Wanted: Elk Rifle
« on: July 01, 2019, 10:14:49 PM »
I am looking to buy a rifle for elk hunting. I want a stainless barrell and action, synthetic stock, and in caliber 300 win mag, 300 wby mag, 300 PRC, 300wsm, 300 RUM, 30 nosler, and maybe even a .338.
Thought I would check here first before I buy new. I could spend up to $1,000 for the right rifle and an additional $1,000 if it comes with the right glass.
message me with what you have and how much you want for it.

I have a leupold mark 4 that I am looking to sell. 6.5-20x50. I killed a buck at 730 yards last fall with it.

Would save some of your optics budget too. Pm me if you like.

If you are only using for elk, i recommend a big bore, if you are cross functional weapon different options. Have not had to take bulls past 300yds ever, so scope accordingly. i run 2x10 and in brush quick aim is important to me but works fine at ranges discussed. again, your decision on what and how. btw, i run a 375H&H 300gr accubonds in open and 300 gr fmj in brush (poi is consistent), guys will say "no expansion" but when you punch a pinky size hole from any direction through and through regardless of brush, who cares? have never had an issue or loss/miss. Its deadly~

I don't think it's illegal, but i don't advise it.

This is a good deal if he still has it, I was going to buy it in Aug if he still has it when I come to the wetside.
