Re: Hunting with tactical rifle?

Hoser, you hit on a sensitive subject here, sensitive 'cause we "love" to take our heavy guns hunting! Why be normal? And, what exactly is "normal?"
Hey, WW, why didn't you put the rest of your gear in that photo?

Hunting with tactical rifle?

Just wondering:
Have any of you ever taken your tactical rifle out hunting, like a 308 heavy-barrel Marine sniper rifle? I'm not talking about the adjustable cheek type, but rather the type with a sporter stock. It's set up like this one: http://www.edbrown.com/cgi-bin/htmlo...71571012666638

I'm pretty new to rifles and an aquaintance is offering to sell me his and I'm wondering if it's portable enought to take hunting -- you know, trying to justify purchase by extending the use!. But I'd like realistic feedback. Not sure of exact weight yet but I thought I'd ask here.

Sorry if this is a "rookie" questions, but hey, I'm a rookie. Thanks.

Yep, been there, done that, had a blast!

It teaches good use of mildots/scopes, ballistics from range finding solutions, & quick windage. Great fun on coyotes out to 500!

Hey Whisper man, I'm always interested in the gear a guy carries. It allows me to modify my own pack if I see an idea I like. And I KNOW how heavy MY pack is!
