    NRA, worth joining?

    Quit being gullible with the NRA. I supported those bastards for almost 40 years. The last 20 were a total waste. But think as you will especially while living in California.

    Two new old calibers

    I thought it would have more recoil than it does. I've shot both 120s and 140s through it. I will be focusing on the 120s for hunting deer and pigs here in TX. I believe the faster 120s will expand better at the lower velocities of the 14” barrel. I had a 10” 300 savage that was dreadful to...

    Make up my Mind

    Porting is ok if you don't mind going deaf, if you get it get a removable brake and a thread cap for when not in use. Limbsaver works well, Mercury tube a bit over rated. If a guided hunt make sure your guide knows of a brake he just may tell you "not on my watch".

    AV action is as Sako as any other. 300 Weatherby ammo is a bit costlier yes and a bit more potent but if you think you need it then get it if you handload you can tone it down if desired.

    High Desert Dove?

    Newberry Springs is better than Cady as is the Mojave river just before Cady, since the dry river has always been a flight path though the area, you just need to know how to get into it. ;) My Father,Uncle and I were good friends with the care takers of Camp Cady back in the 50'-70's at one...

    Which Rifle Scope for 30-06?

    Just for clarification reasons... A scope does not gather light it merely transmits light, though the light is enhanced through the quality of glass and coatings and good glass and coatings far out weigh any and all high power settings, high Magnification does NOT make a scope brighter.
  491. Jim n Texas

    Which Rifle Scope for 30-06?

    For $300 it would be hard to beat a Leupold VX-2 3x9-40, Nikon Monarch or a Minox, check for the Minox on SWFA sample list.
