I am going to academy tomorrow to pickup a CVA Elite Stalker Rifle...they are on sale for $159 Options are 270, 308, and 30-06 http://www.academy.com/index.php?pa...tart=0&selectedSKU=10+CVA+ELITE+STALKER+BLUED 24” barrel Composite stock with Ambidextrous cheek piece CrushZone recoil pad Deep pistol grip Drilled & tapped for scope Reversible cocking spur Lifetime Warranty Weight: 6.25 lbs. I am torn between calibers, I was originally thinking 308, but the 30-06 looks tempting with the bullet selection. I will use this for deer, and coyote...can't imagine my shots will go further then 250yards max....may take this to Kansas too. They also offer these in 270, but I already have a rem 700 in 270.....but a light gun to carry would be nice too. Whatcha think??? By the way, my wife will only care about the looks of the gun, and might hunt with it one or twice, otherwise it will ride in the truck with me.
