Re: my gun

I pickt up an axis for a light truck/carry gun in 25-06 last summer. The 25-06 barrel shot alright= MOA + or - but somehow the barrel magicly turned into a 6.5-284 Shaw barrel that is starting to show some promis with 140Amaxes and H4831sc.
A 16x IOR sits on it for now for load development but its likely to get a veriable powered mildot of some kind before hunting season.
Aught to make a good enough goat/deer getter???

Re: my gun

I would use what ever I had in my hand at the time. That being said, I am going North on an elk/fire damage scouting trip Labor Day weekend. Taking the bow for deer and the Remington 788 243, 58 gr V-max bullets, to use on coyotes, wolves, and what nots.

Doing the same thing in a week or so except no bow stuff. Taking a 270 AM in the pack (pack will be on a 4 legged critter) and Sig 556 on the shoulder. Me thinks my trophy buck spot has been burned out. Have to go look to find out.

Re: my gun

Designated Wolf rifle in front and designated elk rifle behind it. I would use a dam sling shot on one if it is what I had. but 10 rounds of 7.62x54r will probably work better. Elk dear and even bear get respect, wolves just get put down.
