Which ever strikes my fancy that day really. Of late though my go to has been Remington R-15 (their AR-15) in 30 RemingtonAR. It's by far the best 30 caliber round in the AR-15. Ballistics wise it's between a 30-30 and a 300 Savage.

I guess it'll be sticking with the ole Winchester 94 in 32 spl. Caliber.

Its been awhile since its killed anything. So now is a good time to start.

Always reliable for me. No scope.

Just bought the Savage 350 Legend. Iowa limits you to shotgun (slugs) or straight wall cartridges.

Moosetrot and white marlin my first gun was a model 600 in 308 and I have kicked myself everytime I think about the fact I traded it. I still love short guns. I now shoot a Tikka T3 in a 270WSM if my wife won't let me have the Remington model 722 in the 257 Roberts caliber.

This is one that Iím slightly curious about. Iíve found no real world experience with this other than gun ďgurusĒ singing its praises but no one thatís actually used it has stepped forward. Itís a new round obviously so Iím curious as to how it really performs. Keep us posted if you donít mind. Seems as though itís got some promise given itís niche area itís trying to occupy.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

I understand....can't tell you how many times guys came up to me wanting to buy it. My Dad bought two of them (nearly identical, but one didn't have the ventilated rib) in the 60's. My first 5 or 6 years of hunting, Dad and I both used those little 600's. They make a distinctive, helluva "CRAAAAAAAACK!" when they go off. He later started using his Dad's '06.

but this one will never be for sale, as long as I live...too many memories!

Remington 700 Classic 8mm Rem Mag.
Remington 700 North American Custom 8mm Rem Mag. SS
Remington 700 BDL 8mm Rem Mag.

My dad started using the 8mm Rem Mag back when it came out in 1977. I remember tagging along with him in 1978 and seeing him really wallop a deer with it. Years later for my 18th birthday my dad gave me his rifle. I hunted with it for a few years and managed to keep it in very good condition. When Remington released the classic in 8mm Mag in 1998 I bought one and replaced the wood stock with an HS Precision synthetic stock. It is well traveled taking many WV deer, Maine black bear, Maine Moose, Colorado Elk, Quebec Caribou, South Dakota Buffalo, and several Georgia hogs. It fits me perfectly and points like an extension of my arm.

Eventually I want to pick up a 700 280 Mountain DM from the late 80ís early 90ís as I have always liked them.

I have a Rem 700BDL LH in 270, but the last few years I have returned to a Rem 760 BDL LH, I ordered when I was in high school. I paid $250 for it that I earned selling crawdads. Shoot 165gr corelocks. Must be getting older, good memories are more important than getting a deer. Not saying I don't plan on getting a deer and still get serious about it. Might try a Ruger Blackhawk in 30 cal.carbine during the late alternate weapons season.

I just took mine out of the cabinet tonight. Early 80s model .243. It's going to the woods tomorrow. Most likely a deer is coming home. I have filled 26 tags with this gun, and several that others claimed they shot and I let slide. My father put many deer in the freezer with it too. It has multiple kills beyond 300yds, at least 3 beyond 400yds, and 1 at 550yds. It's best day in the woods was 4 deer with 4 shots, should have been 5, but had a bad primer not fire.


I pitty the deer tomorrow.

Looks just like my dads 243. I wonder if they made them with a darker wood stock?

There are several colors.

Most of the .243 I've seen have looked like this. I had a 22-250 that was really dark, that gun had an unfortunate accident and we parted ways. My .44 mag is darker. The others we have, and have had are all light colored.
