Right now leaning toward a 338RCM but that might change by the end of the week. Looks like it's going to be on the warm side.

For me it will be a Kimber Montana in .300 WinMag topped with a Leupold VX3 in 3.5-10x. I am shooting 180 grain Winchester Power points and my boots will be on the ground in Clinton County this year.

My dad bought me my first rifle a savage model 110 in a 3006 when I was 14 and used it till I was 17. At 17 I purchased my own rifle and never carried the 06’ again. Well... this past winter I was bored so I ordered a bell and Carlson medalist stock for it and a new athlon Midas scope. I just finished a load for it shooting 165 Barnes TTSX. 1 ragged hole. So I’m excited to show my dad the facelift I gave the old girl.
