Re: How Much Will You Spend On Hunting & Shooting Stuff In The Next 12 Months?

I'm right in the middle of a project rifle myself...not a full custom or anything though.

It began as a Winchester model 70 Ultimate Shadow ($680), I have a McMillan stock ordered ($562), and I'm in the process of trying to pick a scope (somewhere between $400 and $600).

The end result should be my idea of the perfect hunting rifle for me based on things I think I think after 30 years of hardcore deer hunting...I'm planning on treating myself to some rather expensive hunts in the coming years...I wanted a rifle that fit me and was dead nuts reliable...or at least as much as any mechanical device can be.

I would rather have had it in 280 AI...but that will have to wait until it gets rebarreled, I'm not gonna waste the barrel thats on it, I believe it will be at least a .5 MOA rifle when all is said and done...too good to waste...besides, the 30-06 may be old, but it still works.

Looks good. since your estimate on a scope is modest. You might look at a
Barska 10x40x50. It repeats to zero every time. has decent optics.
I've been shooting mine for five months and it keeps getting better,
It also has electronic reticles and parallax corection. I'm out to 550 yds
and ready to range out some more.

I have alread exceeded my estimate on what I will spend on Hunting and shooting this year. The well is beging to dry up.

Practice Practice and Practice.

I suspect the water table is low for quite a few folks and going to get even lower and drier as the European debt crisis spills over into our economy.

Come on now, those are relatively inexpensive. I believe I'd have gotten the dead hold but thats just me.

Those were in stock at Cameraland and OP last Thursday....

I'm just a truck driver...$500 is a good bit of $$$ around here

I just figured the dead hold reticle was too thin...I like duplex anyway, except I've always thought most were too thick...the V-Plex is way thinner than most other duplex reticles...I'm hoping its just what I've been looking for.

Yes, there are lots of scopes in the bigger sporting goods stores.
shop then pick out those that come close to your criteria and arrange
a try on and look session. A lot of stores are more accommodating in
these trying times, than in the past. Every one needs to make a buck.
Even the small guys.

I drew a Rifle Buck tag this year. So it's Archery Hunting for ELK and

that means Practice Practice and Practice.
