    For WY ‘lopes this fall - Winchester 1885 highwall .270 Win with gloss Leupold VX 3i scope, and a Weatherby Vanguard series 2 in HS Precision stock and Nikon ED Monarch 5 scope in 25-06Rem - both shooting TTSX handloads at approx. 3250fps (100 gr for .256 and 110 gr for .277).

    It was going to be a Weatherby Weathermark in .257 with a Leupold VX5 HD 2-10x42. I bought the rifle on sale over the holidays and fortunately did not mount a scope or shoot it until the draw results were posted. But when my 12 year old, left-handed son drew a tag, I had to come up with a Plan B to avoid flying with multiple rifles. So, the Weatherby is now sold and a Tikka CTR in 6.5 Creedmoor is inbound. I'm going to drop it in a Brownells chassis with an AR-style stock and that should take care of the LOP and lefty issue. I'll pick up another Weatherby eventually...

    FWIW - flying with this case (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) makes traveling with 2 scoped rifles the same effort as traveling with 1.

    Browning Xbolt in 7mm-HT. Daughter will have a .243. Both topped with Leupold VX3s. We will be pushing Barnes TSXs.

    Current plan is to use the same M700 .300 WM I've used for everything since I moved to CO 8 years ago. It loves the Hornady Superformance GMX 165. However, I inherited a barely used (maybe 2 boxes of ammo at most?) M700 in 7 RUM from a cousin that passed away last year and I'm contemplating using that instead. He bought it in 2002 but had a tragic accident soon after that kept him from ever getting to use it out West like he had intended. Sadly Remington barely supports this round anymore, but I'm thinking I'll get some of the HSM Berger 168s for it. Should be a long range laser for deer and antelope. Long-term i would really like to build this into a dedicated LR/open terrain hunting gun, would be a fun way to keep his memory alive.

    As usual, I'll give it a go with my Matthews Creed and most likely rifle hunt as I'm now on year 4 of swinging and missing with archery. If I strike out with archery, I'll be using either a Savage 30-06 topped with a Vortex or Savage .260 with a Leupold on top.

    I'm on the fence between my Ruger Gunsite Scout in .308, or my DS ARMS FAL in .308.

    Either way, .308.

    I'm a 6.5 mm .264 man myself. Have never used anything else. I'm a lefty as well. Pretty much use customized Remington 700s in 6.5-06 or the 6.5-06 Ackley Improved with Hornady 129 grain spitzers. Most critters never know what hit them.

    Got a new 6.5-06 on the way that's going to look a lot like this. Hope to fill my buck tag with it.
