GOOD POINT BUT WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE AND SHOOT THROUGH THE BRUSH AT AN ANIMAL WITH THE CHANCES THAT IT MIGHT BE WONDED AND GET AWAY? WHY NOT WAIT FOR A SOMEWHAT CLEAR SHOT.JUST AN OPINION NOT AN INSULT:smile:True, true, true. My point here: There are some calibers designed better than others for thick woods. 35 rem is much better say 50-100 yards in thick woods than a .243. If either bullet hit the vitals then the deer is most likely done. The likelyhood of the .35 getting there is higher than the .243. Again thickets or thick woods is what I refer to here.
HUNTINGMAN,I USED IT FOR AWILE SHOT A FEW DEER WITH IT BUT ITS SUCH A NICE RIFLE AND IN NEAR MINT COND I WOULD HATE TO SCRATCH IT OR FALL WITH IT.IT WAS A HAND ME DOWN FROM MY FATHER AND FROM HIS FATHER.YEARS AGO I DID A SER # CHECK AND ITS DATED 1925.VERY OLD.NOW IT SITS IN THE GUN CABINET ALL OILED UP.BUT THAT 300SAV. IS A SWEET DEER CALIBER.I HAD THOUGHT ABOUT GETTING A BALLEL MADE FOR MY TC ENCOER.I CALLED TC AND THEY DO MAKE THEM.Whitetail, you use that 300 Sav? I have one that I have used the last two years in PA. What a great deer getter that has lasted a long time. I have looked at the Remington classic in 300 and thought that might make a nice addition to the gun cabinet.
