re: Does anyone reload 223 ammo?
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 12/26 at 12:49 pm
[quote]Have you checked gunbot.net?[/quote] Yep, regularly. Availability of Vihtavuori powders has been even more spotty than other powders. I did manage to get 8# of N133 from Gunbot a few mos ago. I think production of N130 has basically been placed on hold for a couple of years w/o Vihtavuori hav...

[quote]I'll help find you some N130[/quote] Man, I'd be very indebted! :cool: I bought 2# from the gunsmith who did the work on my 6 BR 2 yrs ago, but that's ALL I've been able to find. I've sent multiple emails to Vihtavuori, but they've yet to respond. My 22 BR really likes N130. :bow:...

I agree w/ Propagandwolf. [quote]In this scenario the firearm needs to go through an FFL. If it's still in pieces he can ship the parts to you, but the receiver needs to go to an FFL for transfer. UPS and FedEx will ship guns for non-ffs... If he wants to send it USPS he can go through an FFL in G...

Thanks for the link, lsuguy13. Admittedly, I've not kept up w/ the story of JJ after transferring to McNeese. The article also did a decent job of weaving the details together. Sure it's not Pulitzer Prize worthy, but it was still a decent article. It's unfortunate how JJ's messed up his life, espec...

[quote]Shot the gun today and it was 3-1/2 inches to 4 inches low consistently. [/quote] Beginning to sound more like a "brisket" shot. That shot shouldn't be fatal unless wound gets infected later on. You might well get another chance at that buck someday. [quote]Thanks for the help and advi...

Dayne O, I feel your pain as I've had that happen to me twice, although both were does. I hate to be the contrarian here, but there's a good chance that deer is NOT dead. Both times that happened to me, I hit much higher than I intended: once because my point of impact had shifted somewhere betwee...

[quote]Great out of the box rifle and a good choice of caliber for any medium to large North American game. [/quote] 1+. If someone wants to spend $800 for a gun and $700 for a scope that's fine.....BUT one can get started hunting for a lot less, as well. The first time I used the link I could s...

Nice gun, PL. :cool: I've tried a lot of different bases and rings through the years, but now I only use a Weaver base (either a 1 or 2 piece) and Burris Signature Z rings (the ones w/ the plastic insert). As long as you're using a scope w/ an objective diameter of 40 mm or less, you should be ok w...

re: Recommend a good outdoor book to read while on the stand
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 12/23 at 11:22 pm
Not really an "outdoor" book, but it is gun related and a great read. My vote goes to "Point of Impact" by Stephen Hunter. The 2007 movie, "Shooter", starring Mark Wahlberg, was based on this book. As almost always happens, the book was better than the movie. If you enjoy POI, you'll want to read th...

A few ????s to help clarify the situation: Distance to the deer? WHERE were the crosshairs on the deer when you shot? Was it a clear shot or was there branches, saplings and such between you and the deer? Did you find ANY signs of a hit deer, e.g. hair, fat or bone? I don't know what to think ...

Lots of good recs so I'll not muddy the water further by telling you to buy the scpecific bolt action rifles I have right now. Tikka gets a lot of love on the OB and I'm sure they make fine rifles, but there are a number of other non-Tikka rifles a person can buy, hunt w/ a number of years and use t...

Langston, It's good that you're looking out for your wife. Having said that, the best chance you have of a new gun working out for HER, you need to make sure the gun she ends up w/ is HER selection. Point her generally in the best direction, but let her make the final decision. My personal thou...
