Highly recommended on the OB, I bought a tikka hunter a few weeks ago in 270 wsm.
Finally got to sight it in today and I must say, my lord that Rifle is incredible. The trigger is absolutely flawless. Only took 3 shots to get sighted in, then my brother and I both shot groups just under an inch....
| Outdoor Board|| Teach me about WSM's - SportTiger1 on 12/13/13 at 2:16 pm|
I recently bought a 270 wsm for deer hunting. Very excited about it, but comparing the WSM's to their long action counterparts, it got me to thinking.
What gives the WSM more velocity than the regular Magnums, shooting the same weight bullet? Is it just more powder loaded, or some kind of physics...
| Outdoor Board|| I hate a thief. (57657995 edition) - SportTiger1 on 12/6/13 at 11:16 pm|
Had two deer feeders stolen sometime in the past few days on a pipeline. I'd like to think hunters/outdoorsmen are better and more respectful people, but it just isn't true is it? They had to come from the lease right next to us because one feeder had 250 lbs of corn in it, protected the other direc...
| Outdoor Board|| Need assistance with Scope mounting - SportTiger1 on 12/4/13 at 12:36 pm|
I just picked up my new Tikka Hunter last night. What an awesome rifle.
I'm trying to take out the little plugs in the top of the receiver where the scope base screws in. 3 of them unscrewed and came out perfectly fine, but 1 is pushed down in the hole and has no head to unscrew. They are plastic...

Got this message. What's this mean? Is there seriously a law restricting a little chunk of machined metal across borders?

| Outdoor Board|| Help me pick a new Rifle - SportTiger1 on 11/5/13 at 1:01 pm|
I've been shooting the infamous Rem 7400 for about 15 years, and its been decent to me. But i've been looking for a new Bolt Action for awhile, in the 400-500 range.
Last night my folks call, and told me to go pick out whatever rifle i want, their treat, under 1k. Obviously this opens up my selec...

Am I the only one hunting a this muggy Monday afternoon? Looking for big daddy.

Sitting on a pipeline where I can see 600 yds each way. What's the bullet drop on a 150 grain at 600 yds anyways? Ya know, just in case.
| Outdoor Board|| Can this deer still be mounted? - SportTiger1 on 10/23/13 at 1:10 pm|
I killed this buck about 4 years ago. Been sitting in the freezer ever since, because I can't decide what to do with him. Definitely the largest deer i've killed, but not a 'pretty' or symetrical rack by any means.
First, can it still be shoulder mounted after being frozen that long? And, what wo...

Now how the hell to I kill this little sucker? I've poured poison down the hole with no success. Has any one tried gassing him out with you exhaus...
| Tiger Rant|| New numbers..all season? - SportTiger1 on 8/29/13 at 11:09 pm|
I'm sure someone knows, are the new numbers and longer strips permanent changes? I don't usually panic over uniforms but the numbers are horrid.
If permanent, I see a TD.com petition in the near future. ...
| Tiger Rant|| 1000 yd receiver this year? - SportTiger1 on 8/10/13 at 10:00 pm|
Who do you think will be the leading receiver this year and will we have one go over 1000 yards?
We haven't had a 1000 yd receiver since Michael Clayton in 2003. RR2 came close in 2011 though
I really think Landry has a great year and gets over 1000.

Since the OB seems like the Mechanics Board these days, and for good reason, i'm looking for yall's assistance.

Im planning on building a detached garage in the next month or so and im just trying to get an IDEA of what it might cost me to do so. Anyone have any experience recently with something similar? Are we talking 5k, 10k, 15k??

My wife accidently shot all of my JHPs last weekend thinking they were practice rounds, so i'm out. I've been using Fed HydraShoks for a while but I'm probably going to be switching. That is, when some become available in 9mm. :angry:
I've been watching a bunch of Ballistic testing on Youtube and...
| Outdoor Board|| S&W MP Shield vs. Ruger SR9c - SportTiger1 on 1/11/13 at 1:47 pm|
Assuming I can find one of these for a good price(not much luck lately), which one would the OB choose?
I really like the size of both of them. The Ruger weighs a bit more, but also comes with a 17rd extended mag. I'm sure both would be good guns for what i'm looking for, but main goal is a good...

I couldn't find a website to answer my question so I figured my OB brothers could help.
My dad and I both got the Redfield 52mm scopes for Christmas to put on our new hunting rifles. I'm trying to figure out how tall the rings need to be to clear a space between the scope and the barrel. Looking ...
| Outdoor Board|| Thoughts on the Bersa Thunder 380 - SportTiger1 on 12/11/12 at 12:12 pm|
The wife mentioned the other day she would like a handgun and start going to the range to shoot. I was leaning towards just getting a Ruger .22 or something, but i would rather her be able to use it in a self defense situation if needed. So the .380 is my compromise between cheap and power.
