300 win with noslers. Great all around gun that can make moderatly long shots.

I may go for the 300 ultra next though.

Mine was a Winchester M70 XTR in 270. It was one of the early models,1979/80 ish. I was strapped for cash in my younger days,and sold it. I have missed that rifle every season since. I've looked for another,but have yet to find one nice enough,in 270, to bring home. Oh I've had and currently have "better" rifles. But that one was special to me. I made payments on it while working in a sporting goods store part time. I've never been as proud of a rifle since. Stupid is as stupid does.

Well, I would have to say that my favorite rifle is my Weatherby Mark V Deluxe in 300Wby. This was my first rifle. My grandfather gave it to me when I was 20. I hunted with it for a couple of years, but always hated shooting it because of the recoil and the weight of the rifle. Well I sold it. It went to a good buddy of mine and took a couple of Kodiaks and Caribou up in Alaska. When my sone was born, it donned on my what a mistake I had made in selling this rifle. Not to mention that I had sold it for $250! Boy was I stupid. Well after 18 months of convincing my buddy to sell it back to me, he finally did...for $600. When the rifle showed up at my door it was one of the happiest days of my life. I can't wait to give it to my son so he can hate it. :thumb
My favorite deer rifle is my Browning A-Bolt in .243WSSM. It hasn't let me down yet!

My favorite rifle is quickly becoming my Rem 700 SPS ADL 243 Win. Havent killed a deer with it yet but killed a coyote at 350 yards and one a 460 yards with it. All of my rifles are my favorite! Ive got 3 customs a 7mm-300 Weatherby, a 270 Gibbs, and a 25 Gibbs. Killed deer with all 3 of them and elk with the 7mm-300 Weatherby. I love my Ruger Hawkeye 270 but its a little heavy for my liking with the factory hogue stock on it. So I guess my overall favorite rifle at the moment is my Rem 700 SPS stainless 300WSM. I finally got around to working up a good load for it and finally found one that will shoot between .5-.75" with 180gr Accubonds. It wears a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 BDC scope. Im going to shoot it as is for a while until I save up some money to semi-customize it.
Keep the wind in your face, hunt hard, shoot straight, kill clean.
