great yote-deer gun but not a great LR target cartridge, .257 cal bullets lack the crazy high BC that 6.5s...

Barrel wear is the result of highly overbore cartridges, and/or mild steel barrels. FMJ/JSP/JHP or even poly tips have nothing to do with it. Now there might be some steel core ammo that does not...

Not all of my rifles like SSTs, but for those that do shoot bug holes with them. I often go back and forth between SSTs and my other "go to" the legendary Sierra Game King. Another great up and...

I never have played with "match" bullets, but it is hard imagining anything shooting any better then my Sierra Game Kings/Pro Hunters and in some rifles my Hornady SSTs.

Yeah Ruger has been making a really good product as of late, I don't know if they are quite as accurate as the Savage but I love the Mauser style actions and their wood stocks are fantastic.

I spent three weeks hunkered down with no gas to go anywhere, no phone, no power, and taking care of some friends of mine and their three children. I was cooking whatever food we could scrounge up on...

I shoot, hunt with and reload for both the 7mm-08 and 308, a contest between them would come down to how big the game is I am hunting and at what range. For general purpose deer hunting the 7mm-08...

308, 7mm-08, 260 they are all good, that little case works well with everything from .243cal-.358 cal depending on the exact results you are looking for. IMHO the 7mm-08 and 260 have the best balance...

Cheap+accurate ammo= handloads. Sorry but there is no other answer there, every rifle is different and making your own allows you to custom tailor it to a rifle. None of my rifles shoot any factory...

The only thing I would even consider putting on a threaded 308 is a suppressor. Absolutely no way would I ever put a noise maker on a 308. Flash suppressors are completely pointless on sporting arms,...

Ruger 77 is a fine rifle, a 260 or any mid range 6.5mm is a fine in between and perfect deer rifle (as is a 25-06)

The recoil of my 308 is considerably less then my 30-06, of course my 308 likes a mild dose of Varget and 150gr while my 06 likes near max loads of IMR4350 and 165gr which makes a difference.

I had to buy a bunch of Prvi for my 6.5x55 for the brass, but what great brass it is, I have reused those 100 brass for years, did the math later and that Prvi costs me less then Norma brass does.

Find an older used one, the new ones have bad QC issues. Or just get a Savage 110 action they are every bit as good as the 700 action and just as much aftermarket.

LOL +1 My Savage does not need, suppressors, laser sights, a bipod, slide fire stock, or bayonet. Pull the trigger and it kills stuff.
