Rem 700, 30.06, 4-12 scope, should serve you right for the start.

Maybe a Ruger in .338 Lapua, or one of the new cartridges, like a
.308 Marlin or a .375 Ruger.

Dude, this is a very experienced shooter, with lots of guns already, who is looking for something a bit different/unusual.

To the guy whose dad has a Charles Daly shotgun with "20 boxes through it and it still shoots great..." 20 boxes through a shotgun is NOTHING. That's only 500 rounds. If it didn't still shoot great, I'd be seriously raising some he!! with the store where I bought it and with the manufacturer. I've got a Browning Special Sporting Clays that shotmorerounds than that every month for 8 years, and still shoots great...

ShaTo: The Cabela's gift certificate sounds like a great idea. That way you can hold onto it until you save up the additional $500- $1000you would need to pickup a nice Beretta or Browning O/U 20 ga.

Well lets see,I bought the gun for him in September,our Pheasant opens in October.Two case of clay birds,a few roosters and some sharpies.Never claimed him to be a world champion shooter,or a clay bird slayer.I figured for a old guy the gun will last him the rest of his days,thanks for pointing it out ipscshooter.
Glad you like you Browning they are good guns.

Shato,
Did you check out the site or are you set on the muzzleloader???

BBJ: Sorry, the tone probably came off wrong when I typed that. I wasn't suggesting that it wasn't a good shotgun. I just thought it was way to soon for saying "He's shot 20 boxes and it still works great". That's something I would say after shooting for a long time. By saying "still" it gave me the impression that you thought thatwas a lot of rounds and you were pleased that it had lasted that long. When it's still a relatively new shotgun, I'd say "he's shot 20 boxes and he loves it." Again, sorry if I sounded harsh. I really didn't mean it that way.

9.3x62, CZ 550 either FS or American model. Great caliber and nice rifle!!!!!
I think that the Ruger No. 1 comes in that caliber.

Check out the chamberings page,it's gonna blow your mind.
Let us know.

Whoa! Those are some weird calibers there! I never knew that there was a .14 caliber rifle!!!!!
.50 Alaskan? That's crazy! The one that almost made me laugh was the .20 TNT.
I saw they didn't have the Dakota calibers. What's the big deal about the Dakota calibers? I saw that the custom rifle makers charge extra for a gun made in a Dakota caliber. Why????

BBJ
???? What site?

I told my son that I really like the looks of the TC encores, and that I was wanting a different muzzleloader. Its tough when you're trying not to give it away that you know what they are up too. Maybe, they'll figure it out. Either way I guess it doesn't matter.

What site are you talking about, It may be useful any way..

The Dakota calibers, are calibers that were created by Dakota Arms, a gun manufacturer who makes very nice rifles.
