    I would have mentioned the TC bolt guns I learned just yesterday on a competing website that
    there has been a recall on all TC bolt action rifles(except the precision hunter) that deals
    with the safet...

    Based on my personal experience, albeit limited:30-06s, check out weatherby vanguard and
    winchester model 70. I believe both can be had in a 24" barrel in wood or synthetic stocks.
    Both offer improved...

    Howa is a very reputable rifle. You will have a difficult time finding criticism posted on a
    Howa 1500. The two stage triggers are very good. Mine breaks at around 2.5# from the factory.

    You can't go wrong with a Benelli or Beretta.

    I own 2 Icons and I think you are making a very good choice. I really like the factory features
    these rifles come with. The Icons are very well built quality products. You can easily spend
    three times...

    I've never hunted elk and doubt I ever will. When I bought my first rifle the advice I was
    hearing was the 30-06 was the do-all for big game in this country. I'm just a deer hunter. I've
    always purcha...

    First deer gun to hunt with was a Winchester model 37, 16 ga., 30 inch barrel, full choke.
    First deer kill was buckshot with a SKB model 1300, 12 ga. First rifle kill was a Winchester
    model 70 ranger ...

  • Posted in thread: Scope for howa 308 on 06-13-2013 at 08:53 PM
    My Howa varminter heavy barrel .308 uses a 4x12x50 Meopta Meopro that should run you about
    $500. It has the #4 reticle, no parallax turret. The comparable Zeiss in my collection is a
    4.5x14x44 conques...

    1. .308, 30-06, 300 wsm are the only calibers I own. I wanted to consolidate cleaning
    accesories, jigs etc. I only hunt deer and felt a 30 caliber round offered the best one-shot

  • Posted in thread: Hunting Preferences on 06-12-2013 at 02:02 PM
    I own 3 bolt action rifles chambered in .308, the last two have heavy barrels. HB rifles
    typically will be offered in a .308. If you still hunt the added weight should not be an issue
    and recoil will ...
