Hi, I'm from Texas, but I don't brag about much

I've been hunting for over 35 years now and really enjoy it. I was born in Kansas and moved all around the country with my military family. Don't regret anything about moving around so much.

Since moving back to Texas in 1999, I've been on several hog hunts, one hunt in the Palo Dura Canyon area and the rest have been in South Texas, around Corpus Christi. I've been using a .280 Rem in a Weatherby Mark V Ultra Light, highly recommended. Recently moved up to a 30-06 springfield bolt action rifle which I was going to tell you all about.

Thanks for the time.

    I'd go ahead and brag some, if I were you. I'm in Western OK, "fly over country". TX & OK are still some of the 'freest' parts of the country, and, we like it!

    Welcome to the site! Ton of good info and knowledgable people(me excluded ).
    Just got back from a hog hunt in central Texas (hill country). I really envy you. I love Texas. Once I'm done with school I'm pretty sold on studying down there.

    I recently bought a Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather in 30-06. I haven't taken any game with this rifle yet, however, I've developed a good load for it. Surprisingly, I chose a bullet with a cannelure, that shoots exceptionally well. The Hornady SST 165 grain. I've always thought that good reloading procedures included that you seat the bullet ogive no further than ten thousandths of an inch away from the lans and groves of the barrel. However, this rifle responded to a cartridge that is roll crimped on the cannelure, and is seated 1/8" (ogive) off of the lans and groves!!! I am consistently getting less than 1-inch groups at 100 yards. More times than not, if I shoot a large group it was because I hurried the shots. Anyway, I'm extremely happy. (I tried other brands of premium bullets, but this rifle has responded to the H brand and IMR-4831). I plan to use this load on my next hog hunt. Sorry about getting so windy. This combination may work in your 30-06, too. I'll post this stuff in "Reloading" next time.

    Thanks for the very kind welcome. Glad to be here.
