My Mossberg 500 with the rifled barrel. It is accurate and I cant use a rifle here in Iowa anyway.

I shoot a 7mm rem mag and I am very fond of it. I love the speed and hittin power of that rifle. I have shot a few deer and even elk from a fair distance away and still dropped em like nobodies business. I like the gun cause its very versatile i use it for all my big game hunting.

My favorite deer gun is my Winchester M70 7MM RM.

Sam I picked up anold magazine today and found a good artice with the Savage 99 250-3000. Sure sounds like a good deer gun! Too bad they don't make them anymore. The article said that they were too labor-intense, and thus unprofitable to produce, so its unlikely they will ever bring it back either!

My 30-338 with a fluted Hart barrel and a manure spreader. It truly is awsome.

sam 444. I agree with you on the WW-silver tip loads for the 250 Savage. I have a 250 Savage Bolt Action rifle. When I use factory ammo it has to be the 100 grain Silvertip they always exit adn most always plant the deer in its tracks. They only chronograph just over 2600 fps but they are deadly.
