    Texas by God replied to a thread Savage axis? in Factory Rifles
    Based on looks and magazine alone, I prefer the Stevens model 200.( basic m110) I bought one for my youngest daughter when they were introduced. I guess that Savage disagreed with me and replaced it with the Edge/Axis. I put a Boyd's Sky laminate...

    I made a head shot on a squirrel that was inside the deer feeder cage. No damage to the feeder! About 70yards away, resting on my truck window. The Bee is good for such things. The corn fed fat fancy rat is in the fridge! Sent from my SM-A716U...

    I am learning as I go as well. Previously I have used the Lee C309150F in the 30-30 and it worked well, the buck fell just a few yards after the shot. That was with straight wheel weight alloy. This year, I'm using range scrap. I've killed two...

    Thanks to Koger, I'm going to try some 55gr Lee Bator bullets in it. As soon as I make some with the mould he sent. I've also ordered a regular pistol grip stock for it. I've been looking every day for a turkey to try it out on, but they must have...

    Texas by God replied to a thread Next purchase in Military Rifles
    Stay away from 1916 Spanish 7mm Mausers. I've had 3 of them since 1973 and not a one was even plinking accurate. Good actions, though. The Yugo mausers that I've shot were as accurate as any 8mm Mauser that I've ever tried- and in newer shape. Lee-...

    Twenty nine grs of 748 under the Lee C309170F in my 30-30 was pleasant and accurate. Three shots in .20" @40yds accurate. I'll echo others about using it in the .223 also- good stuff. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    Today's 100yds 5 shot group was 1-3/4". I think that a better shot could tighten that up, but it'll work for me. I think that I got lucky on this one and I'll take it. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I do not have the sight or an SKS. I would just prefer having an adjustable reciever sight on any rifle so I can use different loads(ex: cast bullets) and adjust POI. I didn't mean to say that the sight would fix the problem that exists- just that...

    For dtknowles .300 WM brass, I offer about fifty 30-30 brass. I suspect they are once fired, but some stain is left from poor storage. I labeled them for cast but they'll work for J-words too. Don't forget to PIF. Sent from my SM-A716U using...

    Based on my experience with jacketed bullets, Marlin Micro groove rifles out shot Winchester rifles in 30-30 quite often. That said, my most accurate 30-30 to date has a 1-10" twist- but it's a bolt action. I think that in rifles differing only in...

    1 Hawkeye nailed it. They improved the checkering on the stocks (from the impressed type) in the later 70s. Aside from cast bullets, try some H414/W760 or Hodgdon Superformance for top velocities with jacketed. On that "BLACKPOWDER X" date code...
