Re: The MOAG strikes again(1,066 yards)

Damn, the scenery made me drool. As far as your kill, I'm not surprised anymore when I see such threads from you, its to be expected [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks for posting pics and making most of us very jealous. I am always in awe when I see how big that rifle is.

Thanks for the river trivia. Actually, I have been doing quite a bit of trivia research on Montana since our trip there. Very good state for the most part, except for the liberal Commifornians moving in and trying to impose their beliefs on everyone. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Thanks Lerch.
According to Exbal, the bullet had 2660 ft/lbs of energy at that range. Plenty to poke right through and splinter bone.

Re: The MOAG strikes again(1,066 yards)

The action floats and all the barrel ahead of the barrel block floats. The whole thing is held together by the barrel block of which the bottom half is glued to the stock.

The aluminum barrel block may hold in some heat. It is becoming clear that it does have some insulating properties. Maybe we will have it fluted one of these days.

Re: The MOAG strikes again(1,066 yards)

Thanks for the heads up. I have eaten buff before but not of my own cooking. I will watch it closely. Is it better to cook slowly under low heat or sear it quickly under high heat to lock in the juices?

Thanks man.

It really is a good place to unwind and maybe even take in some hunting or fishing too!

I was thinking of moving out there soon. Any jobs available? Farm/ranch work? I need to get away from this lifestyle in ohio. Ive been saying that for 5 years and Im not getting any younger. I'll be 32 in a couple weeks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Colorado would be nice too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
