Depends on what you mean by "best" The world of 98k's is a very complex one....and in a general statement I would say the pre-war 98's to hold great value, there are some here and there that are much more valuable.

Now as to the best shooting guns....eh....here there same same.....given that the guns are in like shape they will all shoot about the same....a bnz is going to shoot with a byf is going to shoot with a dot.

The real shame is that place that sells them....I think the initials are MM. Biggest bunch of crooks out there....oh well now that the supply of 98k's are starting to dry up they can't rob people anylonger on those, but now are working the 91/30 and VZ angles.

I have a .54 cal Knight that is a blast to shoot, but maybe not as versatile as a .50 cal. The .50 would be a little better for long range, especially if you are shooting the 150 gr powder loads and saboted bullets. 50 cal components are easier to find in the stores. Either caliber will work on game just fine.

I do enjoy the .54. Shooting 500+ gr maxi balls is some good fun!
It did seem high to me, but it comes with bullets, a possibles kit/bag, CO2 ball discharger, ADCO red dot on quick release SS mounts (I'll have to take this off for hunting) etc.

Thanks for the input though.

Just put a 7 day hold on a Browning 1885 high wall .22-250 (1985 model) in hopes of doing some 'yote hunting this winter. Great looking piece of hardware, as much awe factor as my little bda .380. Hex barrell, falling block, 95% condition. Have a weekend to decide on oil for the furnace or a new toy.

But the scope needs eventual upgrade (high country 6 - 2440 I think on there now, Tasco?). Any thoughts on a good set up for this piece? I'm in Maine so those 400 yard shots would be almost non-existant. Whats the deal with those Nikon coyote scopes? Buying the brand? Never owned a scoped rifle (shoot black powder mostly now) so new territory for me.

1885's are one of my favorites. You don't need a scope. Go with a mid-range Creedmore sight like this:

I've got a set installed in my 1885 in 45-70. Old school but not as old as black powder. If you need a scope, an 1885 deserves a Malcolm Leatherwood:

Looks like a nice rifle. I have a williams peep on my .54 since it used to be illegal to use a scope where I hunted. It made all the difference, as I can't hit squat with typical open sights. The .54 components are a little harder to find, but shooting saboted bullets makes it a little easier. Buy a bunch of sabots and pick whatever bullets you want to use. Either way, good luck!
