    Other than pictures of my family, this one is my favorite.

    Thank you everybody, the split moment the trail cam caught is the reason I enjoy the out of doors. Mother nature will always provide something new and exciting. I learn something everytime I go out there. Thank you all.

    Springtime Black Bear

    BruceP, I am very jealous. Seeing bears is one of my favorite things when I am in the outdoors of Montana.

    Other than pictures of my family, this one is my favorite.

    If you look toward the upper left of the picture, you will see a white dot. To the left of the spot, you will see me sitting in the rocks and boulders. I thought that the noise I was hearing were turkeys moving to their roost trees. Imagine my surprise when the young lady walked by me at a...

    Light weight mountain build, Caliber?

    I have a Ruger lightweight chambered in 257 Roberts. When loaded and used properly, I would have no problem shooting at an elk. In fact, I did!

    I would like to ask for help please.

    Thank you Gentlemen, Like I said before, I am a scaredy cat in situations like this. I really appreciate the time and help.

    I would like to ask for help please.

    Gentlemen, I really appreciate the help. To be honest, I am a scaredy cat when it comes to working outside the published reloading data. After reading the replies, I have a grasp on how to work up the AR-Comp safely for my 257. Like I said, I am a scaredy cat and will work on this project...

    I would like to ask for help please.

    I recently purchased a 6.5 Grendle upper for myself. In the process of working up loads for the Grendle, I came across an Alliant powder called AR-Comp and was fully impressed with the incredible accuracy using the powder. I would like to use AR-Comp in my beloved 257 Roberts but I can't find...

    44 Special Loads in a magnum case..

    I would suggest trying IMR4227 powder for the 44 loads. The powder provides decent velocities without the sharp bone jarring recoil that is found in commercial 44mag loads. I have used this powder with 240 and 300gr XTPs out of a 7 1/2" Ruger Redhawk to hunt and plink pinecones and other...

    BFR

    I worked with a man who got himself a 475 linebaugh BFR. He brought it to the pistol range one Saturday and I walked over to watch him shoot the pistol. There is no doubt in my mind the man had no idea what he got himself into, after shooting two factory rounds, he put the pistol away and had...

    Load recommendations for my .44 mag.

    I have hunted bear and deer with my 7.5" redhawk. I used 300grn Hornady XTPs with a maximum load of H4227. The performance of the load was like the hand of God would just knock the deer and bear down and the animals would be DRT. I would have no issue hunting for elk at a reasonable range with a...

    Only horns?

    Wow! I really appreciate the posts and knowledge on this forum. I am a lowly cabinet maker but replies like the ones here really get my interest up. Can anyone steer me to more information? Thanks to everybody.

    Only horns?

    I wonder why there are no forked antler type animals in Africa. Does anybody know why? I am sure the reason would be interesting. Maybe it is just too dangerous being without some sort of defense for the 2 or 3 months without antlers? GeorgeS, thank you for your knowledge and reply.

    Only horns?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I find myself watching more and more Africa based hunting programs on tv. I would like to go to Africa sometime in my life but it won't be soon. Now for the big question, are there any animals in Africa with a forked antler like our mule deer or whitetails? I have looked...

    Loading lead for a 30-30 rifle. Help please

    Gentlemen, I pulled the trigger far too fast on this one. My apologies. I would like to learn about loading lead for the 30-30. I have loaded lead for the 45acp but none for a rifle. This is the only forum I ask reloading questions on. I don't know why, but I trust you guys. I will do my...
