    I do admit to being a bit in love with Rob's rifle there, but I honestly find that my pretty blued / wood stocked guns usually end up sitting in the safe when I go hunting. I know I do a lot of walking (I'm a forester by profession) and I push sticks more than most people do, so I usually default to something stainless and synthetic for my hunting setup. I've always felt really bad scuffing up a nice wood stock, or not having a good opportunity to clean a nicely blued gun when it's -35 out, etc.

    While I've been happy with every Remington / Kimber / Winchester / Ruger / Sako / Tikka that I've had over the years, none of them really fit the "Grail" category.

    My current "Grail" build criteria:

    -> High end action, CRF
    -> Caliber with enough horsepower to be effective for the game and distance that I want, but not overkill. (I'll probably settle on 300wm or 338wm)
    -> Heavy enough to not have horrible recoil, light enough to be mobile, no muzzle brake. (Loud noise makes me flinch)
    -> Good trigger, good synthetic stock that fits me, well put together, etc.

    I'm going with a Defiance Deviant CRF action and a Krieger stainless #19 barrel. Triggertech trigger.

    Quite few years ago I decided to start seriously looking for my dream rifle. It was a Ruger #1 full stock in 7x57. I hadn't seen many for sale and figured it would take months if not years to find.
    Lo and behold the first time I went on the ee to look there it was, the first rifle listed. Needless to say my search was over almost before it began.
    I have never regretted that purchase. Next to my father's hunting rifle that I now have it is still my favorite go to hunting gun.

    I got soured on it, after a long search for ammo, brass, dies, projectile. 9 months in and hadn't shot it. I also have a old thread about too pretty to risk using guns, and was clearing out safe queens at the time.
    A free society must outlaw harming innocent people to function, but when we seek to curtail what all of us can do, rather than holding each of us responsible for what we actually do, we give up on freedom itself.

    My ideal hunting rifle would be a stainless morgan utah winchester model 70 short action with a proof or hardy carbon fibre wrapped barrel chambered in .260 remington sitting in a featherweight or wildcat composite stock.
    I can shoot a gun to make my lunch

    Already got a whack of dream rifles in my collection. But today if you told me I could only have one hunting rifle, I figure I'd be looking for a .338 Win. Mag or .375 H&H. In semi auto with one he77 of an effective light weight muzzle break. Optics would be a 4 to 14x power with back up iron sights. Maybe over kill to some, but it would kill all critters on the planet!
    The key to accuracy is to shoot first & call whatever you hit the target...

    If you are not part of the solution, there's good money to be made by prolonging the problem...

    My Steyr Scout with 2.5 Leopold is about as close to a grail that I own.
    My Marlin 336 Texan is close

    Man do I wish!
    Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
