1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    My friend is looking to buy a rifle that he intends on using exclusively for deer and coyotes. I have a Remington BDL model 700 25-06 rifle and I believe it suits that purpose as well as any could.
    He probably is open for something different as well, but wants a used rifle as cost may be a factor for him. Anything out there for sale that would work?
    Thanks Tripod.

    If you visit an auction site like GunBroker.com, you'll find hundreds of suitable rifles for sale. I've purchased numerous rifles and handguns on that site and haven't been disappointed yet. I'm quite partial to it, but I think the .25-06 may be the best caliber for the hunting you mentioned. The surging popularity of predator hunting has spawned articles in every hunting magazine out there and the .25-06 is always one of the top picks. Of course, it's a super deer cartridge, too.

    I recently put together a predator rifle for my son - a .25-06 Model 700BDL with the engraved receiver offered in 1997-2001 in a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock (tan with black spiderwebbing), a older Leupold 3.5-10x Vari-X III A.O. scope and a bipod that can be used in the sitting position. It puts five 75-grain Hornady V-Max bullets into .556" at 100 yards. The load averages 3,714fps over my chronograph and since .25-06s are REAL flat shooters, being zeroed 1/2" high at 100 yards allows you to pretty much hold right on out past 300 yards.

    Go on GunBroker, click on "rifles," "bolt action" and enter "700 25-06" (or whatever model and caliber you want) in the search field.

    As indicated the 25-06 are great. Also good is the 243 Win.
