You have that right about the laws. If you can't take time off you only get 2 weekends for deer and 2 weekends for elk. Even though I have all the time off I want, I still only get to hunt deer for 9 days and elk for 9 days.
I think next year the 'ol 7mm AM and I are going to go looking for some good hunts in another state.
To say I'm happy with the performance of the APS 7mm AM as well as the Wildcat bullets would be putting it mildly. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Both my deer and elk were smacked like a fly with a flyswatter. The Montana/Canada combo really puts the hurt on them big time.
By the way, I'm shooting the 200 grain Wildcat ULD RBBT's in my 7mm AM
I've shot a lot of game with a lot of bullets but the 200 gr. Wildcats out of the 7mm AM have a sound all their own. Even with ear plugs in, the impact sound is amazing and the instantaneous result of the impact is even better. The 'ol Nightforce makes it kind of like watching it all unfold on a big screen tv.
And yes, I also would say that Kirby is on a roll. Looks like he's gonna have something for everybody.
I'm still using the fire forming loads. I received the rifle the middle of our week of deer season and used part of a day to get some testing done and won't be working up the full tilt loads until after hunting season.
I've shot the fire form loads out to 1440 yards and they work great. One deer and one elk won't argue with that either. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
My fire form loads are at 2950 fps. I'll probably work up a full tilt load in the range of 3150 to 3250 fps. I'm far more interested in accuracy than velocity bragging rights. It doesn't matter how fast it's going if you cant hit it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
