    I saw one of these in Cabela's...gave it heavy consideration.
    Great caliber and beautiful rifle.

    This has to be my new Royal Ultramark in .257 Weatherby.
    Got it last spring and will be taking it hunting in October for mule deer. The .257 is already my favorite cartridge on everything up to elk. I have shot one for a few years now

    Great replies, and some fine looking rifles for sure. I've had my Winchester M70 EW for less than a year, but it just seems to fit me, which gives me a lot of confidence. Another M70 in .375 is on the shortlist for my next African trip. If they built an EW in 6.5x55, I'd swap my T3X without a second thought.

    That is an easy question for me. My dad gave me a Remington 700, 243 when I was eleven years old. It was my first deer rifle. At some point in its life it had a beautiful
    Walnut stock, but not now. The bluing leaves much to be desired as well. It was given to me topped with a Redfield tracker scope and that's still what it wears today.
    It is in the corner next to our garage door ready to be picked up at a moments notice. Now I'm not bragging but I don't know how many deer and coyote, fox and ground hog
    that rifle has killed. Never kept count. I wouldn't take ten thousand dollars for that rifle!! My son doesn't hunt and my daughter will only turkey hunt with me so
    maybe a grandchild?
