My Rem700 in 30-06 mainly because of the wide range of bullet weight choices in facrory ammo.I normally use the 150grn because it's a little flatter shooting than the 165 and 180 but when hunting the thicker bodied animals like stag,elk or sitka deer in can go with the heavier loads.

Walk softly,keep the wind in your face and watch your backtrail

yall heard the saying "over my dead body" or "pry it outta my cold fingers" thats how it would be for me to have to just choose one of my guns.

naw if had to choose one it would be the most sentimental one i got. though i rarely ever hunt with it anymore.

marlin 30\30 limited edition model 3080

I thought this over long and hard trying to decide which one I'd keep and I've decided that I would keep the 7.62x39 Yugo. SKS,,,

with that I could easily get my other rifles back........
