Re: 1in11 twist rate in .300 what weight is best??
I do varmint hunt but not as much as I used to. Not many woodchhucks digging holes in the sandy soil of eastern NC. Yes I'm in North Carolina. I'm originally from NE PA and will be going back there for deer season in Nov. Hopefully a LR whitetail is in order. But venison is venison to me so if I can put some on the table with my '06 at 100yds so be it. But my 6.5-300 Win Mag and my 338 with all the gear will be setup for possible 1700yd shots. And a slim chance of around 2000 in one area. Most of the good shooting will be in the 700-1300yd range though. So my 6.5 will be the primary gun.
As for geese, I've never been goose hunting. Just never had the opportunity. But a small twist of the arm, I'm sure my 870 could be talked into it!

Besides I'll need some new things to do for when I retire.... someday a long ways off. But I'll keep your offer in mind. That's mighty kind of ya.
BTW: nice shooting on those pigeons! That's the way to open thier eyes!
Well gotta get ready for the big shooting match this weekend. I'll be off-line until Monday afternoon. Keep them pigeons on thier toes. Or better yet knock'um off thier toes. hehehe
