I had a somewhat similar situation once. Let me say first that it makes no difference to me if someone sits next to me when all the other stations are empty. However,if it's one of those meddling types that start making unwarranted suggestions or comments, a WSM may be a good solution. My 325wsm rifles with muzzle brakes motivated one of the aforementioned types to move to the other end of the range. Granted I did start shooting much faster 5 round strings with both rifles back to back; to tune his senseless comments out. Prior to that I was shooting very slow 3 shot groups and 15 minute barrel cooling periods between rifles. Apparently it accomplished more than were my intentions. LOL As for a favorite? I love them all when they are satisfying their purpose. Other than that I’d have to say my Deluxe rifles- and again it’s not any one in particular. Heck I’m still in my glory when I shoot my 30-30 and it’s the least precise firearm I own. Go figure.If I had to choose 1, I would say that I like my 300 WSM the most. Its a fun gun to shoot at the range.
I had a guy shooting next to me at my gun club at the 400 yard range. There are 10 benches....9 of them were open and he decided to sit next to me to shoot for whatever reason......
So I shot and he picked up his crap and moved to the other end...lol
I guess its my favorite because I saved up for so long to buy this and it was my first nice rifle setup. I would be very sad if something happened to this rifle and I would pay almost anything to replace it. VERY hard gun to find these days.
