I have been contemplating and struggling about buying a big bore rifle. What brand? What model? What caliber? Did I absolutely have to have iron sights? In the end, it needed to be stainless/synthetic or synthetic/cherakote. And I really wanted the iron sights. Ms Lana has been berating me to finally make up my mind and purchase the rifle I really want. I said I just couldn't see spending the money on the 2 choices that I preferred. She demanded I get it. I couldn't do it. I went into work today and was told about extra shifts I needed to work. Cha-ching! My answer to a guilt free purchase. I narrowed my choice down to: 1. Montana Rifle Company V2 Extreme in 375 H&H (or ruger). or..... 2. Nosler M48 Outfitter in 375ruger. I like the Nosler better, wished it came in 375 HH, but in the end I went with it in the 375 ruger. Love the looks. it feels good. love the stock paint. love the cherakote. My next dilemma is scoping it, fortunately I don't have to purchase a scope. I have 3 scopes to choose from in my home. 1. Leupold VX-L 3-10.5 x50 (currently on my 300wsm- might swap the vx6 to this rifle) 2. Leupold VX-6 3-18 x 50 (NIB I got at a steal before Christmas) Has the firedot. 3. Leupold VX-3 3.5-10 x40 (NIB I got 2 years ago for a song, even though I don't sing well) I plan to put quick release mounts on it, of course.
