I'd like to have a Savage Model 10 in .308. Almost bought one from my LGS for $600 but I was still financially recovering from buying a Franchi SPAS 12 and a LEO beat me to it. Haven't seen one since...

What's your next rifle?

A lever action in .357 - Rossi... 16" barrel

And a Steyr - Austria - Modelo 1912 Mauser (sporterized) chambered in 30-06...

Another bolt action, most likely another Remington 700, but this time in .243...

Something in .338 Lapua Magnum. I will also reload for this round.

Thinking about the Savage.

Well, I would love a Tikka T3 Lite in 7mm Rem Mag.

What I'm probably going to end up with is a Mossberg ATR that I am going to rebarrel and rechamber to a line of cartridges that I'm trying to develop.

My "next" rifle is actually one I've had over 30 years. New stock came in yesterday, barrelled action is due any day and scope & rings a few days later. Been kicking this project around for awhile and it's coming together.
Next time I acquire a rifle it will be a 336 in 30-30 unless I stumble across a 92 in 32-20.

Still looking for another lever action in a Henry .45LC metal frame, but if I came across a .308 that I liked, I'd pick it up.

Probably a Savage 11 Long Ranged Hunter in 300 WSM. should make for a great long ranged tack driver.

I am pretty well stocked on rifles, but if I should get another it would be a bolt action 223 to compliment my AR.

1st Garand

Most recent purchase was a CZ 455 (which shoots and looks real nicely btw). But my next purchase will be my first Garand...preferably a pretty one that shoots well!

Well I took a motorcycle ride to Clearfield PA. And ended up at Grice Gun Shop. Put money down on a Savage 112(I think that was the model) in 7mm Rem Mag. Scope and bipod already mounted. $300.
Happy fat white man dance. Lol

I'm thinking my next will be another CMP M1 Garand. I miss my Garand, It was nothing special but It was plenty accurate enough.

I'm looking to buy a .270. Haven't decided on a brand yet but I'm leaning towards a Weatherby Vanguard SII. I looked at the Ruger American but I really want a 24" barrel.

Probably a left handed Ruger GSR or perhaps a Ruger #1. I am currently into bolt rifles with open sights and there are very few on the market, especially American made.

Antelope rifle

In honor of my first Wyoming pronghorn antelope hunt, I just purchased a Winchester model 70 in 264 win mag. It is supposed to arrive next Friday and I also bought a Meopta Meopro 3X9X42 to mount.
I am really looking forward to breaking it in this weekend although the extremely hot weather is dampening my entusiasm somewhat. I guess I'll just have to take 3 or 4 rifles to the range and shoot them in relays.
Wish me luck!
