I don't know if it's because I'm older or smarter now, but I'm all about the weight. I really like the lighter shorter rifles. My marlin short carbines have become very attractive.

How much do the Wizards weigh? I have seen them on the auction sites and they look interesting. Especially the interchangeable barrels. I'm not a big fan of the .223 for deer hunting, but a Wizard in .243 would certainly cover a lot of hunting situations.

The Savage 340 is a pretty nice economy grade rifle. I have handled a few of them, but never owned one. The Wizard might be a better choice, because you could start with the .223 and than add other calibers later.

Those are all good caliber choices. I want to hear the range report when you shoot the 35 Whelen barrel. :D
