Vince I don't own any guns right now but I am doing research trying to find the right calibre to suit my needs. I will most likely end up with one rifle in .223 Rem for targets and varmints ie. fox, rabbits and goats. Still undecided between a .243 Win and either a .308 Win or a cheap Mosin Nagant in 7.62x54R or a Mauser in 8mm as my second rifle for things like pigs and deer.
