What rifle/maker will you be shooting this big game season?

This past July I took my .300 Weatherby Vanguard with 168 gr Barnes TTSX bullets to South Africa for a plains game hunt.  I'll be using that same combo next month for Montana elk.

Next Saturday I'll be carrying my trusty old Mark X mauser in .257 AI with 115 gr Nosler Ballistic tip bullets for eastern Montana Pronghorn antelope.  I'll also use this combo later in the season for Montana mule or whitetail bucks.

If the weather is wet and nasty on any of these hunts I'll use my stainless Rem 700 in 7 mm Rem mag with 160 gr Nosler Accubonds.

I'll also have a Wolf tag in my pocket on those hunts and any of these rifles would be good medicine for one of those nasty creatures. Big smile

I'm a one rifle kind of guy.

I'm a one rifle kind of guy.  We have several different rifles, but for hunting big game I just can't seem to grab anything other than my trusty old Remington 760 Gamemaster in 30-06.  I've been shooting this gun since I was 14 and have the confidence that it will hit exactly where I'm aiming and knockdown whatever it hits.
