Since you are in the NO area, send your photos to the horticultural extension agent (Chris Dunaway) in Orleans parish for assessment of whether or not he thinks it’s brown patch, which I understand is now referred to “large patch”.

[quote]Lead sled?[/quote] :lol: Yes, lead sled, is that the likely cause of the scope moving? Too much resistance against the recoil? I never thought of that but if so it makes sense. If so, I’ll stop using it. Honestly, I’m not all that impressed with lead sled anyway. ...

re: .35 Whelen shooters. - CrawDude
CVA Elite Stalker. 200gr Soft Point Hornady Superformance I’m happy with the way they shoot in my rifle. Be sure to torque your scope rings to proper specs, maybe consider using blue loctite on scope ring threads. My scope moved in the rings a couple weeks ago when sighting it in. ...

[quote]12 Crew 4x4 10k# Warn Winch, Leather w/190k. $17k [/quote] Sounds like you got a deal.
