    Rifle Types...

    Favorite? 9mm full automatic sub gun. Non NFA favorite? Marlin 45-70 SBL. Also like pump action shotguns and bolt action rifles too. Handiest? The AR platform but it happens to be my least favorite and I own four of them. Vince

    New (Old?) Elk Rifle

    I’ll be the odd one and suggest a 375 Ruger with a good brake. 🤣 J/K…….sort of. If you reload I’d suggest a 6.5 PRC. If not a 6.5 Creedmoor would serve you well using a mono metal bullet. Vince

    Best tasting African meats

    I’ve never tried African meat but they make a brandy that is made to mix with Coca Cola. I know. Sounds disgusting but it’s actually quite good. I’ve been blessed with two bottles in my lifetime from friends that have hunted Africa. Klipdrift is the name of it. I wouldn’t mind another bottle...

    The all arounder/utility/truck rifle

    I’d throw a 45-70 in the truck and call it good. You could substitute a pistol cartridge lever gun for the aforementioned ground squirrel gun. Vince

    Barrel break in.

    My preference is to clean it good then go shoot it a lot. If I’m using cup and core bullets I may never clean the barrel again. If it’s copper I clean every twenty rounds or so. Vince

    New Girl

    Don, I envy you. Not for the rifle but for being able to kick the monkey off your back. Been chewing since I was fourteen. I’ll be the big six zero in a couple years. Vince

    I love the Maggie but being as mine is blued with a 26” barrel I wanted a shorter barrel option. Also wanted stainless steel. I’ve no doubt Maggie would acquit herself well. Vince

    I’m single, don’t really have an inclination to mingle, and my dog goes where I go so we’re Alaska bound!

    Not in a position where reloading is feasible for me right now. Vince

    Since I’m not reloading for the time being I’m starting to stockpile factory ammo for the 375 Ruger and wanted to get some opinions. As I’m moving to Alaska this summer I want to take some factory ammunition with me. Here’s what I’m thinking and I’d like to see if y’all concur. 9 Boxes 270...

    .223 Rifles for Deer sized game

    While the .223/5.56 will work why not an AR10 for deer and a AR15 for coyotes, prairie dogs, and home defense? That gets you two rifles. 🤔😁
