.270 ruger or 30-06 interarms for the more open country, 300 savage 99 or 30-30 marlin for the thick stuff

Got a ton of shooting inbetween now and then to make up my mind!

Likely a moot point for me, about as likely to Elk Hunt as to winning the lottery, and I don't buy Lottery Tickets but there is a .300 Weatherby and a Mod 71 .348 Win. in the safe just in case.

Also a Ruger Super Redhawk .480 Ruger in case I really put the sneak on one.
I have "CDO". It is just like "OCD" except the letters are in alphabetical order LIKE THEY SHOULD BE!

Same for me...Archery in September. The new to me 280 AI that Lee built will probably get first nod. Its spitting out the 160gr Partitions and Accubonds under .5 MOA and hasnt been bloodied yet. 300 WSM Win Ex Weather will go as the back up Im sure, its rolling out the 180 Partitions just as well.

Its that time of the year,working on the out of state apps, and studying the units and odds. Sept cant get here fast enough!

If I can get the time later this year or the next, I`ll use my 338-378 Accumark w/4.5-14x40 VX3.

The new Berger 300 gr VLD hunting hybrids should be available by then. I`ll try those at around 2800-2850 fps MV.
300WSM,,,,338-378 Wby,,,,375 Ruger

Same as in years past 338 win mag and a 300 win mag as a back up or vice versa.

Tried all the newbies WSMs RUMs RSAUM and some Weatherbys, These 2 seem to work best for my type of hunting

Depends on the weather when I get up in the morning to go.
