    We spent a LOT of time on our spotters judging antelope on our last trip. I'd almost put a good spotter ahead of binos for antelope. We went to our unit 3 days before season to scout, spent a lot...

    I'd lean toward the 270 since you mentioned muleys and whitetail also. I have used both the 243 and 270 with good results on many animals. The heavier bullet the 270 will push at the same speed...

    I use them in my 264 and have used them and seen them used in a 243. What others have said is true. I got to test the 87gr 243 loads when they sent them out to people for field testing. I have...

    The RUM takes to much powder and adds to much recoil to offset the performance it offers over the regular 7 RM for me. I think lots of other hunters feel the same way. Also Nosler's reloading...
