    Shoulder shots

    We don't need to shoot it, this old horse has been beat to death many times over. You pick the best spot according to the conditions you have.

    Is a 9lb rifle too heavy? Opinions?

    The new trend is ultralight rifles. I like heavy barrelled stought rifles, not pencil barrelled ones. It's easier, cheaper & better for the shooter to lose 5#.

    We (or should I saw the ammo & gun makers) need about20 more 6.5s. I have 6.5 x55, 6.5 creedmoor, 6.5-300 weatherby. Small, medium & large.

    How High do bullets go in their flight trajectory

    I shoot golf balls on cord & 1.5" high steel eggs with 22lr subsonic at 300 yards for practice & the bullet goes 12' high.

    Flattest of the bunch....

    6.5-300 Weatherby is the Best & Fastest, ammo has deopped to mid $40 foe real Weatherby 140s & I paid $459 OTD for an SI exclusivewith a fluted theaded barrel. I know it's made by Howa but have had great luck with Howa for years.

    Fastest 6.5 w/ 1k rnd barrel life?

    Prove to me my new Weatherby 6.5-300 won't go 1000+. Forget the rest & buy the BEST! Weatherby factory ammo just fropped to 1/2 price, mid $40 for the 140s.

    Maine Black Bear Hunt!!!!

    I use starline brass, 405gr hard cast.I load 50 gr. of Varget into the shell and tapped the shell a bit to level and settle the powder. I then used my caliper to measure from the top of the shell to the top of the powder. Next I took this measurement to my lead bullet, I found from that the...

    Maine Black Bear Hunt!!!!

When they know you're there they lay out of sight close & smap their teeth wanting you to leave. We normally ran gogs at dawn with a friend, rebaiting our stands at the...

    Maine Black Bear Hunt!!!!

    I've killed a lot of bear in Western UP of Michigan & Savage 12BVSS nailed it. Short range, low light, most will make you work hard to retrieve them. I used a 45/70 Contender handgun for years then a 450 Marlin in a BFR & a Marlin guide gun using heavy hard cast to break 'em down. I seldom heard...

    Weatherby 6.5 RPM?

    Just picked up the Weatherby 6.5-300 Accuguard fluted/theaded & love it! Very smooth & you can feel the quality. How can you buy a rifle this nice for under $500? I couldn't be happier.
