Re: Hunting rifle setup?

I personally prefer a shorter barrel but that's all individual preference. Otherwise it sounds good to me.

No, I think you'd be alot better off with a 25.8in barrel.......that would make it the ULTIMATE Chuck Norris endorsed killer of anything 4 legged. You'll need to paint it with tan krylon though or it's a total wash.

Re: Hunting rifle setup?

Im just getting accurate shooting multiple loads for 30-06 and working up hotter ones at the moment along with going off of what family members said and learning from other various opinions as well. I live in ft benning which the 30-06 is plenty enough for boar and going to alaska after MI school to wainright. Ill admit that I am working my posts up. keep in mind that I am a novice shooter and learning more about hunting than just sitting on a hill or running through the woods hunting hogs to fill my freezer. Im more use to my 260rem or bolt 223 than anything.

    Do you have three threads going at once all about the same exact topic?...

    Ill give a plus on the rifle scope/setup for that matter, but I would try to eliminate multiple posts about the same topic because with one long question you can eliminate the confusion. That's all
