    What will be your cartridge/rifle of choice for this fall? Second?

    so many choices, so little time! Since I will be only hunting deer this fall, will probably rotate 257 R, 25/06, 270 Win, 6.5x55, 308 and 30/06. Might throw in a 7 mag as well.

    2024 Spring Brown Bear Hunt Report

    You guys dont miss a trick! Here is the story. As I said earlier, I spined the bear on the first shot and it was academic after that. But since it is a dangerous animal, my guide kept telling me to shoot as long as it was moving. So on the second shot when the bear picked up his front half I...

    Bullet Identification

    I bought a batch of assorted pull down bullets last week and got 7 of these strange bullets I cannot identify. They are .277 diameter, 113 gr weight, no visible hollow point and 3 grooves, obviously an all copper bullet. I was thinking this might be intended for a 6.8 SPC or 277 Fury but that is...

    Wet Weather/Alaska/Brown Bear hunters

    I will be talking to my outfitter again in the next couple weeks. He originally wanted me to shoot a 300 mag but I prefer the 375. He said I needed to be able to shoot a 300 yard shot if necessary. I understand that his experience with clients shooting big rifle might not be the best. But I went...

    Wet Weather/Alaska/Brown Bear hunters

    Regarding the rain gear, I have a brand new set of Sitka rain gear as well as a rubberized overcoat to help. Don’t mind some hardship but at 63 don’t want to be wet and cold for 10 straight days!

    LRX is the fastest expanding bullet in the Barnes line. I do have a couple boxes of Swift A Frames in 250, 275 and 300 grain as well as 260 and 300 gr Nosler P’s. I have considered them all and I might be over analyzing this which I tend to do sometime being an engineer! lol! Probably would be...
