And when you really need to ensure a kill no matter how bad your aim is, there is always the good old Phase Plasma Rifle.

What would be the rifle equilivent of the remington 870 express shotgun (i.e. reliable and affordable?)
Thanks
Jared Elk are thin skinned so a 270 will do the job but a 30/06 or a 7mm would get you a bit more power all three cal are great rounds and you can still have a nice deer riffle,and you can get any of these for around 400.00 bucks.A 870 will run you around 350 to 375 so there you go.

Thumbs up Huntfish

You guys joke but your not going to find a more knowledgeable guy when it comes to hunting and firearms than Russ. This guy is no BS and knows his stuff. I have known Russ since the old Bass Pro days (10+ years) and he has always been willing to spend as much time as it takes answering every question you may have. A true steward of the outdoors, he is a class act. I have mad respect for him even if he does crawl around on his belly looking for wild brookies!

Thanks for all the replies. It is down to a savage or tikka t3 light in 7mm mag. they are both about the same price in synthetic stainless. I recently moved to montana, so this gun is going to be for elk and mule deer and mabey antelope.

Tikka is made by Sako and has excellent reviews from the get go. Now don't forget about the base/ring & scope. Don't go cheap on the base/rings. Anticipate to spend as much for a scope as you do for your rifle. One word,,,,Stay away from Burris, if you ever have any problems, you now own an expensive decoration.

Suggest you just borrow or rent an old rifle from a friend. Don't worry about how heavy it is especially if you are going to one the many "elk farms". If you have a guide he can carry it for you some of the way. You can also rent a rifle from the guide and target practice or sight it in a little while you are out there.

Buying a new rifle and new case and taking it on a plane is costly and very very rough on your equipment. Leave your good rifle on your gun rack at home. You will be glad you did.
