Been kicking around the thought of one in .280. My customs have also been Remington 700s. But I do not like the Remington extractor. If you're talking $800-$900 anyway, may as well look at Winchesters too. If you want to spend a little less, I find Rugers to be a better value in general, and plenty accurate.
I'm not sure if I've ever owned a true factory Remington... come to think of it, I guess not.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
