Some of the early WSM's had a little feeding trouble but I am sure thats been cleared upm as I have not heard of it much lately. My 270 WSM feeds fine.

I am a no frills gun guy so My choice would be the Remington SPS in 30-06. This one has a 24 inch barrel and the 30-06 is just all you really need for NA hunting. Its nice to have more rifles but for a single big game rifls battery, its hard to beat the 30-06. I would be just as happy with a 270 or 280.

Or he could get a Remington Model 700 CDL, which is a wood stock, in case he likes wood stocks better.

I thought about a composite stock on my gun, ut I chose a wooden, since I like those.

Another good gun would be a Remington Model 700 Mountain Rifle, good, laminate gun if you don't like it if wooden stocks chip or something, the laminate is supposed to be very durable, plus, it looks cool.
The Mountain Rifle also has a Detachable Magazine version, too, andboth versions are very light.

I have read some of the replies and didnpt see anyone comment about the triger. I have a 700 ADL in a .270 and the stock trigger is set to about 1000LBs. I had to put in a new trigger before I was happy with it. . . just something to consider. . . .

I too have an XCR Rocky Mtn Elk Foundation (RMEF) in 300 wsm. I love the gun. Is it worth the extra over an SPS ss??? ...Probably not. BUT, I liked the all camo stock and the fact that the Trynite (spelling?!?) would make the gun itself bulletproof. Great gun that will last forever in any element. The way I see it, the 300 wsm caliber is a great "all around" one I can use on deer, elk, kittens, etc. I will likely use that rifle for the rest of my life and be happy with it, so I bought what I wanted. It did needa trigger job....$35 I believe through a reputable gunsmith on Ebay and it made a world of difference in my accuracy.

One thing for certain, be sure to invest a little in the scope as well. I bought a Leupold VXII 4-12 that cost around $400. A lot of people even go more expensive. It will make a huge difference, so don't neglect the glass on top. You can get a Nikon Buckmasters 3x9 for $200, which is a decent scope. I wouldn't go below that. That rifle will only be as good as the scope you put on it, and like I said it can last the rest or your life so get what you want & keep it

I think you are making an excellent choice. The 30-06 is a great all around caliber and the XCR is a great rifle. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to get one.
