I have some springbok and impala capes that I would like to use on some barstools. I haven't bought the barstools yet, as I wasn't sure if the maker would supply them. If anyone could recommend somebody or has had this done before and can post pictures, im very interested.
Hey guys, I am moving in November and am in the middle of packing right now. I don't have a lot of stuff and will be moving everything via uhaul. However, how do I transport my mounts safely? I am literally only bringing clothes and a dresser in the uhaul since I flew down and purchased all my...
I’ve got a friend in TX who does hog hunts for $300 a person. This price includes rifle rental(with thermal) unlimited ammo and unlimited hogs. I will check if he’s still offering this. And it’s free range obviously
Finishing up my 7mag build and I have 2 decelerators…1” and .5”. Both feel pretty good I believe I’m somewhere in between the two. I know I can sand down the 1” to 3/4. However, with heavy clothing during hunting season the .5 may be more practical. I notice on a downward angle(tree stand) with...
Ive probably killed over 50 pigs at this point, my biggest being 300lbs with a bow. 7.62x39 my favorite pig caliber
Have a .40 on my waist for reassurance, friend of mine had a tusk go through his hamstring following up on a pig. Snake boots for the rattlers;)
It’s probably the plainest wood option because it’s the PH model, which is the only model within a thousand or two dollars of the Mauser. If you want a big game with similar wood grade level of the Mauser you’re looking at well above $20,000 USD.
Looking at the new Mauser 98's and Rigby's, it seems to me Mauser is way over priced. When comparing the Mauser 98 Magnum Expert 375 H&H and the Rigby Big Game PH 375 H&H, there is basically a $500 difference(excl. tax and fees). Yes, the Mauser may have a grade 5 walnut stock, but the Rigby's...
I don’t believe our line up would even compare but here goes nothing:
most dangerous I guess:
I think most peoples big 5 would be:
Through research it is said that the barrel needs to be brand new. However, if you clean the barrel the best you can, you may be able to do it. I believe you can’t have any carbon or gun powder residue.
Nitride will surface rust(after a few weeks of exposure) but never chip and cerakote won’t...
I was very disappointed with the cerakote. I had it don’t by a well known coater. However, I can’t put all the blame on him, as I haven’t been entirely gentle. My expectation of cerakote was the result of nitride. I thought it was forced into the the metal as nitride is. I will say you wouldn’t...
Alright so anyone who knows about cerakote has seen their cerakote vs. series, well I believe its complete BS. I tried Cerakoted for the first time and immediately chipped it off my barrel. Apparently, this is the strongest finish out there. However, bluing seemed to hold up better in the past...
I’ve been around enough bears:) I have taken them with a m700 I don’t feel as if it was unsafe or unreliable. I will add I have seen someone fairly recent almost lose their life from a grizzly because of a CRF action failure.
Why don’t clients like using the rem 700 for DG? I understand the perspective of push feed rifles. However, the likeliness of a malfunction is very low. An m16 extractor and dual ejectors takes away any extraction issues. I just want to know why more clients don’t use these rifles especially...
As I’ve stated in a previous post, I had purchased this 7mag new and it had a chamber issue. Rather than being the typical A-hole and selling it, I decided to build it! I kept it as a 7mm as it’s my favorite cartridge and just good for everything besides DG. The only thing OEM Is the 700 action...
