I'm with Don on this one. I couldn't believe I had to get to page 5 of this post before someone mentioned the 280 Rem. Virtually the same as a 30-06 except with the 7mm bullet. I got mine at Woolworth's and have never looked back.
Mine is a 7mm Rem mag because thats the only rifle i own right now. I'm thinking about putting a muzzle break on It. My shoulder gets bruised up a bit. I bought it to impress my father. its his favorite.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
