Nice Lope and I am partial to Savage target actions. Mine is a 6mm Norma BR. and will be shooting 105 gr. Berger VLDs. topped off with a new Vortex Viper PST FFP MOA scope with a Vortex custom turret that is dead nuts out to 400 plus yards which is about the ethical limit of my load.

Good luck this year,

joseph

Re: 2 weeks til wyo antelope

Nice to hear it is such a popular spot; I've got 4 doe tags and one buck tag for PH in area #7 near New Castle, Wy. Just over 17 days and counting!!!!!!!!!!!

My son and I have been practicing together all summer; he turns 8 tomorrow and, while he may not shoot out there he could if the law allowed. As of now he'll be spotting for me and my 257 Ackley:



I'm taking two 30-06s as well. One is my Mauser M-1996 scoped (my "meat getter") as a back up for the Ackley and my SC-Built '03-A3 with a Williams reciever sight that has yet to be bloodied.

I'm meeting my gunsmith and his son who is about the same age as mine and we're tent camping on BLM land. Promises to be a fantastic time, as I'm sharing my first real western hunt with one of my favorite hunting partners!

Good luck all,

efw

Re: 2 weeks til wyo antelope

42769vette,

What caliber is your rifle?

I was going to by the same scope as yours, but my wife got REALLY lucky and ordered a Vortex Viper 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope and got it for my 6mm Norma BR. with a Brux 26" 1 in 8" twist barrel.

: We are leaving the 25th. of this month for Gillette, Wyoming.
