I searched through the archives and saw a few threads on the subject. I wanted to start a new one with a few specifics. My stepdad is moving to SC Ak from Ketchikan. He uses a .270 for deer, but that's the only rifle he has. I want to get him a rifle for moose and maybe a brownie. I was thinking 7MM Mag or 300 WSM. Recommendations? I don't want to spend too much on it and may even pick up a used one. It would be nice if it worked for sheep too.
I would also like to put a scope on it. Suggestions?
