a remington out of the box is a great shooter. have a 300 wm in stainless stalker and it's been a great rifle. there within the price ranger you're considering also. shot an eland at 255, kudu at 215 w/ 180 gr barnes. neither went far.

The one that fits you.
Try different models/brands and select the one that fits you best.

Now I'll say. Could use a new trigger. And maybe 100-150 rounds and then a good cleaning to slick up the action. But if you're looking at a 270/30-06 your looking at 500-550$ and a 100-150 more for a Magnum action. I have alot of really nice rifles but for a in the field gun. And I was buying new. I would definitely consider this rifle. Problem is I've never really seen anyone who sells this rifle off the self. It would be something you would have to order through a FFL. Davidsons ect. The point I'd say is it would leave room for upgrades and you could have a nicer rifle after a little leg work
Same Action used by Whitworth dead ass reliable

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
