    This is so true. I spend a lot if time at the range with my guns but in the end I will always get as close to a animal I'm hunting as I can. The wind has screwed me up on some coyotes in the passed and it's always a huge factor on the range and off. I've got a buddy at our local metal shop making some steel plates for me to get some long range shooting in when I get the gun back. Can't wait.

    For sure...there is no substitute for range time. That's the hardest lesson I ever learned in competition shooting. Since I saw the light many years ago, I have worn out several barrels and had to rebuild several of my competition guns. Good luck man, that is a really nice looking piece. Seems like all my great hunting rifles are on the heavy side too, but that's the price you pay to my way of thinking!

    Colorado Cowboy,

    Again, you're right on the money. There is no substitute for range time. And I agree with your great hunting rifles being heavy. I picked up a Pre-'64 Model 70 in .270 Win that I darn near bought. That rifle had to weigh 10 pounds.

    I am really reconsidering my rifle choice for my upcoming elk hunt. In Nov of '12 I had my left shoulder surgically reconstructed and my right rotator cuff repaired last January. If I can strengthen my shoulders, I'll use my 10 pound 7MM Rem Mag.

    I've had both shoulders worked on from old injuries playing college football, so I share your pain. My custom .300 Wby is pretty light for an old gun, weighs between 9 & 10 loaded. I had my smith put on a muzzle break which really helps when shooting it at the range. It screws on/off and I remove it when I hunting as it is really noisy. Don't notice the recoil when I'm hunting...too much adrenalin going.

    Sounds like one heck of a good time to me.

    My pre 64 270 weighs about 9 1/4 with a Leupold scope and no ammo.
