    The Model 700 action is excellent. However, apparently its trigger ain't so good. And that is a huge concern. But I will write that the Model 700's, older ones at least, were damned good rifles with...

    southernidahohunter,

    I have yet to read a single negative comment from any poster on any Website about Tikka. Were I to want a new rifle, Tikka would probably get my first look.

    My Model 700 .270 Win is 40 years' old. Does anyone know what trigger Remington used then? I do know that I've never had any problem with that rifle. Should I put a Timney on it or stay with the...

    I keep reading excellent stuff about Tikka rifles. I do not own one. Apparently Tikka guarantees MOA. And I have read many positive things about Savage as well.

    nv-hunter,

    Congratulations! I hope you kill a monster bull.

    When I hand load, I use mostly Nosler, mostly because of Nosler's reputation and they are what I've always used. I could have very...

    I use Partitions when I hand load. Other than relying upon its reputation, there was no other reason that I've gone with Partitions. I could've easily have gone with another bonded bullet. I've...

    I've changed my mind about hunter orange. I am not so sure that deer can't see it. Even if the can, now I don't care. I do know other hunters can see it, and it's easily seen from the air. When I'm...

    Hi woodtick,

    I hope to close to within 200 yards. I cannot imagine shooting beyond 400 yards. It will be a rut hunt, so getting close will be easier, not to be confused with easy.

    I love this answer!!!

    I am no technophobe. However, some things need no replacement. All we can ask of a bullet is that it penetrate and destroy. Partitions have perfected these requirements.

    Mazz Hunter,

    Please keep in mind that the .30-30 Win has felled a lot of elk. Even the .303 British, 7x57, the .35 Rem and other such cartridges have killed everything in North America.
