What Would You Do??

Recommended Posts

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
