Headed out to Idaho next week Bear hunting with Guide.
We are going to do hunting over Bait, Spot and Stalk and Dogs and I have two tags in different zones.
I’ll let you guys decide what to take.
# 1 6mm Rem with 100gr Hornady BTSP scope 2.5x8 36mm
# 2 .264 Win Mag with 130gr...
Mounted a Scope today. Rock River with Leupold mount & Vortex 1-6 24mm Razer E
Vortex says not to torque rings more than 18 inch lb and the Leupold Mount says 28 inch lb.
I just went with 18 inch lb per Vortex.
This should do correct ?
Well what to do sell it, keep it, shoot it ? I won this rifle over 35 years ago in a Bar pool on a $ 3.00 ticket.
Gave it to my Brother and now I have it back. Never Fired .308 Win Savage 99, I will say it has nice lines to it for a 120 year old design.
Well after many many years being on the fence about a AR15 and with my Brother telling Me I should have one. A couple weeks ago I went to the local gun store and ordered a Rockriver A4 .223 Rem 5.56 Wylde chamber with a stainless barrel 20 inch 1-8 twist and chrome Varmint trigger 3.5lb
I have had this rifle since the mid 1970’s Remington 700 BDL 6mm Rem. I originally had a Weaver fixed four power scope on it for a few years then I thought I needed more power in a scope.
Then it had a Weaver 3x9 40mm micro track for close to 40 years with Weaver rings & Bases and was extremely...
I'm kind of surprised we have not heard anything from Nosler of New products for 2021. I know all Manfactures of ammunition products are busy but usually that does not stop development of new products. Just curious.
I have not shot my 300 H&H Mag for a couple years and plan on taking it Elk hunting. I fired a total of three rounds to check zero. It is sighted dead on at 300 yards last time I shot it. I fired three shots at 100 yards and I called the first shot slightly left on the first shot.
I would of...
Went to the range today to try several different brands of .22LR in my Marlin 39A with Williams Peep sight. What I learned My vision is getting where I could not shoot a very small groups the best was around 1.5 inch and worst 4 inch pattern. It depended what the target looked like also. My...
The 11-87 in the bottom of the Photo I have is over 30 years old and has in excess of 50,000 rounds and could be as high as 75,000 rounds. With it I have shot my best league score of 248x250 and the gun did not cause me to miss the two.
How many Parts have broken 30 plus years Zero yes.
I was out to my Friend Rifle Range the other day shooting my .223 Rem and
He wanted me to shoot one of His Rifles a WWII Japanese action a Herter’s Stock a Barrel he installed in .243 Win. and Timmy Trigger. A Beautiful Rifle but two quirks it’s Safety which I liked and it cocks the action on...

The reason I ask is I just polished a few hundred.223 Rem cases looked great when I took them out of vibrater, but I wiped them all off then was sizing them and putting them in a gallon bucket when I noticed green flakes all over on my sized cases.
Went from clean to greasy with green...

Just curious if the Rifles coming out of Wyoming are as good as build Quality as before the move.
I know training employees takes time. What have you been seeing or hearing ?
I know my Brothers Vanguard and Mark 5 are very nice rifles but those are the only ones I have seen in the field.
Quick question guys.
Does anyone know the magazine box length on Remington 700 6mm Rem short action box length ?
Also Remington 700 .223 Rem short action box length.
What length is Max length can you reload to still get correct functioning as I don't want single shot in my hunting Rifles...

If you had 10 points where would you go and any Outfitter ? Or would you make it a DIY hunt ?
I’m still in good enough shape for another back pack hunt in me but I would pay a packer to get it back to the road on horses.
Any and all ideas welcomed, I would like to use these points.
