RE: 243 vs 460 wby mag

You "defenders of the faith" on the 243 crack me up. Without giving credit for any of you being mentally irregular, I have to assume you just like to stir up manure. To compare the 243 to a true Big...

RE: Is savage a good gun??????????

Savage is the king of out of the box accuracy, their triggers are phenomenal, the only dept. they lack in is aesthetics. A great rifle.

RE: Remington 721 vs 700 What are the major Differences?
