My experience was opposite, I was stationed in Fairbanks many years ago, People came up and bought 300 win mags, saw how expensive hunting is, even for a resident, and sold those rifles CHEAP. One of my friend made a bunch of money buying and selling rifles.… allot of my military friends fortunate enough to get an assignment in the Last Frontier, I tried for decade = no luck & yes, I’m pouting !!
They all arrived w/ their lower 48 calibers in ‘06 & 300 WM mainly but most jumped to .338 WM as mentioned in numerous posts …
I used a 7mm, and I bought a 375 when I got there because the price was WAY too good to refuse.
People used 270, 308, '06, 300. A few had 338s but most of them did not really hunt.
