I think if I lived in the mainland I’d be right there with you. Because it’s likely I’ll live in hawaii until I die, I just can’t commit to the cost of a new rifle right now - I do like two big hunting trips a year, but that’s a lot less than I would be hunting if I still lived in Idaho. So that would be a lot of money and more importantly, time building a new dope card and then shooting enough to keep the entire thing in my head.I'm all in on your results.
I bypassed 300 WM and went directly to 338 Lapua.
I’d rather get / load more ammo, get another Tangent / piece of gucci glass or go on more hunting trips.
That being said, a lightweight .338 Lapua or Norma - probably Lapua for brass availability - is still on my list somewhere.
