"Secondly, as far as rings and optics go, I actually already have them: the Talley Lightweights, as you mentioned, and then my scope is a Burris MTAC 4.5x14x42mm. It's heavier at almost 17 oz, but should fit my needs well. I took a chance on the MTAC (having no previous experience with Burris), and I'm extremely happy with it so far, although I've yet to shoot with it, of course. It's a discontinued model, but it looks great and very satisfied with the glass for the money I paid (about $160 out of my own pocket after gift cards), scope retailed for $550. Also have scope covers (BC) for it already so good there too."

Welcome to the Nation. The Vanguard S2 is a great choice in rifles, and the stock is easily removed for after market upgrade if you choose? The reinstall could be as simple as a drop-in or may require a bit of hand tooling for a good fit, just depends on what you upgrade to.

 I'm interested to hear your evaluation of this Burris multi dot ballistic reticle. Was it what you expected and how far out were you able to shoot?(to test the dots windage and elevation for precise distance) I can't say enough good things about Burris scopes, just never used an MTAC type scope on any of my rifles. You may have to try different bullet weights, (for 308 150 gr. and 168 are pretty std.) and even different brands of ammo to find your best accuracy. Every rifle has its own preference in ammo. Good luck at the range and let us know how the Burris worked out.

+1 Hmmmmm! But thats a big Hmmmmm at $4Grand  :o

For the contrast, I went with matte black on the brushed stainless. (223 T/C contender 14" barrel) The other picture is just to show the difference in looks.(44 mag T/C contender 10" barrel with custom muzzle tamer)

The old girl still carries herself well. She's a beaut.

I would suggest calling Talley on their 800 number and asking all the questions you have. They are very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and you don't have to buy from them, whatever you choose. They will give you the correct part numbers to get the best fit on your rifle. Get the right information, then buy wherever you want. 

Nice review.  Roger, Did you, or will you order a 16" or a 20". The 20" No.1 is pretty nice looking with the laminate stock.

Beautiful! Catch and release was completely out of the question. Canadian authorities looking for Alien Registration Papers while Wildlife Department wants to impose an over weight commodity tax. (Where did you find this Bad, I'd like to pass it along.) Too funny  ;D :D

Pictures of boxes and ammo are a good selling point, and noticed that in March the 7mag Eldorado's were $40.00 a box plus shipping.

I would call today instead of email

Roger, thats an interesting little package with a big wallop. If you don't already have a thumper in a lever gun, or in an AR,  and since bolt actions are suppose to be a more accurate platform, (debatable) the Ruger is probably a good choice. The suggested usage for the 450 says med/Lg. where the Weatherby 240 is rated for med. only. (some hunters are known to extend the 240's capabilities) Neither cal. has a big selection of factory loads. I guess your intended use of the rifle has a lot to do with your final choice, so that may carry more weight. I did notice on the Hornady ballistics that for a 200 yard zero, you would be 4.9 inches high at 100yards. Thats probably common for "big bore" so to speak calibers in lever and the AR platform though. So do you want to hit your target with a marble or a bowling ball? Ha Ha Buying a new rifle is always fun, so good luck in buying what you want.
