  • Convince me what gun I need

    I am itching to get a new gun, just not sure what I want exactly. Here's my criteria. I'm looking for a bolt action, center fire, no bigger than .325/8mm. I already have guns in the following cartridgrs. 243win, 270wsm, .308win, 30-06, 325wsm. I've already had .338 and don't want to go any bigger than my .325. The obvious choice is something in 280/7mm caliber, but I'm also kind of intrigued by .260rem cartridge. I'm not looking for a specific weight right, I have light mountain guns already. I also don't want anything with a real short barrel. I am not brand loyal, although I am fond of Winchester and browning. I prefer stainless, but blued could work too. So what say you? Spend my money, what would you get?

      264 Winchester mag, 7mm STW. Try a good 25-06 Remington. ALL are or seem to me accurate to way out there. AS for getting, the 1 that seems to caught your interest at this time. Wish you well.

                Looks like you pretty much got it covered. Spend your money on good optics if you haven't already......

                  I agree but yet I do the same thing. If I were you I'd spend the money on ammo. I know that's not the answer you want to hear given your question so I will say I will second the 25-06.

                    Supposed to be a ton of bullet options for 7-08. I think 7-08 or .260, but man you've got everything covered.

                    Maybe the Swedes so they're at least exotic and different.

                        Since you have the 270WSM and 325WSM...why not pick up a .300WSM? It has pretty much become my "go to" rifle in the last several years.

                        Sure, it won't do anything your 30-06 won't do, but that could be said of a lot of what you've got.

                          I'd get a 6.5x55 SE/SKAN in a stainless M-70, or Sako, or Sauer, or CZ, and launch 1.4" long 140 grain bullets at 2700 fps.

                            Great choice, or perhaps 6.5 Creedmore. Ruger makes one in the American line, as a predator rifle.

                              I'd be looking at a stainless Winchester Model 70 chambered in 7mm rem. mag. Perfect timing, too, as the Hornady 162gr A-Max is back in production.
