What Would You Do??

9 posts in this topic

I have been looking at increasing the caliber of the rifle I use for whitetail. I currently shoot a semi auto Remington .243. I have a chance to trade with someone for a Savage .300 Win Mag. It has composite stock and is a bolt action. The same guy would trade me a Semi Auto Remington .270. It has a wood stock. All three guns are in good shape and have been well cared for. I need some outside input to make my decision. Thanks for the help.

That .300 Win Mag Savage bolt is going to have More recoil

(Kick) than you might care for??

That .300 is Elk, Bear and Moose Medicine.

That Semi Auto .270 would make a Great deer killer!

i'd take the 300. i myself am a firm believer in bolt actions. there isn't a more reliable action out there as far as i am concerned.

I wouldnt trade, I would just try to buy the gun outright! I dont sell guns, just buy more!

can't argue with that idea. fiances' mom keeps complaining that guns "get naughty" and reproduce in the gun cabinets, as they are always bought under the radar!

I am not a fan of auto loaders. If you are hard set on trading, I would look at the .300.

Personaly, I would keep the .243. If you are just boored with it, try an upgrade. New Stock? Scope???

I got to agree with you, just my .02 but it has to be a bolt action. But if you have to trade go with the .270, flat shooting gun, great for deer hunting and I even know guys that love them for fox and yote hunting.

Thanks for all the responses. I think I will be getting the .270. Hopefully I can post some pics of some nice deer this fall.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
