    I just looked through their offerings. It looks like you can pick up a nice piece of lumber pretty cheap.

    Moving to Florida- which rifle(s) and caliber(s)?

    The 7mm mag caliber will work fine. But, the rifle might not be the best choice. 7mm mags generally have long barrels, and long barrels are a pain in the butt when trying to sneak through some thick brush. 7mm-08, 308, or 6.5 would be great for the short receiver and shorter barrels. I have iron...

    New to me CZ 550 9.3x62

    That is a perfect looking rifle. The stock looks slimmer than my American stocks. What modifications did you make? What does the rifle weigh?

    Elk hunt gear?

    Recommendations depend on many factors. Will you be packing your elk out? Do you just need a day pack to carry extra clothing, water, etc? Will you be hunting in the mountains? You have to have the right gear to deal with varied weather, but I argue a Hunter should never make compromises when...

    Ruger M77 Alaskan vs Guide Gun

    I like the Hogue as well. It is just a sturdy, and good-looking stock, and I really needed that slip-resistant rubber hunting the North Georgia mountains in freezing rain. I love the setup and am thinking about having one built with the same features and dimensions, but in 9.3x67.

    Obsession with tactical rifles & equipment

    This is a sad reality to me for several reasons. Now, first I will say that I hunt with rifles that are walnut with blued steel. I also hunt with synthetic and stainless, especially in the North Georgia mountains. I also have no problem with people doing their own thing. This apparent...

    Red Stag Gores Hunter

    I think some bit of the criticism is valid. His camara was on the animal. I assume he was using a GoPro and it was mounted on his head or chest. If so, then he was looking in the direction of the buck. Plus, he was talking about something interesting in front of him, so I think he was square to...

    Red Stag Gores Hunter

    I don’t know the laws there, but it is called buckshot for a reason and people do still hunt deer with it when they are in some thick stuff and expect to jump bedding deer and have close shots at them moving quickly.

    CV 550 Front & Rear Sights

    These are new factory sights and have never been installed. They came with a 550 American in 9.3x62 that I no longer have. I think the rear sight is made by Williams, at least the sight looks like a Williams. The rear sight assembly is complete with both mounting screws. The front sight...

    Alaska Arms Rings & Leupold VX-1 3-9x40

    I agree. I think it is one of the best options for a quality scope on a budget. It is really light and can handle the recoil of a large caliber rifle.

    Alaska Arms Rings & Leupold VX-1 3-9x40

    Leupold VX-1 3-9x40. It is matte with a duplex reticle. The rings are Alaska Arms QD, 1 inch, medium height, and for Ruger M77 and Hawkeye rifles. Both fall under the category of “ain’t nothing wrong with them.” The rings held the scope to my Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan through three seasons in the...

    Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan In .416 Ruger

    This one was one of the early ones. It does not have a muzzle brake or a barrel band swivel stud. It is very accurate. Only 51 down the pipe, but it has been hunted. I have packed it through wilderness areas in both Idaho and Georgia, so it is not perfect. Nothing serious, just a couple of small...

    That I believe If that is the price it is because it is the market rate. If you can not find one cheaper it is because that is the market rate.

    Anyone loading .416 300gr Barnes TSX?

    An old post, but I shoot the 300 grain TSX in my 416 Ruger. The advantage, other than less recoil, is a flatter trajectory. Zeroed at 225 yards I am only 6 inches under at 300 yards. I got to use the 300 tsx on a small bear and a big whitetail this year and neither liked it very much. The bear...

    For Sale CZ-550 .308 In A Lux Stock

    I am selling a CZ-550 in .308 caliber. This is a .308 in the standard size action and came from the factory in a sporter stock. That stock went to my 9.3x62 stalking rifle project. The Lux stock the .308 is now wearing came from the 9.3x62. The barrelled action is very nearly perfect. It has...

    I do not know the manufacturer, but this rail is well made and functions properly. It is used and has varied minor scratches. I assume it would also work with a CZ- 557 as well. If anyone needs it I will ship it to you in the lower 48 for $35.00.

Additional pilots can be purchased at a reasonable price from PTG. The tool plus shipping was $80. I will ship it to the lower 48 for $50. I prefer...
