    and totally went another direction from the one i was headed.:eek::D

    found this today.............

    [​IMG]

    remington model 700 sps buckmasters, with a 3x9x40 nikon prostaff scope........in 30.06 springfield.

    couldnt pass the deal up. no...it doesnt have the accu-trigger or whatever it is remington is calling it, but it should work fine as is. this is my first 30.06 as well. i added the quake sling to it when i got home, so now i gotta pick out some ammo and zero it in.

    for any of ya'll with a 30.06.....what grain bullet ya'll like using. with my old .270....it was either 130 or 150 grain.....but there are quite a few different ones for the 30.06. im thinking probably a 150 grain federal or winchester silver tip.

    I have a browning A-bolt in 30-06, and for whitetails I normally shoot a 165 grain sometimes a 180 depending on where I am hunting.

    an '06 is too similar to a .270..as far as target game animals. you would need to go bigger or smaller..in my opinion for a second rifle.

    i love mine. for ammo. i use 165 gr ballistic tips for just about everything. for elk, i knocked one down with the 180 gr ballistic tip.

    for shooting cute little clover shaped holes..165 sierra game kings. pushed with reloader 19. my rifle loves that food!

    wat?
    you douche!!! i was looking at a 700 online last week. want something w/ a lil more kick than my .270. what sucks though is hunting on base here, you cant shoot a rifle, only a shotty or a bow. got both, but i'd rather shoot a rifle. got a leupold 3x9x50 on the .270:drool: great scope, eventhough it's almost 10-12 years old.

    nice rifle will, i have an 700 SPS in .308 and it's a great rifle. i kind of wish i had either gotten a .270 or a .30-06 now though. i didn't do enough research before i jumped on the .308 but o well, maybe i'll find someone who wants to buy it or i'll just have to buy another gun...

    Sucks that I can't use one of these for deer season up here in VA, or I would have one in the safe by now!
