    Wow, some great (and interesting) selections here! If I ever draw another elk tag I will likely use my old Husqvarna 640, it's built on an FN commercial action and chambered in 9,3x62. It will wear a Leupold in the lower end of the magnification spectrum probably a 1.5-5 or 2-7.

    I guess I'm reactivating an older thread. Mine is:

    Ruger M77 with the tang safety.
    Custom kevlar/graphite stock.
    Answer products slimline muzzle brake.
    Trigger work, with pull @ 3 lbs.
    Lapped scope rings.
    Leupold Vari-X III, 3.5-10 x 50 mm.
    Cheek pad.
    Limb Saver recoil pad.
    Harris bipod (sometimes).

    It prefers Federal Premium TBBC 200 grain. My best group is ~1/2" at 100 yards.

    It's taken (2) elk, (1) bear, (3) mule deer, (1) caribou, and (1) mountain goat.

    Man that is awesome. It just goes to show that you really don't need high priced guns to kill your game.

    My elk rifle is a 300 WSM
    My deer rifle is a 300 WSM
    My sheep rifle is a 300 WSM
    My bear rifle is a 300 WSM
    My antelope rifle is a 300 WSM

    I'm a strong proponent of being super familiar with one rifle and shooting it well. I missed a B&C ram and a gimme shot on a nice 6 point bull trying out new rifles. Years ago, I developed a flinch that lasted for a couple years after experimenting by hunting with a magnum that kicked like a mule. Why did it take me so long to learn to stick with one rifle that fits me, is reliable, accurate and has the recoil tamed with a good muzzle break? My personal lesson is that it is far better to have total confidence in your rifle than to have the optimum caliber for a given species.

    I like your philosophy, UH. I'm a one rifle kind of guy, mostly because what little dabbling I've done has been with bows and muzzleloaders.

    I currently shoot an older Ruger M77 (tang safety) in .30-06, 3 x 9 scoped shooting Federal Premium 180 grn. Nosler Partitions.

    I really like this thread, 'cause I've been thinking about a new "one rifle" for this new era of my life.

    I am on the other side of coin, UH,

    I have a "quiver" of rifles, and feel comfortable with all of them. I do practice often with all of them as well.

    I love to shoot!

    I do think the one-rifle-one-hunter philosophy is a good one, just not for me.

    Hope I didn't imply that I thought everyone should subscribe to that philosophy, BB, just that I do.

    Then again if I had a quiver full of rifles ... you never know!!!
