    22 Rim Fire Long Range?

    I love shooting my rimfire trainer out to 400 yards. I’ve found cci standard velocity is the best bang for your buck. My LR 22 is a tikka T1x in a bravo chassis with a usoptics TS- 12. Anything over 200 yards it’s very difficult to hear the impacts on steel even when shooting...

    Who here shoots or hunts with a specialty pistol/hand-rifle/pifle/hand cannon?

    I have used a t/c contender and encore for years. My current one is a 338 federal barrel on my encore. I have taken several deer with 35 Remington barrel on contender and 22 hornet and 223 barrels for varmints.

    Canada have some new laws coming?

    Biden would like to ban all guns! I don’t think they have any chance going after 9mm. The left is already looking at getting seriously trounced in the med term elections, gun control has always been a losing issue for the left. Look at what the last “assault weapon” ban did to the...

    Interesting rifle!

    Thank you all for the condolences. I’m just glad I got to take dad hunting last fall. I know it really meant a lot to him, and me too. They’ve both moved on to better a better place.

    Interesting rifle!

    My dad passed away earlier this week and I had came down to Michigan to help settle his affairs. One of the things I’m doing is shipping and selling off his gun collection. I’ve ended up having to ship up to Alaska 6 handguns and 8-9 rifles. One of them was his pride and joy an old SXS...

    Cast Performance 260gr WFNGC for the .44

    I load that bullet in my 44 mag. When it comes to cast bullets I don’t see any reason to run them much over 1100-1200 fps. There is a real point of diminishing returns after 1000fps. I’ve been loading them with 9.0gr of tightgroup. It’s a pretty mild load but it will penetrate like crazy.

    Bear Hunting Poll ?

    I’d probably go with the 300 H&H. I don’t see any scenario that won’t work. It might be a bit heavy and clumsy chasing hounds though.

    280 AI makes meat

    I got dads skull mount back from the taxidermist today. It turned out great. Sadly this has been a rough year. Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer just before Christmas, and we lost mom a couple weeks ago. It was nice to have something nice to look at at remember a great hunt.

    What are your current LR hunting rigs...Pics would be great!

    I have a few very nice long range rifles. Mostly range toys. The only one light enough to be practice would be my Christensen arms MPR in 338 lapua will most likely get some hunting time in the next season. I have a very accurate load for the 300gr accubond. My two main hunting rifles have...

    Big and little:

    That looks to be a very versatile two gun battery. I’m interested to hear how the 92gr hammers work out, I have a couple boxes of them I picked up for my 25 WSSM.

    What's Your "Fun Gun"?

    My fun gun is my tikka T1x trainer. Staple gun quiet and accurate out to 300+ yards. Shooting steel or clays out to 300-350 yards. Also great for positional shooting practice.

    The ignore feature comes in handy

    25/06 standard or Ackly?

    I figured they would be considering the stellar performance I have gotten from the 124 6.5 hammer hunters, I might have to pick your brain on load data

    25/06 standard or Ackly?

    This whole thread was about my rifle rebarrel to 25/06. The first line in your quote was that rifle cries for a 24” tube in 25/06. It wasn’t until after my reply that you specified you were referring to the 6.5. For not giving a hoot you seem to have cared enough to make multiple posts...

    25/06 standard or Ackly?

    I wasn’t keeping it 6.5 in any event. I have a pair of 6.5 PRC , but in the 25/06 there is enough capacity to use the extra length. Compared to my suppressed rifles it will still be “short”
