Help me decide
So ive all of a sudden got a urge to get a new rifle even though i have a .257 weatherby that i havent even shot yet or have a scope on it lol. So im looking at something i can maybe do some long range shooting with as im gonna be sika hunting in Maryland next year and the spot i hunt has potential for a decent range shot. Right now im looking at the 260 remington in the rem 700 vtr, im open to other cartridges too but i dont want a creedmoor because all the fan boys of the round turn me off of it. Right now i have 223, 6mm rem, 257wby, 270, 280, 06, 338-06, 35 rem. So i thought something in the .264 range would make a nice addition but im open to suggestions. Probably put a redfield revolution(really like them)on it or a vortex. My other option is i have ruger 280rem, its never been really super accurate, always within 1.5-2” at 100yds but could never get it really any better. Ive toyed with the idea of getting it rebarreled into .280 Ackley Improved, as i think that round is really awesome and i can hunt just about anything with it that ill ever afford to go after lol. Let me know what you guys think.
