Re: What items to purchase
I guess I need to list whatelse I already have:
Leupold 4.5-14x50 Mark IV LR/T M1 scope
Stoney Point Bore guide
Stoney Point carbon cleaning rods
GM Top Engine cleaner
A Data Book
Dry Fire caps
I didn't just find this site yesterday and decide to become a long range shooter....I have lots of top quality tools already.....I want and need to use my money wisely to buy items that will assist in adding accuracy, consistency and performance....tools of the trade.....I have most of the little stuff.....like what's listed above. Chrony, Nice scope, nice optics etc..
For those of you unfamiliar with hunting out west.....its open, rugged and we have to walk a lot (on average 2-6 miles) so a drag back and 90lbs of out of the question and un-needed equipement is VERY unrealistic to haul around. If you going to get a shot at a coues whitetail buck your going to have to find them first then lay your sorry butt on the ground, get dirty and shoot off your pack or whatever else is available.....it is not like hunting back east......not that you guys back east don't have conditions similar to this but especailly here in Arizona you just arean't going to be hauling excess equipment around in 90-100 degree temps walking 2-6 miles up and down hills....one way!
With that said lets not derail this topic and I appreciate all inputs (no personal insult to Ian M......just need your opinions and input.
