Cool rifles. Never shot one, but lusted after one in HS. What calibre would you want?

i was thinking 44. i have a 30-06 remington. my neighbor swears by his 30-30, says it will put anything down at not long distances. something about the crack of a 44 though

Re: Timber Scout

30-30 without a scope. Get one without a rail Bubba, you already have a scoped 30-06 for your long range stuff.

.45-70 Gov't (in a lever action) would be kinda cool too.

Why not the scope though? Well, let me ask this Bubba? What kind of distances do you want to be accurate to w/ this thing?

Re: Timber Scout

Never owned a lever action, would someday like to have an old one for S&G's. Wouldn't mind one of these in 357 Mag. http://www.winchesterguns.com/prodin...d=103&cat=003C

That's how it was for me back east, nothing over 100 yards, so I used my 12ga with Brenneke SuperSabot Slugs.

Then I would go for the calibre that has the flatest tragectory. I don't know, but I would think that at 100 yrds, that would rule out the .44.
