    True, I've got a 4x4 in 338 WM and I'm actually quite inpressed with the smootness of the action.
    Unfortunately I think I have to be satisfied with it being a 1 1/2" gun.
    Still, that'll knock the spots off of Bambi.

    Well there's your problem right there...if you hunted bigger deer you could shoot sloppier rifles!

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    But bigger deer are easier to hit, that's not very sporting.

    Technically, the hardest shot would be hitting a newborn before it hits the ground. Now that's a hell of a shot.

    Get a 303, spend some time to bed the buttstock, buy ammo!
    And as always, have a nice day!

    I should have mentioned this earlier, but for me it's going to be a 308/7.62 for sure. I'm a big fan of having multiple guns at each caliber, with nothing close.

    I used to have an M1 Garand and a 30.06 Browning XBolt so I could just reload that cartridge, but when the cool 7.62 non restricted options started coming out, I switched over to 308 to reload.

    I do the same thing with my other main rounds. I have multiple options in 5.56/223, 44 Mag, 9mm, 12ga, and 22LR, but nothing outside of that.

    That allows me to have four main die setups for my Dillon, and I'm not buying anything different.

    I am tempted to have a Ross for historic value, and to enjoy the engineering of the straight pull bolt, but it would have to be converted to 308, which isn't happening.

    If anything, the only other cartridge I would consider for 30 cal is a bolt action 7.62x39 to share ammo with my crappy SKS, but I'd really prefer the performance advantage of the NATO 7.62.
    I have no signature block.
