I thought some over the weekend about what gun I'd like to get next. But remember, this is thinking, not buying.
I'd probably shop for a used bolt-action in .308. Scoped, with studs for sling swivels. I'd be shooting paper and steel, at distances from 100 yards to 400 - 600 yards.
Wooden stock preferred, just because I like wood more than I like a synthetic stock, but that's not a deal breaker.
Heavy barrel? Varmint contour? Sporter? Depends on what I find out on the web. If necessary, I can put together something to counter any barrel whip that might exist.
