    Good 350 legend options

    I have a Mossberg Partiot (about $400) leupold 350 legend scope (because well, just because..) Shot a management buck at about 60 yds. No complaints, I have no idea why the Mossberg is overlooked, but I think it's about the lowest priced rifle in 350 L? Mine's just over 1 inch at 100 with...

    Alaska hunt...

    My experience was opposite, I was stationed in Fairbanks many years ago, People came up and bought 300 win mags, saw how expensive hunting is, even for a resident, and sold those rifles CHEAP. One of my friend made a bunch of money buying and selling rifles. I used a 7mm, and I bought a...

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

    I grew up in NE FL, now live in Coastal GA, For years I used my 7mmRM. Most shots were under 60 yds, you don't need a magnum for that. I got a 243 and absolutely love it! If I'm hunting power lines or large fields I use a 300 win mag because that's the rifle I feel the most comfortable...

    Thoughts On Sako Fiberclass 375 H&H

    I own several SAKOs (older models) NEVER had any issues with triggers or ejection. For the right price, I'd jump on it. Not sure what the process is to get a rifle from NZ to RSA?

    Is civil war possible in America

    I read an interesting piece on this: When the protesters go after Arlington, that's the spark. Then it's all "Americans" versus the anti-Americans.

    Building a .375 for extended use

    I'm pretty sure that's why the 375 Steyr was designed and produced, 375 out of a standard action, lower recoil. Or go with a 375 Ruger, should run fine in a semi-auto. Feeding will require a little tweeking.

    Which .375 Rifle?

    SInce you already own a 550 I'd stick with that in a larger caliber - makes the transition easier and familiar. Think of it this way: If you've ever shot birds with a winchester, remington, mossberg, beretta and tried to switch guns: The controls are different and, when you're hunting...

    New Zealand Hunt Firearm Import - safe storage requirement

    I'm sure (as a previous owner) that when you are offered a "free" service, making a purchase is much appreciated. We used to do free transfers for police/military; too many times the people would use our "free" service and leave, never to be seen again. The guys that bought a box of ammo...

    Best beginner brand/reloading kit for big rifle cartridges?

    375 zero distance

    100 yds dead on and a leupold 2.5X8, I can shoot 200-250 with no problem, beyond that, let's get closer and HUNT!! I had a 1.5X5 but as I got older, I feel like more power is helpful, Plus it helps to discern of I really have a clear shot or if something is between me and the vitals.

    .270 vs .280

    Marketing, Plain and Simple - sell guns. a 308 will bounce off an animal but a '06 will drop them dead and a 300 mag will drop them and their brother even deader. No animal is going to take a shot from a 6mm/6.5/7mm/277/308 from a well constructed bullet, hitting in the vitals, traveling...

    Smart man RayB, If say 3/4 of the world's (that's right WORLD'S) population is dead, then those left alive need to ban together and build on their strengths. Rebuild, not continue to kill because someone wants what you have and vise versa. Food, shelter, medicine, PURIFIED water...

    300 Win Mag options?

    You don't NEED a 300 Win Mag; you NEED to talk to your PH and see what he recommends and thinks. Sad truth is in most of the Plains Game hunting , your standard "deer rifle" will be darn near perfect - despite what marketing and advertisers (and anonymous internet uses) tell us: 30 caliber...

    Yeah, booze, DRUGS , caffeine and nicotine. Read One Second After - about an EMP strike. Great read. As far as guns and ammo, how many guns can you carry and how much ammo? Also, what about resupply. BAck when 22LR was so hard to get, people were convinced ammo would be currency.

    Not a prepper, but would like to know where they are. I assume they will be the first to fall and leave behind a bunch of stuff I could use....... I am a fan of Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead - purely for entertainment.

    Recommendations On Rifle For My Wife

    Fastrig - I used to be in the business. Depending on your wife's size, look at the Mossberg Youth Models. MOST of the ladies I helped purchase a rifle and some I taught to shoot, all seemed to prefer a youth model over a "ladies" model. It just fit them better. The Mossberg is a lot of rifle...
