re: Bergara B-14 Rifles - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]The 6.5 Creedmoor does everything that the .308 does but better.[/quote] Uh.......nope...... Granted, the Creedmore makes for a fine whitetail deer gun, but there are situations where the venerable 308 is superior . There are times it's advantageous to have 30 caliber holes in a deer instead...

re: Bergara B-14 Rifles - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]it just seems the 6.5CM has taken off. I see much more factory hunting rounds on shelves in my area than the 6.5 Swede. [/quote] Yeah, the Creedmoor is surely on more of an upswing right now than the 260 Rem and 6.5 Swede. This despite that fact that ballistically, all three are about the s...

re: Thinking about purchasing my first hand gun, and getting a license to carry - TigerOnThe Hill
PhilipMarlowe, Welcome to the wonderful world of handguns! :cool: As someone else already pointed out, self defense and concealed carry handguns are usually different animals. Considering that you're a newbie (and that's ok; we've all got to start somewhere), here are my personal recs (for what th...

re: What do you shoot? - TigerOnThe Hill
Thanks for the kind words, ST1. I've always enjoyed shooting guns, but especially handguns. In addition, I usually gravitated more to reading articles from handgun writers moreso than rifle writers. I started deer hunting w/ a Ruger Redhawk in 44 Mag. I read lot of handgun hunting articles in "The...

7WT, Member of the OB who own Kel-Tec, Hi-Point, Taurus and some others have to develop thick skin :lol: as they'll usually be subjected to frequent comments that vary from good hearted joking to outright ridicule. Don't worry, I also have two Kel-Tec handguns (PF9 and P3-AT) that have active role...

re: 308 or 6.5 Creedmoor - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Want to hunt deer and elk with it[/quote] If limited to deer only, I'd say either cartridge. If hunting elk is a possibility, then I'd say 308 Win every day of the week. I'd use at least a 165 gr or possibly a 180 gr controlled expansion bullet (e.g. a Nosler Partition). Remember, a bull elk...

re: Best place in Metairie to bore sight a rifle - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Bore sighting will only get you on the paper at 50 yards. More than likely its fine if it hasnt been touched, but actually shooting it would be the only worthwhile way to check[/quote] 1+. At this point, bore sighting would be of no use (and might make things worse)....

re: What do you shoot? - TigerOnThe Hill
Deer. This year it was mainly an XP-100 in 284 Win. I used 2 different handoads, a 145 gr Speer and 140 gr Nosler Accubond. [img]http://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab306/garyt1_6/Hunting%202016/C38F8FEE-F0F0-46DE-A666-B829054F94C4_zpsznkscrqr.jpg[/img] I also hunted unsuccessfully w/ an XP-100 i...

re: I Have Lost All Confidence in my Ability to Shoot a Rifle. - TigerOnThe Hill
Northern, Glad to hear you got your deer and had a good hunt. I was one of those who encouraged you to make some adjustments in your scope and shoot at 100 yds before hunting. I bet you felt a LOT more confident on your hunt (and enjoyed your hunt more) by having a lot better idea where your gun w...

re: I Have Lost All Confidence in my Ability to Shoot a Rifle. - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Get back to the basics and calm down.[/quote] Good advice. From your posts, I'm still not sure just how WELL your rifles are shooting. What kind of 3 shot groups do the guns shoot? What are you resting the guns on in the stand? Is the barrel resting on something? Where on the deer's body ...

re: Looking to buy my first rifle - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I ended up buying a Browning A-bolt 30-06 BDL with a Leupold VX-2 3-9x50. The scope is brand new and the gun is in mint condition. I was out the door with a case for $700. More excited about the scope than anything. Can't wait to shoot it. Have a couple hunting trips the next two weekends. [/...

re: Calling OB Ballistics Experts - TigerOnThe Hill
Ok guys, apparently, some of y'all were paying more attention than I was. :angry: I reran the #'s and I was wrong. The #'s I posted were w/ the gun hitting 1/2" HIGH at 25 yds. My mistake. Sighted 1/2" low at 25 yds as the OP stated, it should be 0.9" high at 100 yds, 1.7" LOW at 200 yds and 5.3" L...

re: Commander(ish) 1911s in 9mm - TigerOnThe Hill
Of the guns you mentioned, I have 1911's made by Metro Arms (American Classic 4.25" Commander) and Armscor (Citadel 3.5" Officer model). Armscor also makes Rock Island Arms handguns. I've been very happy w/ both of mine. Metro Arms and Armscor are all made in the Philippians but are well respected e...
