    Hunting Canada

    The first time I hunted in Alberta was about 65 years ago and when I got there there was still ice on the Peace River. Shot giant white tail, mule and moose, Took out a nice griz all on my relatives farm with a 30-06.

    How far is too far?

    This is easy to answer...... You will get to know many things if you just stop and think about it for a while. Of course you can shoot anything on the planet that you want with a a modern 4 bore sxs made by that Smith in Austria, and with the 30,000 + foot pounds it puts out a good shot...

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    No way I'm a "tiny 10" slayer as it just ain't my thing and they look like pets to me, but when it was offered here by a long term member to whack the hell out of one with a big solid out of a 375 hh I had to try as I never shot one with a 300 buster before. Having no tiny 10 running about I...

    Best Deer Hunting Round, LOL!

    If a 50 grain round nosed lead bullet coming out of a 22 or hits a ground hog in the chest at 100 yards and blast a hole through him with tail straightening effects knocking him deader than Julius Ceasar then what size diameter weight, and velocity would it take for a deer.... and better yet...

    What would be your Dream Hunt!??

    My dream hunt? That's easy. To make a dream hunt possible I would select every guy here who has a real sense of humor, isnt full of himself, understands that an ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure and doesn't spew horse apples out his chops everytime he swills a few water glasses of...

    What is a proper "stopping rifle" and load for dangerous game?

    I can tell you what I have used, but I am not some braggard bwanna full of horse apples and attempting to tell anyone what to use on what. For me I can say that for the most part that if I have errors they have been made on the side of what I considered to be safety.....for the most part...

    How far is too far?

    There are many reasons why someone..... anyone..... can't hit their target and make a quick kill at a relatively long distance...... and with that people tend to make up a reason why some guy misses or wound at say 350 yards. But what about those who miss, wound and no matter how many bullets...

    Best Deer Hunting Round, LOL!

    As I am an eater of meat , not wanting to waste any I want to take all reasonable shots at the head or the neck. It appears to me that very many people here seem to resist the idea of taking those kinds of shots and some of them appear to have the same objections and say that they in number...

    Pre-64 Winchester M70 - 9.3x64?

    A clean cut guy brought a pre64 in to the crowded store on a really nice Saturday afternoon in the late 80s chambered in 264 which put a smile on my face. He had a great story of how his father had it custom made in 1950 and then was struck feeble by a illness that he contracted in the Pacific...

    Best Deer Hunting Round, LOL!

    Yes! The truth..... nice to see and I tip my hat to Bruce, Every year I and a brother from Alabama take a late spring trip to Pennsylvania to slaughter ground hogs before the crops grow too high. It rained quite a bit that week and we set up one of those fold up tent tops with a plastic table...

    More thoughts on 9.3x64

    I think that if it weren't for some of the "real" gun slingers around the world who frequent this site many of the fine old rounds would have disappeared and ones that are not being heavily pushed by major gun manufacturers would have never been heard of. I tip my ragged old ball hat to you all

    My 600 Overkill

    I built my ok over a decade ago and it has never made it to africa and chances are never will with me anyway as my shot clock is running out. It has made it out of the country and with one well placed 1000 grain pre segmented bore riding hot welded lead core stopped my guide from becoming a...

    Tell me why buying a Rifle chambered in 6MM Remington is stupid

    I have the 244 and 6mm just different twists. If I am killing animals for meat I go out of my way to skull or neck them as to not waste meat and have found that the 6mm doesn't take the whole head off like the 25 06 or the 264 wm does on ocassion. What ruined the popularity of the 244 was the...

    Caliber 30-30 use in Africa???

    I imagine that if someone had a mind to they could take out some great cats with a 30-30 and if charged with that task I would take a head shot, but no matter who was backing me up with whatever it really isn't my caliber of choice for anything that has the potential of adding me to his...

    AR-type Rifles

    I remember tossing some 30 round mags to a brother and saying ,"now you can miss ten more times before you gotta reload". For many years now I have been selling guns and ammo to people who appeared to be arming themselves for some apocalyptic hoedown and to listen to them its easy to figure...

    Dangerous Game Rifle Lubrication ideas-Grease or not?

    Grease most surely has gotten a very bad name one the years from when it was slicking up the wheels of Conestoga wagons. Fortunately I doubt that any grease is made with clay and oil any longer. Though some of it is still made with animal fats and such which means acids. Everyone says that...

    Is there such a thing as too big?

    Very true, but no matter where you hunt.... no matter what you shoot anywhere in this world you will have people who simply blast away " at" an animal with absolutely no idea where they are going to hit it..... if anywhere at all.

    Blaser 500 Jeffery

    I never said a word about the r8 until I shot one, though I have seen people singing its praises and never as much as held one. I have heard many dislocate their jaws yammering on and on about how fast you can get multiple rounds out the end of the pipe and it has always made me wonder why the...

    Is there such a thing as too big?

    A great big black bear came running at light speed after about 8 shots sounded. I knocked the safety off and put a quickened 350 grain rnjsp hit him broadside festooning his shreads organs into the low slung sparse bushes. The bear immediately face planted and lay there deader than Julius...

    My new and first Remington 700

    Hello Master Melvin, Very happy for you getting that rifle in that caliber and round. And though the 308 is a fine accurate round from the factory in military surplus it is loaded about as hot as is safe. And though many a 06 gets loaded hot to 300 mag velocities with just minor pressure sign...

    Caliber 30-30 use in Africa???

    At one time the win 94 in 30-30 was the cats meow for eastern wtd. So it should work right famously on any animal its approximate size and weight. The 30-30 has a bit more power at 100 yards than a .44 mag at the muzzle and if chambered in a single shot with the right barrel and scope it can...
