    6.5 or 300 magnum

    Looking rifle for the roar. Thought I'd check what's out there before I do something rash... Wanting a hunting rifle, not a safe queen or boat anchor. Stainless synthetic. Prefer 6.5x55 as I have gear, but could do 260. Also consider any 30 cal. Magnum. Pm if you want.

    Might fit the boat anchor description with the barrel profiles I've seen?
