No, the drain tube is more like a chute and the drain is about an inch or so lower than where the powder is stored in the unit. Gravity makes the emptying process really quick. With the included...

If I could only pick one, it would be a Ruger M77 Hawkeye in 358 Win and would top it with a Leupold VX II (or 2) 3-7x33. What I like about the 358 is that it can shoot 180 grain bullets at near...

Hard to argue that the 30-06 isn't one the best all-around caliber. But, for me my choice is the 358 Win. There is a good selection hunting bullets (from 180 grain to 250 grain) and the cartridge...

I have a 300 Win Mag that would certainly work for elk out to 500 yards, but I would never take a shot at that range. My personal comfort for long range shots is about 300 yards and even closer if...

If you want scent control, light weight, warm and waterproof (or highly water resistance) I'd recommend Arctic Shield. Unless you are hunting in a warmer part of the country, they work great.

There are some great bullets out there but, it is hard to beat a Nosler Partition or Accubond. Both are proven rounds.

Personally, based on the guns you already own, if you feel you need a new rifle I'd get a .338 Win Mag. But, you already have most bases covered with the current calibers you own.
