I've just put my variation in for a 30-06. I currently have a 243 which is a walnut and blued steel type with a fixed mag scope which is excellent on the woodland muntjac and roe that I mostly shoot. I'm getting the '06 because I want a rifle that's good for the larger deer species and boar. I also think I want an all weather type do-anything set up so am thinking probably stainless and synthetic/fibreglass. It's either that or I get another wood and blue steel type, but pillar bed it as I cannot be doing with having to re-zero after taking action out of stock for drying and cleaning. Also wondering what length barrel to go for?
Any thoughts or advice?
