    ATN customer Service

    Thats pretty common with ATN. Pros to ATN is the cost, cons to ATN is if something happens your on your own.

    Black Bear Hunting, 2017

    Actually the taxidermy is not done yet. Thats a whole new story, and not nearly as good of one as the hunt was. My Taxidermist sent the cape for tanning, his tanner had it for 9 months before going out of business, forcing me to start at the back of a new tanners line.

    Best <$1000 spotting scope

    Here are some Refurbished Vortex Spotters that you might want to look at. They get even cheaper in the cart

    Thanks. The bad thing is, its like when someone kills a 200 inch whitetail their first time out. Its going to be hard to top that experience.

    What muzzle break?

    Understood. Most breaks have a .02-.05 overbore. I was curious as to the effects of .26-.29 overbore

    What muzzle break?

    I've always ordered 30 cal break for 30 cal rifle, etc. My main concern is losing performance for ordering 30 cal break for 28 cal rifle.

    Need a new scope. What are your thoughts?

    I own 15 Vortex product's. I had to use their warranty once when I cross threaded a sunshade. I hardly think that's their fault, but I'm glad them helped me out.

    What muzzle break?

    Are you guys running a 7mm muzzle break, or 30 cal? If your running the 30 cal, what do you think the effect is on felt recoil? Im actually doing a 28 nosler, but this section seemed the most appropriate. Im having trouble finding my go to break's in 7mm which poses the question.

    Black Bear Hunting, 2017

    We were hunting a long creek line (roughly 3 miles from end to end) with a driving road up the middle. We pulled in the gate about 30 minutes after first light. Every morning we spend glassing a few spots. When we pull in, about 50 feet up the road the guide hits the brakes and yells "bear" We...

    Black Bear Hunting, 2017

    I got my first bear yesterday. I killed it in Halfway Oregon with pine valley outfitters. It was a beautiful cinnamon bear, and the most exciting hunt Ive ever done. I know its not long range to most, but I dropped the bear in its tracks at 4 yards (not a typo) while it was running at me...

    Update, I found a load with 150 grain interlock's my rifle likes. It doesnt shoot as straight as my Amax load, but it will do.

    Oh god, not another caliber debate thread.

    Im basically to the point of flipping a coin (28 nosler, and 7stw) when I get to the point of pulling the trigger on parts, and running it. I have do doubt I will swear up and down it was the right decision a few years down the road no matter what I do.

    Oh god, not another caliber debate thread.

    I would agree that I dont need to, but in I'm doing a custom build I see no reason not to go with the best caliber. If for nothing else a little forgiveness in range estimation.
