RE: Good All Around Gun ,From Antelope To Moose

Moose aren't that tough. I'd say 7mm Rem Mag or 300 Win Mag.

RE: Which one should I buy?

I found a used S&W 686-6 with the 6" bbl today for $495. It's in great shape and hasn't been fired enough to cut the top strap at all yet. Is that a good price for this gun? Or could I find a better...

RE: 7mm & Big Game

RE: 223 or 243

Buying a new set of .243 dies won't cost that much. If you've already got a .223 and want a gun that can handle deer as well as varmints, the .243 is the only logical choice IMO.

RE: Montana Mule Deer Gun ?

Any one of those 3 will work fine. I'm partial to the 7mm Rem Mag, but I'd say take whichever gun you shoot best with, and maybe take along the gun you shoot 2nd best with as a back-up.

I'd say it's a good deal. If the scope is worth $530, and everything is new, figure $650-530= $120. And if the rings and bases are a good brand, that's at least another $40. So you're getting a brand...
