    That is the biggest obstacle we are facing right now. We are not set up in our homes and farms for weather this cold or snow like this either. 2000 was the last year it was this cold here and we were 2.5 weeks without power then with no generators. We had to pull all the animals into one barn...

    Grew up with one of those in the kitchen along with glass lamps when the power was out. There was no such thing as the luxury of us having a generator back then lol. Was actually thinking of the old kerosene heater the other day lol. It’s out in the shed somewhere still if we ever need it again.

    I thought about going bow hunting earlier since our season is still open til the 28th but I went down the road to the store and there were vehicles flying down the road way to fast, sliding through ditches, crossing my lane...I decided I’m not getting out in this heading across the mountain to...

    Got taken

    Hard to tell from the pics...looks as if 3 different factory loads have been put into same box. Remington brass on most and the bullet in the pics appears to be factory Core-Lokts...also looks like maybe a couple Winchester brass and for sure a couple federals. The bent tips could be caused by...

    This is a very nice setup for someone looking to get into handgun hunting. These are very accurate and beautifully put together guns. Great price on a package deal too. I have more than this invested in my .44 mag setup I hunt with. I would have jumped all over this back when I was putting my...

    New Catalog For Marlin Rifles By Ruger

    I’d like one in 44mag to go with my pistol I hunt with sometimes. I have a 1895GBL and it is one of my favorite rifles. It is so fun to shoot and surprisingly very accurate for a lever gun.

    Need Bullets

    Midway USA did have 180gr TSX in stock yesterday...I got some for my 308
  27. Whacker

    So the 308 Win seems approved by AH, what about the rifle?

    I had only suggested the savage because it looked to meet your specs very closely. If I were making the decision for myself I would probably be looking at a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight because I love their smooth actions, accuracy, and stocks because the Kimber would be a bit out of my...

    300 Grain A frame 375 H&H

    Sry idk what happened with addressing that to the wrong person above...been a very long tiring day I guess I apologize. I was looking though and the old Load you had looked very much identical to some 375 Ruger loads I’ve seen...think it’s possible it was a misprint in the manual?

    300 Grain A frame 375 H&H

    @Kevin Peacocke I would be careful with that old load shown. Current load data from Hodgdon website on IMR-4350 shows 75.0gr as a compressed max load with 300gr Swift bullet. Hodgdon data is normally what I use as it is higher normally than my Hornady book. Here is a copy of the Hodgdon load...

    So the 308 Win seems approved by AH, what about the rifle?

    Actual weight I saw listed of the .308 was 5.8lbs.

    So the 308 Win seems approved by AH, what about the rifle?

    The only thing I can think of that will come close to meeting those specs will be the savage ultralight with the carbon wrapped barrel. They have a 22 inch barrel I believe and come in right at 6lbs. Lightest option I can think of that fits the budget and weight...they have threaded barrel as...

    I'll probably have to give up on this idea

    Those look great!! Very cool idea. I have an idea with no clue if it will work or not so some experiments may be at hand. Some parts grow and live off of the proteins within that keep them healthy from the and nails come to mind on us...but antlers I have no clue. It could be due to...

    Opinions on the Bergara B-14 HMR "6.5 Creedmoor"

    All that matters at the end of the day is if you are happy with it or not. While the 6.5 is by far not my favorite caliber, that is personal preference and it is definitely capable of taking an antelope. I have shot a few Bergara rifles and the ones I have shot have been very accurate. One thing...

    Desirable Powders For 300 Grain Swift A-frames, For .375 H&H Magnum?

    I would also add Winchester Staball 6.5 to the list. Reloading data can be found for it on Hodgdon website and it can be found some places still since it’s a newer powder and not a lot of people have loads worked up with it yet

    First Dangerous Game Rifle - Struggling to decide

    The biggest difference from a reliability standpoint is cycling the action out of shooting position. If the rifle remains straight up and down then either should cycle reliably with no issues. The CRF design comes in to play when you fire a shot off and have to cycle the action as you either...

    First Dangerous Game Rifle - Struggling to decide

    One suggestion I would make on the Vanguard rifle...not sure in the .375 but all of the Vanguard actions I have seen are push feed. For the same price up to about 1250 or so you should be able to find a Model 70 Alaskan or Safari Winchester and will have a much smoother action that is a CRF...

    Suppression/Silencers On 375HH Rifles

It’s a sweet package deal I would have jumped all over if I hadn’t just bought my 375. I...

    There is a nice Caprivi for sale in the classifieds section here. Yes it is a very beautiful rifle and would definitely handle anything you ever need one for. If I were looking for one right now I’d give it a serious thought.

    First Dangerous Game Rifle - Struggling to decide

    I bought my first one a Model 70 375 H&H last year. I absolutely love it this far but have only used it on smaller non dangerous game to this point. It will be a slight step up in recoil from the 300wby but nothing hard to handle at all. For anything up to buffalo I will stay right there as I...

    I have always bought 100 rounds at first when I started loading each caliber and then as I shoot them I clean and resize the brass. Whenever I start seeing a couple getting bad I get another bag of 50 and keep going. I end up with a couple hundred rounds after a couple years that way seems to...
