Great pic, Tiki. Ol Smelly was the first 'high powered' rifle with which I became acquainted as a kid and I still have a soft spot for them. In later years, I worked with an old gent who had been stationed along the Burma Road. Ray's accounts of the 'Weekend R&R Tiger Hunts', held by GI's and Brits, surprised me when he added that the .303 was the preferred rifle for those forays.
I'm with Art; I'd like to know where I'm going to be roughing it with a rifle on my back. Short of warding off giant maneaters or 600 yard rifle duels, I'd probably take my Ruger 580 Ranch Rifle
in .223 Remington. It's proven to be 'minute of soda can' to 200 yards and it's fed everything I've thrown at it.
