    Buck8541,

    I'm with Hilltop. Unless you're intending to hunt a whole lot of really big game, I'd consider buying a less recoiling rifle. But then again, I've never liked shooting rifles that hurt...

    Hi Mark,

    That bull came out of San Juan County, UT.

    I've heard that there are huge bulls in the county. It's altogether another concept to actually see them. There's no doubt in my mind that...

    Hi Musket Man,

    That makes perfect sense. I didn't categorize your listed cartridges by rim. Once you've pointed it out to me, it fell right in to place.

    Musket Man,

    Thank you, sir, and my enormous appreciation to your wonderful state and its wildlife professionals. There are many units in your state that hold massive bulls. The trick is drawing another tag.

    BTW,

    The bull's tongue never protruded from its mouth, which, in my experience, is an indicator of a heart-shot animal.

    I have an old hunting buddy who bought a Remington promotional rifle many years ago. That rifle didn't know that it was on the low end of the price continuum because it shot like a high end rifle.
