    A backup rifle is a good idea.A backup rifle that will not do the same job that the primary
    rifle will do, and requires different ammunition is not a particularly good idea.A good backup
    rifle would b...

    I like the 300WM but my 06 can do anything my 300WM will do within 600 yards. Just my opinion
    here, the 325WSM is a WTF cartridge. I could never understand how it ever made it to market
    given the mult...

    I am a big fan of the 45-70 - but it would not be up to the task for long shots. - And a lot of
    North American hunting situations call for long shots.The .458 Winchester would be better - but
    not by a...

    I've got to agree with locutus on this one. I understand what you are saying and agree that the
    325 WSM gives you the widest range of capabilities compared to those that locutus mentioned,
    but in the ...

    When I step away from camp, you can rest assured that I will be carrying only one rifle.

    .30-06, 270, 280, 7X57, .308, 6.5x55 will all do a good job if you do yours.You probably should
    re-read the original post.

    I've been thinking about what cartridge might not just handle all North American big game
    hunting situations , but do it all well. - A cartridge for a one-gun hunter in North
    America.Several cartridge...

    It's a matter of personal taste. I certainly will not diss anybody for using open sights if
    they enjoy doing so. For me though, they are unnecessary. - I think my Marlin model 60, for
    example is a lot...

    I always remove open sights, figuring that I'm never going to use them anyway, and with the
    things gone, I can mount the scope lower. No regrets about that policy, I've never found myself
    wishing that...

    OK, I've had a few issues with Warne ring in the last 5 years. The only issue is the bolts snap
    off after a short time. They are a pita to get out. I have older sets that have never given me
    a single ...
