for YOUR needs, what would it be? I'm not trying to spark a huge debate here, I'm just genuinely curious what the opinions are here. I'm considering purchasing an "end-all, be-all" deer rifle after having a Ruger MKII .270 and Browning A Bolt 300 wsm stolen. I'm currently shooting a Savage axis 7mm 08, but I'm going to upgrade at some point. I've shot a wide range of deer calibers, and I'm a proponent of the lower recoil rounds. Anyway, follow this format in your answer. NO BUDGET
Mine (what I'm considering getting):
Usage: Dense hardwoods with occasional 300 yard shot across crop fields
Stock: Wood Laminate
Action/barrell: Stainless Rem 700 22"
Optics: Sightron Big Sky II or III 2.5-10x50
***I edited to say no budget, but I'm going to stay true to mine.
