Re: Icelandic Reindeer hunting

What kind of rifle is that with the muzzle break? Give us the scoop on it. Looks like you downed a few of those with head shots. Good shootn right there.

    Wow that looks like a riot and looks like you can get some pretty good distance out of the shooting! Whats your setup for your rifle?
