  • Getting ready for deer season!

    Gotta check the scope on my go-to rifle, a Remington 788 in .308 that's been tuned up a little bit. Deadly accurate with 165grn NBT's.

    Gotta get my daughter's rifle ready for her first ever deer hunt.

    I've got a new-to-me rifle coming in, a custom build on an Interarms Mark X actions in .338-06 Ackley Improved. Too much rifle for Georgia deer, but that's not what I bought her for. I am gonna hunt some with it this year, if I can get some loads worked up for it. I figured a 200grn Nosler Accubond going at close to 3000fps oughta do it!

    Also started getting ready for my annual deer pilgrimage to SE Ohio. For the first time we can use rifles up there, provided it's a straight-walled cartridge (no bottleneck designs......fuckin' Yankees). Again, it's too much gun, but I already have a .444 Marlin that I built years ago, so I'll be using her. Mounting a Burris 1-6x24mm LRS on her.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

        Oh, it's definite overkill, but better too much than too little!

            With handloads and lighter bullets, like 180grns, you can duplicate the .338 Winchester Magnum.

                      So it's ethical to hunt deer with a .50 cal (M-2)?

                        I wouldn't do it, but I don't have a problem with it, if you're able to ensure your backstop.

                            If you shoot the front end, you can eat the back end, and vice versa.
