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.

    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
