    I start thinking 260 or 6.5 Creedmoor if I want a lighter weight rifle for a lady. The newer Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor would likely get my vote if my wife hunted on foot as much as I...

    Great post, I love it. People just can't understand what you mean unless they have lived it.

    Here is a post I made years ago I still had saved on the computer. The question I was responding to...

    That's the kind of buck you really hope breaks a main beam this year so nobody wants to shoot him and he is still around next year. He will really be cool in a year or two. I put pics of mine up on...

    I hunt with a friend from Wyoming. No formal arrangement or anything, we just met on a prairie dog shoot years ago and we hit it off. I invited him to come down some time, and then he invited me to...

    Great buck, Congratulations. I'm real impressed you got self-taken pics like that in the dark too, that isn't easy!

    I got mine with a muzzle loader last week and am not sure what I will do all...

    Great deer guys, always neat to see.

    Last year and this year's trail cam pics of the one I got yesterday with my muzzle loader. I think he must have injured himself last year, he had a goofy rack...

    I have an older Leupold RX 1000 without DNA. It is ok, and should be fine for what you do. I can't reliably range a silo in front of my house at 710yds with it. I splurged and got the Leica Geovid...

    I have used the lighted reticle, but not when I would have required it to make the shot. It was late in legal shooting hours on a cloudy evening, but I could still make out the crosshairs in the...

    I haven't had the chance to look through the 50mm Razor spotter yet. I have the Nikon ED50 and have loved it for several seasons. The little spotter has been excellent for me. I'd also consider...

    Maybe try the Primos rapid pivot bipod. I use these in various heights on my rifles I pack in the Eberlestock packs.

    I will have different ones next season. Traded my 8x56 Zeiss in on Leica 10x42 Geovid HD-B bino/rangefinder combo. Today I made a deal to trade my 10x42 Zeiss in for 15x56 Swaro SLC's. The Zeiss...

    I had a Leupold RXIV 1000yd rangefinder with the TBR but not the newer DNA mode. I had trouble with it last year ranging in very cold weather past 400yds on game. I always had trouble past...

    After using the scope over the weekend glassing some deer and other things I really like having the 60x. We got a rain shower that cooled the air and dampened the ground reducing the dust in the...

    I just unboxed my new HD-ATS 20-60x80 and looked through it for the first time. The heat waves were terrible right now, I will check it again later. I'll let you know how it works after checking it...

    I would have to adjust layers to the weather, but one thing I know I'd have in the pack is the HPG mountain serape. If I stopped for any length of time I'd get that sucker around my legs and feet...

    I have used the Kifaru Paratarp in the past, but just ordered a Megatarp. I like the floorless design to eliminate having a floor to clean. I have a separate bathtub floor I hope will fit the...

    I like to switch shoulders when carrying my rifle on a sling. I found that the safety on a 700 or the Colt light rifle I had with the same type safety would rub into the fire position against my...

    I've used RL22 in a 20" barreled 270. I can't remember the exact powder load, but it was the max load in the Nosler book so should be easy to find. It shot really well at an impressive 2950fps from...

    I've looked through an old Leupold and found it not quite as good as my Nikon ED50. I will say though that my eyes must really like the Nikon, because for me it outdoes lots of scopes it shouldn't....

    They seem to open a little slower and retain weight a little better than the accubonds in my experience. Depending on what you are shooting that can be good or bad. I think the accubond delivers...

    I've seen the 110 accubond hold up well to 257 weatherby velocity, it would be my first choice to try for an all around 25 cal bullet. 117 Sierra Gameking would likely be my second.

    I'd try a 300 with a good stout 180 or 200gr load and see if you can handle the recoil before purchasing one. A limbsaver pad can really help or a brake, but that adds length to your barrel without...

    For gear I am probably overboard on what I do, but I feel it pays. After hunting season I clean and put away all the gear I don't use for predator hunting or other shooting in some big totes so it...

    I shoot a 264 win mag loaded with 140gr Accubonds at 3000fps, or more recently 140gr Berger VLD's loaded to 2950fps. It is capable of more speed but it's real accurate there and my barrel should...
