Need a new gun & help

Recommended Posts

I know wife will not agree that I need a new gun as I already have 31 long guns but a guy can't have too many.

I need ideas: (HELP)
The gun will be used for moose, We hunt from boats ALL the time and think a stainless would be the way to go. I have found a clip helpful in the past. I have seen the Browning with clip that attaches to a floor plate but do not know much about them, ideas. I would also like to get a much shorter 7mm than I hve now (Parker Hale 1200C).
Oh yes, I will hve to put glass on it to........

If anybody has sugguestions PLEASE I am open. I have until next fall but would like to get used to it ASAP.

Sorry I don't have any thoughts on your moose gun, just had to say Hey to a fellow Parker Hale shooter. Most of the time guys have never heard of em'. I've had a 06' for about 20 years now, darn fine weapon.

.300 Win Mag or a .338 are both very *range friendly* guns and have the power to drop any moose with a clean shot... neither one are a whole lot of fun to shoot continuosly at a target.

I no longer have a .338, the .300 I have I built myself .. I have no idea which direction to point you for a factory rifle.

For a scope I prefer adjustable 3x9... scopes too powerful are tough to get a moving (or still) target into at closer range (not all shots are 500 yards on large animals)

Rem 673 in 350 rem mag. Short,light, and will hit hard. If you reload even better. The only negative is not availabe in stainless, and has a laminated wood stock. It would still be a heck of a good choice.

Here is another vote for the .338.

Remington 700 in stainless is a nice rifle, and has the detachable clip.

I just bought a 270. Is this too light a gun if I ever decide to moose or elk hunt? Thanks!

Many elk and moose have been shot with a 270. Use good bullets such a Nosler Partitions, Barnes X bullets, Swift A-Frames, etc. I am partial to the Barnes bullets my self.

Bullet placement above all else is the key. A 270 bullet behind the shoulder and through the ribs will kill elk and moose dead all day long.

I prefer the 338 as there is a bit more mass should I hit the shoulder bones on the way in. A spooked elk can go a LONG way with a bullet in the vitals. This rifle I have shoots very well, and I do not mind the recoil.

Weatherby .340 mag! Flat and hard hitting, I would highly recommend it!

I will go and have a look at that Browning Abolt, sounds interesting as does that Remington 673. Never heard of that one YET.

I was looking at a Remington Model 7 in the new .300 ultra mag the other day, and it was one cute little package. Stainless steel and it was outfitted with a laminate thumbhole stock. It was in a Gander Mountain in the north end of the cities, I think in Columbia Heights.
The choice of scope they put on it wouldn't have been mine - but it was nifty. Just from the literature, looks like the .300 would have plenty of snort to down a bull.

my Browning a bolt stainless chambered in 300 WSM worked me this year. Nice bull in Canada on Oct 4th. Also used 270 for years and it worked just fine just got this 300 WSM so I had to try it out. Brian

I second the Browning A-bolt. I have used one for years. 280 cal absolutely love it. You can get it in synthetic stock and stainless barrel. **** fine gun.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
