I know long range rim fire shooting is becoming popular, they even have a 200 yard competition at the local gun club. There are some specialty rim fire rifles and scopes out for this nitch market
Well I have been thinking about it and talked to Remingtonman25-06 about it. So after shooting at...
We went out to the farm Saturday to check zeros for this year's crop damage deer hunting.
We shot at 300, 400, 525 and 600 yards. Sue brought her Nosler M48 Mountain Carbon 30 Nosler loaded up with 180 gr BT's and I had my trusty Remington 700 338 RUM with 250 gr AB's and the Nosler M21 308 Win...
Sue got her bear rug back from the taxidermist. She did a fantastic job on the rug and we both are quite pleased with the end result!
Sue hasn't decided yet where it will go, I'm leaving that up to her. She is super excited about it and that's all that really matters to me.
I just wanted to make you guys aware of another source for brass. I just ordered a couple of bags of 375 H&H brass directly from Remington. They picked up the shipping.
I took advantage of the break in the weather and shot a few rounds in the Nosler M21 308 Win.
I think IMR 4064 is the powder for the 308 Win. 150 gr BT 46.0 grs IMR 4064, Nosler case Fed GM210 primer. Avg MV 2832 fps from a 22" barrel.
Just need to play with the seating depth and tighten up...
We decided to try a new recipe which was for county style ribs and just happened to have a few packages from Sue's bear in the freezer.
All I can say is that they were amazing.
We had decided to pass on the mashed potatoes and cook some asparagus basted in Tuscan Herb Olive Oil. The dry red wine...
I have a 1992 Japanese made Weatherby Mark V 26" barrel chambered in 416 Wby. Comes with the original wood stock and a Bell & Carlson Wby MKV LA #3 contour 2nd Lug Black/Gray Web stock (6570-22), Accubrake and scope bases. $1700.00

Looks like I'll be shooting a 308 Winchester this fall. I wanted to run the 165/168 gr BT but availability is a problem so I'm going with the 150 gr PT. I've got a couple pounds of RL15 to get me started.
What are you fellas loading for the 308 Win?
Thanks for your help.
Shot from a 280 AI and recovered both bullets at 100 yards in the 5th water jug.
MV 3000 fps
#1 weighs 102.9 grs and .659" diameter.
#2 weighs 101.1 grs and .650" diameter.
I'm going to hunt WT deer with this bullet this fall. Should be a good one.
My wife pulled a bear tag for the first season this year. We started the training sessions this week and the progress has been amazing.
Shooting her Nosler M48 Mountain Carbon 30 Nosler with 180 gr BT's at 3000 fps, shooting off a tripod at the target 65 yards away. Jogging from the target to...
Just ordered another Boyt soft rifle case for Sue's 30 Nosler. I've got several of them and they hold up well.
Canvas outer shell, soft quilted flannel inst. A leather cover on the end to protect the muzzle, leather strap and a brass zipper/hardware. I like them.
What do you folks like/ use?
My buddy has a Nosler M48 Mountain Carbon in 33 Nosler and is running the 265 gr ABLR factory load at 2750 fps. He shot a crop damage for at 40 yards quartering on just in front of the shoulder and recovered it under the hide in front of the hind quarter. The bullet penetrated about 30" and the...
I picked up a Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon Grade 1 12 gauge with 26" barrels. I got a pretty good price for it on Gun Broker. The balance is good and it just points right where I'm looking. I'm looking forward to shooting it.
A buddy just picked up a Nosler M48 Mountain Carbon in 33 Nosler. He plans on shooting the 265 gr ABLR with Nosler brass. Looking at Retumbo, RL19 and RL22. Not sure about others like IMR4831.
Could someone please run QL for me.
Thank you for the help.
For general big game hunting, which round is the best bet?
The 280 Rem is a solid pick. The 140 gr bullets for deer/antelope and 160-175 gr bullets for elk and moose. The 280 Rem is flat shooting with mild recoil. Reloading offers a wide selection of bullets from 100-180 grs. Pretty tough to...
