    A Sad Day Yesterday. Had to Put My Old Dog Down!

    Sorry to hear that you have lost your great friend Ridgewalker. Whenever you start caring for something there is always pain at the end. I too have lost several pups over the years and it is a heartbreaking experience. They remain forever in you heart. After we lost our Jack Russell a couple of...

    Experience shooting small plains game and deer with big bores?

    Shot my last deer with a 500 grain soft point out of my .458WinMag at 35 yards. I have never seen a deer drop so fast. Much more fun to use larger caliber for hunting and there is very little meat damage.

    A Genuine Question : Why Is Hornady So Hated?

    I never use factory ammo and have used Hornady components extensively. I have had great results with their Interbond projectiles. Good life out of their brass in .375H&H, .458WinMag and .470Nitro.

    Best Recoil Pad for .470 NE

    I recently replaced the KickEez recoil pad on my .470 as it began to deteriorate quite quickly - splits appearing. I put a Decelerator on it, as I have had good results and long life with these pads on a number of bolt guns that have had extensive use over many years.

    Binocular harness recommends?

    I can highly recommend the Kuiu harness. Used one in Africa recently and it kept the dust and crap off the lenses of my Leica Geovid HD-B’s giving protection that a simple harness or next strap cannot offer. The PH thought it an outstanding piece of kit.
