Contender Carbine For Compact Travel

We continue to get responses from readers about what guns they’re using. Tim F. writes:

“I bought a Remington 700 in .270 caliber 45 years ago for my first hunting rifle. I still have it, but it sees very little use. I have a T/C Contender carbine in 7-30 Waters that breaks down for compact traveling. For severe weather conditions, I will borrow my wife’s Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker in .30-06.

“My personal favorite is a custom Mauser in .375 H&H–a bit of overkill for most situations, but still my favorite, and very effective on moose as well as African game. A Winchester Model 70 in 7mm Rem. Mag. is my go-to rifle for most North American stuff. I also purchased a Sabatti DR in .470 at the 2011 SCI Convention. It served me well on a tuskless elephant in the Zambezi Valley last month.”
