Mine has to be my Winchester Model 94 in 25-35. Made in 1927 it was a gift from my Dad and exactly like the one my Grandfather hunted with until he passed away in 1967. My cousin ended up with that one but mine is a twin to it. I haven't killed anything with it yet.........but I will! I hunt Blacktails in the thick brush here in western Washington where shots are seldom over 50 yards and the 25-35 with a Lyman peep works just fine.
My fav is my Ruger M77 in the .220 Swift. I had a BSA Panther 3-10X44 on it, and that was THE BEST money I spent on optics. (A svelt $129) The setup would drive tacks all day long at 100 or 200 yards. I've laid down coyotes out to 360 yards, always with one shot. Now it has a Nikon Monarch 6-24X50 with the BDC on it now, and I've increase my comfortable shooting range to 550 yards. The BDC is awesome. The circles range out to 800 yards with my current loads, but I haven't tried it yet. Hope too soon. It isn't anything pretty, but it'll get the job done every time.
i have too amny favorites....lets start with my AR10 .308 with match barrel and floating sotck with 4x16x50mm smithfield generation II scope for elk and deer, before that i used a hand me down .308 savage 99E lever action. For varmints a .223 WSSM Browning A-bolt.
My Winchester Model 70 in 25-06 w/ Leupold 3x9 for me. The first time I shot it I killed my first buck back in 1982 when I was 12. The last time I shot it was last September. Thats when I killed my Bighorn ram with it. May not be the most vauble rifle a guy could own or the best shooting on the market, but i will never part ways with my Ol' 25-06.
