    Didn't get my choice elk tag this year and ended up with a left over cow tag.

    Trying to decide what to use.

    I was planning on using my Model 70 Featherweight in 270 for Elk this year but maybe I should try an '06.

    The only '06's I have are vintage rifles, M1, M1903A3, M1917, and a real heavy Model 70 Vietnam Era clone, and of course my M1903a4.

    I think I'm gonna switch scopes on my 'A4. It has an old El Paso Weaver K 2.5, which would work except it's not sealed. Meaning it will probably fog.

    So I think I'll put on one of my Weaver hunting scopes and use it for Elk.

    I like and have had good luck with Hornady Inter-bonds, so I figure I'll load up some 180 IBs and take this old war horse after elk.

    I was going to use it for deer, but I think I'll use my '98 Krag for deer and my 'A4 for elk.

    Area 38, Big Horns.

    Not a thing, I have a Mode 70 Featherweight in 270 that would make Jack proud. Sweetest rifle I have.

    But,

    They don't make a M1903A4 in 270 Win. And I want to do something with it besides shoot CMP Vintage Sniper Matches (Which I enjoy).

    Almost always I'll take a couple rifles along and switch every couple of days. It's hell to be in love with so many ladies.
