re: Remington 783 heavy barrel “16.5” reviews - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I just bought my son for Christmas a Savage Axis II XP in 7mm-08 off GunBroker for $369. There was a $60 rebate so it was $309+$20 FFL transfer. This one came with the 3-9x40 Nikon BDC scope as well. Can't wait to see how it shoots.[/quote] It's gonna shoot good. :bow:...

re: 6.5 Creedmoor deer ammo - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Ive had four deer killed w the sst and everyone of them blew up on contact. If they had been marginal shots I would’ve never found a drop of blood[/quote] What part of the deer did the bullets hit? How far were the shots? I hunt w/ a 15" handgun in 260 Rem and am considering what bullets t...

re: Top 22 rifles for small game - TigerOnThe Hill
WM, When I'm on a squirrel hunt I'm using a Ruger 10/22, Ruger 77/22 or Savage bolt action 17 Mach 2. If you're looking for a semi-auto, I'd get a 10/22. OTOH, if you're leaning toward a bolt, I'd look for the gun that's #1 on my "bucket list," a CZ 452 American. I'm hoping to get one either for C...

re: Jerry Sullivan's Future at LSU - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]First, in regards to Joseph, he gets some blame for the WR play too. I mean someone just named 2 players who he recruited.. Big deal. Get someone who can do both for God's sakes. LSU can't find anyone who can recruit AND coach WRs? Really? So we have to find someone else to hold Joseph's hand...

re: contempt referee showed for Greedy - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Notice also...the official looking right at the play IN FRONT OF HIM waved it off as incomplete. [/quote] Excellent point. And the official near the goal line had a much better view of the hand fighting going on between both players than did the one who threw the flag. And like someone else...

re: Any of y'all shoot .22 hornet? - TigerOnThe Hill
Disclaimer: I don't have 22 Hornet, but I've read a lot about it. The main drawbacks re: the 22 Hornet commonly seen are: accuracy problems; problems w/ availability of factory ammo/brass. An improved version was developed, 22 K-Hornet, to deal w/ some of the deficiencies of the regular Hornet. Usin...

re: Ballistics Question - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Why sight a 7 mag in at 100 yards?[/quote] Depending on the distances and areas one hunts, dead on at 100 yards (or a little high) can be a good idea. I don't shoot a 7 Mag, but I have my XP-100 handguns sighted to hit 1/2" to 1" high at 100 yards. Doing so, I'm zeroed at 150-170 yards. W...

re: Help me pick a Rifle - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I got a Bighorn Origin action and am using Savage prefit barrels available anywhere. Will save a bunch of money and as long as you know how to set headspace its easy to put them together. [/quote] For the guy who wants to try a "DIY gun project", that's a very good idea. Using inexpens...

re: Help me pick a Rifle - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Another option is to buy a rifle with a Savage or Remington action and replace the barrel for a Proof Research carbon fiber and replace the trigger. [/quote] Another option would be to be the bare action, thereby saving the expense of a factory barrel that's not going to be used. The Savage ...

re: Did anyone else notice the sideline thing between Jefferson and McMath - Rice game. - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Players are taught to move on and not dwell on mistakes. Can't let one mistake lead to more mistakes.[/quote] So you're saying not dwelling on the first drop prevented him from having a second drop? That didn't work too well for him..... :banghead:...

re: First hunting rifle. Stainless barrel? And caliber question. - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I can see folks probably don't put in the scope time that I do to discover issues like I did. Its ok Im very picky about my gun consistency on long range shots.[/quote] Actually, I bet there are a number of folks here who put in a lot of range time and also put a premium on a gun's accuracy....

re: Best rifle/caliber combo with little to no recoil - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I would bet any amount of money my 110gr Barnes penetrates deeper than an Accubond. [/quote] I doubt that, but it's an interesting idea. I don't have the time nor interest to check it out myself. Shooting the 2 bullets into a 3 foot stack of water soaked newspaper will tell one for sure. Hav...

re: Best rifle/caliber combo with little to no recoil - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]The caliber does not matter. I shoot 270wsm and 90% of the deer I shoot run off. I have needed a dog for the last few and made great shots with no blood trail at all. I shoot Barnes 110gr TTSX clocked at over 3500fps. Shot a doe last year that ran 60yds with a complete pass through and no blo...

re: Best rifle/caliber combo with little to no recoil - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Thanks for the link to the recoil chart. That is useful.[/quote] It surely is. But be sure and compare the reduced recoil loads of the "bigger" rounds (e.g. 7-08) w/ the full power loads of the "smaller" rounds (e.g. 243 Win). You'll see the reduced recoil "bigger" rounds have less recoil th...

re: Best rifle/caliber combo with little to no recoil - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I just want to give a little advice on many of the responses that we see in this thread concerning the 7mm-08 Hornady Low Recoil 120GR SST cartridge. This bullet is designed for RAPID expansion upon entry and NOT pass through shooting. This bullet is absolutely lethal and will destroy the...

re: Best rifle/caliber combo with little to no recoil - TigerOnThe Hill
The 300 BlackOut, 300/221 or 300 Whisper would be a great youth gun. Others I'd recommend are the 6.5 Grnedel (especially for the AR platform), 260 Rem, 6.5 CM, 7-08 Rem and 308 Win. I imagine all of the above rounds will have more recoil than the 223, but she may still be able to shoot one well; y...

re: 300 BLK Bolt Action - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I have personally witnessed with my own two eyes, two deer being lost to a .260. This was taking my little cousin hunting. I saw the impacts through binos. We never found either of the deer. Solid hits but no blood trails. Im sure people kill plenty with it but im not sold on it yet. [/quote...

re: 300 BLK Bolt Action - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]And FYI if someone offers you a .260 or a .280 you punch them in the face and don't be friends with them anymore.[/quote] This is either a sarcastic comment where the poster forgot to engage "the sarcasm emoji" or a really uninformed statement. What did you mean to say?? :confused:...
