Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

It is about half of what I saw last year for a LRH in 338LM. Since that was BEFORE Ca began registering rifles (started 1-1-14), I am not at liberty (read not stupid enough) to mention publicly if I bought it. I can say that at $650 or even $800, I would buy a 6.5-284 just cause the price is a steal and the caliber is quite intriguing. If nothing else, it would make one dandy trade for something else in the caliber you want.

The things that I have seen and heard at various LGS have included: "A .458 WM is the perfect long range rifle because it is powerful enough to shoot from ridge to ridge", "IMR 4350 has been discontinued because the manufacturer went out of business", "A Winchester Model 70 is now called the Model 60, so that 70 must be really old", "A used rifle is always better than a new one because it is broken in", etc.
You must shop at some of the same stores I do from time to time....where they get some of the counter people at these stores is beyond me.

I have always had good luck with my local Cabelas (Dundee, Michigan) but I travel a great deal for work and frequent any "local" store when on travel and they are certainly not all created equal.
