Here in Komifornia I use a Rem. 700 270 Colorado I use Rem 700 7mm although last year in colorado I killed my first DIY wilderness back pack hunt 6point bull Elk with my 270 one shot one kill drop him in his tracks.
I ordered 2 ER Shaw rifles after reading reviews a couple of years ago. They are on a 12-15 month build cycle and they came in last year just after season ended, so the kids will be using these this year for their rifle hunting. I got them in .270 and one has a little longer barrel, but both are beautiful rifles. After breaking them in I can't find a better shooting more accurate rifle for the money I paid for these. I only shoot factory ammunition, but at 200 yards I can get 5 shots through a hole about the size of my fingernail. The bonus, if you're military they sell them at the same price they sell to a dealer and will deal directly with you on the design and features you want. Only thing I wish I had done differently, I opted for the beautiful stocks on both guns and wish I had chosen the black synthetic so I wouldn't worry about scratching them. I suppose the good news is I can always replace the stock easy enough.
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
