What it will do most is be practicing at the range at as far distances as I and it can manage. Going to opt for either 270win or 300win mag but the 270 is recommended to me the most. It will do the occational hunt but its more the prior. I also love the look of both. If it was available in stainless fluted I guess that would be first prize. If I would weigh the initial pros and cons the blue fluted pros are being lighter, price is less and the looks. What would the stainless pros be. Is it more durable, would it stay more true at higher tempreratures? Some say fluting is to make it stronger but I always thought its to increase the cooling surface area.
