Well, it looks like I'm after another rifle. This one will be a target rifle only at this point. I'm thinking about a .300 WM, but I haven't decided for sure. I'm looking to take this one over 1000m. Hopefully a good bit over that.
What do you like?

.338 lapua is pretty good at long range. It has a bit of a kick to it but if you can handle the recoil it would serve you well. I have been doing a lot of research on Surgeon rifles. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

DB,
Have you taken a look at the SRS (Stealth Recon Scout)

Can do it all, I only dream of owning something like that. grin I read a test done here on one last year, they are out of my price range though.



Here's another one!

I thought about a .338LM, and it's probably number 2 on my list. The thing holding me back on that is the cost to shoot it. Even reloading you are looking at about $2-3 a round. Let's face it, you aren't out plinking with a rifle like that. Every shot should have a purpose. Still, that's on my short list.

I do think I'll be using a Surgeon action though. I've been very impressed with them the little I've used them. They are the very definition of smooth.

I haven't looked at the SRS yet. I'll do a bit of research on them.

Well, looks like I'm going with the .300WM. I ordered a stock for it today. Now the wait begins.

...a wait till you see the whites of their eyes kinda guy. smile

I, too, will never part with my .22.

The Lapua BC is a bit better than the 300...

I have a CZ bolt action .22 that I wouldn't part with as well.

My favorite, particularly around here is my .22M Winchester lever. That extra power just makes the difference and gives a little extra distance without paying the earth for ammo.

Also a little Henry .22 with a red dot scope, its also a handy little rifle.

Up in the north west, its my .308 by a country mile. grin
