We all have had the urge to buy another rifle...

I understand completely the NEED to go out and spend some of your hard earned cash on a new blaster. The only suggestion that I have is stay with a non magnum in a quality bolt action mounting a great scope. Your current rifles in 30-06 and .243 I bet are nice and you are comfortable with them. Buying something like a new Weatherby Ultra Light in say .270 Win or 30-06 would be a very nice upgrade. This would set you back ~1200-1500 dollars, a good scope would cost another 400-500 dollars. The standard calibers in either 270 Win or 30-06 will do anything the magnums do at 300 yards. Shooting non magnums is alot more fun at the range than magnums.
