    when i hunted them with a rifle it was with my "everything" rifle. Ruger M77 in 7 rem mag stainless and 140 gr Accubonds after switching from ballistic silvertips. love the 140 gr bullet. i killed a cow elk in December with the same bullet. what an awesome round this is on any big game i've encountered with it.

    I used a .280 rem for a while it is a great round, but just got a .270 WSM built. Shooting 140 grain accubonds and the muley I got in Wyoming this year didn't get out of bed at 200 yards. Bullet got there so fast I could see his head start to drop as the recoil set in, it was pretty cool. .270 WSM is a great cartridge for open country.

    I shoot a pre 64 model 70 in 300 ICL with 200 gr. Accubonds for big muleys and a 700 BDL in 270 with 130 gr. Accubonds for California bucks.
    Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.

    I have 4 different hunting rifles, but really only use one. I shoot a 7mm WSM loaded with 160 grain accubonds. It has shot 5 antelope, 2 deer, and 2 elk. All one shot kills.

    My custom 264 has gotten the call so far. It is a stainless Winchester M70 classic action with a Mcgowan 25" #3 fluted barrel, Wyatt extended magazine box, and a 4-12 Leupold VX-R CDS scope. I have 2 stocks for it depending on the situation. A walnut thumbhole stock for whitetail around home and flatter country, and a lighter Bell & Carlson synthetic for steeper country. It's no featherweight at 9lbs 3oz with the synthetic ready to hunt (scope,sling,ammo) but it sure shoots well and I have faith in it. I have studs for the Stoney point rapid pivot bipods on both stocks. I load 140gr accubonds at 3000fps and they perform excellent, but I am still experimenting with the 140gr Bergers looking for a load. I'm still considering buying or building a lighter rifle in 280AI for the steep country but haven't done it yet. The Kimber 84L Montana in 280AI has been tempting me.

    I have studs on all of my rifles and use the prone model RP bipod. I believe the term is: "cat's pajamas."

    For years it was a .338 if I hadn't gotten my elk yet. Then I would switch to my .257 bob. These days I find a .270 wizzum on my shoulder for everything.

    I use the same Remington 700 in .270 Win. that I use for elk. I load Barnes 130 gr. TSX or TTSX bullets for mulies, and 110 gr. bullets for the little Coues whitetails here. It has a Leupold scope on it. Used it hunting deer in MO, CO, NM and AZ. Never had any problems nor any long tracking jobs with it.
