Ok I can solve all your problems. Get ya a Ruger #1 220-swift (or whatever cal. you want) I have one in a 220-swift and it is awsome, and they resale prety nice I think. Or a Rem. 7mm mag. I like that one because you can kill just about anything north of the Rio Grand at just about any range. But if your a smaler feller you may wana put some lead in your pockets, and hold on, it WILL give you scope-eye in a heartbeat.
