Pig, deer, elk, antelope, and also bear on my occasion Alaska trip
3" 12ga slug is a better option. The only way to slow a Grizzly down at close range is mass weight. Dixie makes a 1.67oz terminator. It is pretty hardcore.Not neccesarily hunting, more like protection from them because my brothers cabin is right in the middle of grizzly country. I don't believe in actually tracking down, and hunting a bear for no reason. Simply protective purposes. Guess I should have specified that.
I also have looked into building a similar rifle and in my research I found a knowledgable person who stated the 300 would have to have a barrel change around 1300 rounds at the cost of $600. This is just something to keep in mind for the extra cost and the time it will take to have it done.SubSniper91395 said:Hello, I am looking for an all-around bada** tactical rifle that I can feel confident in. I want something that can reach out and nail a 1000 yd target but also be able to be taken hunting as well. I know I'm looking at polar opposites here, but that's why I came to the gurus of FTF because you often can find me what I want or damn close to it. I already have a few things in mind. Such as building a rifle around the Rem 700 action, or going with a Savage 110 BA. I was looking at the 300 win mag or 338 Lapua (leaning more to the 300) and my price ceiling is about $2500. Help me please?
Just because I'm anti-NRA doesn't make me anti-gun, anti-American or anti-2nd amendment, just as you are most likely anti-Obama but pro-African Americans in government.Muliemaster said:AntiNRA2013, thats about a stupid screen name. Take that to the bank with. Oh an your welcome from those of us that support the NRA an its fight to protect the 2nd.
