    For deer I like a light rifle, so lately its been my custom, Rem, 700, 7mm SAUM with 140 or 160 grain Nos. Accubonds. My backup is a Browning A-bolt II, 270 WSM, with 140 grain Nos Accubonds as well. If I hunt the copper only areas, I like to shoot the 140 grain Barnes TTSX.
    This California forkie was taken with my 7mm SAUM in Zone D-14 and was a true unicorn. When I caped the head the skull looked like a doe on the left side, no evidence of an antler ever growing there. This buck weighed approximately 200 lbs on the hoof, which is big for southern Cali standards.

    Again the bow gets the knod in the early season but from there on out it either the Weatherby Accumark in .257 Weatherby or the Model 700 Titanium in .308 win. Both spit triple shocks and each is equally wicked!

    270win., 130grs, if talking mulies less than 500yds, I don't think it gets much better.

    I think I need a newer mulie rifle though, it very well could be in the same caliber just lighter, or perhaps the 270wsm.

    I'll probably have a .300wsm sheep style rifle before I get around to the new mulie rifle however, so there's a chance I'd just use that.

    I have an old 300 Savage lever action that my uncle gave me 10-15 years ago. I like it because its open sights, good to have in the truck, atv, horse etc. Don't have to worry about knocking a scope off. Pretty cool rifles!

    Havent had it real long myself. Got a deal on it because someone drilled 3 holes in the reciever for a scope mount. I put a leupold VXII scope on it now. Before that I had a Remington 700 in 270 and i started out with a pre 64 model 70 in 243 with open sights. I still have all 3 of them.

    Do you hunt much with a smoke pole? (your handle is musket man any how haha) Thats all I used to do in WA until I got fed up with the one week early season and limited late season and switched to bow.
