I'm pretty set on buying a new .300 WM this fall and I'm stuck on picking the rifle. I really, really like Ruger's, I've had a great run of luck with them. I was checking out some of the new Hawkeye's, but I haven't gotten to lay my grubby fingers on one yet. I've seen the capacity listed as 3 rds and 2+1...... I'm hoping the 2+1 (on some Gunbroker listings) is a misprint. It seems to me it ought to have a 3 round capacity. Can anyone verify this?
I have some buddy's with Tikka's that enjoy the rifle but I'm not overly crazy on their appearance. The Remington 700 XCR RMEF is pretty sweet looking, but it'd be my first push-feed rifle.... not that I mind, I just haven't owned one.
If the Ruger's held 3 down, I'd swing that way right now... it's not a huge difference, but I'm used to my old featherweight '06 that holds 5 in the magazine.... kinda nice.
