[quote]Whichever of the cheap winchester/federal/remington ammo is the most accurate. I'd stick to 130 grain for whitetail deer.[/quote]
This. The controlled expansion/bonded/premium $2/round loads will kill deer just fine, but they really aren't necessary for the run of the mill whitetail deer in ...

It may be my imagination, but did it appear to anyone else that as Les Miles walked up to her for the halftime interview she was taller than him. But during the interview she was same height or maybe a little shorter than him. I think she squatted just a little at the beginning of the interview so a...

Excellent point. You can also add the Ruger Redhawk and Super Redhawk to that list, as well. I've got a 5 1/2" Ruger RH that shoots heavy load 45 Long Colts quite well, but yes, they are a handful! ...

The 25-06 is good for any big game you'll come across around here. As mentioned, buy a 120 grain load (Remington Core-Lokt and Winchester Power Point are fine; the 25-06 doesn't require loads costing $50/box.)
As far as scopes, one way to save a little money w/o sacrificing quality is to buy a r...
