    Well I finally decided on what new rifle to get and put a deposit on it.....

    Remington 700SPS- in .308
    Simmons Aetec 3-10X44

    Lets see um get back up from this!!!!!

    Lay down and die mister deer......

    Went to see an old gun dealer freind and he saved me a but load, I saved enough buying the gun from him to afford the little bit better optics (I like Simmons for the money) and still have money left over......I would have payed about $200 more if I had bought the same set up at Gander Mountain.....
    I should have known, I have been buying guns from him for about 15 years and he has always done good by me.....

    Kewl, bought myself a new Browning Medallion A-Bolt in 30.06 awhile back. Almost afraid to take it into the woods. Such a purty thing and shoots just awesome. Congrats Bowman:rockon:

    last gun i bought was a reminton 700 Lss in a 300 ultra mag, topped it with a leupold vx3 4.5x14. super nice gun, shoots great for a big 30. havent got to hunt with it much due to the hoyt filling the freezer the last few years!!

    looking at 2 cals

    Well, I'm looking at two different calibers right now.... The Marlin 44 mag. lever action, and a Browning A Bolt in 325 wsm..... Now that sounds like way to much for deer to me, but I'm going bear hunting too.... Give your opinions and thoughts here.... I had a Browning A Bolt II in 270 and maybe should have just kept it..... But, I thought it might be a little weak for a bear if I mis-shoot him, and piss him off... I don't even want to think of that one....... I have also toyed with a 12ga. and use slugs.... Anyhow, let me know...

    CHEERS !!!!

    Hey BowMan, let me know how it shoots..... I'm looking at ordering a Browning A-Bolt Stainless M-1000 Eclipse in .308 and mount it with either an ATN Professional 4-12x60 in 30mm or a Leupold VX-L 4.5-14x50...... still trying to make up my mind on that one... I have about 2 weeks to decide... I'll let you all know what goes down other than my bank account..... :laugh:
