RE: Savage 10XGP3 22-250 w/ Scope

That's at least as much, if not more than you would pay for it new from a gun shop. Cheaper if you ordered it from walmart or a discout gun wherehouse.

RE: New .460 S+W Magnum for deer.

If and when other companies make guns chambered in the round, watch out for recoil. You said the gun didn't fit you well, but the gun is the reason the recoil "feels" like the recoil of a 44 magnum....

RE: 7MM Rem Mag

Look at his post and you'll see he in fact said 300, referring to the 300 win mag and not the 30-06. He was and is right, the 300 can/does shoot flatter and definately with more punch.

Not all deer are spooked. sometimes you have a good shot with the right rifle set up to take out a running or bounding deer.

RE: bought the savage 110

To get real technical, you measure outside to outside and subtract one caliber (in the case of the 30-06, you woulod subtract .308 inches) but it's basically the same thing. :D
