    .284 Win. and .264 Win Mag. aren't very common these days.

    .25-06 isn't too terribly unique, but it's what you want. .257 Roberts is less common, and would also be excellent.

      I understand the desire to have a different rifle from the rest of the guys. Before you buy an odd ball consider this. When you are an hour away from home and realize you forgot your bullets at the house are you going to find them at the local gas station? You can't go wrong with a 270, 308, or 30-06. Any one of those will drop any North American game and are common enough that ammo is affordable and everywhere you look. I personnaly have a Tikka T3 270. I love it! Common? yes. Common because its a great rifle? Yes!

        If you wan something different, there are a ton of wildcats you can get rifles chambered in, or better yet if you want to be really different, you could design your own cartridge and name it after yourself!

          You may have a bit of a problem finding the ammo for the 'something different' gun. I know it is extremely tough to find 25-06 ammo around here.
