Re: What's currently your best hunting rifle for your area?

My early Remington 700 custom kevlar stock in 280rem. I can drag it and me up and down the washes in the Mojave Nat'l preserve and still make it back to camp at the end of the day. Usually cover 7 to 12 miles according to my gps, if we're hunting the far corners of the valley.

Re: Picked up a beater

I follow... the full mag 71 is one that I'd take into weather and terrain that I won't take the carbine into. Not a beater but it won't lose any value going up the mountain.

The carbine receiver has carry wear on the bottom so it's not mint and I'd be comfortable in the woods with it.

Hey Six, my carbine is #20181 and the custom is #21956. Imagine I've got some work to do as the barrel band feels like it's welded in place. The forend feels floated though. Interesting configuration. I really like the extra rounds if things get exciting.

Heh, the carbine has more carry wear than you can see but it's nice enough that I'd want to use something else on a hard hunt.

Kind of a foul weather backup to my 71 carbine. Both made in 1941.
