It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

Blaset R8 would be up there. Easily removable and re-zeroable scope. Can drop out trigger group and magazine. Will have iron sights. Won't be cheap though.

work it backwards....
what do you want to achieve???...projectile energy
=weight/velocity
whatever you get it will need to be heavy,10lb plus to help soak up recoil
long barrel to help with velocity
the best recoil pad money can buy also to help with recoil
can you get away with stouter projectile in lighter weight...again to help with recoil
youve got suppressor sorted already,maybe add another baffle??? SS one to help it last with added powder blast
dialup scope.....with big dials and positive return to zero,so old eyes and piss poor memory dont co*k things up.
do all that and manage to shoot decent groups and then that big bull thar will be a under 250 yards and you think to self"couldve done this with old set up" Grin Grin Grin

If cost isnít too much of an issue, why not go custom and get a rifle that fits you and has the components you want? That way you get an action that suits you, a better trigger than factory options, a better and lighter stock, and a better, cut rifled barrel in whatever contour and length you want.

Kiwi Greg will no doubt be happy to help 😀

I seem to recall something on this site about it being a tad heavy and also that the trigger was not all that flash.

I think BC had one so might pay to give him a PM for his thoughts

that would be the same smiddy who is looking for reduced load data to use in it?????
Roll Eyesto basically turn it into a .308 or .30/30 for reduced recoil..............
bit like buying a farrari testicle roaster and fitting tow bar and horse float when you already have a landy parked in garage....
