Ok, I know this has been a contentious topic in this forum and with alaskan hunters in general. Not that I don't think the members' opinions aren't valid and credible on the topic of the best big game rifle for alaska but they are just opinions and the rifle that is best for you isn't necessarily best for the other guy. I am preparing to buy a new rifle soon for next years' hunt and am curious about where to find the best information about rifles. Not just information you find on a manufacturers website (their firearms are the best according to them) but pertinent info like accuracy out of the box, durability, warranty, size match with weight of shooter ect.. all within a certain price range. I listen to gun talk on sundays and read guns and ammo but it seems like the advice given isn't objective, just promotion of products that advertise with them and it is hard to find info about alaska . I have found a good way to get a first hand feel for a gun is to go to the range and maybe shoot someoene elses but even then you are limited to a small range of brands and calibers. So if anyone knows of any online resources where one could find such info it would be greatly appreciated.
