you cant consistantly leave at home?

Mine is a 700 Mountain rifle in 260 Rem . It has a Mcmillian swirly stock that TiminTN Pillar bedded for me along with some trigger work and Polishing the crown . Other than this its stock.
It shoots 1/2 -3/4 Moa with several load choices and the only complaint is that it heats up really quick with the small barrel at the range

Thinking about it tonight I have killed more deer with this gun that any other that I own now or have owned.

I thought once or twice about rebarreling it to something else but I probably never will.

I have 2 other rifles at present, a 7mm/300 Win Mag (7mm Claunch Magnum) and a 338-06, both customs
Both shoot farther and harder by far than the little pop gun but It seems to be my Go To Rifle

And strangly enough I have killed my two largest bucks with it even though I hunt with them all about the same amount. Including the one I shot Sat Morning

My Kimber 8400 in 270 WSM is like that. Everything I have shot with it has fell dead in its tracks.

Heavy barrel Ruger 77 in .243. It weighs a ton but when I swing it up for an offhand shot, it just seems to lock on target. A lot of my buds have made fun of me for lugging that heavy beast around all day but it's worth it when it comes time for the shot...besides, I can use the exercise. I've been using my .30-06 A-bolt more lately since the 100th aniv but I still think of the .243 as the deer rifle and it drops them in their tracks a lot more reliably than the '06.

I wish I had one of them. Instead, I have to choose from one of my Model 70's.
