    Is the 275 Rigby up to larger Plains Game like kudu?

    Everyone needs a .275, even if it’s marked 7X57!

    Okaaayy treat them like cats! Put their food (which is Purina Cat Chow) & water in a bowl in a corner, put a litter box in their bedroom which is the garage, put them in their bedroom at 9pm local time. That should do it!

    Back country carry gun

    This goes back to 2018, but the lesson is still NEVER separate yourself from your handgun. Wouldn’t hurt to give people with you a basic lesson in its use.

    Practice session with the Ruger #1 450/400

    I have used a 2” piece of bicycle inner tube under the scope & put a round on each side of the bbl. Of a #1 .375 H&H Mag. It holds them firmly enough to withstand the recoil of a .375 H&H Mag. Be sure to zero with ctgs in place.

    Short action magnums

    A long time ago a friend had one in .350RM, recoil was, shall we say, brisk.

    Advice on Factory Regulation of Chapuis X4 in .30-06

    Wow Tom, beautiful rifle. I think a 180gr bullet would optimize the .30-06. Won’t blow shoulders off deer/elk up close, & effective to 300yds without a lot of holdover.

    Back country carry gun

    Or Grizzly tracks hunting Elk! Packing a handgun while hunting with a rifle isn't foolish, it's prudent! There are many times when hunting you put your rifle down.

    Back country carry gun

    Some of our fishing guides are going to the Glock 10mm. The 10mm is gaining quite a following here & Glocks carry a lot of ammo. We have grizzlies in most of our fishing areas.

    Your favorite hunting rifle of all time

    I still like & hunt with the the .45-70, but load it down. It’ll still take anything here in Montana.

    Your favorite hunting rifle of all time

    Be careful rechambering to something like that. I once loaded a #1 .45-70 to 1800fps with a 500gr Hornaday JSP (actual chronographed) recoil kicked the reticule out of a Redfield scope. It was brutal.

    The bore looks larger than .358? Meant to read .375?

    Survey : Your Favorite Factory Loaded Ammunition

    Let’s not leave out small game/varmints. I really like Federal.22lr HP. I will use solids if HPs are unavailable, I just have to really place my bullet well. I love hunting our small ground squirrels in the summer.

    New Aussie bullet

    I don’t want to drift this thread, but just want to say I’m very happy for my friends in Australia who now have better access to a great bullet. I really enjoy reading about other countries from those who are there. Thanks.

    Do I need a 7mm Mag

    Awwww Bob & I agree on most things. That we kinda disagree about the usefulness of the .243 is we agree to disagree. No animosity, I do believe as Bob does, people use it above its capabilities & use the wrong bullet at times.

    Do I need a 7mm Mag

    Let’s have some .375 fun

    What’s the smallest animal you’ve used your .375 H&H to take? I’ll start, years ago I would occasionally shoot Colombian Ground squirrels with mine. It was thorough!

    338s Are A Great Caliber

    I have a friend who shoots the .338/06 & is very tickled with it. Elk melt at the shot!
  46. F

    Do I need a 7mm Mag

    I’ll just speak of the smaller calibers. You can do most everything with the .243. I really like the 22-250, the Hornaday 55gr V Max will not exit a Badger, should be great for coyotes. It’s a very fun ctg. I’d get one!
