With that crazy stupid ammo shortage we had not too long ago a reloading die would be the ticket for sure.
If you dont like the 30-06 noise youre really not going to like the sound and recoil of a .300 win mag. To each his/her own, but that's why they make earplugs :)
I am very fortunate to have a dealer with a range who lets me shoot everything he sells....the used versions of course, but still everything from full auto m-16s to large rifle calibers. Of course he has to be the one selling me the ammo, but hell that's only right i suppose. You know how fast you can burn a $100 dollar bill shooting full auto :)
ah,maybe it didn't come out right,i don't really mind the noise of a 30-06 unless i've been shooting a hundred or so rounds of high power with friends and my ears are starting to ring like church bells! but ears plugs are good when having a good old shoot out at the ok corral.
i went to the gun shop i got my 700 from but the nice manager i bought it from no longer works there.some new ass is the manager and did little to help.i was pissed off so i just sold him the gun back for about half what i paid for it since i see it as a better boat anchor or door stop than something i really want to shoot anymore.the manager said he'd send it to remington again to "get fixed" then he'd re-sell it.
i checked out the .270 wsm and some of the other magnums but when i realized i could get twice as many .270 win as opposed to the magnum for the money i think i'll just stay with the .270 win for now,i'd rather practice more!
well i was at the gun shop i checked out a few rifles;
savage american classic- i just didn't think i really liked the accu-trigger or as i've seen it called "the crap-u trigger" on some gun sites.
tikka t3-although its a good price and has a good rep for accuracy i couldn't get over its "cheese" factor,i thought it seemed really cheap and shitty but not to bad a lay out. plastic mag is even shittier to load fast and how longs a plastic mag release really going to last in the cold weather around here?
browning x-bolt- although a seemingly well built gun why do they put such a teeny tiny bolt handle thats super smooth and to small even in a womans hands ? although the magazine seemed nice some idiot put the tiniest little button to release it.if i'm hunting and its -30c i need to wear gloves and can't see this working out so well.
sako 85 finnlight synthetic/stainless-although after hearing about how these were blowing up for people 5 years ago because of a bad batch of barrels and guns that got recalled they don't seem to have had problems since.i really liked the smoothness, feel, trigger, magazine/ release and workmanship but not the price.i got a little windfall of money so i decided that i'd like one of these but when i told the gun shop to order me one they said i'd wait from 3 weeks to 4 months or so!! what? this gun shop is pissing me off with their poor customer service so when i go visiting my relatives for x-mas in a much bigger city i'll see if i can find one.
