Just picked one up for less than 500.00 Wasn't really looking to buy one but for that price it got added to the collection. Now what do I expect from this gun if it ever does get used?
Borden811 said:It's an excellent elk/bear rifle. Using the proper bullets, you can hunt deer with it if you wish, and you won't damage much meat. But put a light for caliber ballistic tip in it, and shoot a deer in the shoulder, and you'll waste half of your meat. Recoil isn't bad, if you're used to shooting magnums, or 3.5 inch 12 gauge loads. I'd suggest against the muzzle break. Muzzle breaks are loud, and if you hunt without ear protection while using the brake, you'll be close to deaf after a few rounds.
