Are you interested in getting a "pretty" rifle or a hardworking, all-weather tool?
 
Action type?
 
What will be the intended use?

the new ruger compact magnums have me somewhat intrigued, not as much recoil as the wsms and about on par with the rsum if they came in something other than a ruger, i wouldnt mind trying one out. the .260 is something i crave somewhat as is a 7-08 and also a .257roberts and a .257wby 7mag and a .338mag would be okay too. 450 marlin and 444marlin wouldnt be ruled out either. i have a 22-250 so anything in a that category wouldnt be necessary, the new mini 14 in a 6.8spc intrigues me some too.

Pyro, how about a .338 Fed., puts you into the medium bore range, without severe recoil.  I personally own a .444 marlin and love it, but it sure packs a wollop, simular to a .375 h&h or 12ga. slug

i dont have any trouble with the 12 ga slug, ive never shot a .375h&h but i know the light weight 300wsm i had was a kicker, the .338 fed imo is taking the .308 case beyond its effective range in terms of total performance, the .308 itself it probably as far up the scale as they should have gone, not enough case capacity to justify it. i dont know how much i would really use a lever gun so the 444 and 450 marlins would be last resorts i guess.

Ya, the 338 fed isn't the best ballistically, just a suggestion.  What about upgrading one of the calibers you already own to a nicer rifle.  Thats what i'm currently doing, taking the calibers i'm in love with upgrading to a finer gun, that usually cures the itch.

Just remember that recoil is as much mental as it is physical in most respects.  If you can handle a 12ga slug, you won't have a problem with a a 338 mag. I agree with you in that the wsm line is "sharp" in recoil, where as the 338 is more of a "push".  I just think you owe it to yourself to try something bigger, it looks like you have the .264 line well covered, nothing really to gain unless you go to the over .30 crowd

Anchutz in .22 hornet?Elite
 
Ruger #1 in .257 something
 
Personally, unless you are hunting elk, moose or large bear I'd get something FUN like one of the CZ 527 in .223 or .204 and let the local varmits live in FEAR.

Pyro, for North American game I would recommend the 270 Win. Bucky   
 
If that doesn't interest you I think the CZ in 6.5X55 would be great....I have wanted one for years--but all my money seems to find its way to my kids, somehow.....   HA!              --Ed

im starting to go that way to, i already have two of them and a third on the way, but they need guns to hunt with as well, but who knows if the boys will be intrested in hunting or not, i have been exposing it to them with my own hunts and also with tv hunts and they seem to be in to it, so thats gotta be a good start.
im just really impressed with the beautiful wood the cz's i have looked at posses.

  It sounds to me as though you've got everybody pretty well covered with bolt guns suitable for most North American game.  Might I suggest putting that money toward a semi-guided hunt somewhere you've never been before, for something you've not hunted yet.
 If your boys are old enough to tag along, the whole family can get involved and you'll have a lot of fun planning it together! Maybe hogs or Texas exotics, or spring bear in the West? It doesn't have to be an expensive safari.
 I bring this up because I've been thinking along those lines myself.  Working class slob putting in overtime to buy another gun when I can't find enough time to shoot or hunt with the ones I have!  I'm going to shift my thinking a little here, now that my sons and daughters are getting old enough to start tagging along on hunts, even if they aren't legally old enough to hunt yet.  They are old enough to start learning though.

 Have you ever had any interest in C&R rifles? There are a lot of GREAT deals on old milsurps right now, and they don't make most of them anymore, so they often rise in value much faster than your run-of- the -mill sporters. Swiss K-31s for example used to go for 49 bucks a couple years ago, when I bought mine. Now the lowest-priced ones are 124 plus shipping. Name another rifle that has doubled in value in only a couple years. ( If you aren't familiar with this rifle-DON'T LAUGH at the price.  A recent industrial study determined that it would cost a modern manufacturer $1300 in production costs to duplicate this rifle today on a production scale. The fit and finish are literally marvelous, and they are amazingly accurate as well).

 Still a few Mausers out there too, not like years ago, though.
British #3s and #4s, all kinds of interesting stuff, especially for a handloader!
 You could get 20 Mosin-Nagants for about a grand, and have a lot of fun sorting through them and cleaning them up. Ammo is cheap, too.
