    AR-type Rifles

    I would also recommend Barrett Rec 7 DI. It's not cheap (around $1700) but it is a very well made, high quality firearm that is extremely accurate.

    Is the CZ 550 Gone or Not?

    I doubt they will go up that high, there a zillion of them floating around.

    9.3x62 Optics

    I use a Trijicon Accupower 2.5-10X56 Illuminated. If you have not looked through a Trijicon do yourself a favor, the glass is on par with the Germans. For the money they are one of the best values in scopes/

    Terms I am tired of hearing

    Irrelevant and not true (I have shot single point "Murder Bock" Roe Deer) Antlers are shed annually, horns are never shed.

    Terms I am tired of hearing

    Horns when referring to Deer Antlers. People, esp. experience hunters and guides who constantly refer to Antlers as Horns. I cringe every time I hear someone say "Elk Horns" or "Deer Horns" Deer have Antlers

    Barnes bullet expansion problems

    I had great result with barnes TSX factory loads (.308) in Africa on Plains Game. The guide told to only bring those. They shoot great out of my Browning X-Bolt, very, very accurate. When I lived in Germany, not so great on red/Roe/Fallow. Germany mandated "Lead Free" ammo on all federal land...

    Eland, is the .308 Winchester enough gun?

    In my limited experience hunting Elk, everyone thinks the .300 win mag is minimum and .338 is the preferred round. I heard a lot of stories of people taking Elk at 400-600 yds. What I actually saw in my camp: The 6 or 7 other hunters all missed the first Elk they shot at (between 250-400 yds)...

    Eland, is the .308 Winchester enough gun?

    I hunted Africa twice, each time the guidance from the outfitter and guide was the same. "Bring your favorite Deer rifle that you can shoot well. And use only Barnes bullets" Both said the biggest issues they had with American hunters is them thinking they need a .30 cal magnum and not being...

    Eland, is the .308 Winchester enough gun?

    I shoot Elk with .308 and no issues. Elk are large but not esp. tough. Just like Moose. I have been Colorado for 5 years and most hunters seem to think Elk need a .338 Lapua mag. I don't understand why.

    I noticed that also, I guessing it's because the Zero Stop is only on the Elevation but not 100% sure.

    Overbuilt Optics

    A lighted reticle doesn't help identify the target, it helps distinguish between the reticle and target. If someone shot another person thinking it was a game animal then a lighted reticle had nothing to do with it. Rule 4 "Know your target and what's behind it" Lighted reticles are very...

    Muzzle Brake Use

    If go to the range and I see a rifle with a brake I go to another lane or just leave. They are obnoxious and still dangerously loud, even with hearing protection. Either get a smaller caliber or spend the time and $ and get a suppressor (if it's legal in your state)

    Colorado Liberal Destruction

    I have only been in Colorado 3 years and can already see the decline in civil liberties. Less than a week until the unconstitutional "Red Flag" law goes into effect. The hunting here is a total PIA, you can't get tags without preference points, fees go up each years (doubled the Waterfowl stamp...

    Ronald Reagan On Guns

    And Hillary would looking out for you rights? And, what exactly has the "Old" Republican party done for the 2A? What did Regan do for gun owners? Or Bush, or the other Bush? No hearing protection Act, no national CCW reciprocity, nothing. At least Trump's kids trophy hunt.

    Ronald Reagan On Guns

    Yup. He signed the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 which gave up new machine guns for basically nothing. Post-Presidency he supported and actively campaigned for both the Brady Bill and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. He was no friend of the 2A...

    First time bear hunt?

    Just wanted to know what you paid, your "reasonable" may not be to other folks. I am always wary of outfitters who do not list prices, makes me think of "If you have to ask you can't afford it" attitude.

    First time bear hunt?

    It seems most folks look down at hunting Bear over bait. Here in Colorado, years ago via proposition (the worst way to govern in my opinion) they ended Spring Bear hunting and all Bear hunting over bait/hunting Bear with dogs and Black Bear population has exploded. I don't know how much was due...

    Silencer/Moderator Use

    I use one for hunting on my .308 (it also fits on my ARs and .22-250) I only see advantages. I had no issues re-zeroing (less than an inch difference in elevation, 1.5 inches or so windage) The noise reduction is great, esp. as you age. The .30 cal can I use is long and heavy so you have to plan...

    What's Going on in Vermont?

    I am not so sure. I bet the insane regulations most states impose (my state of Colorado is a good example) turn a lot of folks off. The Big Game guide here is like a novel. CPW has classes on "how to navigate the draw" If you need classes on a draw system then it is far to complicated. I know it...
