    Well, I can say for sure that my load will kill a mulie no problem. 20 minutes before the end of legal shooting hours I made an 80 yard shot on a big doe quartering toward me. I missed the front shoulder bone, but it went in through the meat,...

    Yeah, I hear you on the difficulty of knowing how long it will take to get home. The drive is pretty certain. Otoh, if the dead doe ends up on the wrong side of the ridge, it will be less than speedy getting to the truck.

    Understood, Don. I have shot this load at 100 yards many times and will likely not take a shot over 150 yards with it, so no worries. I was mostly wanting confirmation that this combination would kill deer. For elk next month I will be using...

    Going the coming weekend. I played around with a ballistic calculator and tried varying the initial speed a bit to see how far I could be off. Out to 150 yards it does not make a meaningful difference. I also have some additional fudge factor due...

    It was in the teens this morning, but will be 60s in a couple days. That is the way it is here. If I drop a doe, I plan to gut in the field, drag her to the truck, make a beeline for the house, and immediately skin her. After that, she will go...

    My season starts Saturday and the weather will be up to 60 degrees. If I do bag a doe, I will be around an hour from home once I get it back to the truck. Is that quick enough that I won't have to bring ice with me?

    As a follow up, I got my order in a speedy fashion and boxed up some 30-06 cast loads that were languishing in zip locs. The boxes are easy and quick to assemble and the shell packer was easy to use. The fit was very good. Nice product at a very...

    I am kind of frustrated dealing with my 35 Rem cast load. I have been working with the classic RCBS 200 grain mold and H4198, since the Lyman cast manual shows good accuracy with this powder. I must gave come up with my load in relatively early...

    What a neat product, and modestly priced. I ordered a bundle of boxes and a speed loader for 30-06. Much better solution than stuffing shells in zip locks and loose in ammo boxes.

    I generally wear leather boots when hiking to avoid cactus spikes in my feet, so I am good there.

    Opening day of small game season today, so my buddy and I went out. We have had a hot dry summer and today was on the warm side. I have never seen a snake while hunting, so I wasn't watching for them. Today I got within 3 feet of one and it went...

    Have a range finder and unless the target were obviously within 100 yards (such as a deer stepping out from a stand of trees I had already ranged) I do not take shots without checking. The rifle range I have access to is a 100 yard one, so that is...

    Sounds like I am good to go with the big boolit load. I have a third load, but at 152 grains, 2000 fps or so, and a small meplat I can't see how I would pick it given that the heavier boolit is at least as accurate.

    Yeah, the big boolit load is plenty accurate and the recoil is modest enough that I shoot it enough to be right on at 100 yards. Not worried about being able to put the metal on the meat, just want to make sure it will thump a big bodied mulie with...

    I have a tag for a mulie doe next month and it is in a place that can have kind of sparse cover between the Ponderosa stands. That means that most likely I will be on the ridge looking down or straight at a deer, and the lack of cover means the...
