Re: 2008 Elk/Mulie vs 300 RUM

Thanks for the kind words. The mulie is at the taxidermists and I am looking forward to it getting back to me. Getting a decent mulie for the wall has honestly been a big hurdle for me to overcome - even more so than my bighorn sheep. Finally !!!

The Bansners stock (after all the fussing with inletting (read: not drop in), bedding and painting) is simply the best I have ever handled. However, it is custom fit perfectly to me. As you can see, I do not have a muzzle brake with this rifle, but with it's 14" LOP and 1" pac decel pad, it shoots like a dream. No issues with it all, so far.

    A large mule deer has always been on the top of my list. Hopefully my day will come soon.

    Is that the same Bansner stock they use on the Extreme Sheep Hunter? That is the only one I am familiar with. Good to know on the drop in/not so much...inlet.

    Thanks. Seeing as how you are not too far away, perhaps we can work something out, eh ?

    Well I just don't know if my season could ever get any better.

    After a spell of warm weather, cold and snow finally blew in. Nov 7, I was sitting in my treestand at first light to see what the prerut might bring. This big boy came out at the far end of the field and I took him at 340 yards with my 300 RUM. My rifle is zeroed at 330 yards so the shot was comfortable. The 180 Accubond hit him just behind the left shoulder and through the knuckle on the off shoulder - dropped him right where he stood, but no exit ! He grosses 181" and nets out of the book, but I could care less. He's the biggest WT I have seen, and I got him.
