    Congrats. I've found my Savage Axis 308 to be a great rifle. Nothing like hunting on Thanksgiving. I still don't spend several hundred bucks on the latest camo, carbon lined stuff. Old Johnson wool jacket and wool pants if it's cold enough.

    I have run some 125jhp through a 35 Remington, it is some what spectacular on small colony type animals. I bet it was spectacular. What velocity did you run them at?

    I've got both Mossberg and Savage rifles in various calibers. Both are well made for plastic stocked guns on the lower price scale, no problems with them and very accurate for hunting. My wife's Savage 243 shot about .87 with my first handloads...

    I've finally started reloading my 416 Ruger using Shooters World seriously previously I've only had time for a few loadings. A member on here was kind enough to send me a variety of cast under 400gr so I could narrow down a mold. There is not a...

    Be careful with what scope you put on that air rifle. They have a different recoil impulse than a traditional rifle and can shake a scope apart. Better to get a scope designed for an air rifle.

    If there was a even a small crack on the underside of the flywheel at the mounting hole, that'll do it. You just helped me solve a problem with an old Husky 41 I rebuilt but wouldn't run without a lot of help. :drinks:

    Pretty much mirrors my experience at the Dixie Gun and Knife last weekend in Raleigh, NC. Not a bad selection of wood and steel but tables and tables of plastic handguns and rifles. I did see an old 25-35 lever and was looking it over and the...

    Look on a box of Bisquick or go to the online sight and look for a recipe for quick chicken pie. Substitute the venison for the chicken and it will be the best "chicken pie" you ever had.
