    I couldn't agree more.

    When I was a kid and learning to hunt, the older hunters used 7MM Rem Mags, probably because at one time it was all the rage. When I decided I needed a bigger...

    If you hand load there might be more options.

    I think that the guys advising you to go with the 7MM-08 Rem are on to something. The 7x57 has killed everything on our continent, so...

    I've had to help two friends track bucks. Neither were found. It was heartbreaking.

    While I have never had to, I'd help anyone, even hunters I don't know, track wounded big game. Sure, I'd like to...

    That bull came out of San Juan County, UT.

    I've heard that there are huge bulls in the county. It's altogether another concept to actually see them. There's no doubt in my mind that...

    Hi Musket Man,

    That makes perfect sense. I didn't categorize your listed cartridges by rim. Once you've pointed it out to me, it fell right in to place.

    Musket Man,

    BTW,

    The bull's tongue never protruded from its mouth, which, in my experience, is an indicator of a heart-shot animal.
