Polev's bullet ("pulja Poleva") -

(old - left - is the best)
The bullet is perfect in accuracy, including from the choke, and trouble-free in reloading. In a sense, this is Brenneke at a modern technical level.

7,62x54R. Like 308, but more usable in double.
Not everyone knows that from this caliber you can shoot 308 cartridges, especially in a brass brass. True, you need a strong ramrod for reloading.

9.3x64Breneke

Favorites . . .
22-250 - Perfect for most animals. Hits well above it's weight class.
257 Roberts (Ackley version too) - Awesome
9.3x62 - Taylor & Aagaard put it succinctly, a work horse that always gets the job done. All time favorite.
For Africa
416 Remington
9.3x62
257 Weatherby
* 257 caliber rifles produce dramatic results on game animals.
* 9.3 - hands down, if I was limited to just one caliber.
* 416 - well, you just gotta have a heavy.

30-30, the rifle that started my love for Hunting, and kept me up reading old outdoor life magazines in my youth.
.270 my go to, has never ever. Let me down.
.350 rem Mag, most underrated caliber ever made. It hits Big Game like a sledgehammer, and the ballistics don’t back it up. It just does......

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
