    I'm reposting this since I dropped off the planet for a while to deal with family stuff. Along the way I lost contact with the people who responded, so PLEASE respond again.

    I'm looking for a rifle or 2 for Alaska & Elk hunting. Long Range accuracy is a must. I prefer stainless/composite and lean towards a muzzle brake on big-bore magnums (although I admit I've never had one to shoot). Will consider a rifle with a shot-out barrel for a fair price.

    My first choice is a Weatherby Accumark in .340 Weatherby. Second would a Weatherby Accumark in .257 Weatherby. A .338 Lapua in a cary-weight rifle would have me VERY interested. Someone must have a cannon they are tired of!

    (Also looking for a QUALITY .243, preferably stainless with a composite stock.)

    Let me know what you have.

    I've got a couple of .270wsm rifles I might trade or we could do cash.:
    • a Tikka T3 in .270 WSM with a Bushnell Elite 3-9x50 Firefly reticle
    • a Rem 700 XCR in .270 WSM with a Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x scope
    I've never hunted with either these rifles. I shot them just enough to sight them in with a 200 yard zero.

    Thanks!
