I recently picked up a safe queen. It's a control round feed model 70 Feather Weight!
We all know what its like to shoulder a rifle that just feels perfect! Well thats this rifle.
Smitty has given praise to the .284 numerous times and even though I fight his fire with some 270 ramblings, in reallity I know he's right. I have had a few 7mm-08s in my possesion over the years but it was just never in a gun that I was in love with. Well this one is already in the lighted gun case that is in view from my recliner.
I am a one load per rifle guy. So what bullet should be my choice for hunting whitetail, boar and maybe an elk or caribou. I have bounced everything from 120 grainers up to 175 grainers around in my head and have kind of settled on 140 grainers. It's not to late to change my thinking though!
What are your experiences?
