Recently bought a Tikka Superlite in 7mm mag and topped it offf with a Huskemaw Blue Diamond. While collecting data for my custom turret I shot a 3" group at 500 and a 4" group at 800 yards. These groups were handloads using the 162gr. Amax's. I LOVE my Tikka and now LOVE my Huskemaw scope!
We had a lease for 12 years and took all the bucks prior to 04 on a private ranch. We eventually lost our lease so we had to find BLM land to hunt. From 04 to the present all our bucks come off of BLM land.
