Ok I am trying to make a decision on my next gun. Free fill to help, or talk about what you want next. I am torn between a .257 wby and a 45-70 gg. The 45-70 I think is more practical, but I really like the 257. My dad and brother both have one and they are very nice guns. They both fill a niche that I donít have right now, well that may not be true, but that is what I tell myself and of course my wife. They are certainly very different tools, so it is not a dilemma like 450 or 45-70; it is just which one first. The 257 seems to be a good sheep/goat gun and the 45-70 an awesome brush gun. Now I beat the brush a lot and have never hunted for sheep or goat, but I want to. I am leaning to the 45-70, but I canít shake the 257 bug.
Ok now shotguns. I really do need a new shotgun. I donít have one that is less than 60 years old. I am thinking Benelli (super nova) it is affordable and really shoulders nice for me. The 870 just does not feel right to me. These are the two I have spent the must time looking, because of price and reliability, but I know there are other good options out there. What are you guysí thoughts.
