What's missing

Post by Jon79 » 12 Feb 2019, 2:13 pm

Looking at getting another rifle, tossing up whether to double up on a calibre and upgrade or go for something different to fill a gap in what I already have :unknown:

I currently have a 22 Air rifle, 22LR, 12G, 223, 243, 308

Of you wear a pink tshirt grey a 6.5manbun or if you have rocks in your jocks get a 300wm.

If you are da boss than 338lapua and if you are the boss but someone else paying 50bmg.

I think you are pretty alright there.

Looks like you have most things covered with that lot mate. If you’re likely to hunt bigger game then go for the 300WM or something in the 338 family.
If you want something that fits in between what you have then maybe a 7.62x39 for pigs in close country, or a 6.5CM to do some distance shooting.
So much to choose from. I have a similar lineup to you and was considering a 300AAC not long ago.

No pistol-caliber lever-actions? A .357 or .44 Magnum is fun.
A selection of milsurps is always good.
And a blackpowder muzzle loader!

that's a nice spread of calibers, i suppose if your looking at another purchase, it depends on what you hunt and what your interests are , and whether or not your into reloading. the last bit about reloading is relevant to the cost of non-mainstream calibers . 22 hornet factory ammo for example, is expensive for what it is, and some ammo calibers can be hard to get in regional areas. if you hunt in scrub country, a good lever gun might be useful . for giggles a milsurp or black powder might be fun . if you range shoot maybe look into what comps they have . feild rifle, gallery rifle maybe ? hope this helps, cheers

All your current choices have been very practical and utilitarian, what you are missing is something a bit special. Something no one else has seen much less fired. My suggestions are either a Lazzeroni Warbird 7.82 or a 505 Gibbs.
