You do know more is often times just more right?

Let's say you're towing your 3000 pound boat with a Dodge Ram with a Cummins and Don says to use a Peterbilt, would that mean the Dodge was minimal?


It DOES NOT MATTER to me .....but I'd take the Peterbilt grin grin

Of all the rifles that I've owned in 257 Roberts, I think that the Remington 700 MR is about as perfect a match of rifle and cartridge as you'll find in a standard production factory specs rifle. I also like the Roberts in the 700 CDL-SF, but it fits me better with a McM McMillan Hunter handle in place of the factory wood.

No pics yet, probably won't get delivery for another week or so, but I'm pumped!

Congrats on the new #1 cool Classy rifle with a classy cartridge...... this from an actual owner and user of the bob'.

Pi$$'n matches and all other pointless BS aside, I really doubt you will be let down with your choice.

Funny how that works...some don't get it.

Apparently, the latitude at which a cartridge is used has more to do with it's effectiveness than bore size, case capacity, or any other ballistic detail. That's the only explanation I can think of for why Alaskan's are able to kill large bear, moose and caribou with 223s and 243s, but as you go south in the lower 48, bigger and bigger cartridges are needed for 100 pound whitetail deer.
I am constantly amazed at the eternal hand wringing over selecting a cartridge to kill a deer or an elk. There are decades of hundreds of thousands of examples to show what doesn't work and what does work. There are dam few that don't work, given intelligent bullet selection and proper bullet placement, and dam few that will work absent either or.
