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...
I bought a couple blanks from someone here. Can’t remember who? It’s been a few years. Anyway I promised to post pics of what I’m doing. Heres the first one.
The piece was too small and I thought it was worthless but I was able to squeeze a pattern on and then add a piece to the grip cap area.😁...
Got a couple new barrels to
add to the T/C lineup.
Left to Right
22 hornet loaded.
30/30 case parent to the 7/30 waters.
30/30 ran through 7/30 die.
Fireformed and reloaded. 7/30 waters.
243 for comparison.
Did my Euro mount today.
I set it outside for a few weeks and let the bugs do their thing. Worked out well. Boiled in Dawn dish soap and water then hit it with the pressure washer a couple times.
Then boiled in a 40-60 mixture of peroxide and water then rinse and walla!
Yes I still have this.
If you or you know someone that might be interested let them see it.
Top loader holds 4 rounds
No bottom metal
On the heavy side 11lbs
Dies included but No scope.
$930 shipped to your FFL
Took the Savage for a spin today.
6 shot 100 yard group with an ooops.
Not my personal best but age is taking it’s toll on me. Don’t let people tell you Savages suck. Well at least their accuracy can be good.😉
100 gr Sierra BT
42 gr H 414
There is No secret answer. Every rifle and cartridge are different. Start at mid level and go from there as long as you don’t go over MAX don’t worry about pressures. Seating depth to the lands is your friend for good accuracy.
Finally pulled the trigger on a Texas whitetail. Been letting them all
walk even the Does. I hate dressing them
out. But here he is. Weatherby Vanguard in 308 and a hand loaded 150 gr Sierra Gameking bullet. I hit his right shoulder He was pretty much facing me Reason for large exit rearward.
I’ve hand loaded for about 30 years now.
Although I have shot copper bullets for accuracy testing I have chosen to use what I have used for many years Cup n core bullets for all my hunting needs. Reason I have no desire to figure it all out again ie great loads for many calibers. Cup and core...
Got a new used bow and just replaced the string and got a tune up. Ready to rock out to 40ish yards. Only has a 3 pin but I can cheat too.
Been rocking the recurve with no success as of yet. So it’s time to stretch the distance.
Bad shoulder helps none for either type bow.
243 Ackley imp. Gun, scope, dies and brass.
$1100 +$40 for shipping to your FFL

My son in law took his first buck yesterday, hunt took place from an elevated stand set within about a 4 acre clearing in the woods. Buck came out from around a very large oak tree with tons of underbrush. As soon as I saw the horns I whispered hey shoot that dude not even telling him where it...

Screw Mammoth all together head for the owens valley anywhere west of 395 holds good Bear. Try Onion Valley not at the top but from the valley up 3/4 of the way there. Too many people/hikers any higher. Hint, 7 pines
It's more covered than it looks. I studied the placement for two days before putting it there. That sunny patch behind the stand will be a small food plot as well as several out front and along a fence line. Remember it's Texas there are millions of deer. Besides it's a hard transition from a...
Yes but that severly disrupts my viewing. I predict the deer will come in from three sides. Im doing a little archery but mostly old school muxxle loader. I will be wrapping the basket with camo. Ps there is a pond right behind the trees with the dam at that end the deer water there. Cant see...
Well got a 200 acre property to hunt and fish. First we picked a location for a stand and feeder. This spot looks over a large part of good land with trees at three sides, fence lines and plenty of water. Owner cut hay and I gave him a hand since we got the lease for Free! We were able to bag a...
Well it started great before first light we could see the siloetes flying across the field when shooting time came BAM! Not to many birds we only had a few holdovers stay behind due to the Hurricane Harvey deal. Our area was doomed. However tbet did well in the Austin through Dallas area and I'm...
Whole different ball game I paid $99 for my 870's it's just what they cost then from now. They were never considered Cheap guns. Won't comment on the Glock because I would never own one regardless. It's not so much the plastic it's the quality of the cheap plastic and the crap internal parts...
I don't know what you reading but seriously use the search button over at Cal Guns One thing though calguns is very biased towards Remington 700 due to the tacticool trends and that even 7-11 and Big lots carries parts for them. LOL Remington has made I believe 3 crappy entry level rifles and...
History shows the remington low end rifles are JUNK! even the Save Axis is a better buy. The Ruger American gets good marks and most owners own more than one. But remember if you buy cheap you'll always have cheap. $100 more puts you on a nice rifle if you look around. Basic Remington, Savage...
I bought a Jobox and mounted in my truck. Ammo and guns, some guns had to go in tbe truck ran out of room. Moving co. Said NO ammo, gun powder, fuel, combustables. Sold the box when I got to my new state. Good luck.
In reality it could take several hunting trips guided or not, pay per hunt or not, public land or private before you even shoot something much less fill a freezer. Go out of state and increase your odds significantly.
Monache meadows is a joke and has been hunted out for years. Everyone hunts that area as well as cow canyon if you've heard of that. Hunt the front East side of the zone. Also look at Haiwee flats I believe that is in your zone.
Very hard to sell as a LOT unless you just want to dump them Cheap! sell separate and add that you will ship, It's very easy to do at a UPS HUB buyer pays all fees. If you don't ship you lose 50% or more of your buyers. Experience.
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".
OEM Sako rings, this gun is an early 80's model in 30-06 it used to be my favorite rifle, took my nicest deer with it from G-3. I've retired the rifle and hunt with my pre 64 Winchester 308 and Weatherby MarkV 257. I was going to rechamber this to 300 Win mag but the bolt could not be opened up...

Personal thing and they tried to screw me on a trade. They are no where near as cheap as many others though they claim they are or 110% money back only if you can prove you found something cheaper. Why hassle it just buy cheaper elsewhere.
24" x 14" x 48" and 35" tall. legs run $40+ high grade wood is $35+ per sheet or $20+ for 1/4 sheets for a one table deal, Box of screws $5, bottle of glue $5, finish as desired $10 and up. I router all edges of the top and the bottom supports for a nice detail finish. I finished my personal one...
It doesn't matter what they were fired in as long as you full length size them you can shoot them in any 308 chamber. NO two chambers are identical unless they are custom reamed by the same reamer from the same Gun Smith. IMO... I've been handloading for about 29 years.
You are just wasting ammo, Shoot it, keep it cool, clean it and be done. I am lucky enough have owned some high end custom made rifles from some of the best. NONE go through a break in regiment as none is required by the builders. If I believed it did something special I would most definitely do...
You have got sooooo much to learn. Sorry I can't help you! in fact probably know one could. GOOGLE is your friend on anything 10-22 I bought my first one two weeks after they came out but you probably weren't even on the face of the earth at the time. I've been around the block and learned as I...
Keep it as cool as possible, shade is good. Wrap it up for travel hang it in your garage an process it in due time no need to get it done ASAP!!!!!! within a couple hours. Leaving over night or two days is fine.

I trained my lab by dong the real hunt, actually I was a lucky fucker and she just did it by herself, No she's not a pro grade bird dog she is my companion but was one hell of a bird/Rabbit dog. She even tracked a Deer for me though I knew where it was she lead the way and went right to it about...
I would bet a bunch that is a lion. I have seen many and quite a few up close actually to close twice being stalked is a scary ordeal. Look at the shoulder and or hip as well as the girth of the tail, also the shape of the head at how wide the flat it is. It isn't a Kitty kitty and it certainly...
Yes it is a Savage action and a take off Savage Varmint barrel swap, kinda fancy for a Savage :imdumb: but hey I only own the one Savage so why not?
Caliber is 243 Ackley improved, re-chamber from standard version.
Well the rough cut was done by a stock duplicator as in the second pic from above, I did the reshaping of the butt stock, grip, fore arm and applied the stain and finish also stippled the grip. The entire forarm section from the grip out to the tip was 2 1/2" wide that's how I achieved the...
No longer displaying this and it's in the way, it's a cool conversation piece and fun to add different cartridges you find, this has some pretty cool ones even a couple from the Chocolate Mountains.
It's not a fail if your game dies and when you don't have to track it down, that said you couldn't pay me to use a copper bullet on a big game animal. I lost two pigs from Tejon so between the Barnes bullets and Tejon being in condor zone I won't be shooting or hunting with or there ever...
Chukar, always knew of these birds but never really had a desire to chase them and try for a shot then one cool afternoon while hunting in Tehachapi near the little town of Caliente I came across a whole covey of them perched out on an outcropping and said to myself I can go up the back side and...
Wood worker for too many years, if the dings chipped or opened the finish then steam will penetrate and it can turn the clear coat to a whitish blah and you can't fix that properly unless you strip the whole thing. Leave it be or refinish the whole stock and ding it up again and again. It's...
Congrats, That's a great deer, I got that tag back in 2002 got a 26" 3x3 with a cheater and like yours no eye guards. I see lots of big forkies up there it was real hard for me not to take one, after all was said and done I regret not doing it. I like the unusual type deer forkies, 1x3's, club...
The Bad lands out behind the town of Niland and a bit north. Actually anywhere out there and don't hesitate to hunt the fields. Where there is vegetables and water there are rabbits, where there are rabbits there are Coyotes. The Canals are good produces as well.
If you are a victim of this you are 100% better off by replacing the trigger a quality unit such as a Timney or Jewel or Rifle Basix rather then let Remington put another POS on it, not to mention the time they will have your rifle for the process. Could be many months due to the number of...
Some of theses states have OTC tags as well as guaranteed outfitter tags they cost a bit more but no hassle, no wait, no worries. The Outfiiters/Guides get them for you. Try this one www.blackhawkoutfitters.com
My Son-n-law lives in near Houston Texas and fishes quite a bit both lake and Ocean he stated that he needs a fishing jacket and it has to be water repellent or water proof, What are you guys using. Christmas is coming and I would like to get him something Budget $100-$150 Than you.
Problem is the amount of hunters that hunt the areas you guys are talking about, put them together on any given day and they can all hold hands from one end of the zone to the next. Trophy Deer are where you are not.
I'm gonna try one outing for Bear in the Independence area I have stumbled on a great little valley that holds a few, problem is it's a long shot and a hard walk out up hill. I have a Game cart but it's not like a ATV so I may need to coheres a local guy for some help if I connect with one.
I do not drink, I'm not down on myself, Bummed? that I am. I live to hunt and unfortunately I have a bad heart and this was a bad year for me, Reason for the post is I am genuinely happy for those who were successful at getting their trophy or just meat for the freezer. I enjoy reading the posts...
Congratulations to all that have taken Deer and Elk and Sheep thus far this year and good luck to the remaining Hunters still pursuing their animals. Unfortunately I had to pass on hunting all species this year so no good times afield for me. Maybe next year.
Met with Mike down in SD to pick this up it's pretty darn cool I am fine tuning it just to make some very minor adjustments I don't want to alter it too much since it was made by someone else. I'll get some pics up soon. Thank's Mike for the whole deal and it was good to meet you and chat a bit.
If your fence is individual panels like tongue and groove, every single panel is it's own they will twist, bend, expand and contract in all of the ways plastic, Vinyl, composite, ect, ect do your primer and your paint won't tolerate it more then two or three times. You will see torn, chipped...

She says just a small table of sorts and she's thinking 6 decks total I'm going to have her draw a picture so I can get a better grasp of what she want's as I have to build it. I'm thinking one for a bench/seat as well.
Short story, my Daughters best friend lost her life to a brain aneurism this year. This girl has a 3 year son that loves skateboards and my daughter wants to make him a skate board deck table and seat for his room, I think it will take 7 decks to complete the project. If anyone has an old or...
When you take a good Deer from D-12 or D-17 you've hunted your ass off and on the D-17 I'm not talking about the resident Midhills Deer. That's all, Oh for you Oregon hunters look into getting a tag for Christmas Valley!
There are plenty of Bears from before Lone Pine all the way up to the upper Nevada border and don't over look the White/Inyo mountains either. The later the season the better they are super easy to see in the snow.
Got 2 things to give to who ever needs them.
1 pair of Bibbs, natural gear camo, size=med, new
1 heavy long sleeve shirt, mossy oak Duck blind camo, size= medium, new
just pay flat rate shipping probably $12 each
Really, you would pay a home depot laborer $124-$150 a day! There are thousands of skilled Americans that don't make that, pay one of them. One thing I will give you however on the rods, they are Ken-kores and they have a following but not at $500 maybe 1/2 that with the custom wrap.

Tejon is a hell of a hunt for being just outside of LA, and it's HUGE, with high odds of seeing Deer,Antelope,Bear,Elk,Cougar and all kinds of varmints. Best hunting in the West. Camping is primitive but the cabins are first rate. I like it here when it snows.
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...

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.

Other than maybe you got skunked from lack of know how if you have actually ever been, but from your statement I believe you have not, can you please elaborate. The Tejon Ranch is as good as Pig hunting gets other than being on a large private ranch with no other hunters at all.
A side-x-side is sometimes hard for people to shoot or should I say hit their intended target with, something about being more familier with looking at a single barrel. I personally dont know? I like em both.
In Cali and most other states the tag stays with the so called trophy.. ie.. Head,hide,Antlers no matter the game. I have never left nor been asked by a butcher for tag info but then only been killing creatures for 35 years. I dont blame you for wanting a good definite answer tho being a non...

OK well a rifle blank that is, it's Fiddleback/Curly Maple and it has nice grain on both sides took me a while to find it. It has one coat of finish on one side and I sanded the other just to see what it looked like bare. My project has been grounded so Cash is king. I want what I paid for it...
The whole system is a piece of crap. I gave up on Cali when they changed to the point system knowing all a long it would only get worse. Before that I put in for 21 yrs straight. Elk,Pronghorn,Sheep, every year. Never drew and now forget it. SOOOOO much easier to get out of state non resident...
