Rifles.....

Billy,

Cast bullets! I make all my handgun bullets, they are usually free. Seems like the Hornet was just made for them.

155 45gr cast bullets from a pound of wheel weights. Add a gas check, damn near free and about 4grs Unique thats it. You can load 1750 rounds from a pound of powder. $18 per pound = .01 cents per round. Maybe a penny for a gas check and whatever primers go for and there you are. I'd figure the primer cost for you but haven't bought them in years. Still have about 25,000 on hand!

I was wondering how this was going to end up.....

You can't go wrong with the 300 win mag. Enough in case you ever come up here for a visit and can be loaded lighter for smaller game.

The M-77s are pretty popular up here as well for a good soild utility rifle.

Get the 300 Win Mag if you want it. I have one and love it. Not sure why everyone gets turned off after a couple shots? I was out yesterday and popped off close to 100. My shoulder felt it a little when I left.

I shoot a 7 Mag as well, and there is not too much difference between them. Never shot a 30/06 because I didnt want to get a gun that everyone, their cousin, and their dad have. It might be "universal" but also spells vanilla and boring to me.

Dont fear the recoil as I have seen small women shoot 7 Mag, 300 Win Mag, and they never complained as much as grown men on hunting boards!
