Like all serious Western Hunters, I hunt rugged and demanding terrain that takes a heavy toll on my equipment. Whether it be a trip of a lifetime to Alaska or a quick outing during Colorado’s 4th rifle hunt, my weapon of choice must be able to handle whatever nature and I throw at it. I don’t bust my ass 365 days a year to prepare myself for an opportunity just for my rifle to malfunction. There are two things that I keep in mind when choosing the rifle I will carry:
Accuracy – This goes beyond guarantees. Just because a rifle has a sub MOA or Sub ½ MOA guarantee doesn’t mean I will be able to replicate it due to trigger pull, recoil, feel of the gun, etc. This varies for everyone.
Durability – I don’t want to have to worry about babying anything I take. Whatever...
