    .30-'06 and .308.

    I had previously kicked around the same idea, i have a 300WM, 30-06, and a .308. Nice having a few rifles to shoot while they cool at the range and being able to somewhat use the same bullets but for any real hunting reason i don't think it makes sense. I always pickup the 300WM no matter...

    How much does rainfall typically effect elk in dry areas later in the year? I have a tag in a bordering unit and found a lot of elk in May on a scouting trip but am concerned if dry they will move to a different area?

    Searched through the threads on here and found this, sorry if its old. Any other options for just a standard Walnut classic style wood stock for a tikka? boyds can do custom but they are like $500. hoping to stay relatively light and beretta won't message back about them

    Elk cartridge - use what I have or new round?

    i have to agree with a few guys on here, hard to beat a classic 30cal. 308, 30-06, or 300 win. i have 1 of each. makes reloading easier as well.
