I have managed to save up a little extra spending money, and am looking at buying a new rifle. Practical considerations make me lean towards a decent large game gun, probably a Rem 700 in .300 mag.

But I have always liked Sig 550's. When they first came to the US, I could have bought a new one for about a grand. At the time, I was doing a lot of trap shooting, so I spent the dough on shotguns instead.

Now pre-ban 550's are selling for 8-9 grand!!! Grrrrr.
