Spring Shooting is right around the corner and many of us have bought new firearms. What did you get and what scope did you put on it?

I picked up a savage youth 7mm-08, and a Bushmaster in 308. The savage came with a basic Bushnell but works fine for my kid for now. The 308 has a Vortex Viper. Although I have recently shot them to get sighted in I'm looking forward to some range time once things warm up a bit.

I'm in the process of getting a new muzzleloader. No scope as they are not allowed in Nevada. Other than that, shooting my bow and need to send a few rounds down range through my 7mag.

I usually burn a thousand rounds a year through my .220 swift, .243,.17 rem, and .22 hornet shooting prairie dogs but with all these shortages going on, this year I think I'm going to pass.

Hey Dr, what kind of muzzleloader are you getting?

It's between a knight disc extreme and the new knight ultra lite.

My muzzleloader will be here Monday. A KonusPro scope on a CVA Accura MR. I have a Savage 16FHSS 243WIN coming next month. Will be putting a Vortex Viper 3-9x40 scope on it with Talley mounts.

I always wanted to get one of those, sounds like a nice set up. Stainless or blued?

I may not be shooting anything other than my air-rifle this spring ...... I just came back from looking for .22LR ammo. :(

I've heard ammo has been hard to find, so I've been casually looking, but geeze!

Thanks IT. I'm up north near Moscow, so that's a little out of the way for me. I'm headed to the Bighorn show in Spokane in a couple weeks so figure I'll hit all the sporting goods stores in Spokane and Coeur d' Alene.

I have a WBY Accumark 257wby I need to get loads worked up for (leupold vx3 4.5-14x40 cds) and dialed in. I started on it before Christmas and had gotten the 110gr accubonds close, but still wasn't to my liking. Also picked up a Remington 700 MTN SS in 7/08 at Christmas and put a Leupold VX3L 3.5-10x50 cds on it. I'm really hoping that one likes the same loads my wife's mtn rifle likes to simplify things.

Do a John Woo roll before pulling the trigger!

What, you've never broke out the airsoft gun and swat gear to shoot down wasp nests? :D

I just won a Rem 700 338 win mag at our local RMEF Banquet. It was the progressive raffle so now my name gets thrown in the bucket for the 8 day elk hunt as well. I already have a couple of favorites that I hunt with so it may be awhile before I actually shoot this one. Grandson will probably shoot it before I do.

Picked up a Dimension B Group .243, ordered a Vortex Viper HS LR 4-16/44, should be in in a week or so, I'm excited to shoot it!

I picked up a Weatherby Mark V Ultra Lightweight in 7mm Rem Mag. I'm putting a Swarovski Z5 5-25x52 with and Outdoorsman ballistic turret on it. It's at the gunsmith and should be ready in a few more days. I'm going to be trying out reloading soon too so it should be interesting with the new challenges and changes.

I've had a Winchester Model 70 in 30-06, since the late 1970's with a 3x9 Leopold scope on it so shooting something new is going to be different for me. Other than a trigger adjustment and putting on Pachmayr Decelerator pad it was stock since the day I had it.

I've hunted with a 7 mag a looong time. Very nice killing machine you're getting. You will be pleased.
