    Some of the local guys here used to make their own long range scopes. Only thing they found thin enough was cat hair.

    At 2200 fps you have a real killer, with a point blank range of 225 yards. More velocity is unneeded. Keep in mind, push them too fast and the effect is like a grenade going off, destroying a lot of meat. Hollow points are not necessary at all. I...

    We live out in the sticks for about four years now and have had a doe with twins or triplets every year. Nice to watch them grow up. Two years ago, the wife and I were leaving to go into towna d almost hit a small fawn, his spots were gone by...

    How does the venison taste from a deer who's been eating a lot of avocados?

    Do you shoot cast through any of the 40Xs? I wanted a dedicated cast target rifle, Remington makes their "Long Range" in .30-06, which I think is the only commercial factory heavy barreled .30-06 anymore. I'd rather have an '06 than a .308 for...

    By "cone" I suspect you mean group? If you went from 3" groups with the Lee to two foot groups with this one, it may just be that your gun doesn't like this bullet and that's that for whatever reason, it doesn't really matter if someone else got...

    I usually cut the back straps into steaks and pound them with a mallet for making chicken fried steaks. I started doing more venison pot roasts last year and have been having better luck with that than I used to, but I think venison stew is about...

    I had been living in Kansas about three years when I went hunting with some guys and saw my first really mature buck up close on the ground. The thing looked like a horse to me. And yet, no one freaked, the other guys were like "nice one! Throw...

    Congrats, good shooting. I forget how small deer are down south even though I grew up there. By the time they're a year old, our does here are all at least that big.

    I did try for quite a while to get a sporterized 6.5 Swede to shoot cast, gave up in frustration and one of those rare trading offs I had and still have ZERO regrets about. I do still have several 6.5 molds though. Was in the PX on post...

    I didn't look that close at the pile, but they all looked like the one he had pulled out which was all made of the same stuff and muriatic acid ate the test piece I put in it completely, nothing left, didn't even make the acid cloudy. I have sent...

    When my two boys got old enough for a shotgun (older than 7, by the way) I gave this a lot of thought. Narrowed down to either single shot or pump. All other actions are ready to fire immediately after a shot without any conscious action on the...

    If you have a hollow haired hide in your house, they will never stop shedding, and your wife will hate you. If you leave it as a raw hide it will most likely draw hide bugs.

    Only problem with a single is they are light and will recoil more. A pump weighs more. If you're set on a single shot, I see them at gun shows and LGS that have been cut down for a kid all the time. They're all good, so take your pick, I like...

    Quite a bit of talk about them on the single shot section of the forum. They look good, though I haven't shot one yet.

    Congratulations! Looks like a lot of meat there and also a lot of work cut out for you. I'm surprised it's still that green up there now.
