Gun and Game
Told my wife I needed another .22 so she bought me this Husquvarna 22 HP tractor to use around the barn. It matches up well with the Henry orange case.
I have done several barrel swaps on Savage rifles before and this one was the worst ever. Broke my vise and one of my buddies borrowed me his action wrench to finish the job. I finally broke the barrel nut loose and the barrel started to come out then it got stuck and was hard to unthread from the action. The threads look great I'm not sure what's wrong, but the new barrel wont thread in but a couple turns. So I emailed ER Shaw to see what their turn around time is for barrel installation, hopefully it will be back before deer season ends.
By now you've probably heard that Walmart is going to stop carrying AR-15's and Semi-Auto Shotguns. In fact, if you're in the market, now would be the time to visit your local Walmart and pick up one.
Walmart’s Senior Director for Corporate Communications Kory Lundberg confirmed Walmart is stopping the sale of all AR-15s or semi-auto shotguns that hold seven or more shells. He says politics is not playing role in in the changing of inventory.
I'vebeen debating on my next deer rifle I was thinking of getting the ruger american ranch in 300blk out, or the handi rifle in .300 but 7.62x39 is a lot cheaper and in would like a semi auto carbine just in case one of those shtf moments.....and there fun at the range. As the mini14 300blk isn't available for NY yet I've come up with two options an SKS or the river mini thirty, I've owned both before but the mini thirty I owned I had back when I was 13 And it was an older model. Now the new model comes in stainless /synthetic which is awesome for me cuz I'm not the nicest to my guns.
If you guys were hunting whitetail deer in Tennessee where shots could go from 10 to about 450 yards, which would you choose and why? According to Remington's ballistic tables, the two rounds are extremely close. To me, the advantage of the .260 is that it is short action, so it is slightly more compact and that it kicks quite a bit less than the .270. Also the .260 has a wider range of bullets (100-160gr). The .270 has availability and is slightly higher in terms of velocity and energy.
first the excuses
for the first 3 shots i had a sticker i was using as an aimpoint
but then it fell off
and since 300 meters is a long walk
i just aimed at where i thought it had been
needless to say
that didnt work out so good.
so while my first three shots is by FAR the best i have done in my life
the other seven were all over the place in comparison
ten shots group
4.865 inches at 300 m
