    What does "accurate rifle" mean to you?

    Our bread and butter roe deer is rather small. I guess close to your coyotes? For them, I definitely want sub moa and I don't let anyone go out with ammo I load if it doesn't meet that. I do it with a 6,5 Creedmoor Savage On the other hand, my Tikka in 30-06 was able to produce fantastic...

    Federal 180 Grain TSX 338 Win Mag

    Within reasonable distances, the TTSX will open without having to hit the shoulder. At closer distances,you might loose a petal or two, if you hit hard bone with that speed. These might take a strange path and ruin a bit more meat.

    Appreciate this forum

    Just to let you know: It is the same here in German forums. Some know-it-alls highjack a thread and within 15 posts it goes south. Good and knowledgeable people leave silently. What's left are the king-kongs banging on their chests , killing every thread.

    Federal 180 Grain TSX 338 Win Mag

    Sorry - I meant the 338 from the original post. I'd never doubt getting enough speed from the 300 WBy

    Federal 180 Grain TSX 338 Win Mag

    What speed do you get with them? I used the 168 TTSX in a 30-06 way back on our small roe deer. Looking back I should have taken the 150 gr variant. But still, they usually went down quickly and expanded. You white tails are way bigger and I don't expect them to pencil through on reasonable...

    Tikka T3x Laminate Stainless 260 Rem

    Nice gun. I considered rebarreling a Savage 223 with laminated stock to 260. In the end I sold it and bought a Creedmoor. Still not sure if it was the right decision...

    Finding the sweet spot

    4350 is no longer available over here. Some stupid EU regulations... I have good results with reload Swiss and rumor has it that some RL powders are made by them. Though RS60 is said to burn through barrels rather quickly. Well - it is a hunting rifle. So the barrel will still last some years

    New 7mm Rem Mag Bergara

    I talked my the husband of my girlfriend's cousin into a Bergara timber and since a savage we agreed on didn't make it over the pond, she chose a ridge. Both 308 and my handloads seem to work well. They kinda know what they are doing!

    Biden wants to restrict ammo sales to civilians

    Well. It is not the gun that kills. But looking at it from an ocean apart: What is your opinion? Why do you have so many gun-kills? Switzerland for example gives every man an assault rifle after service. They have it open on their backs in busses. Little happens there. What is different in the...

    What's the story used? Will all be shipped to Ukraine?
