Anyways, I own a Winchester Apex which is nothing more than a glorified CVA Kodiak Pro. I shoot 777 powder with Hornady SST 250 grainers and it would be hard for me to set that thing down for something else. I bought it for $278 dollars for the SS/black fleck version. Damn is it a fine shooter.
I did do idiot things like bedding the stock and Gun Koting the blackened steel parts, but other than that, its factory.
Spent thousands on long range gear only to take a mule deer at 128 yards.....
I don't mind how far off this has gone...to me it looks like it didn't go off subject at all. The more information the better. Thanks again to all so far. This looks like a helpful thread to anyone wanting to learn about ML.
If your state allows smokeless I would go that route, if not I would go with a knight disc rifle, they are one of the best rifles Knight produced if you wait til all the MLing seasons are over I've seen them as low as $200 even less. When buying a used ML'er be sure to ask for a 3 day inspection and reutrn guarantee. I always suggest to pay by Postal MO you have more rights in your favor this way. Keep a record of all transaction and correspondece with the other party. an ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure. Good Luck and Merry Christmas to everyone Lou
