i have a 788 in 243 win. its just as old and i wouldn't give it up for the world.Stevo said:OK what about another question. I want a new rifle, my Rem 788 is over 20 years old. I use it on pigs, goats and roos. I was thiking about going up to the 3006, but reading the foriums this calibre seems not so popular everyone suggests the 308. Is this the case? Seems odd with the 3006 being a more powerful choice.
What do you use on pigs there?
