Gun Review: Savage Long Range Precision Varminter Rifle - TigerOnThe Hill
Last year my brother in law accompanied me on two prairie dog hunts, his first ever. He borrowed my bolt action Stevens 221 Fireball and my son’s bolt action Stevens 223 Remington; he also shot my son-in-law’s Remington 700 in 204 Ruger. He enjoyed the hunts so much he decided to buy his own pd gun....

re: Bergara B-14 Rifles - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I would personally be OK with using a 6.5 in the same situations as I would use a .308 for anything smaller than elk. [/quote] Using the right bullet, the 6.5 CM would be a reasonable choice for hunting all NA big game, outside of elk and dangerous bear. It would also be a really good youth...

re: I Got a New Toy (XDS) - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Any suggestions? I'd like an IWB but don't really know where to start. [/quote] If you're interested in IWB, I'd look at a "tuckable" holster in case you need to tuck your shirt, completely concealing your gun and holster. OTOH, a "tuckable" holster works just as well untucked. I find mys...

re: Bergara B-14 Rifles - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]My stating that 6.5 Creed does everything .308 does but better was in terms of ballistics. It will reach out to any range the .308 will but with flatter trajectory. [/quote] Well sorta.....it's entirely dependent on the ranges one's shooting. Since the OP mentioned he was looking at a huntin...

re: Winchester XPR Hunter bolt action - TigerOnThe Hill
I went to the gun show today in Bossier City and saw my first XPR. It felt pretty good and handled well. It does have a barrel nut, but unlike all the others the barrel nut is not notched so it won't a Savage barrel nut wrench. Your Cabela's price is a good bit cheaper than the gun show price. ...

re: Winchester XPR Hunter bolt action - TigerOnThe Hill
I'm not familiar w/ that particular gun. From what I can tell from the pic, the safety sure doesn't look like a Winchester M70. The fact that SHE likes it is a BIG vote in it's favor. And yes, I'd vote for the 7-08 instead of the 243. The 7-08 has a very nice balance of performance mixed w/ reason...

re: Recommendations for a good Range Finder - TigerOnThe Hill
I've been very pleased w/ my Nikon Monarch 800 range finder, but it's more than $200.

re: OB, I need advice on this reloading kit - TigerOnThe Hill
boatless, I'm going to resurrect your thread b/c I never actually addressed the kits you were looking at. There's nothing wrong w/ either one of them. If you can spend the extra money, I'd get the turret press instead of the Challenger. The turret press can be set up as either a single stage (most o...

re: OB, I need advice on this reloading kit - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]quote: The cost of all the shell holders for the Lee primer is $15. The hand primer is $35. So both hand primers are $50. The RCBS hand primer is a one-time cost whereas the Lee primer is $15 per cartridge you choose to load. So if you want to load 9mm, 40, and 45, the Lee will be $35 p...

I've got dies made by Hornady, Lee, RCBS, Forster and Redding; I don't have Lyman dies. Most of my dies say "Lee" on them. I've been ve...
