I'm just wondering what you all think is the best thing to happen to rifles since the turn of the 20th century? New powder developments such as the slower kind that brought the .25-06 into its own? New cartridges like .204 Ruger, .338 Lapua, etc? New techniques in building rifles? New materials? Personally, I love that I can get a modern rifle built for the 6.5x55 Swede. I love my CZ 550 American and it's a lot of fun to load for this strong action.
