Re: What do you think of this gun
Use a rifle that is comportable for you to shoot with, irregardless of caliber and don't let anyone talk you into not using it. Me and my buddy hunt muleys here in our state using 300 Win Mags. I used 180 grain Hornady BTSP for my Factory Model 70 Laredo LRH, he use 200 grain Barnes X bullet for his Shillen barreled Sendero in H&S Precision Tactical stock. We both use Leupold 4.5X14X50 VariX-III Tactical mil-dot. Now, someone might think thats overkill, considering majority of the deer we harvested were in 120 to 130 lbs. in weight. But who will tell my friend that. Although he own several rifles, he always used the 300 Win Mag and that 200 grain Barnes everytime he goes hunting, whether the quarry is bison, elk, coues deer, mule deers, bears, coyote, ground squirrels, bobcat etc...etc....He is so comfortable with that rifle that it's like an extension of his arm. He seldom missed either. As a matter of fact, I can't remember seeing him missed.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.
