    One Last Elephant Hunt - Changes In The Wind

    I know that Mefloquine can cause upset stomach, cause nightmares to the point of hallucinations. Never had any problems with malerone. It can make you sensitive to bright sunlight or possible upset stomach. I and any one hunting with me have always taken Malerone with no side effects. Two of my...

    Barnes TSX review

    I have switched from Barnes to Hornady CX. I find they perform consistently better. 6.5, 270,7mm and 30. Also they make an ECX for slower European calibers similar to the LRX. And usually available.

    Consensus on Length of Pull

    With rifles lop is not as critical unless it's overly short or overly long. More important is where your scope sits. Every time you pick up your rifle you should have a full view thru the scope. If you have to move your head like a chicken pecking corn the scope is not positioned proper. Second...

    Thoughts about Leupold VX-3HD

    I always take one or two of the Leupold mounting tools with me and leave them at Camp when I leave. About $20 ea. Have the Allen wrenches, flat blade, and torx. Fits most any rings and bases. About the size of a regular pocket knife. One is in my daypack all the time.

    9.3x62 - Large or Large Magnum Primers?

    I use LR in mine with no issues. After 65grs I might try both. At 70grs always LRM.

    One rifle for North American big game?

    If you're not going to hunt Grizzly or Kodiak Bears the 270 is perfect. I shoot a lot of guns but my 2 go to are 270 and 7mag.

    Leupold fxii 2.5 power fail

    I agree with WAB and Tundra. There is no way that much separation could occur between the rings. Good news is Leupold has the best and fastest warranty of any manufacture. I sell a lot of Leupolds and very, very, very rarely have any issues! But when I do Leupold is fast and no questions asked...

    Tuffpak 1050 Lock Style

    I have used the internal key lock on my Tuffpac alot. Have been asked a couple of times to open it but no big deal. I used a different case with padlocks once and they cut the TSA (marked) locks. I asked the agent why. He said they didn't have the master keys for my lock. I said I thought you...

    Solid bullets for Buffalo? Yes or No?

    I believe that years ago a solid was necessary due to the fact that soft point were too frangible. I shot one Buff with my 375 and 300gr solids. Two up the butt. One frontal shot straight thru the heart and a couple more body shots to put him down. I will never again use solids for Buff. TSX, A...

    Flat point copper solids for hunting mule deer?

    I would be very leary of your choice of cartridge. Why not your 30-30 with some lever evolution from Hornady. Thru the ribs not the shoulders. I would rather ruin a little meat and go to the Grocery store and buy 10lbs of hamburger than risk losing an animal.

I have replaced several for my customers including one of the forum members. Supply was slow but I am now...
