I have the opportunity at a Remington 600 in 350 mag. I read some past threads and a few articles on the web about them. There is something extremely intriguing about this gun. I can't quite put my finger on it. I know for me part of it is the old timer who currently owns it. He is a dear friend and I'd count it quite an honor to own one of his firearms when he is no longer needs it. And that time is quickly approaching. I know recoil is stiff and it will likely require some additional reloading supplies and equipment... But here's my real question:
So if I do get it I wonder should I leave the gun in it's current condition (retired long ago) and leave the field work for my stainless synthetic 300 or 375 or look for opportunities to put the gun in the field?
My thought is that the gun has history but no personal memories. If I could get the gun out for a trip or two I somehow feel I would be honoring what the gun was made for, create my own memories in honor of my friend and the gun that was once his... Am I over thinking this here...?
